Hamilton Health Sciences provides Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging services at all three Hospitals, that serve the needs of diverse adult patient populations. In addition, the McMaster University Medical Centre provides services to the pediatric population.
Nuclear Medicine involves the use of small amounts of radioactive materials (often called “tracers”) to help diagnose and treat a variety of diseases, from pediatrics to cardiology to oncology. Nuclear Medicine helps to determine the cause of the medical problem based on the function of a tissue, organ, or system. Nuclear Medicine tests are safe and painless. In a Nuclear Medicine test, the radioactive material is introduced into the body by injection, ingestion, or inhalation.
All patients are referred through their family doctor or through a specialist that they may be seeing.
