Nuclear medicine technologists use a scanner to create images of various areas of a patient’s body. They prepare radioactive drugs and administer them to patients undergoing the scans. The radioactive drugs cause abnormal areas of the body to appear different from normal areas in the images. Technologists also use gamma cameras, uptake probes and other specialized equipment to obtain information about the structure and function of virtually every major organ system of the body.
