Nuclear Medicine

Advanced imaging through nuclear medicine

Nuclear medicine, a medical specialty that uses radioactive isotopes to diagnose and treat cancer and other diseases, is a vital component of imaging services at Doctors Medical Center of Modesto. We offer:

  • Specialized nuclear medicine scans including MIGB to diagnose and treat neuroendocrine tumors and Prostascint scans to pinpoint and stage tumors of the prostate
  • Radioimmune therapy using two FDA-approved isotopes to isolate and treat tumors in patients with non-Hodgkins lymphoma
  • A full-body I-131 scan using radioactive isotopes to detect and treat cancerous thyroid glands after a physical exam has indicated their possible presence
  • A full-body bone scan as a follow-up to treatment for lung, breast or prostate cancer to detect whether the cancer has spread
  • Non-cancer scans such as SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography) to diagnose diseases including Alzheimer’s disease and coronary artery disease 
Our focus is on you — from imaging services in diagnosis and treatment to recovery.  Make Doctors Medical Center caregivers part of your healing team.
