Nuclear medicine encompasses a spectrum of imaging services across multiple organ systems — from the heart and lungs to the kidneys, liver, spleen, colon, and skeletal structure. At Norman Regional, we value your health and are committed to providing high-quality, compassionate care for every patient.

Understanding Nuclear Medicine Procedures

Most nuclear medicine exams at our Norman hospitals are diagnostic and non-invasive, posing negligible risk to patients. These procedures involve administering small doses of radioactive tracers, which emit gamma rays detected by our sophisticated Gamma Camera systems, thereby ensuring minimal patient exposure (equivalent to that of standard X-ray exams). Committed to the highest safety standards, the radioisotopes we use have been carefully chosen to minimize allergic reactions and provide clear imaging results.

Our team of expert radiologists and cardiologists will review your images and interpret your results. Reports are typically sent to your referring physician within 24 to 48 hours after the exam, ensuring timely delivery of critical health information. Patients can also request copies to be sent to their primary care providers or other specialists as needed.

Consult with a Medical Professional Regarding Recommended Options

Nuclear medicine modalities are primarily geared towards investigating the functioning features of various organs or organ systems. In addition to diagnostics, we also offer therapeutic nuclear medicine services, which utilize higher doses of radiation to target and improve cellular conditions within the body. Our dedicated staff is here to guide you through all your options surrounding radiological imaging services in Norman.
