Assignment 2: Nuclear Medicine
Nuclear medicine is a specialized branch of modern medicine that exploits the process of radioactivity for imaging diagnosis and treatment. Many imaging techniques inject small amounts of radioactive material into the body which are then tracked by a sensing device specific to the type of radiation emitted from that material. Radiation has also been used to destroy diseased tissue typically beyond the reach of standard surgical techniques.
