Is it safe?

The procedures used in Nuclear Medicine are extremely safe with no adverse long-term effects observed thus far. The amount of radiation used with each procedure is minimal, short-lived and typically expelled from the body within days by natural processes. Only very small amounts of radiopharmaceuticals are given to patients during the procedures performed in Nuclear Medicine; just enough to provide the necessary diagnostic information.

Please send across a copy of your referral as this is needed to book in an appointment for you.  This will provide us with the information we need and help avoid any delays.
