What is Nuclear Medicine?
Nuclear Medicine is the use of safe techniques to image the body and treat diseases. The imaging technique is unique, because it provides the physician with information about both structure and function.
Nuclear Medicine Staff
The Nuclear Medicine Services staffs have been extensively trained in this field.
Interpretation of exams are done by a Nuclear Medicine physician/Radiologist on call, and reported.
All technologists were extensively trained and hold certifications in one of two following organizations:
- Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB)
- The American Registry of Radiological Technologist (ARRT)
How to Schedule an appointment
To schedule as appointment for a Nuclear Medicine study at Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center:
- The ordering physician can electronically enter a consultation into Composite Health Care Systems (CHCS) or an order with patients name, requested exam, brief history and ordering physicians signature may be hand carried to Nuclear Medicine or faxed to 254-286-7001.
- Patients are requested to come to the Nuclear Medicine Services at Darnall Army Medical Center 1st floor to arrange appointments (Some patients with disability or patients who are dependent on transportation may call the clinic at 254-288-8290 to make an appointment). There are exam specific instructions to be given and a questionnaire may need to be filled out prior to the exam and we strongly encourage the patients to come in person to make an appointment.
