    Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty involving the application of radioactive substances in the diagnosis and treatment of r medicine imaging, in a sense, is "radiology done inside out" or "endoradiology" because it records radiation emitting from within the body rather than radiation that is generated by external sources like addition, nuclear medicine scans differ ICDPCS: C.

Radioactive isotopes in clinical practice by Edith Hinkley Quimby (Author) See all formats and editions Hide other formats and editionsAuthor: Edith Hinkley Quimby.

This book is an introduction to the relatively new field of nuclear medicine. During the past five years the authors have conducted a comprehensive course in the clinical uses of radioactive isotopes. It is from the experience gained in the presentation of this course that this book has been written.

A radioactive isotope, also known as a radioisotope, radionuclide, or radioactive nuclide, is any of several species of the same chemical element with different masses whose nuclei are unstable and dissipate excess energy by spontaneously emitting radiation in the form of alpha, beta, and gamma rays.

RADIOACTIVE ISOTOPES IN CLINICAL DIAGNOSIS there would be little hope of completely ablating such a lesion by radioiodine, although a partial effect might be obtained.

If an isotope undergoes radioactive decay very, very slowly, it may be termed stable. An example is bismuth Bismuth is a stable radioactive isotope that undergoes alpha-decay but has a half-life of x 10 19 years (which is more than a billion times longer than the estimated age of the universe).Missing: clinical practice.

Radioactive isotopes have the same chemical properties as stable isotopes of the same element, but they emit radiation, which can be detected.

Exposure to radiation generally is considered harmful to the human body, but radioisotopes are highly valuable in medicine, particularly in the diagnosis and treatment of g: clinical practice. Radiopharmacology is radiochemistry applied to medicine and thus the pharmacology of radiopharmaceuticals (medicinal radiocompounds, that is, pharmaceutical drugs that are radioactive).Radiopharmaceuticals are used in the field of nuclear medicine as radioactive tracers in medical imaging and in therapy for many diseases (for example, brachytherapy).Many Other names: Medicinal radiochemistry.

Radioactive Drug for Tests Is in Short Supply. an assistant professor of clinical medicine at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, said the isotope was used to .The half-life of radioactive isotopes is unaffected by any environmental factors, so the isotope acts like an internal clock.
