FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Find right answers to all your queries
Is Nuclear Medicine dangerous?
Not at all. A high amount of radiation is known to be dangerous for people, but the amount of radiation received during a nuclear medicine test is similar to that received while getting a chest CT Scan.
What are the side effects of nuclear medicine?
There are no extreme or adverse side effects of nuclear medicines. Minor side effects like bleeding, soreness, or swelling of the injection site and allergic reactions to the radiopharmaceuticals may occur, but they are extremely rare in occurrence.
Can you drive after a nuclear scan?
Yes, you can drive right after the nuclear scan and get back to work. However, if your work involves photographic film and/or radioactive substances, then it will be better to consult a doctor to before you return to work.
