Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine is a specialized service within the Department of Imaging at Johns Hopkins Bayview that utilizes radioactive material to access the function of organs or systems within the body. Unlike conventional X-ray, CT, MRI and ultrasound that are used to produce images of the inside of the body, nuclear medicine is used to determine the function of organs or tissues in a safe, effective way. It helps diagnose and treat many diseases, such as cancer, heart disease and infection.

Clinical imaging professionals at Johns Hopkins Bayview use a SPECT/CT scanner, which combines functional imaging of single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) with the anatomic imaging of computed tomography (CT). In addition to allowing anatomic localization of nuclear imaging findings, SPECT/CT also enables accurate and rapid attenuation correction of SPECT studies. These attributes have proven to be useful in many cardiac, general nuclear medicine, oncologic and neurologic applications, in which SPECT results alone were inconclusive.

American College of Radiology Gold Seal of Accreditation for Nuclear MedicineJohns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center has been granted the American College of Radiology (ACR) gold seal. The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.
