Nuclear medicine is a  medical specialty  involving the application of radioactive substances in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.  Nuclear 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 X-rays . In addition, nuclear medicine scans differ from radiology as the emphasis is not on imaging anatomy but the function and for such reason, it is called a  physiological imaging modality. single photon emission computed tomography. (SPECT) and position emission tomography (PET) scans are the two most common imaging modalities in nuclear medicine.
