Nuclear medicine is a medical imaging modality that provides physiologic information to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Nuclear medicine and molecular imaging techniques play an important role in the management of a wide variety of health conditions, including cancer, heart disease, and neurological disorders.

Upon successful completion of the program, students are eligible to sit for the national certification board exams in nuclear medicine offered by the Nuclear Medicine Certification Boards (NMTCB) and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
