Abstract

Pediatric nuclear medicine encompasses diagnostic, investigational, and therapeutic applications of nuclear medicine technology to pediatric patients. Diagnostic nuclear medicine procedures are well suited for the evaluation of pediatric patients as they are safe, minimally invasive and sensitive. They provide qualitative and quantitative information about function of organs and systems in the body.
