Stephens County Memorial unveils new Nuclear Medicine Lab

The Stephens County Memorial Hospital unveiled their new Nuclear Medicine Lab Thursday afternoon with a couple representatives on hand to explain the benefits of the technology.

Nuclear Medicine Specialist Ambar Paranjape and Regional Vice President James Avery for Heart Care answered questions for those stopping by to see the new facility. Paranjape said the differences between this and other tests, such as an x-ray, are stark.

“When you look at an x-ray or CT scan, what you’re seeing is anatomy and morphology,” Paranjape said. “When you look at a nuclear image, you’re seeing function. So, you’re not really seeing anatomy, you’re seeing how the anatomy is working.”
