How does nuclear medicine cure diseases? Can anyone give an example of how nuclear medicine is used to cure diseases? I don't understand how it works.

Nuclear medicine harnesses this principal to destroy thyroid tissue by giving the patient a radioactive form of iodine (i-131). This radioactive iodine is concentrated in the thyroid gland. The isotope primarily releases beta radiation which destroys the surrounding tissue (most of which is thyroid tissue). If there is thyroid cancer in the area, the cancer is also destroyed. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
