Nuclear Medicine Services
Comprehensive nuclear medicine services - which utilize radioactive substances to image functions of the body - are available throughout the Norton Healthcare network. These services can help in both the diagnosis and treatment of certain diseases and ailments.
Nuclear therapies are used in the treatment of thyroid problems, bone cancer pain and Non-Hodgkins lymphoma. In fact, Norton Audubon Hospital is the first site in the state to use the Bexxar and Zevalin therapies to treat this disease.
