Nuclear Medicine

Diagnostic Medical Imaging Nuclear Medicine (DMIN) is the scientific and clinical discipline involving the diagnostic and therapeutic use of radionuclides. Simply put, nuclear medicine specialists help treat disease and image the body.

In the Diagnostic Medical Imaging Nuclear Medicine (DMIN) program, students learn the skills necessary to produce high-quality diagnostic images of patients. Nuclear medicine students are instructed to deliver compassionate patient care; abstract data from patient records; prepare, calculate and administer radiopharmaceuticals; operate scanning equipment; perform computer acquisitions; analyze patient studies; and assist the physician when necessary.

The curriculum for this 15-month program includes clinical nuclear medicine, nuclear medicine procedures, nuclear physics, radiation detection with imaging and non-imaging instrumentation, radiation safety, radiation biology, radioactive material regulations, radiopharmacy, positron emission tomography, computer applications and patient care.

The student also spends three days a week at the clinical affiliate and two days a week at the college.
