    Tech Tuesday: Nuclear Physicists Take Aim at Breast Cancer

    Let’s delve a little deeper into a topic I have mentioned before in a blog post - nuclear medicine. Nuclear medicine can be simply described as that area of healthcare that uses nuclear physics principles to detect and/or treat disease. Cancer is one disease where the power of nuclear medicine has been brought to bear in multiple ways. While nuclear physics has been used to diagnose and treat many types of cancer, since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I decided to focus this post on breast cancer.
