Patient Care

The Division of Nuclear Medicine provides the highest quality diagnostic and therapeutic patient care, while serving as a large referral center for patients in the Rocky Mountain region. Our state-of-the-art equipment includes two PET/CT cameras, two SPECT/CT cameras and 4 SPECT cameras. Our therapeutic practice includes the use of unsealed sources of radiation to treat various thyroid disorders and other malignancies. We have one of the largest therapeutic practices in the country and offer personalized services such as dosimetry.   

Education

The Division of Nuclear Medicine participates in the full range of educational activities for fellows, residents, medical students, and other members of the medical community. The division sponsors one fellow per year through our ACGME accredited nuclear radiology fellowship program. Past fellows have pursued successful careers in academics and private practice.


Research

Faculty members in the Division of Nuclear Medicine conduct research in a wide range of areas and are also active in several clinical trials.  Many projects involve our radiopharmaceutical program and on site medical cyclotron facility. Faculty members also actively support the Colorado Translational Research Imaging Center (CTRIC) and work collaboratively with researchers on campus and throughout the state.
