Clinical Programs and Services

Nuclear Medicine involves the medical uses of radiopharmaceuticals (drugs that have been tagged with radioactivity) to either see how organs or tissues are working (for diagnosis) or to target and destroy damaged or diseased organs or tissue (for therapy). Within the Division of Nuclear Medicine, part of the University of Michigan’s Radiology Department, our patients benefit from cutting-edge equipment and highly trained personnel for both diagnostic and therapeutic services. Our diagnostic clinic is led by Dr. Benjamin Viglianti, and our theranostics clinic and pediatric nuclear medicine teams are led by Dr. KaKit Wong. While our clinical program is broadly based, major emphases of our diagnostic and theranostic clinics are on:

  • Cancer Diagnosis
  • Cancer Therapeutics
  • Disorders of the central nervous system
  • Heart disease
