Earn a nuclear medicine technology (NMT) degree 

A high-tech health care career
Nuclear medicine is coming of age as the forerunner of molecular imaging. Nuclear medicine uses small radioactive “tracers” to create images of internal body structures and metabolic processes. These metabolic imaging techniques, such as positron emission tomogrpahy (PET), performed in conjunction with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), are producing images that can visualize cellular and molecular function.
