Imagine experiencing pain day after day and not knowing why. It happened to one Fremont woman. Stacey Lichtenberg was 36-years-old when she had stubborn abdominal pain. Her doctor gave her test after test, but still couldn't find the problem. Stacey even began to doubt if her discomfort was real.
Thanks to a unique test, using Nuclear Medicine, patients like Stacey don't have to wonder what's wrong anymore.
In this month's Health Check, Serese Cole takes us to the Fremont Area Medical Center where radiologist Carter Cook explains what a Nuclear Medicine Scan is, how it works and how radioactive material is used in the process.
See how the Nuclear Medicine Scan helped Stacey and what it means for the thousands of other patients like her . It's Monday night at 5 on the Channel Six News.
