OMC - DAT Scan Center of Excellence

- The Department of Nuclear Medicine at Ocean Medical Center is proud to announce our status as a GE DAT SCAN CENTER of EXCELLENCE. Ocean's staff was trained in performing and processing these highly specific scans. DAT Scan is a brain imaging agent that specifically enables neurologists to better diagnose Parkinsonian syndromes from Essential Tremors. This enables a more accurate diagnosis in conjunction with other imaging modalities such as MRI and CT scan. Ocean is the only Meridian Health hospital that is certified to perform DAT Scans. To schedule an appointment, please call the Department of Nuclear Medicine at 732-840-3387.
