Isotope Laboratory

At the laboratory, radionuclide tests are carried out with the help of Philips gamma camera.

Scintigraphy is a diagnostic test in nuclear medicine, where accumulation and distribution of radiopharmaceuticals in tissues and organs of the body are recorded with the help of a detector of a gamma camera.

Chief:

Elena K. Kepet,

1st qualification category physician.

Types of scintigraphy:

  • renal scintigraphy
  • bone scintigraphy
  • thyroid scintigraphy, etc.

Process:;

A patient receives an intravenous injection of a radiopharmaceutical. The choice of a pharmaceutical depends on what organ or system is to be tested. A radiopharmaceutical is a combination of a pharmaceutical drug and an isotope (technetium 99m)

Technetium 99m is a gamma emitter with a half-life of 6 hours. During scintigraphy patients are exposed to lower radiation doses than during X-ray examinations. Immediately after or within 1-2 hours after injection of the radiopharmaceutical the patient is scanned by a gamma camera. The system records the radiation emitted by the patient. After scintigraphy, an increased fluid intake is recommended.

Contraindications: pregnancy.

A referral for your physician is required.
