White Blood Cell Scan

By |2020-01-13T10:37:20+03:00May 23rd, 2014|Immune system, Nuclear Medicine|

This Nuclear Medicine scan is a means of detecting infection in bone, joints and soft tissue as well inflammation due to other causes, such as inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease). English: White Blood Cell Scan Instructions Arabic: White Blood Cell Scan Instructions

Lymphoscintigraphy

By |2020-01-19T14:34:40+03:00May 23rd, 2014|Lymphoscintigraphy, Nuclear Medicine|

This Nuclear Medicine scan is the optimal way to image the lymphatic system of the body. The lymphatics are a complex network of small vessels, similar in many ways to blood vessels, only instead of being transporting conduits for blood they transport a clear fluid called lymph. Lymph nodes are found at various [...]

Breath Test for H. pylori: PYtest® C-14 Urea Breath Test (UBT)

Indications Detection of gastric urease as an aid in the diagnosis of H. pylori infection in the human stomach and/or duodenum. Evaluation for H. pylori due to abnormal results on related studies. Contraindications The following may give false-negative results. Antibiotics within the last 30 days. Bismuth: Pepto-Bismol® within the last 30 days. Sucralfate within the [...]

I131/I123 Metaiodobenzylguanidine (mIBG) Scintigraphy

By |2018-05-16T11:07:01+03:00May 16th, 2014|Endocrine system, Nuclear Medicine|

I131/I123 Metaiodobenzylguanidine (mIBG) Scintigraphy help locate and diagnose certain types of tumors in the body. MIBG is a substance that gathers in some tumors, particularly neuroblastoma tumors. When MIBG is combined with radioactive iodine (tracer), it provides a way to identify primary and metastatic (spread) disease. MIBG scans are helpful for locating [...]

Octreotide Scintigraphy

By |2018-05-16T13:22:38+03:00May 16th, 2014|Endocrine system, Nuclear Medicine|

An octreotide scan or octreoscan is a type of scintigraphy used to find carcinoid and other types of tumors and to localize sarcoidosis. Tc-HYNIC-TOC (Tektrotyd) is injected into a vein and travels through the bloodstream. The radioactive octreotide attaches to tumor cells that have receptors for somatostatin. English: Octreotide Scintigraphy [...]

Dual Phase Parathyroid Scan

By |2018-03-15T11:18:14+03:00May 16th, 2014|Endocrine system, Nuclear Medicine|

Dual Phase Parathyroid Scan is a procedure in nuclear medicine which is performed to localize parathyroid adenoma. Adequate localization of parathyroid adenoma allows the surgeon to use a minimally invasive surgical approach. English: Dual Phase Parathyroid Scan Instructions Arabic: Dual Phase Parathyroid Scan Instructions [...]

Myocardial Viability Scan

By |2020-01-19T13:12:35+03:00May 12th, 2014|Cardiovascular system, Nuclear Medicine|

Myocardial viability scan is a non-invasive Nuclear Medicine test used to determine the extent of viable heart muscle tissue. The scan is mostly used for patients who have had previous heart attacks, and where a decision needs to be made as to whether heart surgery will provide significant benefit or not. [...]

Rest Multi-Gated Blood Pool Ventriculography

By |2019-11-26T11:24:36+03:00May 12th, 2014|Cardiovascular system, Nuclear Medicine|

This Nuclear Medicine scan is a means of assessing the heart's pumping ability. It allows an accurate means of measuring how efficiently the ventricles of the heart are contracting. The scan also may indicate the presence of underlying diseases such as cardiomyopathy or coronary artery disease. This scan is also used to assess [...]

Cisternogram

By |2018-05-17T10:23:02+03:00May 12th, 2014|Cerebrospinal Fluid, Nuclear Medicine|

Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Ventricular Shunt Patency Study also known as (cisternogram) evaluates the flow patterns of the cerebrospinal fluid and aids in the diagnosis of hydrocephalus as well as other flow patterns of the cerebrospinal fluid.source: beaumont.edu English: Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Flow Study Instructions English: Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Leak Detection Study [...]

Liver/Spleen/Marrow Colloid Scan

By |2018-05-17T10:59:24+03:00May 12th, 2014|Reticuloendothelial System|

Liver/Spleen/Marrow Colloid Scan is usually done to supplement a bone scan and/or a Gallium or labelled white blood cell scan when looking for infection in bones and joints.source: newcastlenuclearmedicine.com.au Arabic: Liver/Spleen/Marrow Colloid Scan Instructions
