Injection of the radiotracer may cause slight pain and redness which should rapidly resolve.
To locate a medical imaging or radiation oncology provider in your community, you can search the ACR-accredited facilities database. In contrast, nuclear medicine procedures use a radioactive material, called a radiopharmaceutical or radiotracer, which is injected into the bloodstream, swallowed or inhaled as a rneal.

What are the limitations of renal scintigraphy? You will be asked to lie on your back or sit up, and will need to remain as still as possible while the gammgarafia takes each picture. After the injection, you could experience a brief metallic taste. Depending upon the type of procedure, renal imaging can last gammarafia 30 minutes to 2 hours.
The gamma camera itself does not emit any radiation. While the camera is taking pictures, you will need to remain still for brief periods of time.
Renal cortical scintigraphy detects the amount of functioning renal cortical tissue through images taken with a gamma camera approximately two hours after radiopharmaceutical injection. You may be asked to sit or lie down for the exam. What are the limitations of renal imaging? When it is time for the imaging to begin, the gamma camera will take a series of images. The camera works with a computer to produce special pictures offering details on both the structure and function of organs and tissues.
This radioactive material accumulates in the organ or area of your body being examined, where it gives off a small amount of energy in the form of gamma rays. Areas of greater intensity, called “hot spots,” indicate where large amounts of the radiotracer have accumulated and where there is a high level of chemical or renl activity. What does the equipment look like? Because the radiotracer interacts differently in different kinds of gammzgrafia, it can help physicians determine if something is wrong with the kidneys or if the kidneys are functioning normally.
This energy is detected by a device called a gamma camera. Four types of renal imaging help determine whether the kidneys are working normally or abnormally. You will be positioned on an examination table. Benefits The information provided by nuclear renal imaging is unique and often unattainable using other imaging procedures.
Renal imaging yields useful information needed to make a diagnosis or to determine appropriate treatment, if any.
Nuclear medicine imaging is usually performed on an outpatient basis, but is often performed on hospitalized patients as well. SPECT involves the rotation of the gamma camera heads around the patient’s body to produce more detailed, three-dimensional images.
This website does not provide cost gammagrsfia. Web page review process: Who interprets the results and how do I get them? What is renal scintigraphy? A radiologist or other physician who has specialized training in nuclear medicine will interpret the images and send a report to your referring physician.
Jewelry and other metallic accessories should be left at home if possible, or removed prior to the exam gammqgrafia they may interfere with the procedure.

Unless your physician tells you otherwise, you may resume your normal activities after your nuclear medicine scan. The risks of the treatment are always weighed against the potential benefits for nuclear medicine therapeutic procedures.
You will be informed of all significant risks prior to the treatment and have an opportunity to ask questions. What will I experience during and after the procedure? Renal perfusion and functional imaging examines blood flow to the kidneys gamjagrafia identifies potential narrowing of the renal arteries.
You should also inform them if you have any allergies and about recent illnesses or other reenal conditions. Diuretic renal scintigraphy, ACE-inhibitor renal scintigraphy, renal perfusion and function imaging will typically begin imaging while the tracer is being administered.
Nuclear medicine diagnostic procedures have been used for more than five decades, and there are no known long-term adverse effects from such low-dose exposure.
