SPECT Bone Scan

A bone scan is a nuclear imaging test that helps diagnose and many types of bone and joint disease based on the pattern seen on the scan. 

There are multiple parts to a nuclear medicine bone scan done at different times depending on the clinical question and as required by the radiologist. You will receive an injection into a vein in your arm that usually takes 10 minutes, then you will then return for delayed images after approximately 3 hours. 

No prep is needed for this exam. Feel free to call us if you have any questions.
