Nuclear Med offers a wide variety of studies. The majority of studies require the patient to be injected with a radioactive isotope.
Depending on the study there might be a waiting time before the scan (allowing the isotope enough time to gather in the particular study site). The patient will then be scanned at least once, depending on the study. Please note: a number of the appointment will require patients to return to Nuclear Med repeatedly for up to two days. Please familiarise yourself with the requirements as the radioactive isotopes have sepcific window periods in which they can be scanned
