Nuclear Medicine 3 Phase Bone Scan

A nuclear medicine triple phase bone scan is used to diagnose a fracture, hardware loosening and infection when it cannot be seen with an x-ray. This scan includes a series of images taken at different times using a GE Entegra Nuclear Medicine gamma camera. The patient is injected with 25 mci of Tc99 MDP nuclear medicine agent while the doctor immediately scans the affected body part which takes about 15 minutes. 3-4 hours later the patient returns for delayed imaging of the same body part which takes about 45 minutes.

What to expect during the procedure:

Patient’s will be asked to lie still on a table while a device with a tracer-sensitive camera passes over their body to obtain images
