Nuclear Medicine Liver and Spleen

A liver spleen exam is done to detect problems in the liver and spleen using a GE Entegra Nuclear Medicine gamma camera. The patient is injected with 25 mci sulfur colloid nuclear agent and scanning begins 10 minutes later and lasts for about 45 minutes. This nuclear agent collects in the liver and spleen and the obtained images will show how your liver and spleen are working.

 

What to expect during the procedure:

  • Patient’s will be asked to lie still on a table while a gamma camera positioned over the abdomen obtains the necessary images
