A nuclear medicine scan is a safe and painless procedure that uses a radioactive tracer to highlight the parts of the body that need to be examined in more detail. This can provide information and identify abnormalities within the very early stages of disease that often cannot be obtained by other forms of imaging or scans.

You will need to have been referred for an Nuclear medical scan by a qualified healthcare professional, such as your GP, consultant, an osteopath or a physiotherapist. If you think you need an Nuclear medical scan but don’t have a referral yet, our team are happy to assist you by offering you an appointment with a Private GP or Physical Therapist, who will be able to determine whether or not you need a scan and recommend an appropriate treatment plan for you.

Comprehensive diagnosis that delivers fast results

A radioactive tracer is a substance with a small amount of radioactivity that is usually injected into the bloodstream within your arm but can also be inhaled or swallowed. A special type of camera, called a Gamma Camera, is used to detect the radiation being emitted from the area under examination.

Common procedures performed include analysing kidney function and drainage, evaluating bones for fractures and bone disease, imaging blood flow and function of the heart and lungs, brain scanning for Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s and locating the presence of infection by white cell scanning. It is also used to highlight internal structures of the body prior to surgery.
