A bone scan helps us to identify abnormalities of the bones such as breaks or some bone cancers. We will give you an injection containing a small amount of radioactivity which acts like a tracer. After some time the tracer collects in the bones and then we are able to take pictures of the bones on a scanner called a gamma camera.

excellent and could you extend my thanks to them all. A very
thankful and relieved patient'.
