Billary Scan
You have been scheduled for a Biliary study which involves the use of a small amount of radioactive material. The level of radioactivity used is extremely low and has no side effects.

You will be positioned next to a special detector called a gamma camera. The camera does not produce any radiation. It will be placed close to the part of your body being imaged.

Patient Preparation
No food or drink 6 - 8 hours before the exam.

A small amount of radioactive material will be injected into a vein in your arm. Painless images will be obtained for approximately 1 to 2 hours. Delayed images may be needed 3 to 4 hours later.
