Gamma Camera Labeled R.B.C. Scan for Hemangioma
You have been scheduled for a Liver Hemangioma and SPECT 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 (see photo). The camera does not produce any radiation. It will be placed close to the part of your body being imaged.

Patient Preparation

An I.V. will be placed in your arm. Through this IV, your blood will be drawn, tagged with a small amount of radioactive material, and then re-injected back into you. Painless images will be obtained for one to two hours. Delayed images may be needed.
