Applications of Radioisotope Scan

Determination of blood flow to the brain

  • Evaluation of the function of specific organs such as the liver, lungs, heart or kidneys
  • Assessment of bone growth
  • Predict the outcome of surgery and to assess the changes or response to treatment

Isotope Scan by itself does not provide a very good anatomic description of the organ evaluated. However, it forms a valuable tool when combined with other tests to confirm the diagnosis
