Hope that what was interesting to you will be as interesting to the Docs.
Edited after reading the "Bone Scan" Thread:
From the Research Dept:
The dye is injected and collects in your bones. More of it tends to collect in areas where there is a lot of activity in the bone. 'Activity' means the bone is breaking down, or repairing itself. These areas of activity are picked out by the camera. They are commonly called 'hot spots'.
Bone can break down and repair for other reasons. If you have arthritis, for example, this will also show up on the scan.
<quote>The doctor will ask you to pass urine just before you return (or when you return) to get rid of any radionuclide in your bladder. </quote>
<Interesting quote> patients that they should not have close contact with pregnant women, babies and young children until the day after their scan.
Results in a "couple of weeks."
On the lighter side, you need to take a writable CD with you so that they can put the pictures on disk for you.
With the techno now-a-days, they should be able to make a full size 3D model, wouldn't that be cool Mods, please edit as you see fit, if at all
