A 21-year-old member asked:

What are radioisotopes, pet and spect?

Dr. Edward Neilsen
Family Medicine 19 years experience
Visibility: Radioisotopes make molecules that are not typically visible on x-rays to show up. In the example of pet, a common molecule used is a radioisotope of glucose (sugar). Tissues that are growing rapidly would accumulate the sugar more readily, and the positrons emitted from them would show up on an x-ray. Spect is similar, but takes more images from different angles to make 3d images.

Depends : The best answer comes with who you expect to do the day to day care for the pet.There are downsides to any animal around infants & toddlers & i recently counselled a parent whose 4yo shook a biting chiuahua into a wall & killed it accidently.If you plan to care for it, find a kid friendly pet & go for it.There are few kids under 8 that possess the maturity & dependability to handle daily pet needs.
