What is the definition or description of: Bone scintigraphy?

Bone scan

Bone_scan
Bone scintigraphy ( or radionuclide bone scan) is the study of bone metabolism obtained after intravenous injection of a weakly radioactive material ( usually 99mTc-MDP) which concentrates into the bones. The scan is usually obtained 3-4 hours after the injection of the radiotracer. According to the symptoms, the scan can be localized to one site or it can be a whole-body scan, from head to toes.

Dr. Bennett Werner answered:

Is routine Dipyridamole thallium scintigraphy still used by doctors?

Yes

Doctors
In some hospitals it is. But Lexiscan (regadenson) has largely replaced dipyridamole in most labs. Thallium is also still used sometimes, especially to evaluate hibernatining myocardium, but newer radionuclides have largely replaced it for routine testing.
