After the Exam
After the examination, a radiologist will review your nuclear medicine scans. Your personal physician will receive a report of the scans, review the results with you, and discuss what further procedures, if any, are needed.
The radiation that you are exposed to during a nuclear medicine procedure is equal to or less than a standard X-ray or CT scan covering the same body area. In general, the radiopharmaceutical administered during the examination will be eliminated naturally from your body in one or two days. Drinking ﬂuid will help clear the radiopharmaceuticals from your system more quickly.
