This imaging technique allows the localization of certain areas of inflammation and infection :
A VM-Med technologist first obtains a sample of the patient’s blood, from which white blood cells are extracted. Then, a slightly radioactive isotope is mixed with the patient’s white blood cells and re-injected intravenously. Within a few hours, scintiphotos are produced, which are used to determine if there is an excessive concentration of white blood cells in the evaluated area, indicating the presence of infection or inflammation.
