Full Body Scintigraphy


With the leukocyte scintigraphy, leukocytes are removed from the patient, labelled with a radionuclide and then injected back into the patient. The leukocytes accumulate where there is acute inflammation thereby indicating areas of acute and sub-acute infection. This method is particularly helpful in providing information for development of the differential diagnosis of loose or infected artificial joints.
