West Palm Beach Bone Scanning - Medical Diagnostic Scans

A West Palm Beach Bone Scan is one of our many services that we provide patients with here at Medical Diagnostic Scans. This type of procedure is also called a bone scintigraphy, and it involves taking a nuclear medicine image of the bone. A Bone Scan also helps to locate bone conditions, which also involve bone cancer and infection. In addition, this type of scan can also find inflammation in the bone and fractures that are not visible with X-ray images. When performing a bone scan we have to inject our patients with 740 MBq of technetium-99m-MDP. We then scan the patient using a gamma camera, which take an image of the planar anterior and posterior. Our medical staff is board certified and led by board certified Dr. Pevsner, and we are always ready to serve you with the highest standards of service.

West Palm Beach, your Bone Scan can be used to detect cancers that are spreading to the bone from the lungs, prostate, breasts, thyroid, or bladder. The Bone Scan is the perfect procedure to have done if the patient knows about their cancer. It is a routine check up done every year to see if the cancer is spreading to the bones. Our goal is to make certain that all our patients receive the highest quality of healthcare available so they can be on the road to recovery. We will speak with your physician about the results as well as give them our recommendation. Contact Medical Diagnostic Scans today with your referral for a bone scan.
