Nuclear Bone scan

A bone scan is an imaging test that detects areas of increased or decreased bone metabolism. Bone Scans assist in identifying tumors, infection, or fractures. The radiopharmaceutical most commonly used is 99mTc-Medronate (MDP). MDP is injected into a vein, usually in the arm, where it is transported by the bloodstream to the bones.
