Gallium whole body scan is a type of nuclear medicine scan. It is performed looking for infection, inflammation, and tumours in the body. To conduct a scan, a radioactive metal “Gallium”, is mixed into a solution and injected into your arm.

The solution moves through the blood and collects in organs and bones. The body will be scanned after giving an injection to see where and how the gallium accumulated in your body.

Why is it done?

The Gallium whole body scan is recommended by a doctor:

  • If you are suffering from undiscovered pains or fever
  • To diagnose cancer.
