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.
The Gallium whole body scan is recommended by a doctor
• The technologist will instruct you to lie down on the table.
• The technologist will inject a gallium solution into a vein in your arm.
• Gallium solution takes a few hours in moving through your bloodstream and collecting in your bones and organs.
• A scanner will slowly move around your body and a special camera detects the collection of gallium in your body.
>>No special preparation is required. The doctor will give you special instructions if needed.
It will take a few days to decrease the radioactive material in your body. The doctor may suggest you drink a lot of fluid to get rid of radioactive material from the body faster. Generally, the injection doesn’t cause an allergic reaction such as skin rashes or nausea but, in some cases, it may happen.
