Scintigraphy (from Latin scintilla, "sparkle"), otherwise called a gamma check, is a symptomatic test in atomic medication, where radioisotopes joined to drugs that movement to a particular organ or tissue (radiopharmaceuticals) are taken inside and the discharged gamma radiation is caught by outside locators (gamma cameras) to frame two-dimensional pictures in a comparable procedure to the catch of x-beam pictures. Conversely, SPECT and positron emanation tomography (PET) structure 3-dimensional pictures, and are in this manner delegated separate methods to scintigraphy, despite the fact that they additionally use gamma cameras to distinguish inside radiation. Scintigraphy is not normal for a symptomatic X-beam where outer radiation is gone through the body to shape a picture.
