Right now I'm radioactive. I was injected with a radioactive substance at 8am and now I'm just waiting for the substance to collect within my skeletal system.
Infection in the bone (osteomyelitis) can be detected or confirmed by a bone scan, often days or weeks before an x ray would reveal it. Bone scans are useful in diagnosing early arthritic changes, and monitoring both the progression of the disease and the effectiveness of treatment. Unexplained pain may be evaluated with a bone scan, because it can demonstrate fractures that are difficult to detect on x ray. Abnormalities caused by altered circulation to the bone may be diagnosed with a bone scan.
I feel different with this radioactive fluid ripping through my body. Just don't make me angry... you wouldn't like me when I'm angry...
