Bone SPECT

Total Time Required:
Scan: 45 minutes

What is a bone SPECT?
An examination to better study the spaces between the bones.

Why do I need a bone SPECT?
These pictures are reconstructed and processed on a computer so that the technologist can see inside the bones (similar to CT scans). The nuclear medicine doctor sometimes needs this test to see the exact location of the abnormality in the bone.

How do I prepare for my bone SPECT?
The bone spect will be done after the bone scan is completed.

What can I expect during the test?
You will be asked to lie on your stomach or back (whichever is more comfortable). The camera will slowly circle your body and take pictures. These pictures will be processed on the computer. The pictures will take about 25 minutes.

What do I do after my bone SPECT?
The nuclear medicine doctor will read the scan and send the results to your referring doctor, who will give you the results.
