Caption: Gamma camera scan of a person with metastatic cancer (secondary disease, spread from a primary growth) present in the cervical spine, arm and lower chest cavity and indicated on the image by dark spots. The scan is performed by initially injecting a radioisotope, Iodine 131, into the patient; this is taken up by cancerous cells to a greater degree than by normal ones, and a subsequent scan of the patient's body reveals areas where such increased uptake has ocurred, and indicates areas of secondary disease.
