Caption: Bone metastases. Coloured gamma camera scan (scintigram) of the spine and ribs of a female patient, showing secondary cancer (metastases). At centre is the spine, with the ribcage coloured a deep blue. Cancer metastases (green) are seen on the ribs. This bone cancer arose from a primary cancer of the breasts. A gamma camera scan is a record of radioactive emissions from an isotope (Technetium-99m in this case) that is selectively absorbed by bone, or other target tissues, when injected into the body. Gamma ray scanning is frequently used to screen cancer patients for signs of secondary disease, often after their primary cancer has been treated.
