Caption

Gamma camera scans of a person suffering from multiple metastastic (secondary) bone cancer. The gamma camera is a diagnostic device used widely in the detection & management of cancer - often as a means of checking for secondary disease after a patient has received treatment for their primary cancer. This colour-coded image represents the position & intensity of radiation emitted from a short-lived radioactive tracer that concentrates in bone - more strongly in cancerous bone (red areas). Increased activity is also seen in the kidneys and bladder as the isotope is excreted from the system.
