This composite of frontal and posterior views of the entire skeleton, from a nuclear medicine bone scan, demonstrate the presence of metastatic lesions to the right (on your left) shoulder and occipital bone of the skull. Nuclear medicine bone scans use isotopes which can depict bone metabolism and therefore can detect the presence of high metabolic metastatic lesions. The long tubular region of activity represents the radio-isotope being excreted in the urine through a catheter in the bladder, which drains into a collecting bag.
