Human skeleton. Coloured scintigram showing the front (left) and back (right) of a human skeleton. The bones of the skeleton provide a structural framework for the body and protect the internal organs. To produce a scintigram a radioactive tracer that accumulates in the bones is given to the subject. A gamma camera is then used to detect the gamma rays emitted by the tracer.
