Risks

The patient is exposed to a small amount of radiation similar to that of a regular X-ray. Precautions are taken to minimize the amount of radiation necessary for the procedure.

There is a very small risk of allergic reaction to the radioactive substances. If you have any concerns about the safety of the procedure, please talk to your doctor or one of the members of the nuclear medicine team.
