Patient Information Leaflets
The British Nuclear Medicine Society has produced some patient information leaflets that give information about some common nuclear medicine procedures. You can download and print copies from here.
- Bone Scan
- Brain Perfusion Scan
- DAT Brain Scan
- Heart Scan (Technetium Myocardial Perfusion Scan)
- Thallium Heart Scan (Thallium Myocardial Perfusion Scan)
- Cardiac Blood Pool Scan (MUGA Heart Scan)
- Lung Scan
- GFR Test
- The Renogram
- DMSA Kidney Scan
- FDG PET Scan
- Thyroid Scan
- Radio-iodine Treatment for Hyperthyroidism
All the above leaflets are in pdf format. If you print them on A4 paper they will come out in a font size that should be easy to read. Alternatively, if you have a printer that can do double-sided printing, you can print them as A5 booklets, but this will produce a smaller font size. To do this select the ‘Booklet’ feature if this is available in the printing software on your computer and choose ‘landscape’ orientation. The printer software will automatically reorder the pages correctly so that they can be folded into a booklet.
