A radioactive tracer, also called a radioactive label, is a substance containing a radioisotope. Tracers can be used to measure the speed of chemical processes and to track the movement of a substance through a natural system. Radioactive tracing was developed by George de Hevesy.

The tracers are applied in autoradiography, nuclear medicine, including single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), and positron emission tomography.

Topic: Gallium Scan

Test Overview

A gallium scan is a nuclear medicine test that uses a special camera to take pictures of specific tissues in the body after a radioactive tracer (radionuclide or radioisotope) makes them visible. Each type of tissue that may be scanned (including bones, organs, glands, and blood vessels) uses a different radioactive compound as a tracer. The radioactivity of the tracer decreases over a period of weeks. It remains in the body temporarily before it is eliminated as waste, usually in the urine or stool (feces).

During a gallium scan, the tracer (radioactive gallium citrate) is injected into a vein in the arm. It travels through the bloodstream and into the body's tissues, primarily the bones, liver, intestine, and areas of tissue where inflammation or a buildup of white blood cells (WBCs) is present. It usually takes the tracer a few days to accumulate in these areas, so in most cases a scan is done at 2 days and repeated at 3 days after the tracer is injected. Areas where the tracer accumulates in higher-than-normal amounts show up as bright or “hot” spots in the pictures. The problem areas may be caused by infection, certain inflammatory diseases, or a tumor.

agree  V&M Stanković: Za kolegu Ahmedina: ne znam o kakvom „umetku/objektu koji se ubacuje u tijelo“ govorite i gde vidite prevod rečenice - pročitajte pažljivo navedene linkove, pa verujem da ćete se i vi složiti da je ovo pravi prevod za „radioactive tracer“.

disagree  xxxKale75: tracer je ovdje u ulozi supstence/molekula cije se kretanje prati putem odgovarajucih uredjaja, misljenja sam da nije nikakav umetak/objekat koji se ubacuje u tijelo...prevod termina je ovdje u pitanju a ne recenice kolegice Vesna..pozdrav...
