Radionuclide Imaging .
Imaging, Gamma Camera .
Imaging, Radionuclide .
Gamma Camera Imaging .
Radioisotope Scanning .
Scanning, Radioisotope .
Scintigraphy .
Scintiphotography .
The production of an image obtained by cameras that detect the radioactive emissions of an injected radionuclide as it has distributed differentially throughout tissues in the body. The image obtained from a moving detector is called a scan, while the image obtained from a stationary camera device is called a scintiphotograph. .
Radionuclide .
Species of atom characterized by the number of protons and of neutrons in its nucleus. Usually specified by the symbol of the element and the mass number, as in 235U, our uranium-235 (Material V - Gunn, S.W.A. Multilingual Dictionary of Disaster Medicine and International Relief, 1990) .

Radioactive Isotopes .
Isotopes that exhibit radioactivity and undergo radioactive decay. (From Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed & McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed) .

Techniques, Subtraction .
Combination or superimposition of two images for demonstrating differences between them (e.g., radiograph with contrast vs. one without, radionuclide images using different radionuclides, radiograph vs. radionuclide image) and in the preparation of audiovisual materials (e.g., offsetting identical images, coloring of vessels in angiograms). .

Radioisotope Generators .
Separation systems containing a relatively long-lived parent radionuclide which produces a short-lived daughter in its decay scheme. The daughter can be periodically extracted (milked) by means of an appropriate eluting agent. .
