2. What is a Bone scan? Which isotope is used?An isotope labelled scan using Technecium 99

  1. I have a question, I have thyroid cancer , had a TT and RAI ablation therapy. I am scheduled for a PET scan because they found a area in the precarnial area on a CT I had done. When I go for the PET scan can I have a copy of the picture of my PET scan like I did when I had my RAI WBS? I live in Canada. I want to have all of this because I send all test results to the mayo clinic for review.
