A bone scan is used to detect the presence of bone disease, for example, tumours, fractures, infection, arthritis, etc.
Blood circulates through every organ of the body, removing oxygen and nutrients to the organs and removing waste products away from the organs. When a disease is present, there is usually a change in the blood supply and function of the affected organ. For example, if you break a bone, the body will increase the bony metabolic activity and the blood supply to help heal the break. A bone scan is useful in detecting areas of unusual bone growth or destruction.
