Gammagrama del hígado

Después de que un radioisótopo se inyecta en la vena se toma una serie de imágenes del hígado con un escáner. El gammagrama del hígado es probablemente la mejor manera de estudiar el hígado sin cirugía. Éste es particularmente valioso porque puede proporcionar información acerca de la función hepática. También se utiliza para confirmar resultados de otros exámenes.Gammagrama del hígado
