Correlapaedia - a Correlative Encyclopedia of Pediatric Imaging, Surgery, and Pathology: Case 1
Multiple images from a Nuclear Medicine GI bleeding study. Immediate images are on the top row, 4 hour delayed images are on the bottom row. The AP and lateral immediate images of the abdomen and pelvis demonstrate pooling of tracer in multiple discrete areas in the abdomen and pelvis. There is continued radiotracer accumulation in these multiple discrete areas over time as seen on the 4 hour delayed images. The immediate lateral view of the right forearm (middle upper row) shows tracer pooling as well. No GI bleeding was noted during the course of the exam.
