Patients are administered radiotracers (by injection, ingestion or inhalation) that localize in specific organs in the body. The localization of these tracers enables these organs to be imaged by gamma cameras with the data analyzed and stored on computers for functional information through analysis.
Therapeutic doses of radiotracers may also be administered to treat thyroid and other diseases.
