ProstaScint Scan

What is the ProstaScint Scan?

A ProstaScint scan is a nuclear scan of the prostate gland and surrounding structures. Piedmont Healthcare uses this advanced technology to check for prostate size and any infection or tumors. 

You will have an IV inserted in your hand or lower arm to inject a radioactive substance. You will receive the first scan 30 minutes after the injection. The procedure will take about one to one and a half hours on Day 1. Before leaving on Day 1, you will be given a bowel prep kit with instructions on how to use it. You will take the bowel prep at home and return to the hospital four days later to complete the final scan.
