How are radioisotopes used in medicine?



  1. 0 Votes

    Radioisotopes are most commonly used in medicine in order to target a specific organ for diagnosis. In this process, radioisotopes, most commonly technetium-99, are shot into the body at a specific organ or area to detect chemical compounds that could signal disease or infection. Ninety percent of the 30 million tests done every year by any one of the 10,000 hospitals with the technology are for diagnostic purposes.
