Nuclear scan of the ureter

Nuclear scan of the ureter: A nuclear scan of the ureter is a functional image of the ureters, which are tubes that carry urine from the kidney to the bladder, following intravenous injection of a radioactive tracer substance; the substance is uniformly metabolized by normal cells, whereas diseased cells acquire the substance more readily. The increase in radioactivity is detected by a gamma-ray camera and generates an image that shows the diseased area.
