Nuclear scan of the esophagus: A nuclear scan of the esophagus is a functional image of the upper gastrointestinal tract 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.
