GI Bleed Scan

A gastric intestinal bleed scan (GI bleed scan) is a nuclear medicine exam using a radioactive tracer of your blood that allows doctors to locate where the bleeding is from in the stomach or intestine.

No prep is needed for the GI Bleed scan. The imaging will take a minimum of 1 hour, and possibly 2 hours. You must not move during the time the camera is taking pictures.
