Test Details
Test Code:NM0051
Test Name:Infection Imaging (Leucocyte Scan)
Test Details & Preparation
A white blood cell (WBC) scan is an imaging test that uses a radioactive material called a tracer. It looks for infection or inflammation in the body. It is a type of nuclear scan.

Blood will be taken from one of your veins. White blood cells are separated from the rest of the blood sample. They are then mixed with a small amount of a radioactive material (radioisotope) called indium-111. These cells are considered tagged.

The tagged white blood cells are injected back into your body through a vein 2 to 3 hours later. The tagged cells gather in areas of inflammation or infection.

Your body will be scanned 6 to 24 hours later. You will lie on a table for the scan. The scanner, which looks like an x-ray machine, will pick up radiation given off by the tagged white blood cells. A computer creates an image from the radiation, which is picked up and displayed on a screen.

You do not have to take any special steps after the test is over. You may go back to your normal diet, activity, and medicines.

You do not need special preparation for this test. You must sign a consent form. You will need to wear a hospital gown or loose clothing without metal zippers or snaps. You will need to take off jewellery, dentures, or anything with metal before the scan.

Tell your doctor if you have had a gallium scan within the previous month are receiving dialysis, total parenteral nutrition (through an IV), or steroid therapy have hyperglycaemia are taking long-term antibiotics. A white blood cell (WBC) scan is not recommended for pregnant women.

WBC scan is done to look for a hidden infection. It is very useful in looking for infection or inflammation in the abdomen or bones. Your doctor may suggest this test if you may have an abscess, osteomyelitis, or unexplained fever, particularly after surgery.

A normal result means that tagged cells have not gathered abnormally. Abnormal results may mean you have an active inflammation or infection. This could include a liver or abdominal abscess, or osteomyelitis of the bone.
