Test Name:Meckels Diverliculum
Test Details & Preparation
A nuclear medicine Meckel’s scan is a diagnostic exam used to detect or rule out a Meckel’s Diverticulum. It is common for a Meckel’s diverticulum to have the same gastric mucosa as the lining of the stomach. The radiopharmaceutical injection used for imaging accumulates in the gastric mucosa and will localize or show a Meckel’s diverticulum on the scan.

Before the exam, please tell your doctor if you are or think you may be pregnant or are nursing. You will be asked not to eat or drink anything for 4 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time. In addition, you will be asked to take 1 Zantac (or generic name Ranitidine) tablet 1 hour before the scheduled appointment time. For a child (1-12 years), this may be given in liquid form is necessary and requires a prescription from your doctor.

Infants (less than 1 year of age) will be given an injection of Zantac once they arrive in the Nuclear Medicine Department. It is injected for a period of 20 minutes, then after a 1 hour wait, the exam is started.

A nuclear medicine technologist will perform the exam. After verifying the time of your zantac dose, the technologist will inject a radiopharmaceutical (a diagnostic drug which contains a very small amount of radioactivity) into a vein in your arm. Then, while you lie flat, a special camera is placed over your abdomen and images are taken. Typically, many images are taken over approximately 30 minutes. It is important that you lie as still as possible during imaging. After 30 minutes, the images will be reviewed with a radiologist to determine if any additional images are required. If not, the exam is completed and you may leave.

The radiologist will review and interpret the scan shortly after the exam is completed. A written report will be sent to your doctor. Your doctor will discuss these results with you.
