  5. Pagets diseaseInvolves the intravenous injection of a radioisotope, which is absorbed by the bone. After approximately three hours, the skeleton is scanned with a gamma camera (scanner), moving from one end of the body to the other. The scanner detects the areas where the bone absorbs the isotope and converts the radioactive image to a screen where the concentrations show up as pinpoint dots cast in the image of a skeleton.
