Do I need to be isolated after X-ray injection?

Question:
The doctor asked me, today I went to inject drugs to take x-rays, do I have to be isolated when I return?

Hello. Regarding your question, I would like to have a few thoughts as follows:
During the scan you will be injected with a small amount of radioactive tracer into the blood and these substances are mostly excreted then through urine or urine. poop is out in about 24 hours, so you need to wash the toilet immediately and wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water each time you go to the bathroom. The amount of radiation is usually very small and not enough to harm people who are in contact with the patient after the scan, but to be safe for 24 hours after the scan you should not be exposed to young children and do not breast-feed if you are nursing. Please. Thank you for submitting your question to Vinmec Health System.
