So I've currently got TC-99m from the ANSTO Australian Synchrotron floating around my body. Requested as a bone scan, so they got funny when I said it was for an infection (I'm pretty sure my Dr knows what he's talking about). But they did it anyway.
The big mystery is why they were getting all funny about my FEET. Did neck (understandable) and feet in 3D, plus CT. DAFUQ?
Correction: my mate Dr Helen MC advises me that all of Australia's Tc-99m comes from the OPAL reactor at Lucas Heights, as I originally thought, not the synchrotron.
Gutted I didn't bring a geiger counter, as she says that I'd totally be able to pick it up! (Bladder, the tracer is eliminated through the kidneys).
