Procedure Kit/Trays, Nuclear Imaging
Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (i.e., either custom or standard kits) needed for procedures intended to obtain images by detecting radiation from different parts of the body after a radioactive tracer material is administered (i.e., nuclear imaging). Items in these kits usually include a syringe, a needle, and imaging agent (e.g., monoclonal antibody, peptide), a shoulder support, a knee wedge, an acrylic arm support, and security straps. The kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Nuclear imaging procedure kits and trays are used to obtain nuclear images intended for assessing how organs function in order to detect abnormal tissue conditions (e.g., neoplasms). They are used in nuclear medicine departments in hospitals and other healthcare facilities.
