Full history/Diagnosis is available below
Occasionally, a liver-spleen scintigraphy is ordered to assess spleen size, assess for splenic infarct, or to evaluate for degree of colloid shift to bone marrow and spleen as evidence of liver dysfunction. It may also be used to assess for accessory splenic tissue, although a heat-damaged red blood cell scan may be superior for this purpose.
