So my Nuc Med test wasn’t nearly as interesting as I thought it would be:

  1. First of all, the machine makes absolutely no noise at all, so you can’t really even tell if it is working or not. A little whirring would have gone a long way in creating the right ambiance.
  2. Second, there was no gown, just my regular clothes that I walked in wearing. If you are in a hospital, you should look the part.
  3. Third, you have to lie still for several minutes while the image is being taken, with nothing to look at except some safety caution sticker on the bottom of the machine. This for a machine that you can’t even guarantee is working (see point #1)
  4. Finally, even though I asked really nicely, she wouldn’t let me see any of my images!

In summary, definitely not worth the $8 admission price.

All in all, I think I’ll have to give this one two stars. I could be a little tougher on it, but they did inject me with radioactive dye, so I have to give them points for that. Even if I didn’t glow.

Side note: My coworker actually turned off the lights in the meeting room today to see if I would glow.
