My child is going for a MAG3 Renal Scan (Nuclear Medicine test) in hospital

Scarlett shows children and parents what happens when your child needs to have their kidneys checked with a MAG3 Renal Scan. A small amount of radioactivity is used for this nuclear medicine test. Scarlett asks the doctors if the scan hurts and how long it will take. This video was developed in partnership with the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.
