A review is presented of Veterinary Nuclear Medicine focusing on scintigraphical examinations. Most frequently applied clinical examination protocols are described, i.e. bone, thyroid, hepatic, renal, brain, cardiac and pulmonary scintigraphy, as well as oncological and inflammation scintigraphy, and miscellaneous scintigraphical examinations. Emphasis is placed on the types of procedures and the clinical information gained therefrom. No attempt is made to present or justify procedural details concerning instrumentation, radiopharmaceutical preparations, kinetic or radiation safety aspects. Detailed examinations are described following a schematic framework as: radiopharmaceuticals, examination protocol, indications and data evaluation, and illustrations. All the illustrations were taken between 1995 and 1999 from the data archive of the authors.
