AdreView is a substance that's used to help detect certain tumors. AdreView contains iobenguane I-123, which is a radioactive substance that helps inspect certain organs using a gamma camera. AdreView is a type of drug called a diagnostic radiopharmaceutical, and it's used to diagnose adrenal gland tumors and other rare neuroendocrine tumors. AdreView is given intravenously as an injection given by a healthcare professional in a hospital or clinic. It's usually done right before an imaging test is performed. Before you are given AdreView, and for about 48 hours after, you should drink a lot of extra fluids. This is because AdreView is radioactive and can be harmful if not eliminated from your body through your urine. Talk to your doctor if you have questions about receiving AdreView.
