I believe in the case of nuclear x-rays it could be the pill administered before hand. Does anyone for sure the quantity of nuclei being dispersed in each capsule.
After I had one done I've noticed alot of dryness in my throat because thats where the intial x-rays where performed and the pill was to target that specific area.
