Oh, okay. o.o It's okay anyways, I just saw my bio book mention this but it didn't explain it so I was curious.

I'm not perfectly sure, but I believe that radioactive isotopes act as "tags" or tracers. If you "tag" a cancerous growth with the radioactive material, you would be able to see where the cancer is traveling due due to the output of the isotope. This article sheds a bit of light on the matter : http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/Non-Power-Nuclear-Applications/Radioisotopes/Radioisotopes-in-Medicine/
