The gamma-ray emitting technetium-99m (metastable) is widely used for medical diagnostic studies.Technetium is a remarkable corrosion inhibitor for steel, and adding very small amounts can provide excellent protection. This use is limited to closed systems as technetium is radioactive.

Extremely small amounts of Tc-99 have entered the environment near a few radioactive waste disposal sites.

Technetium is the first element in the periodic table which in naturally radioactive. It's isotopes are unstable.

The radioisotope is used to diagnose diseased organs. To do bone scans, kidney scans, heart scans, and lung scans. More that 85% of these kinds of imaging procedures use this particular type of technetium isotope.
