Technetium-99m white blood cell ((99m)Tc-WBC) imaging has been part of the initial evaluation and follow-up of more than 400 children presenting with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. Studies have suggested that (99m)Tc-WBC imaging is superior to contrast radiology in assessing the extent and activity of IBD. With only(More)
Novacor left ventricular assist devices were implanted in 10 patients. We used blood-pool radionuclide angiography and echocardiography to evaluate the response of the left and right ventricle to the left ventricular assist. Radionuclide angiography was done before and after implantation of the Novacor left ventricular assist devices in all cases. All(More)
