The radionuclide investigation of skeletal trauma in the past was confined generally to scintimetry and an occasional bone scan. The development of improved radiopharmaceuticals, including 99mTc-labeled compounds with their enhanced sensitivity, and the refinement of imaging devices offering superior resolution and speed have allowed a more detailed(More)
Contrary to earlier literature reports, the impurities in toluidine blue O were shown by column chromatography, TLC, and mass spectrometry to be N-methyl homologs of 2-methylthionine rather than N-methyl homologs of thionine. Small amounts of 2-methyl-3-amino-7-methylaminophenothiazine and 2-methyl-3,7-diaminophenothiazine were identified in commercial(More)
The observation by Subramanian and his co-workers that a 99mTc-labeled polyphosphate had excellent affinity for bone has led to widespread use of 99mTc-labeled phosphates as bone scanning agents. Initially, only polyphosphate was employed, but because of somewhat inconstant results and difficulty in preparation of this product, other phosphate compounds(More)
