Thirty cases of recurrent pulmonary infection and ten control cases underwent radionuclide gastroesophagography endoscopy, histopathology and barium esophagography to evaluate the clinical efficacy of scintigraphic technique in, detection of gastroesophageal reflux. After ingesting 500 micro curie of Tc-Sulphur colloid mixed in milk, patients esophageal(More)
No large prospective study is available on use of a radionuclide method to assess frostbite and its response to conservative treatment. Recently, a large retrospective study using two-phase bone scintigraphy suggested that non-uptake (or low uptake) in frostbite lesions in the blood pool or bone phase had a strong correlation with the subsequent need for(More)
Technetium-99m methoxy isobutylisonitrate (MIBI) has been found to be taken up by various tumors, including thyroid cancer. We prospectively evaluated 77 patients with cold thyroid solitary nodules on Tc-99m pertechnetate scintigraphy to evaluate the diagnostic value of Tc-99m MIBI scintigraphy. The aim of this study was to find out if thyroid nodules can(More)
Tc-99m MDP and Tc-99m ciprofloxacin scans were performed in 14 patients with suspected tubercular bone disease and in 2 cases of nontubercular bone infection. In 5 patients the findings were true negative. There were no false positives and 1 was false negative. The sensitivity, specificity, and positive predictive value were found to be 93, 71, and 87.5%,(More)
One hundred and forty eight subjects with euthyroid solitary thyroid nodules (STN) were taken up for radionuclide perfusion study. They were found to have a cold STN on 99mTc thyroid static scan. All had fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC), and except for subjects with chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis, were subjected to surgery for tissue diagnosis by(More)
Tc-99m HIG has recently come into prominence as an inflammation seeking radiotracer. The authors describe a novel use of the agent for imaging protein-losing enteropathy. The agent may have certain advantages over Tc-99m HSA, which is currently being used for imaging protein loss.
The rare presentation of hyperthyroidism caused by an intrathoracic goiter with a normal-sized cervical thyroid gland is described. The toxic intrathoracic goiter demonstrated avid uptake of [131I] and [99mTc]pertechnetate, with comparatively faint isotopic accumulation seen in the cervical thyroid. A chest roentgenogram and radioisotope scan should be(More)
Tc-99m Infecton imaging was used to examine patients thought to have pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) based on clinical and sonographic findings. Twenty-one patients with PID had Tc-99m Infecton scans. Eleven patients underwent a second radionuclide scan after 1 month of antibiotic treatment. The diagnosis of PID was confirmed by laparoscopy in one patient(More)
OBJECTIVE On the basis of our hypothesis that lipophilic cations may be more suitable for ventilation lung scintigraphy than the conventional technetium-99m diethylenetriamine penta-acetic acid (Tc-DTPA), comparative studies were carried out. BASIC METHODS The nebulization potential of nine routine radiopharmaceuticals was compared on medical and(More)
