Gallium-67 scintigraphy has been reported to be useful in the diagnosis of noninfectious interstitial nephritis. We studied 12 patients with Ga-67 citrate that were diagnosed as having noninfectious interstitial nephritis on renal biopsy. Only seven of the twelve patients with interstitial nephritis on biopsy were scan-positive. Gallium-67 scintigraphy may(More)
Using both Tc-99m methylene diphosphonate and gallium-67 citrate, images of the lower extremities in New Zealand white rabbits were obtained on sequential days after inoculation of tibias with Staphylococcus aureus. Gallium-67 scintigraphy was positive earlier in the course of infection than Tc-99m MDP scintigraphy. In addition to 4-hr Ga-67 scintigrams,(More)
The right tibias of sixty-six rabbits were injected with a suspension of Staphylococcus aureus and sodium morrhuate. After four weeks, 43 rabbits developed osteomyelitis and were started on a course of antibiotics. During treatment a gallium-67 scintigram was obtained every two weeks, for up to 10 weeks. During the treatment weeks, 25 rabbits developed(More)
A 14-yr-old white male with a severe form of progressive diaphyseal dysplasia (Engelmann-Camurati disease) was referred to our institution for evaluation of splenomegaly, which is not usually associated with the disease. Our studies included bone-marrow, and liver-spleen scans. These scintigraphic findings, along with the probable cause for splenomegaly,(More)
Hemangiopericytoma is a soft tissue tumor composed histologically of pericytes of Zimmerman, which line capillaries. These neoplasms have been observed throughout the body in soft tissue and bone. Presented here is a case of abdominal hemangiopericytoma proven histologically that simulated an accessory spleen on a number of studies including Tc-99m sulfur(More)
Cerebral computed tomography, with and without iodinated contrast, revealed the appearance and evolution of lesions in a 32-year-old man with multiple sclerosis. Two areas were enhanced with contrast, with one showing a mild mass effect and rim of enhancement. Serial brain scintigraphy using technetium-99m glucoheptonate, following the computed tomography,(More)
Twenty rabbits with chronic osteomyelitis of the tibia were treated for eight weeks and then scanned with Tc-99m MDP and Ga-67 citrate. All were sacrificed and bacteriologic cultures of the tibia were obtained. All rabbits had positive Tc-99m MDP scans at the end of treatment despite thirteen cures of osteomyelitis. Eight had negative gallium scans and(More)
