Little is known about the organ distribution and fate of human platelets. We investigated the kinetics, organ distribution, and fate of autologous 111In-oxine-labeled platelets in 12 normal volunteers, four asplenic subjects, and four patients with splenomegaly. The initial recovery of infused 111In-platelets from the circulation was 97.8 +/- 9.8% (means(More)
The radioactive inert gas xenon (133Xe) is a well-established isotopic indicator used to assess vascular status in many organ systems. We employed xenon-133 to evaluate male impotence. Xenon-133 was injected subcutaneously at the level of the coronal sulcus in the detumescent state. Using the gamma camera, sequential images were obtained and(More)
