Diagnosis of biliary atresia with radionuclide hepatobiliary imaging.
Sixteen patients with biliary atresia and 11 patients with neonatal hepatitis were studied preoperatively with either Tc-99m-diethyl-IDA or TC-99m-diisopropyl-IDA. Two parameters were evaluated:Expand

Clinical comparison of 99mTc-diethyl-IDA and 99mTc-PIPIDA for evaluation of the hepatobiliary system.
Fifteen patients with a wide range of hepatobiliary function were studied with both 99mTc-diethyl-IDA and 99mTc-PIPIDA. In images obtained 5 to 60 minutes after injection, 99mTc-diethyl-IDA wasExpand
