UNLABELLED At present also radionuclide methods are used to diagnose pulmonary malignancies. One of them is solitary pulmonary nodule (SPN) scintigraphy using 99mTc-depreotide. 99mTc-depreotide is a somatostatin analogue with affinity to 3 out of 5 subtypes of somatostatin receptors. AIM OF THE STUDY was to confirmed the usefulness of 99mTc-depreotide in detecting malignancy in SPN; finding lymph nodes metastases; and overlapping scintigraphic scans and CT in precise localizsation of… CONTINUE READING
