Since its introduction in 1976 as an imaging procedure, the use of labelled leucocyte scintigraphy has continued to increase. Nowadays it is a routine procedure in most nuclear medicine departments for the investigation of different inflammatory pathologies involving leucocytic infiltration. These include bone and soft tissue infections, inflammatory bowel disease, vascular prosthesis infection and fever of unknown origin [1–4]. Despite their non-specificity, the use of non-polar, lipid-soluble… CONTINUE READING
