Differentiation of bronchogenic carcinoma from secondary changes, obstructive pneumonitis and/or collapse by I-123 IMP lung imaging.


Serial lung images with N-isopropyl-p-[I-123]-iodoamphetamine (I-123 IMP) were obtained to assess the imaging findings and to clarify the lesion to uptake relationships in 74 lesions in 73 patients with various histological types of bronchogenic carcinoma. A decreased uptake area was observed in all 74 lesions in the initial one or two-min I-123 IMP image… (More)
