A non-invasive radioisotope technique for the measurement of total liver blood flow (TBF) is described. The method requires the use of two intravenously administered tracers, 99mTc (technetium 99m) human serum albumin (HSA) and 99mTc colloid. Computer analysis of first-pass time activity curves for HSA for liver and lung tissues yields values for the… CONTINUE READING
