Technetium-99m-antimony trisulfide colloid ((99m)Tc-ATC) was investigated with varying specific activity in the rat lymphatic system, as well as its binding to rat blood cells in vitro. Low, moderate and high doses of (99m)Tc-ATC were subdermally injected into tails of rats (n=3) and 30min later whole body lymphoscintigraphic images were acquired. (99m)Tc-ATC was incubated for 30min at 37°C with whole blood (n=4) as for control, at 4°C as for hypothermia, as opsonized at 37°C and… CONTINUE READING
