Measurement of lung tissue mass, thoracic blood and interstitial volumes by transmission/emission scanning using [99mTc]pertechnetate.

Abstract

1. We have developed a method for non-invasive measurement of lung tissue mass, thoracic blood and interstitial volumes by a combination of transmission and emission scanning with technetium isotope (99mTc). 2. In a lung model we demonstrated that emission counts could be successfully corrected for attenuation with data obtained by transmission scanning… (More)
