New starch-based radiotracer for lung perfusion scintigraphy


In order to avoid the microbiological risks linked to human serum albumin macroaggregates (MAA) used for lung perfusion scintigraphy, we developed a new starch-based Tc-99m potential radiopharmaceutical. Microparticles were prepared from oxidised starch coupled to natural polyamine for Tc-99m complexation. Suspensions were formulated as ready-to-use kits… (More)
