In this study, we examined the use of 111In-labelled platelet imaging to predict the outcome of partial splenic embolization (PSE) in patients with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). Thirty-eight patients with a clinical diagnosis of ITP underwent 111In-labelled platelet scintigraphy. Twenty-four patients with intractable ITP underwent PSE after… CONTINUE READING
