Pulmonary perfusion scintigraphy with Tc-99m MAA was performed on 182 patients, on whom either pneumonectomy or lobectomy was performed, because of primary nonsmall-cell lung carcinoma. Among them, 76 underwent pneumonectomy, and 106 underwent lobectomy. The mean value of the perfusion fraction (PF) of the affected lung of the patients undergoing… CONTINUE READING
