BACKGROUND Preliminary studies have shown that (99m)Tc-hexakis-2-methoxyisobutylisonitrile (MIBI) is an interesting tracer for various tumors. The aim of this study was to determine the feasibility of using (99m)Tc-MIBI as a diagnostic and staging procedure for lung cancer. METHODS We prospectively compared the results of biopsy with (99m)Tc-MIBI imaging in patients with potentially resectable lung lesions (stages IIIA or lower). In the patients with radiopharmaceutical uptake, the staging… CONTINUE READING
