[Single-photon emission computerized tomography in the diagnosis of liver diseases].

Abstract

A comprehensive examination of patients with various liver diseases was performed using the methods of axial x-ray computerized tomography, ultrasound scanning compared to plane liver scintigraphy with 99m TC-colloid and a new method of one-photon emission computerized tomography (OECT). The sensitivity of the OECT, SG and USE methods was 92.7; 75.6 and 91.4% respectively, and specificity 88.0; 72.0 and 80.0%. The authors discussed the advantages of the OECT method and its diagnostic value in liver focal and diffuse lesions.
