Skeletal uptake and soft-tissue retention of 186Re-HEDP and 153Sm-EDTMP in patients with metastatic bone disease.

UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to introduce a new quantification method for 153Sm-ethylenediaminetetramethylenephosphonate (EDTMP) and 186Re-(tin)1,1-hydroxyethylidene diphosphonate (HEDP) to separately measure bone uptake and soft-tissue retention of these radiopharmaceuticals. METHODS Studies were performed on 23 men and 6 women undergoing… (More)
