Lung uptake of intravenously injected Tc-99m-HMPAO is observed in smokers and in lung toxicity due to various agents. We investigated the Tc-99m-HMPAO uptake of bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) cells in the lungs after incubation inin vitro conditions (6 patients), intravenous injection (IV) (7 patients) and inhalation (INH) (6 patients) of Tc-99m-HMPAO in order to show whether BAL cells are also responsible for Tc-99m-HMPAO uptake in the lungs. Cell/supernatant (C/S) count ratio was 7.0±3.5, 29.3… Expand
