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
Assessment of lung toxicity caused by bleomycin and amiodarone by Tc-99m HMPAO lung scintigraphy in rats
TLDR
Tc-99m HMPAO lung scan are found to be useful in the identification of patients with lung toxicity and in histopathological examination, where almost all pathological findings were present in the right lung. Expand
Tc-99m HMPAO Scintigraphy in Amiodarone-Induced Acute Lung Toxicity: Comparison With Tc-99m DTPA Inhalation Scintigraphy
TLDR
Tc-99m HMPAO scintigraphy may have a role in the diagnosis of AD lung toxicity, Nevertheless, there is a need for longitudinal studies investigating patients under AD therapy using follow-up Tc-9m HM PAO scintsigraphy. Expand
Technetium-99m Hexamethylpropylene Amine Oxime Lung Scintigraphy Findings in Low-Dose Amiodarone Therapy
TLDR
Lung uptake changes of Tc-99m HMPAO using low doses of AD (5 mg/kg/day) during long-term therapy in a rabbit model were clarified and both scintigraphic studies and histopathologic examinations showed nonspecific changes. Expand
99MTc-Hexamethylpropyleneamine Oxime Imaging for Early Detection of Acute Lung Injury in Rats Exposed to Hyperoxia or Lipopolysaccharide Treatment
TLDR
The potential utility of HMPAO as a tool for detecting ALI at a phase likely to exhibit minimal clinical evidence of injury is suggested. Expand
Technetium-99m-hexamethylpropylene amine oxime lung scintigraphy findings in patients with Behçet's disease
TLDR
The results indicated that determining the T1/2 values and the L/Li ratios on Tc-99m-HMPAO lung imaging should be an objective method to assess subclinical pulmonary damage even in the early stages of BD in the patients. Expand
Role of glutathione in lung retention of 99mTc-hexamethylpropyleneamine oxime in two unique rat models of hyperoxic lung injury.
TLDR
Results suggest that an increase in the GSH-dependent component of the lung retention of HMPAO may be a marker of tolerance to sustained exposure to hyperoxia. Expand
Effects of smoking on the lung accumulation of [11C]McN5652
TLDR
Lung uptake of [11C](−)McN5652 was influenced by smoking, possibly because the probable nonspecific binding accumulation was changed as [11 C](−), a radioligand for serotonin transporter (5- HTT), was reported to have negligible affinity to 5-HTT. Expand
Redox imaging of inflammation in asthma.
TLDR
It is identified that the airway epithelium of patients with asthma is shifted to greater reducing potential, recognized by a higher ratio of reduced to oxidized glutathione, which occurs in response to the episodic oxidative inflammation of asthma. Expand
Protection by Inhaled Hydrogen Therapy in a Rat Model of Acute Lung Injury can be Tracked in vivo Using Molecular Imaging.
TLDR
The results suggest the potential utility of these SPECT biomarkers for in vivo assessment of key cellular pathways in the pathogenesis of ALI and for monitoring responses to therapies and track the effectiveness of H2 therapy in vivo after as early as 24 h of hyperoxia exposure. Expand

The results suggest that at least two different mechanisms in the lungs were at work and the AI damage in EMPH developed mainly in the lipophilic part of the alveoli, which was different from the traditional pulmonary function such as DLCO. Expand
