PURPOSE The objective of this study was to determine whether the Tc-99m red blood cells (Tc-99m RBC) method has a true advantage over the Tc-99m sulfur colloid (Tc-99m SC) technique in a busy clinical practice for detecting and localizing lower gastrointestinal bleeding sites. METHODS Three hundred fifty-nine consecutive gastrointestinal bleeding studies… CONTINUE READING
