The capacity of irradiated rabbit submandibular glands to concentrate 99mTcO4 pertechnetate

Abstract

The capacity of irradiated rabbit salivary glands to accumulate 99mTcO4 pertechnetate offers a means for functional evaluation of radiation injury. In 50 rabbits one side of the head was exposed to 15 Gy irradiation in a single dose. Measurements of isotope were made 4 and 10 months thereafter. The seromucous acini (80% of the intralobular tissue) were… (More)
