Kinetics of Tc-99m MIBI uptake was studied in 19 patients with lung lesions (6 benign, 13 malignant). Two dynamic studies were acquired after the I.V. injection of 10-15mCi (370-550 MBq); the first was every second for 60 seconds, followed by a second one every minute for 30 minutes. Delayed images were acquired at two and three hours. By assigning regions of interest (ROI) over the lung lesions (TR), contralateral normal lung (NL) and the heart (Ht), time activity curves (TAC) were generated… CONTINUE READING
