Sensitivity and specificity of perfusion scintigraphy
combined with chest radiography for acute pulmonary embolism in PIOPED II.
is a first-line technique for surveying the entire skeleton for metastases in patients with cancer of the breast and prostate, as well as small-cell lung carcinoma.
is an established technique in which a radio label is swallowed and the disposition in the gut is photographed externally over time.
This clinical entity may be imaged by one, or a combination of, the following procedures: a 3-phase bone scan, Ga-67 imaging and labelled leukocyte scintigraphy
This study evaluated the usefulness of asialoglycoprotein receptor scintigraphy
The patient was examined by an iodine-123 metaiodobenzylguanidine scintigraphy
with increased radiotracer uptake in the corresponding prostatic mass on CT imaging.
Myocardial perfusion scintigraphy
showed anterior and anteroseptal wall ischemia.
Full body scintigraphy
that was performed following the treatment revealed no involvement outside the thyroid bed.
Objective: Renal scintigraphy
has privileges in imaging methods in terms of providing functional information.
Among the medical procedures where Tc-99m is used are: Lung Scintigraphy
Tc-99m Pertechnetate for Meckel's scan; Tc-99m Labelled RBC's for Gastro-intestinal Bleeding, Gastroesophageal Reflux (GER) and Gastric Emptying Time (GET); Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis; Liver scan; Liver SPECT scan; Hepatobiliary; Renal Scintigraphy
; DMSA Renal scan; DTPA Renal scan with In-Vitro Test; Diuretic Renal scan with In-Vitro Test; Captopril Pre and Post DTPA; Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) with in-Vitro test; Renal scan MAG 3; Renal SPECT scan; and Bone Scintigraphy
Paul Proctor MRCVS of Simply Horses Equine Vets in Durham commented: "We have just started using this innovative diagnostic technique and were lucky enough to compare the results with the tried and proven imaging modality of nuclear scintigraphy
MRI, CT, ultrasound scan (USS) and scintigraphy
are all used for this purpose.
