In 1970, lower than the sponsorship of Oak Ridge linked Univer­ sities (ORAU), a bunch of scientific investigators shaped the Cooper­ ative workforce to check Localization of Radiopharmaceuticals. the 1st radiopharmaceutical chosen for learn was once 67-Gallium (67-Ga) administered because the citrate. the article of the examine used to be to de­ termine the usefulness of 67-Ga within the prognosis and therapy of sufferers with quite a few malignancies. investment for the undertaking used to be granted by way of the U.

This monograph used to be written to give chosen examples from this crew of numerous malignancies obvious during this 28-month interval. No test has been made to correlate this total event statistically. particularly, this presentation is to assist familiarize the practitioner of Nuclear drugs with the big variety of usefulness for 67-Ga scintigraphy whereas making him conscious of the adaptation in experiment visual appeal and watchful of the various pitfalls of 67-Ga test interpretation. Permission to exploit those sufferer experiences and x-rays used to be generously granted through Dr. Paul P.

67-Ga scintigraphy has been more accurate in detecting skeletal metastases from primary bone tumors than roentgenography but not as accurate as skeletal scintigraphy. Lung metastases are particularly frequent in Ewing's sarcoma and osteogenic sarcoma and are detected far more efficiently by chest roentgenography than by 67-Ga scintigraphy. On the other hand, bone tumors metastasizing to the mediastinum or retroperitoneum although rare, are detected with greater efficiency on 67-Ga scans than by radiographic studies.

Correlation with the fluorine-18 skeletal scintigram (Fig. 4-4B) reveals that the majority of abnormal 67-Ga accumulation is within a soft tissue mass associated with the patient's ischial tumor. This is shown by the elevated nuclide-filled bladder on the bone scintigram.
