From a clinical point of view, there is a definite need for a readily available reliable method to detect and localise both sterile and septic inflammatory processes. In the opinion of many surgeons, an agent that would successfully localise occult abscesses of the abdomen would be even more valuable than tumour localising agents . A similar opinion seems to prevail among rheumatologists and orthopedic surgeons seeking an objective method to study skeletal inflammatory diseases, to decide upon the modalities of patient management and to monitor their therapeutic results (Abramovici J, private communications 1983–1985 and Haimovici N private communications 1986).
