Part of the Developments in Nuclear Medicine book series (DNUM, volume 16)


Ever since the incidental findings that 67Ga accumulates in inflammatory processes as well as in tumours, nuclear medicine has been evaluating its potential application to the diagnosis of septic and sterile lesions. It met with a certain degree of success in such areas as inflammation of the pelvis, small and large bowel, vascular grafts and muscle. It also proved to be of value in fever of unknown origin, post-operative inflammations, kidney transplants, rhabdomyolysis and certain skeletal afflictions.
