By Gerald S. And A. Eric Jones Johnston

In 1970, less 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 research was once 67-Gallium (67-Ga) administered because the citrate. the thing of the examine used to be to de­ termine the usefulness of 67-Ga within the analysis and therapy of sufferers with quite a few malignancies. investment for the undertaking was once granted by way of the U. S. Atomic strength fee and the nationwide melanoma Institute, nationwide Institutes of overall healthiness (NIH). The Nuclear drugs division of the scientific heart, NIH, agreed to aid ORAU with features of this research, fairly with 67-Ga scin­ tigraphy of sufferers with lymphoma and Hodgkin's disorder. Pre­ liminary experiences from the ORAU learn are in press. considering the fact that April 1971, 67-Ga scintigraphy has received expanding use within the learn of melanoma sufferers on the medical middle, NIH, the place good over one thousand such sufferers were tested through this technique. This monograph was once written to provide chosen examples from this workforce of a number of malignancies visible during this 28-month interval. No test has been made to correlate this total adventure statistically. particularly, this presentation is to assist familiarize the practitioner of Nuclear medication with the big variety of usefulness for 67-Ga scintigraphy whereas making him conscious of the difference in test visual appeal and watchful of the various pitfalls of 67-Ga experiment interpretation. Permission to take advantage of those sufferer reports and x-rays was once generously granted by way of Dr. Paul P.

Location of major lymph node groups in a 25-year-old woman with stage III Hodgkin's disease. Lymph node groups are labelled on the anterior scan (A) and can be compared with their appearance on the posterior view (B). The patient had palpable adenopathy in the right and left cervical chains, the right supraclavicular, right axillary and right inguinal nodes. She had definite radiologic evidence of tumor in the anterior mediastinum, the paraaortic nodes, and bilateral iliac nodes. CHAPTER 4 Bone Tumors Robert S.

There is increased localization in the distal third of the forearm on the left. Biopsy revealed a fibrosarcoma of the left ulna. Activity proximal to lesion is 67-Ga injection site. 46 CHAPTER 4 Fig. 4-11. Twenty-one-year-old man with Ewing's sarcoma of the left proximal femur. Anterior and posterior whole body scans with 67-Ga reveal two areas of increased uptake: in the left anterior iliac crest and in the left posterior proximal femur. The iliac crest activity is secondary to a previous excision of bone from that area for use as a bone pack.

4-4A. This patient was a 12-year-old girl with a Ewing's sarcoma of the right ischium. The anterior whole body 67-Ga scan shows a large accumulation of nuclide in the pelvis. 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. 67-Ga scanning in this patient revealed a greater extent of involvement by tumor than was initially expected from the bone scan alone.
