Concentration of 99mTechnetium polyphosphate in fibrothorax following pneumonectomy.
Following the injection of 99mTechnetium-polyphosphate for bone scanning, a diffuse accumulation of radioactivity in post-pneumonectomy fibrothorax was demonstrated in 3 patients. This substantiates the nonspecificity of the localization of 99mTc-phosphorus compounds, and underlines the need for close clinical correlation in the accurate interpretation of such scans.
