Thallium-201 for medical use

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

From 20th annual meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine; Miami Beach, Florida, USA (12 Jun 1973). The advantages of using /sup 201/Tl as an analog for K in diagnostic tracer studies are discussed. It is pointed out that the photons of /sup 201/Tl are detected with high efficiency and resolution in a lowenergy collimator gamma camera system. Tissue distribution studies in goats show that /sup 201/Tl concentrates in the renal medulla and would be of value in kidney function studies, has a differential uptake in melanomas, and concentrates in the myocardium, making it advantageous for myocardial visualization and function ... continued below
