Comparison of technetium 99m labeled hmpao labelled leukocytes and technetium 99m labeled nanocolloid in osteomyelitis


, : Comparison of technetium 99m labeled hmpao labelled leukocytes and technetium 99m labeled nanocolloid in osteomyelitis. Nuklearmedizin 27(2): 63-65

Six patients with proven or suspected osteomyelitis were studied with both 99mTc-HMPAO-labelled leukocytes and 99mTc-nanocolloid. In all cases the findings of both procedures were in good agreement. In 3 patients there was markedly increased accumulation of labelled cells and of colloid, respectively. Two patients showed slightly increased accumulation of both agents and in one patient the finding was (correctly) negative. Further studies are necessary to determine whether or not colloid scintigraphy might replace the time-consuming leukocyte scintigraphy.
