Title: Non-invasive nuclear detection of choroidal melanoma

Abstract

The biodistribution of over 30 radiopharmaceuticals thought to be tumor-seeking agents were studied using hamsters and mice. Several radiopharmaceuticals were found to be appropriate as melanoma localizing agents. Results with modified dual pinhole collimator and a pigment affinic agent (iodine-123 labeled quinoline) and a non-specific tumor seeking agent (gallium-67 citrate) are also reported.
