Title: Detection of intestinal obstruction by radionuclide scan: case report

Abstract

The value of /sup 99m/Technetium-pertechnetate abdomen scan has recently been established in the diagnosis of Meckel's diverticulum, intussusception, and inflamed appendix. The purpose of this paper is to report a case with small intestinal obstruction secondary to fibrous adhesions which resulted from a previous surgery, in whom a /sup 99m/Technetium-pertechnetate abdomen scan showed increased radionuclide concentration in the area of dilated loop of bowel proximal to the site of obstruction.
