Findings of the radioisotope color scan of the hepatic metastases

Journal Article:

Abstract

Recently, the space occupying lesions in the liver were well established and recognized by radioisotope color scan. In addition, the lesions were easily localized in the supine and the right lateral projections. The findings of hepatoma, abscess and cyst were seen as filling defects which were similar to the findings of the hepatic metastases. In this study, we analysis of 70 cases of the hepatic metastases, 80 cases of the hepatoma and 100 cases of the liver abscess which were obtained by radiogold color scan and confirmed by a needle biopsy or laparotomy. Summary of analysis as follows: 1. Primary site in 70 cases of hepatic metastases. Stomach 30 cases (42.8%) Biliary Tract 10 cases (12.3%) Colon 8 cases (11.4%) Lung 6 cases (8.5%) Ovary 6 cases (8.5%) Pancreas 3 case (4.3%) Thyroid 2 cases (3.5%) Breast 2 cases (3.5%) Kidney, Cervix, Esophagus 1 case. 2. Hepatomegaly were seen in 22 cases (32%) of the hepatic metastases and relatively small in percentage compare with the hepatoma and abscess. 3. Single space occupying lesion were demonstrated in 26 cases (35.7%) of the hepatic metastases, 55 cases (70.2%) of the hepatoma and 72 cases (72%) of the abscess. Two space occupying lesion  More>>

Single space occupying lesion were demonstrated in 26 cases (35.7%) of the hepatic metastases, 55 cases (70.2%) of the hepatoma and 72 cases (72%) of the abscess. Two space occupying lesion were in the scan in 10 cases (12.3%) of the hepatic metastases, 8 cases (9.5%) of the hepatoma and 10 cases (10%) of the abscess. Multiple space occupying lesions were scan in 15 cases (21.4%) of the hepatic metastases, 14 cases (17.5%) of the hepatoma and 13 cases (13%) of the abscess. Compare with the hepatoma and abscess, the hepatic metastases tend to more than one space occupying lesions. 4. The appearance and location of the metastatic lesions showed somewhat significant. In 26 of 30 cases (81.6%) of the stomach carcinoma revealed the lesions mostly located in the porta hepatis and right lower lobe of the liver. Multiple and discrete metastatic lesions were usually from the colon carcinoma.}
