Abstract

The success of the positron scanning technique in the localization of brain tumors has suggested its application to other organs. Zinc-62 is used in an attempt to delineate the pancreas and copper-64 in various forms is used to delineate the liver. The problem of visualizing the pancreas is particularly difficult because of its small size and the presence of large organs in the vicinity which concentrate zinc. Several approaches to this problem are discussed. Copper-64 in simple ionic form and in the form of copper versenate concentrate to a marked degree in the liver. Positron scans of the liver would seem to offer considerable promise for successful 'diagnosis of various liver disorders. Data is presented on the distribution of several isotopes and compounds in animals.

Il est particulieremen t difficile de rendre visible le pancreas en raison de sa petite taille et de la presence d'organes voisins de grandes dimensions, qui concentrent le zinc. Les auteurs etudient plusieurs procedes par lesquels on s'est efforce de resoudre ce probleme. Le cuivre-64 sous forme ionique simple et sous forme de sel de l'acide ethylene-diamino-tetra-acetique se ooncentre fortement dans le foie. L'exploration du foie a l'aide des positrons parait devoir faciliter considerablemen t le diagnostic de differents troubles hepatiques. Les auteurs donnent des indications sur la repartition de plusieurs isotopes et composes chez des animaux. (author) [Spanish] El exito de la tecnica de exploracion mediante positrones en la localization de tumores cerebrales aconseja su aplicacion a otros organos. El zinc-62 y el cobre-64 en diferentes formas se utilizan para determinar el contorno del pancreas y del higado, respectivamente. Es singularmente dificil el problema de lograr una representacion visual del pancreas dado su reducido tamano y la presencia en su proximidad de organos de grandes dimensiones en los que el zinc se concentra. Los autores examinan diferentes procedimientos para abordar este problema. El cobre-64 en forma ionica sencilla y en forma de sal del acido etilendiaminotetra-acetico se concentra notablemente en el higado. Las exploraciones de ese organo mediante positrones parecen facilitar de modo considerable el diagnostico correcto de diferentes trastornos hepaticos. Los autores presentan datos sobre la distribucion de diferentes isotopos y compuestos en organismos animales.
