Tc-99m-Sn colloid dynamic and static scintigraphic evaluation of patients with portal hypertension

Journal Article:

Abstract

Dynamic scintigraphy of the liver and spleen was performed by injecting Tc-99m-Sl colloid as a bolus in 15 normal controls and 17 patients presenting with portal hypertension. Using a computer, the hepatic and splenic time-activity curves were analyzed. In addition to the Ratio of Area, the Ratio of Integral and Slope of Integral for liver to spleen were also calculated. The Ratio of the Area (L/S) was significantly different in the normal and portal hypertensives (p < 0.001). The Ratios of the Integral and the slope of the Integral were not only significantly different in the normals and portal hypertensives (p < 0.001) but were also significantly different in the cirrhotic and the non-cirrhotic group of portal hypertensives (p < 0.001). In the routine study of liver scintigraphy in cases of portal hypertension, by adding the above mentioned method, the increased information of uptake dynamics seems to be useful for differentiating the cirrhotic and non-cirrhotic groups of portal hypertension.
