Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We conclude that 111In chloride scanning is potentially useful in the workup of the febrile patient in whom a localized inflammatory process is suspected. In spite of the reported reduced target to non target ratio compared to 67Ga citrate, it may be especially helpful in subdiaphragmatic lesions in patients in whom bowel cleansing is difficult and in areas where false positive gallium imaging is common. The increased uptake around a transplanted kidney may be due to reticuloendothelial hyperplasia and does not indicate impaired renal function or renal rejection.
