Estimation of regional lung function in interstitial pulmonary disease using Technegas and Tc99m-macroaggregated albumin single-photon emission tomography

First Author: Sasaki, Y, Last Author: Narita, N

This study highlight that quantitative V/Q SPECT (Technegas + 99m-Tc-MAA) is considered to be an effective means to evaluate the progression and pathology of interstitial pulmonary disease and to detect early impairment of lung function.
