The Volume on Renal and Lung Scintigraphy


This two topics are just combined for convenience, and are obvious separate topics. The renal sections review the available radiopharmaceuticals, imaging technique and clinical indications. Currently less common uses like captopril renography and transplant imaging are covered as well.

In the lung section, we trace the development of the lung scan, the PIOPED study (with its effect on VQ knowledge as well as the frequent “miss-interpretations” of its findings, and we “build” the interpretative criteria (which all dates back to Dan Biello, MD: all criteria are in some form, a “modified Biello criteria, even the PIOPED I or II). Quantitative lung scans are reviewed as well.

This was the first volume I wrote: Intentionally choosing to start with these 2 topics that remain relatively stable (unlike the PET-CT or Endocrine sections which are rapidly evolving).
