Clin Nucl Med. 1992 Oct;17(10):789-90. doi: 10.1097/00003072-199210000-00004.


Tc-99m RBC scintigraphy is known to be useful for the evaluation of gastrointestinal bleeding. The authors describe a patient with a posttraumatic peritoneal tap in whom Tc-99m RBC imaging showed bleeding into the gastrointestinal wall and into the ascitic fluid.
