Scintigraphic visualization of human malignant melanoma with N-isopropyl-P-[I-123] iodoamphetamine

Clin Nucl Med. 1985 Jun;10(6):415-7. doi: 10.1097/00003072-198506000-00008.


Marked accumulation of I-123 IMP was noted in a patient with malignant melanoma. This preliminary finding suggests the potential role of I-123 IMP for detection and evaluation of the disease.
