Detection of active bleeding from ruptured aortic aneurysm by emergency radionuclide angiography

Clin Nucl Med. 1978 Jul;3(7):276-7. doi: 10.1097/00003072-197807000-00003.


Radionuclide angiography of the abdominal aorta provides hemodynamic information of the kidneys, aorta and aneurysm as well as the location and extent of aneurysm. Visualization of early abnormal activity in the pelvic region simultaneously with iliac artery visualization is thought to be a specific finding of active bleeding from a ruptured aneurysm of the abdominal aorta.
