Localization of hemorrhage in a recurrent hemothorax using Tc-99m-sulfur colloid

Clin Nucl Med. 1981 May;6(5):196-8. doi: 10.1097/00003072-198105000-00002.

Abstract

Tc99m-sulfur colloid scintigraphy has proven clinically useful in identifying gastrointestinal hemorrhages. The authors describe a patient with recurrent hemothorax under oral anticoagulation therapy in which Tc-99m-sulfur colloid imaging was used to determine the site of bleeding.
