Abstract

Abstract Gallium-67-citrate was administered to thirty-nine patients who had a variety of benign, malignant, and inflammatory lesions of the oral region. The gallium-67 scintigram was noted to be valuable in the diagnosis of maxillary carcinoma, parotid carcinoma, and malignant lymphoma. Clinically, it is possible to differentiate malignant tumors from benign ones with the aid of 67Ga scanning. It is difficult, however, to differentiate malignant tumors from inflammatory lesions. At present, it is difficult to detect the small malignant lesion by means of a 67Ga scintigram.
