Abstract

Lung scanning with macroaggregated albumin 131I was carried out in 128 patients. The technique appears to be without hazard. It is particularly useful in the detection of pulmonary embolism, but the pattern is non-specific and changes occur in other cardio-respiratory diseases. On the basis of these observations pulmonary scanning is regarded as a useful adjunct in the study of pulmonary embolism, but it cannot serve as a specific diagnostic procedure since similar patterns of scan may be found in many conditions.
