Abstract

Measurement of pulmonary interstitial fluid may be useful in clinical medicine for early diagnosis or measurement of interstitial and/or alveolar pulmonary edema. A modification of the double dilution method of CHINARD and GORESKY is proposed. Compared to previous methods, this technique, using two isotopes gamma emitters, is rapid, simple, reproductible and may be repeated. The values obtained in normal subjects at rest 3.5 +/- 0.5 ml/kg, are comparable with those of other authors. They increase considerably in cases of fluid load.
