Abstract

Fe-52 scintigraphy was used to confirm extramedullary hematopoiesis in a patient with beta-thalassemia and intrathoracic masses. Imaging was performed on a standard gamma camera with a high-energy collimator. Tc-99m labeled tin colloid and In-111 chloride scintigraphy failed to reveal uptake by the masses. The exclusion of malignancy obviated the need for invasive diagnostic measures.
