Tc-99m–Labeled RBC Scintigraphy and Splenic HemangiomaWijaya, Johan, M.B.B.S., F.R.A.C.P.; Kapoor, Rony, M.B.B.S.; Roach, Paul, M.B.B.S., F.R.A.C.P.Clinical Nuclear Medicine: December 2001 - Volume 26 - Issue 12 - p 1022-1023 Original Articles Buy Abstract Author InformationAuthors Purpose The aim of this study was to assess the diagnostic value of RBC scintigraphy in the evaluation of possible splenic hemangioma. Materials and Methods RBC scintigraphy was performed on a patient with an incidental finding of a splenic mass on computed tomographic scanning. Early and delayed planar and SPECT images were obtained. Results Delayed images revealed blood pooling of the splenic mass. This finding is similar to the characteristics seen in RBC scintigraphy for hepatic hemangioma. Conclusion RBC scintigraphy may be useful in the evaluation of possible splenic hemangioma.
