We investigated and compared finding on combined99mTcpertechnetate-201Tl with those 99mTc pertechnetate-67Ga scintiscans to elucidate the advantages of 201Tl in detecting various salivary glands disorders.
We studied 23 patients: 6 had sialadenitis , 12 had benign tumors and 5 had malignant tumors. All but four patients had undergone 99mTc (before and lemon stimulation), 201Tl ( early and delay ) and 67Ga imaging.
