RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING Diagnostic scintigraphy involves simultaneous imaging of the distributions of pulmonary blood-flow and alveolar ventilation. The combined study is called a ventilation/perfusion ( V Q scan). The main clinical indication for this technique in the evaluation of pulmonary embolism. Perfusion scanning Perfusion lung imaging is performed by the intravenous injection of a radiotracer which is trapped in the lung on first pass. There are two available classes of tracer: first, microparticles of human protein labeled with technetium-99m (Tc-99m) which microembolize in the lung vascular bed; and, secondly, radioactive inert gases, which, because of their low aqueous solubility, rapidly enter alveolar gas following intravenous injection.
