Indium-111 Labelled Leucocyte Uptake in Aortitis Accepted for Publication 25 July 1994 Radio-isotope labelled leucocyte scintigraphy is an established technique for the localization of infection. It is also used in the diagnosis of inflammatory condi- tions such as inflammatory bowel disease  and sys- temic vasculitis .

However, after the Indium In 111 chloride is added, appropriate shielding of Indium In 111 ProstaScint ® (capromab pendetide) must be maintained. Care should be taken to minimize radiation exposure to patients and medical personnel, consistent with proper hospital and patient management procedures.
Indium-111 Labeled White Blood Cells Findings: The In-111-WBC scan shows accumulation of activity in the region of the retroperitoneal mass, thought to be related to the aortic aneurysm.

A 15% window at the 140-keV 99mTc peak and a 15% window at the 247-keV 111In photopeak are used if the 99mTc dose is in-jected on day 1 before 111In-leukocyte im-aging.
Before surgery an 111 In-labeled leukocyte scan was performed to exclude other sites of infection. The preparation contained mixed autologous leukocytes and small quantities of platelets and erythrocytes labeled wtih indium-111-oxine (Amersham).

The dose-limiting response is the number of rads delivered to the spleen. One reason why the indium scan may theoretically have a much higher resolution than a WBC scan is that a much higher dose of indium 111 label may be given because WBCs are sequestered in the spleen and immunoglobulins are not sequestered.
Indium 111 (111 In)–labeled white blood cell (WBC) scintigraphy is an imaging modality that is used in the diagnostic evaluation of occult infections when other imaging modalities are either contraindicated or uninformative. Labeled leukocytes migrate to and accumulate at sites of inflammation, which are then visualized on nuclear imaging.

Indium 111 platelet imaging for the detection of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary emboli was performed in 171 patients after abdominal and pelvic surgery. Fifteen patients were found to have inadequate circulating blood pools of indium 111 platelets, making the study nondiagnostic.
A 70-year-old man with a history of hypertension and diabetes mellitus was readmitted because of abdominal and back pain 2 weeks after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. A CT scan 7 days after readmission showed an enhancing infrarenal periaortic soft tissue mass. An in-111 …
