Abstract

In this study a radiocolloid has been prepared for use in the detection of malignant tumors by scintigraphy. The radiocolloid is of lower toxicity than those proposed previously. Its ability to enable the detection of malignant tumors has been confirmed by its application to rabbit and human thyroids. Electron microscopic studies have also been performed to characterize Sb2S3 particles in the solution and to elucidate their interaction with a protective colloid.
