Summary

Studies are described on the practical use of radioiodinated Rose Bengal and scintiphotography with the gamma-camera in the differential diagnosis of jaundice. The main scintiphotographic aspects of the various types of jaundice are discussed with special reference to the possibility of making a diagnosis. Special attention is paid to the investigation of ‘major cholestasis’ cases and particularly the possibility of differentiating intra-hepatic and extra-hepatic jaundice.
