Normal Pattern of Distribution of mIBG in Children with a History of Cancer

  • Judy S. E. Moyes

The normal distribution of mIBG which will be described relates to mIBG which has been radio-labelled with 123I or 131I. The occasions when there is an apparent difference in the sites of distribution between the two isotopes will be described separately.
