Abstract

Because the results with cobalt 57 bleomycin (57Co bleo) as a tumour seeking agent in patients with pulmonary tumours were promising, a prospective study was carried out to test the sensitivity and selectivity of this technique for metastases in lung hila and mediastinum in a group of patients with bronchial cancer. The sensitivity of 57Co bleo scintigraphy appeared to be higher than that of routine radiological investigations and mediastinoscopy. For this reason it is suggested that 57Co bleo scintigraphy can be used as a method to select patients for mediastinoscopy.
