Hepatic perfusion patients were evaluated in five patients receiving hepatic artery infusion chemotherapy. All patients underwent 99mTc macroaggregated albumin (99mTc-MAA) scintigraphy and CT with EOE-13. In each case, the diagnostic agent was administered through the infusion catheter at 0.66 ml/min. Hepatic perfusion patterns were identified with both imaging methods, but CT with EOE-13 yielded more precise anatomic detail and was unique in demonstrating the perfusion status of each hepatic metastasis. Further evaluation of EOE-13 for this purpose is warranted.
