Abstract

Early, accurate diagnosis of sulphrenic abscess is crucial to reducing its mortality rate, which has been reported to be 40-60%. Only a few articles on the clinical usefulness of combined liver-lung imaging in the detection of pathologic lesions between the liver and the hemidiaphragm have been published, and there is even less information in the literature on the left hemidiaphragm. This study reviews our experience in 84 patients with combined organ scintillation imaging for the diagnosis of left and right subphrenic and perihepatic abscesses.
