EOE-13 was infused directly into the hepatic artery through a surgically implanted hepatic artery infusion pump in a patient with liver metastases. A computed tomographic scan obtained after EOE-13 infusion accurately showed the perfusion pattern of the implanted catheter. It also demonstrated the hepatic metastases more clearly than scintigraphy with 99mTc-macroaggregated albumin. EOE-13 may prove useful for the evaluation of hepatic perfusion patterns in patients receiving hepatic artery infusion chemotherapy.
