Abstract

Radionuclide venography has proved to be a tedious procedure because of the need for multiple imaging set ups with coordinated, repeated injections of radionuclide. The use of a moving bed gamma camera has shortened the procedure. This method enables the entire sapheno femoral iliac caval system to be visualized in continuity on a single film. The moving table top system also adequately imaged the suspected areas of thrombi or endothelial damage on the post exercise study on a single film.
