On decay, the major emissions are characteristic x-rays of the daughter product, mercury-201 ( 201 Hg), with an energy range of 69 to 81 keV. These are the primary photons used in myocardial imaging.

The patient is instructed to return in 3-4 hours for the rest study @ Rest study: 1. 3-4 hours following the initial injection, an additional dose of thallium is injected at rest, ie. reinjection technique. 2. 5 minutes after the resting injection of thallium, redistribution/rest SPECT

Tl-201 is a widely used radioisotope for medical imaging. The radioactive half-life of Tl-201 is 73.1h, however, reported periods of extended personal radiation have been seen as far out as 61 days post-administration. Conclusion: This case describes an anxious, but otherwise asymptomatic patient presenting to the ED with detection of low-level ...Thallium-201 (Tl-201) scintigraphy is useful in evaluating not only ischemic heart disease 1, 2 but also a variety of tumors (head, neck, bone, soft tissue, and lung). 3-6 In benign tumors, Tl-201 shows either no or reduced accumulation on the delayed scan. Malignant tumors accumulated Tl-201 on both the early and delayed scans. 3, 4, 7, 8 In malignant tumors, the …

Thallium-201 SPECT detected 40 of these 48 (83%) stenosed grafts. The sensitivity of thallium-201 SPECT for detecting any graft stenosis was higher than that of the exercise electrocardiogram in patients with typical recurrent angina (84% vs 24%, p < 0.0001), as well as in those with atypical symptoms (70% vs 50%, p = 0.0039)...Molecular Weight. 200.9708. Date s. Modify. . Create. . Thallium-201 is the radioactive isotope of thallium with relative atomic mass 200.9708 and half-life of 72.912 hours. Thallium Tl-201 is under investigation in clinical trial NCT02697760 (The CZT Dynamic Myocardial Perfusion Imaging).

Additionally, Thallium-201 may be used in conjunction with exercise stress testing as an adjunct in the diagnosis of ischemic heart disease (atherosclerotic coronary artery disease) and is also indicated for the localization of sites of parathyroid hyperactivity in patients with elevated serum calcium and parathyroid hormone levels...• Tl-201 (intravenous injection) is used in conjunction with maximum exercise stress testing for myocardial imaging. • Thallous Chloride (Tl-201) clears rapidly from the blood with maximum concentration by normal myocardium within about 10 minutes; other organs include the thyroid, liver, kidneys, and stomach.

This study examined the prognosis of 449 patients with a mean age of 65 years using exercise thallium-201 imaging. At a follow-up of 25 months, 45 patients underwent coronary artery revascularization, 8 died of cardiac causes and 10 had nonfatal acute myocardial infarctions (AMIs). Thus the total of patients with "hard" events was 18...Thallium Stress Test (Thallium 201 Exercise Test) This test is the same as a treadmill exercise test. This test checks the function of the heart during and after physical activity. In addition, an IV will be started and, at the peak of exercise, the patient will be injected with a mild isotope. The patient will then be escorted to the scanning ...

The mean +2 s.d. of ratios in...Summary. Information in this record refers to the use of thallous chloride Tl 201 as a diagnostic agent. Most experts recommend a period of breastfeeding interruption after maternal thallous chloride Tl 201, although some disagreement exists on the exact duration, probably because of the long physical half-life of the radioisotope and variable ...
