Abstract

CT scanning and scintigraphy with 111Indium-oxide-labelled white blood cells were used to study 32 cases of intracerebral cystic lesions. The results and the criteria of positivity used to lower the false positive rate are discussed. A new criterion, designed to assess the time course of the scintiscan and so reduce still further the frequency of false positives is put forward.
