The Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) market is expected to witness tremendous growth owing to the new 99mtc
labelled agents for visualizing biologically significant events, and integration of X-ray tomography (CT) In SPECT.

"Iran now exports technetium generator (or colloquially a technetium cow or moly cow, a device used to extract the metastable isotope 99mTc
of technetium from a source of decaying molybdenum-99) to many countries and if we can produce molybdenum, we will become fully self-sufficient in this area and of course, today we have had many successes in radio medicine production technology," Saqari said.
The MIBI (MIBI- 99mTc
, methoxyisobutylisonitrite, MIBI or sestamibi) has a wide availability rich photon flux, which improves the detection of abnormal uptake by gamma probe, these physical properties make this radiotracer the choice for radioguided surgery, compared to other as thallium-201 (2).
Bone scintigraphy: The patients received an intravenous injection of 540-740 MBq Technetium-99m (99mTc
) methylene diphosphonate.
Some authors have reported nuclear medicine imaging with 99mTc
red blood scintigraphy as useful tool for diagnosis.
A comparative study of pre-operative imaging methods in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism: ultrasonography, 99mTc

We here report an NSLA of the parotid gland with positive technetium-99m (99mTc

These include Nanocolloids4,7 (human albumin colloids), Sulfur colloids5 and Antimony-sulfur colloids6, all labeled with 99mTc
. Likewise, different injection techniques are used.
