Technetium Tc99m Bicisate is eliminated primarily by renal excretion.
Lantheus imaging products include the echocardiography contrast agent DEFINITY[R] Vial for (Perflutren Lipid Microsphere) Injectable Suspension, an ultrasound contrast agent for use in patients with suboptimal echocardiograms to opacify the left ventricular chamber and to improve the delineation of the left ventricular endocardial border, ABLAVAR([R]) (gadofosveset trisodium), a first-in-class magnetic resonance agent indicated for the evaluation of aortoiliac occlusive disease in adults with known or suspected peripheral vascular disease, TechneLite([R])(Technetium Tc99m Generator), Cardiolite([R]) (Kit for the Preparation of Technetium Tc99m Sestamibi for Injection), and Thallium 201 (Thallous Chloride Tl 201 Injection).
Following treatment of the nasal cavity with the technetium, subjects were asked to swallow a small amount of water to flush any excess technetium from the posterior oronasal pharynx.
The results of the technetium trial are shown in the table.
Moreover, the administration of a single dose of decongestant did not improve the deposition of the technetium.
Cardiolite([R]) (Kit for the Preparation of Technetium Tc99m Sestamibi for Injection) is one of the world's most widely-used cardiac imaging agents and the only technetium labeled myocardial perfusion agent that has been used to image more than 40 million patients.
Cardiolite([R]) is the first technetium labeled myocardial perfusion tracer to provide physicians with prognostic information that can be helpful in making patient management decisions.
The Kit for the Preparation of Technetium Tc-99 Mebrofenin is the second agent in the CIS-US product line approved with an indication for hepatobiliary imaging.
Fiore, VP Regulatory Affair and Quality Assurance, stated, "We are pleased to receive approval of our first ANDA filing and the first generic approval for a Kit for the Preparation of Technetium Tc-99 Mebrofenin.
In 2000, USEC discovered that 9,550 MT of that inventory may have contained elevated levels of technetium
, making it out-of-specification according to standards for uranium hexafluoride for enrichment as set by the American Society for Testing and Materials.
