Gravity-aided Meckel's scan

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Increased uptake in the right lower quadrant was noted in a Tc-99m pertechnetate study of a 21-year-old man experiencing recent painless gastrointestinal bleeding. A postvoid view was not helpful in differentiating ureteral retention vs bladder diverticulum from Meckel's diverticulum. An image was obtained in the decubitus position, which separated the focus of activity from the bladder. The patient, an athletic man with an interest in yoga, offered to do a three-point head stand. This further separated the focus of activity from the bladder.
