In order to check a new rebreathing unit for ventilation investigations of the lungs with radioactive gases, a 133Xe lung ventilation study was performed in a 56-year old healthy volunteer. The contamination check on the following day triggered a radiation warning caused by the retained xenon activity in the body. The whole-body scan performed 18 h after the inhalation showed clearly a faint delineation of the xenon activity, corresponding to the subcutaneous fatty tissue of the individual studied.
