A newly developed thrombus imaging agent, 67Ga-DFO-DAS-fibrinogen (67Ga-fibrinogen), was used for 22 studies in 20 cases of suspected deep venous thrombosis. Increased accumulation of 67Ga-fibrinogen in venous thrombi was depicted at 48 h after injection in 10 of the 15 cases (10 of 17 studies) who showed abnormal findings in radionuclide venography. A hot spot in the lung emboli was visualized in two cases. Seven of the eight cases having anticoagulant therapy showed increased 67Ga-fibrinogen uptake, while follow-up 67Ga-fibrinogen scintigraphy after the administration of heparin and urokinase did not reveal an abnormal hot spot in one case. 67Ga-fibrinogen can be made available simply by adding 67Ga solution to a vial containing fibrinogen-DAS-DFO conjugate. In conclusion, 67Ga-fibrinogen is considered to be a promising agent for detecting active venous thrombi and to assess the effect of anticoagulant therapy.
