dc.description.abstractTwo cases of chronic renal failure showing very interesting technetium-99m-pyrophosphate bone scans are presented. In both cases striking uptake of activity was shown in the left ventricle of the heart, the mucosa of the stomach and in both lungs. This picture was attributed to metastatic calcification in these organs. Cases of metastatic calcification demonstrated with bone-seeking agents have been presented previously, but have mainly shown intense uptake of activity in the lungs and in a few cases, and to a lesser degree, in the stomach. However, we believe that our cases are unique in showing especially the left ventricle of the heart as well as the mucosa of the stomach with exceptional clarity.
