Abstract: ABSTRACT PURPOSE:To evaluate whether scintigraphy with technetium-99m-labeled ceftizoxime ( Tc-CFT to infected sternums was greater than to their non-infected counterparts. Mean counts of radioactivity in bacteria-infected sternal regions (SB and SWB) were significantly higher (p = 0.0007) than those of the respective controls (S and SW). CONCLUSION:Scintigraphy with technetium-99m-labeled ceftizoxime is a method that can potentially detect infection post sternotomy and differentiate from aseptic inflammation…
