Abstract

To assess the significance of diffuse cardiac activity (DCA) seen on In-111 labeled leukocyte scans, we reviewed 87 studies performed over the last 4 years. Inflammatory cardiac conditions were seen as frequently in patients with DCA (15%) as those without (7%, P=0.3). There was a higher ratio of RBC:WBC in the final WBC preparation in the false-positive DCA group than the true positive DCA and no DCA groups. False-positive studies showing DCA are most likely due to residual blood pool activity.
