Case Report 


SPECT/CT for the accurate localization of <sup>67</sup>Ga uptake in mycotic abdominal aortic aneurysm

Nada Almenieir, Hani Hassoun, Kent MacKenzie, Vilma Derbekyan.

Abstract
We report a case of mycotic abdominal aortic aneurysm where the use of hybrid imaging with gallium scan demonstrated increased uptake in the infected aneurysm and aided in differentiating physiological uptake in the bowel from pathological uptake.
