Scintigraphic localization of gastrointestinal protein loss has been recently reported. A noninvasive method for the localization of protein loss in the gut using Tc-99m labeled albumin seems encouraging and is described here. In six patients studied for protein-losing enteropathy, scintigraphic results of four were positive.
