A monograph that deals largely with radioiodinated rose bengal and colloidal radiogold liver scans seems out of date. Technetium-99 is generally preferred for this purpose. Even liver scans are being replaced by scintillation photographs. It is not surprising that this book contains nothing new; it is a brief and clearly written review of the literature of liver scans and other applications of isotopes to the study of hepatobiliary physiology and disease.
A discussion of the physiology of rose bengal is followed by an assessment of its use as a test of polygonal cell function and patency of the biliary tract.
