Using colloidal 198Au, radioisotope liver scans were performed on 410 patients over a period of 1 year. This report includes only those 116 cases in which a hepatic diagnosis was proven by biopsy, operation, or autopsy. In each case, the liver scan was interpreted prior to the establishment of a pathologic diagnosis.
