This report describes preliminary results using technetium-99m stannous phytate as a lymph-node imaging agent in animals. After the subcutaneous administration there is good visualization of the draining nodes, best obtained 2-4 hr from the time of injection. There is also visualization of the liver, spleen, kidneys, and bladder. This agent appears suitable for lymph-node imaging in areas where the extranodal concentration does not interfere.
