Abstract

Following single-lung transplantation (SLT), there is significant redistribution of flow preferentially to the transplanted lung. Altered lung perfusion leads to unusual results when performing pulmonary scintigraphy, which could result in interpretation errors. We present pulmonary scintigraphy images from a 67-year-old female patient with history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease that were obtained before SLT, 10 days after SLT, and 3 months after SLT.
