Abstract

Pulmonary calcification can be detected easily using Tc-99m phosphate compounds. Lung uptake of Tc-99m bone imaging agents was observed in two patients after liver transplantation. Transient hypercalcemia due to calcium infusion during hepatic transplantation may be responsible for the pulmonary calcification.
