Some differences in the uptake of three radiopharmaceuticals by a metastatic lesion from primary adenocarcinoma of the rectum are presented. A large tumor on the abdominal wall metastasized from rectal cancer picked up 99Tc(m) polyphosphate and 87Sr citrate but not 67Ga citrate. This tumor uptake of Tc polyphosphate and strontium was not attributable to increased tumor vascularity as evidenced from negative 113In transferrin scan.
