Overview

Total body SAP component scintigraphy may be used in the workup and follow-up of patients with amyloid deposition. This method has been observed to have high sensitivity (90%) and requires a low radioactive dose which makes it a safe and effective method. The radiolabeled SAP binds to aa amyloid and localizes its deposition semi-quantitatively.
