CASTELO-BRANCO, Paulo S.M. et al. The use of 99mTc-Thymine to identify metastatic disease in dogs presenting the cutaneous form of canine transmissible venereal tumor. Pesq. Vet. Bras. [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.8, pp.367-370. ISSN 0100-736X.

The venereal canine transmissible tumor (VCTT) is described in literature as a rare metastatic tumor. However accurate methods for verification of this affirmative are not available in the veterinary medicine routine. In this study, we evaluated the dissemination from VCTT with cutaneous presentation using the 99mTc-Thymine scintigraphy. The labelled thymine was uptaken by the three cases of VCTT. 99mTc-Thymine is a promising imaging technique for non-invasive veterinarian evaluation of tumoral dissemination degree decurrent from the VCTT cases.

Keywords : Canine; 99mTc-Thymine; tumor.
