G.I.T. Protein leak Study is for detection and localization of protein leakage from the blood stream into the intestine.The site of active protein leak is identified by leak of 99mTc-labeled HSA within the bowel lumen. Chronic protein leak bleed can be by intestinal lymphangectasia. ❰❰ PATIENTS INSTRUCTIONS •
