TECHNETIUM METABOLISM IN SHEEP
The metabolism of 95m-Tc as the pertechnetate was studied in a ruminant animal. The metabolism of the pertechnetate injected intravenously in sheep is similar to the metabolism of the pertechnetate after an intravenous injection or an oral dose in man. An oral administration of the pertechnetate in sheep demonstrated that the microflora of the rumen reduce the absorption of technetium in the ruminant animal.
