Gallium 67 citrate whole body scintigraphy was incorporated into the evaluation of 125 patients with primary and metastatic breast carcinoma.

Since the extent of tumor involvement is a significant prognostic factor, the gallium scan merits consideration for the detection of mediastinal metastases.
