Technetium Tc 99m Bicisate is a Radioactive Diagnostic Agent indicated as an adjunct to conventional computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the localization of stroke in patients in whom stroke has already been diagnosed. Technetium Tc 99m Bicisate is a lipophilic complex with high first-pass extraction fraction and deposition and retention in the brain in proportion to cerebral blood flow. Its radionuclide emissions permit external imaging of the cerebral distribution of the agent, thus allowing the detection of altered regional cerebral perfusion. The retention in the brain of technetium Tc 99m Bicisate results from in vivo metabolism (de-esterification) of the primary complex to polar, less diffusable compounds Technetium Tc-99m Bicisate is metabolized by endogenous enzymes to the mono- and di-acids of Technetium Tc-99m Bicisate that can be detected in blood and urine. Technetium Tc-99m Bicisate is excreted primarily through the kidneys. Within two hours, 50% of the injected dose is excreted and by 24 hours, 74% is found in urine.   NCATS
