In light of the increased interest in small scale dosimetry, this paper presents a quantitative autoradiographic method for evaluation of heterogeneous activity distribution in tissues. This was studied in rat tissues after administration of 111In-chloride, -oxine, -tropolone, 111In-labeled homologous blood cells and 111In-anti-CEA-F(ab')2, using quantitative whole-body autoradiography. Quantification was performed utilizing an image analyzing system designed for whole-body autoradiographs. Very heterogeneous activity distribution was found in several tissues including the liver, spleen, kidneys, bone marrow, lymph nodes and testes. Notable was the high 111In uptake in organs characterized as rapidly proliferating, and known to have numerous transferrin receptors. In the gastrointestinal tract, all activity was associated with the intestinal walls. The heterogeneous tissue distribution shown in this investigation accentuates the necessity for performing detailed studies of the tissue distribution of radiopharmaceuticals. This is especially important for the radiation dosimetry of radionuclides emitting beta-particles or low energy electrons. We suggest whole-body autoradiography as an excellent implement to determine local activity concentrations in organs and tissues necessary for accurate absorbed dose calculations
