Gallium 67 is a photon-emitting radiotracer which is used in the form of various salts like citrate and nitrate. Once administered, imaging may consist of planar (2 dimensional), SPECT, and SPECT/CT acquisitions. Once injected it binds to plasma proteins (especially transferrin), and has a predilection to sites of inflammation.
