Two cases of Bleeding Meckel's Diverticulum Using (99m)Technetium-Pertechnetate Scanning are presented. (99m)TC-pertechnetate was used in the diagnosis of Meckel's Diverticulum by Jewette et al in 1970 for the first time. The affinity of this isotope for the parietal cell of the gastric mucosa makes it ideal for delincating ectopic gastric tissue. It noninvasiveness can be used in early screening test of occult gastrointestinal bleeding in pediatric age group.
