a Representative image of whole-body scintigraphy showing the biodistribution of 99mTc-labeled BMDMCs 2 h after instillation in one patient; stem cells are seen mainly in the lungs. b There is also uptake in the mouth and stomach, due to minor swallowing during instillation. RL, right lung; LL, left lung; BMDMCs, bone marrow–derived mononuclear cells; 99mTc-BMDMCs, 99mTc-labeled bone marrow–derived mononuclear cells
