Centre for Equine Studies, Animal Health Trust, Newmarket, UK. The image shows the distribution of radiolabelled fluticasone propionate administered at a dose of 3.5 ug/kg bodyweight to an unsedated 250kg pony from a metered dose inhaler (MDI; 250ug per actuation) using the Equine Haler. The red line shows the approximate lung border as determined subsequently using Tc-MAA. The aerosol penetrates to the lung periphery and the pattern of deposition of the labelled fluticasone propionate also approximates that expected for ventilation using radioactive krypton gas.
