Aim: This clinical study was planned to assess pulmonary microvascular permeability in patients with Syndrome X (SX) by using a functional imaging tool, technetium-99m-diethyltriaminepentaaceticacid (Tc-99m-DTPA) lung clearance scintigraphy, and the pulmonary functions test, which includes diffusion capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide (DLCO).
