Conclusion: The posterior medial cortices (PMC) are very important areas in episodic memory among patients with mild AD. Verbal memory is more closely related to the both sides of the PMC, while visual memory is more closely related to the right PMC.Dement Geriatr Cogn Disord Extra 2018;8:1 –11

This study aimed to see whether coffee habit could be associated with change in striatal dopamine active transporter (DAT)-single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging in PD. A total of 83 PD patients (71 current coffee drinkers and 12 never drinkers) underwent a DAT -SPECT study, using [123I]FP-CIT as radionuclide. Socio-demographic and clinical information as well as smoking habit was collected at the time of imaging acquisition. The Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale part III was used to evaluate disease severity. On multivariable analysis, chronic co ffee consumption was not associated with an...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewPheochromocytomas and paragangliomas (PPGLs) are uncommon catecholamine-producing neuroendocrine neoplasms that usually present with secondary hypertension. This review is to update the current knowledge about these neoplasms, the pathophysiology, genetic aspects and diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms based on scientific literature mostly within the past 3  years.Recent FindingsEighty to eighty-five percent of PPGLs arise from the adrenal medulla (pheochromocytomas; PCCs) and the remainder from the autonomic neural ganglia (paragangliomas; PGLs). Catecholamine excess causes chronic or parox...

This study aimed to evaluate the utility of a commercially available software package (HybridRecon, Hermes Medical Solutions AB) which incorporates full Monte Carlo collimator modelling. Analysis of image quality was performed on both phantom and clinical images in order to ultimately provide a recommendation of an optimum reconstruction for post-therapy90Y microsphere SPECT/CT imaging.A 3D-printed anthropomorphic liver phantom was filled with90Y with a sphere-to-background ratio of 4:1 and imaged on a GE Discovery 670 SPECT/CT camera. Datasets were reconstructed using ordered-subsets expectation maximization (OSEM) 1 &nda...

AbstractCalcific aortic valve disease (CAVD) can progress to symptomatic aortic stenosis in a subset of patients. The severity of aortic stenosis and the extent of valvular calcification can be evaluated readily by echocardiography, CT, and MRI using well-established imaging protocols. However, these techniques fail to address optimally other important aspects of CAVD, including the propensity for disease progression, risk of complications in asymptomatic patients, and the effect of therapeutic interventions on valvular biology. These gaps may be addressed by molecular imaging targeted at key biological processes such as i...

Conclusions1,4-Naphthoquinones retained necrosis avidity and [131I]naphthazarin (6) rapidly visualized necrotic myocardium. The necrosis avidity mechanism of [131I]naphthazarin (6) may be attributed to its binding with exposed DNA in necrotic tissues.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe use of quantitative analysis in single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET) has become an integral part of current clinical practice and plays a crucial role in the detection and risk stratification of coronary artery disease. Emerging technologies, new protocols, and new quantification methods have had a significant impact on the diagnostic performance and prognostic value of nuclear cardiology imaging while reducing the need for clinician oversight. In this review, we aim to describe recent advances in automation and quantitative analysis in nucle...
