Conclusions The PLS agreement was sensitive to the 90Y lung background correction ROI, potentially explaining a previously published controversy. The mean activity and absorbed dose agreement for the metastatic lesions was poorer than the healthy liver volumes studied here.
The present study provides actual data with regard to the prevalence of myocardial ischemia among patients under contemporary cardiovascular prevention strategies undergoing peripheral vascular interventions. We included a total of 200 consecutive patients who underwent gated single-photon emission computed tomography myocardial perfusion study between January 2012 and January 2014 as preoperative evaluation for peripheral vascular interventions at our institution. The baseline medical treatment comprised aspirin (81%), statins (79%), and β-blockers (54%). Thirty-two (16%) patients underwent carotid revascularization;...
Authors: Markovic SN, Galli F, Suman VJ, Nevala WK, Paulsen AM, Hung JC, Gansen DN, Erickson LA, Marchetti P, Wiseman GA, Signore A Abstract Early in the course of immunotherapy there is frequently a transient enlargement of tumor masses (pseudo-progression) due to tumor infiltration by TILs. Current clinical imaging modalities are not able to distinguished pseudo-progression from true tumor progression. Thus, patients often remain on treatment 4-8 weeks longer to confirm disease progression. Nuclear medicine offers the possibility to image immune cells and potentially discriminate pseudo-progression and progressio...
ConclusionsMyocardial glucose utilization was influenced by substrates and medications, including statins and DPP4i. MRGlu could discriminate between viable and non-viable myocardium, and MRGlu in transmural match and reverse mismatch may be prognostic predictors of cardiovascular death in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy.
Since its description in 1885 in the Études cliniques sur l'hystéro-épilepsie ou grand hystérie by Raul Richer, the arc de cercle, or circular arc (figure 1A), has become synonymous of psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) and automatically interpreted as such by physicians. The development of extracranial and intracranial EEG recording has not confirmed the clinical importance of the arc de cercle.

Authors: Mavriopoulou E, Zampakis P, Smpiliri E, Spyridonidis T, Rapti E, Haberkorn U, Makatsoris T, Apostolopoulos DJ Abstract OBJECTIVE: Single photon emission tomography/computed tomography (SPET/CT) is usually recommended after ambiguous whole body bone scan (WBS) findings. We investigated the value of routine 2-field ("near" whole-body) SPET/CT application in breast cancer (BC) patients. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: In this prospective study planar WBS and 2-field SPET/CT was performed in 257 consecutive BC patients referred for a bone scan. Whole body scan and SPET/CT were interpreted separately. Addit...
CONCLUSION: Our findings suggested that 99mTc WBS is a useful imaging modality in detecting remnant thyroid tissue, nodal and distant metastases before 131I therapy. The additional SPET/CT scan when needed in 18 cases supported the 99mTc WBS diagnosis. PMID: 30089313 [PubMed - in process]
