AbstractBackgroundWe evaluated the warranty period of a normal stress myocardial perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (MPS) in hypertensive patients.Methods and ResultsA total of 471 consecutive hypertensive patients with suspected coronary artery disease and normal perfusion at stress MPS were followed for a mean of 76 ± 21 months. Endpoint events were cardiac death or nonfatal myocardial infarction. With Cox analysis, age (hazard ratio 1.1,P

AbstractA novel single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) camera was developed to evaluate dynamic myocardial perfusion flow. However, it is unclear whether myocardial flow reserve (MFR) derived by dynamic perfusion SPECT using the novel SPECT camera (D-SPECT) reflects the severity of coronary atherosclerosis. In the present study, we therefore examined the relationship between MFR using D-SPECT and severity of coronary lesions. The study population comprised 40 patients who underwent both a myocardial dynamic perfusion SPECT study and invasive coronary angiography. The severity of coronary atherosclerosis was eva...

Postoperative pain is a clinically relevant issue in orthopedic patients, affecting more than 40% 1 year after foot and ankle surgery. Because of the very complex anatomy with many different joints and several motion axes, clinical examination and conventional imaging are sometimes not sufficient to identify a local pain generator. Local uptake of bone-seeking radiopharmaceuticals is known to correlate accurately with sites of pain generating foci and, thus, bone scintigraphy has been an established method to evaluate these respective patients for many years.

In this study, we aimed to assess the robustness of this parameter in a group of patients with well-characterized drug-resistant epilepsy in whom the exact location of the IOZ was known after successful epilepsy surgery. Eighty patients underwent preoperative SISCOM and were seizure free in a postoperative period of minimum 1  year. SISCOMs withz-threshold 2 and 1.5 were analyzed by two experienced readers separately, blinded from the clinical ground truth data. Their reported location of the IOZ was compared with the operative resection zone. Furthermore, confidence scores of the SISCOM IOZ were compared for the two ...

This study was undertaken to evaluate the renal radioactivity levels of a newly designed 67Ga-labeled antibody fragment with a linkage cleaved by enzymes present on the brush border membrane (BBM) lining the lumen of the renal tubule. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: 67Ga-labeled S-2-(4-isothiocyanatobenzyl)-1,4,7-triazacyclononane-1,4,7-triacetic acid (SCN-Bn-NOTA) was conjugated with an antibody Fab fragment through a Met-Val-Lys linkage (67Ga-NOTA-MVK-Fab) considering that a Met-Val sequence is a substrate of enzymes on the renal BBM and 67Ga-NOTA-Met is excreted from the kidney into the urine. The enzymatic recognition of the...

ConclusionThe specificity, overall accuracy, and PPV of whole-body DWIBS are significantly lower than those of18F-FDG PET/CT because of a high incidence of false-positive findings particularly for detecting bone metastasis, whereas whole-body DWIBS shows a similar level of sensitivities for detecting lymph node and bone metastases to those of18F-FDG PET/CT. DWIBS should be carefully used for cancer staging in children because of its high incidence of false-positive findings in skeletons.

AbstractIn 2017, theJournal of Nuclear Cardiology published many high-quality articles. In this review, we will summarize a selection of these articles to provide a concise review of the main advancements that have recently occurred in the field. In the first article of this 2-part series, we focused on publications dealing with positron emission tomography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance. This review will place emphasis on myocardial perfusion imaging using single-photon emission computed tomography summarizing advances in the field including prognosis, safety and tolerability, the impact of imaging on manage...
