Conclusion The SWMD20% and FV20 of FL using 20% of the maximum SPECT count as the threshold may be better predictors for the risk of RP.

Navalón, C. Peña Radioiodine uptake in the thyroid tissue, metastasis of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC), and in other tissues, depends on the expression of sodium-iodide symporter (NIS). Vascular permeability, effusions, inflammation, and other mechanisms may also play a role in the accumulation of radioactive iodine. A 63-year-old woman underwent radioiodine therapy, as well as a post-therapy ...

Conclusion Four imaging procedures were evaluated from the perspective of a selected group of prostate cancer patients. NaF-PET/CT, choline-PET/CT, WB-MRI, and bone SPECT/CT are well accepted imaging methods, and most patients prefer NaF-PET/CT. PMID: 29313360 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Abadjian MZ, Edwards WB, Anderson CJ Abstract The tumor microenvironment consists of tumor, stromal, and immune cells, as well as extracellular milieu. Changes in numbers of these cell types and their environments have an impact on cancer growth and metastasis. Non-invasive imaging of aspects of the tumor microenvironment can provide important information on the aggressiveness of the cancer, whether or not it is metastatic, and can also help to determine early response to treatment. This chapter provides an overview on non-invasive in vivo imaging in humans and mouse models of various cell types and physio...

In readinglast year's RSNA report, I was struck with just how little has changed.Here I am this year, 2017, and here's how I looked at RSNA 2016:A little grayer, perhaps a pound or two more. But otherwise same ol'Dalai. And same ol'RSNA. I even manned the RAD-AID booth again:Yes, I tied the bow-tie all by myself.This is a model housed at the Bayer booth of the airship RAD-AID hopes to use to bring imaging to underserved areas; I think the official rendering is much more impressive, and maybe even a little, well,buxom:I'm still lobbying for a seat on the first flight. Did I saybuxom? I meanthandsome!I did attend the requisi...

ConclusionWe established a threshold value (SUV  >  7.0) for three-dimensional TBU for evaluating active bone metastatic burden in prostate cancer patients using bone SPECT/CT. Despite the small number of patients, we expect the change in TBU could be more accurate and sensitive than the change in BSI among patients who received Ra-223.

Abstract A 52-year-old man with papillary thyroid cancer underwent total thyroidectomy and subsequent 131I remnant ablation. The postablation whole-body radioiodine scanning showed an unexpected focus on the upper right arm. SPECT/CT found that the abnormal focus of radioactivity was from body surface. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of benign fibrous histiocytoma.
