Publication date: 2018 Source:Handbook of Clinical Neurology, Volume 152 Author(s): Dieta Brandsma, Jacoline E.C. Bromberg Primary CNS lymphoma (PCNSL) has been designated an acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS)-defining disease since 1983 and accounts for up to 15% of non-Hodgkin lymphomas in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) patients. The majority of HIV patients are Epstein–Barr virus (EBV)-related. The most likely etiology is ineffective immunoregulation of EBV, inducing oncogenic protein expression, and subsequent loss of apoptosis and increased proliferation of lymphocytes. PCNSL generally presents with...

AbstractContextAccurate preoperative localization of abnormal parathyroid tissue aids importantly in minimally invasive parathyroidectomy in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. Vitamin D deficiency may possibly influence the success and characteristics of pre-operative localization because it is associated with more active disease and possibly larger adenomas. This could increase the sensitivity of the sestamibi to identify abnormal parathyroid tissue, but earlier reports are conflicting. Vitamin D deficiency could also influence the nature of preoperative localization because it could lead to multi-gland stimulatio...

ConclusionsThe use of gamma camera-based freehandSPECT aids intraoperative lesion identification and, with that, supports the transition from pre- to intraoperative imaging via augmented reality display and directional guidance.

Conclusion: Tc99m-HIDA SPECT /CT scintigraphy had high specificity and NPV in detecting bile leak in post LT patients in comparison with other imaging modalities like USG and 320 slice CECT . Post LT patients with persistently or progressively elevated bilirubin may be subjected to HIDA scintigraphy as it guides for early and appropriate surgical intervention which serves for better clinical outcome and prognosis of patient. As it has high NPV it is included as routine protocol for post live donor LT patients on 4th post operative day. It also aids in predicting the impairment of graft function in advance. Sensitivity, spe...

AbstractThe purpose of this prospective study was to determine the incremental diagnostic value of single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography with iodine-131 over planar whole body scan in the staging of patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma. A total of 365 patients (270 female, 95 male) with differentiated thyroid carcinoma were treated with radioiodine therapy for thyroid remnant ablation with radical intent after thyroidectomy between January 2013 and November 2014. In addition to planar whole body scan, single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography of neck and chest were pe...
