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...

Breast cancer is a major disease with high morbidity and mortality in women. As a highly heterogeneous tumor, it contains different molecular subtypes: luminal A, luminal B, human epidermal growth factor 2-positive, and triple-negative subtypes. As each subtype has unique features, it may not be universal to the optimal treatment and expected response for individual patients. Therefore, it is critical to identify different breast cancer subtypes. Targeting subcellular levels, molecular imaging, especially PET and single photon emission computed tomography, has become a promising means to identify breast cancer subtypes and...

This communication enumerates the current uses and potential areas where PET could be clinically utilized for developing “precision medicine” type model in thyroid carcinoma. (1) In routine clinics, PET imaging (with fluorodeoxyglucose [FDG]) is utilized to investigate patients of differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) with high thyroglobulin and negative iodine scintigraphy (TENIS) and in medullary carcinoma thyr oid (MCT) when the tumor markers (eg, calcitonin and carcino embryonic antigen [CEA]) are raised postoperatively (PET with FDG, 68Ga-DOTA-NOC/TATE, FDOPA). Both are examples of management personalizat...

AbstractPatients with HIV have a proclivity to develop liver fibrosis, especially when associated with other conditions such as HCV, HBV, and NAFLD. Identifying HIV-infected patients with significant fibrosis or cirrhosis plays an important role in clinical and therapeutic decision-making. Liver biopsy is currently considered as the gold standard for fibrosis assessment but carries many shortcomings (cost, invasiveness, complications, false negative rate of 20  %). Multiple non-invasive methods of liver fibrosis assessment have been developed, but not all have been studied in HIV-infected individuals. Non-invasive liv...
