We examined this relationship in a large population of patients in whom the coronary anatomy was defined by invasive coronary angiography. Methods We retrospectively extracted details on individuals undergoing MPI with single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) who had coronary angiography within 12 months. A 17-segment model for native coronary anatomy and a 7-region model for myocardial perfusion were used with a dedicated matching algorithm. Results A total of 2564 patients were included, yielding a total of 6279 stenoses matched with 17 948 myocardial regions. From such a cohort, 151 (5.9%) patients had...
Conclusion: Differentiation of benign and metastatic lesions by Evolution SPECT/CT images has superior diagnostic performance and diagnostic confidence over the planar scintigraphy. Thus, Evolution SPECT/CT images should be considered in characterization of indeterminate lesions on planar scintigraphy, especially in the axial skeleton. PMID: 29911774 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsComparison between simulation and experimental results showed that among these MC codes, GATE enabled to accurately model realistic SPECT system and electromagnetic physical processes, but it required more time and hardware facilities to run simulations. SIMIND was the most flexible and user-friendly code to simulate a SPECT camera, but it had limitations in defining the non-conventional imaging device. The most important characteristics like time and speed of simulation, preciseness of results, and user-friendliness should be considered during simulations.
ConclusionThe uptake of Cbl within malignant breast tumors can be imaged clinically. Cbl uptake is greatest in TN and HER2-positive breast tumors. A solitary bolus of AC or DEX increases the [111In]AC uptake within a breast tumorin vivo. Investigating the cytogenetic mechanisms controlling the endocytosis of Cbl in malignant breast tumors is warranted.
Conclusions Vasculitis may contribute to the development of neuropsychiatric involvement in HCV patients.
This review summarizes the role of SPECT/CT in patients with a painful postoperative knee and describes typical diagnostic criteria in these patients. Pain after knee surgery is common and is influenced by the underlying pathology, the type of surgery, and the patient. Knee joint-preserving surgery includes osteotomy, ligament reconstruction, meniscus surgery, and cartilage repair procedures, often used in combination. Knee arthroplasty procedures consist of unicondylar, patellofemoral, and primary or revision total knee prosthesis.
CONCLUSION: Comparison of pre-explantation and post-implantation iopMRI scans with CT/MRI data using the volume-rendering technique resulted in an accurate placement of electrodes. In one patient with a considerable electrode dislocation, the surgical approach and extent was changed due to the detected electrode shift.

Conclusion: 99mTc-GlcNAc-PEI SPECT/CT was useful in assessing liver fibrosis and monitoring the treatment response.
Conclusion: Our study suggests that there is a clinical theranostic potential for imaging-guided arterial embolization with 131I-HCuSNPs-MS-PTX for the treatment of liver tumors.
