The objective of this study was to examine the prevalence of the coexistence of parkinsonism in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or mild Alzheimer's disease (AD). METHODS: Outpatients were evaluated with Mini-Mental State Examination, Clinical Dementia Rating Scale, NIA-AA criteria, MRI, and 123I-IMP SPECT (3D-SSP). Parkinsonism in patients diagnosed with MCI (Mini-Mental State Examination ≥24, n = 63) or mild AD (Mini-Mental State Examination 20-23, n = 43) was examined using the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale-III and 123I-FP-CIT dopamine transporter SPECT. RESULTS: On...

AbstractPurposeThe purpose of the study was to investigate the usefulness of quantitative salivary single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) using Tc-99m pertechnetate in Sj ögren’s syndrome (SS).MethodsWe retrospectively reviewed quantitative salivary SPECT/CT data from 95 xerostomic patients who were classified as either SS (n = 47, male:female = 0:47, age = 54.60 ± 13.16 y [mean ± SD]) or non-SS (n = 48, male:female = 5:43, age = 54.94 &plusm...

AbstractBackgroundWe investigated the feasibility of left ventricular (LV) and right ventricular (RV) volume and function estimation using a first-pass gated15O-water PET. This prospective study included 19 patients addressed for myocardial perfusion reserve assessment using15O-water PET. PET data were acquired at rest and after regadenoson stress, and gated first-pass images were reconstructed over the time range corresponding to tracer first-pass through the cardiac cavities and post-processed using TomPool software; LV and RV were segmented using a semi-automated 4D immersion algorithm. LV volumes were computed using a ...

This study evaluates the feasibility of clear imaging with 99mTc and 18F simultaneously, and demonstrates in vivo imaging with 99mTc and/or 18F. We used a Compton camera with silicon and cadmium telluride (Si/CdTe) semiconductors. We estimated the imaging performance of the Compton camera for 141 keV and 511 keV gamma rays from 99mTc and 22Na, respectively. Next, we simultaneously imaged 99mTc and 18F point sources to evaluate the cross-talk artifacts produced by a higher energy gamma-ray background. Then, in the in vivo experiments, three rats were injected with 99mTc-dimercaptosuccinic acid and/or 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose ...
