AbstractAlzheimer ’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder and the most common cause of dementia. Beta-amyloid (Aβ) deposition and neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) of abnormal hyperphosphorylated tau protein are the pathological hallmarks of the disease, accompanied by other pathological processes such as microglia activation. Functional and molecular nuclear medicine imaging with single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET) techniques provides valuable information about the underlying pathological processes, many years before the appearance of cl ini...

AbstractThis mini-review highlights cardiovascular studies that were presented during the 2018 Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) annual meeting in Philadelphia. The aim of this review is to inform readers about several noteworthy studies reported at the meeting. Although cardiovascular application of PET and SPECT are not the primary focus of the SNMMI, several scientific teams working in this field presented their latest scientific findings at this meeting. The review therefore aims to inform the readers who did not attend the SNMMI annual meeting about some interesting new concepts presented this ...

CONCLUSIONS: Determination of the SUV value of the normal pelvis with 99m Tc-MDP SPECT/CT is feasible and highly reproducible. SUVs of the normal pelvis showed a relatively large variability. As a quantitative imaging biomarker, SUVs might require standardization with adequate reference data for the participant to minimize variability. PMID: 30103368 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractObjectivesSubstantia nigra hyperechogenicity (SN+) detected by transcranial ultrasound (TUS) is useful for Parkinson ’s disease (PD) diagnosis. Approximately 15% false negative results of unknown significance are reported. However, most TUS studies are transversal, and diagnosis of PD may change during follow-up.MethodsAnalysis of our prospective registry of TUS in clinical practice, selecting patients with sufficient bone window, to whom TUS was performed because of suspected PD, and a minimum of 3-year follow-up. Subjects were classified regarding SN echogenicity (SN+/SN −).Results172 patients (122 SN...
