Conclusions: 99mTc-rhAnnexin V-128 imaging is safe with no observed adverse events or lab result changes. 99mTc-rhAnnexin V-128 imaging of apoptosis is feasible with excellent image quality at one and 2 hours following tracer injection. Significant focal uptake was identified in 1/12 patients and none of the 5 controls. Quantitative analysis of the planar images showed significantly greater uptake of annexin in patients compared to controls for both carotid arteries and at one and two hours.
1436Objectives:Preoperative ultrasonography and 99mTc-sestaMIBI are commonly used to localize abnormal parathyroid glands. When these procedures failed in the detection of lesions it is important to rely on another diagnostic imaging modalities. 18F-FDG and 11C-methionine have been studied, but are imperfect to detect abnormal parathyroid glands. We have evaluated the role of 18F-Fluorocholine (FCH) PET-CT in the detection of parathyroid adenoma in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism with negative or inconclusive ultrasound and Tc99m-sestaMIBI SPECT-CT prior to radioguided surgery (ROLL guided by ultrasound) based on...
Conclusion: SPECT dynamic imaging of 123I-mIBG can be used as an effective tool in the early detection of doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity, since 123I-mIBG quantification using VT decreased as early as cumulative doxorubicin doses of 3-5 mg/kg and preceded systolic dysfunction as derived by echocardiography. Additional large-animal studies are ongoing to further confirm this conclusion.
631Objectives: The purpose of this study was to determine the capability of single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography(SPECT/CT) to differentiation of cavernous hemangioma from other orbital tumours. Methods 119 patients( 50 males and 69 females; mean age, 44.6±15.8 [SD] years; age range, 6-80 years) with unilateral orbital tumours, including 63 cavernous hemangiomas and 56 other orbital tumours, were examined. The scanning procedure included an initial perfusion phase, followed by an early and a delayed blood pool phase. All patients underwent ultrasonography and CT, and 76 patients also underwe...
Conclusion: Combination of traditional 99mTcDTPA renal dynamic scintigraphy and renogram with SPECT/CT could provide not only anatomical and functional information of kidneys and ureters in the evaluation of obstructive uropathy and may also show the causes of the disease. Our study indicated that the added value of a simultaneous CT imaging renal scintigraphy and SPECT had a clear added value of confidence in daily clinical practice.
Conclusions Swine is a better animal model for investigating the post-MIinflammation. 18F-FDG signal in remote area is related to left ventricular remodeling.Research Support.:The project supported by National Natural Science Foundation of China (81471694).
This study was approved by the IRB at MedStar Health and all participants signed informed consent. Participants were injected with 925 MBq (25 mCi) of 99mTc-sestamibi intravenously and whole body images were acquired after ~1h with acquisition speed 4cm/min with parallel-hole low-energy collimator. Extra spot view, pinhole view, or SPECT/CT images were performed when necessary. Two blinded nuclear medicine physicians independently interpreted the 99mTc-sestamibi images, and graded each foci 1-5 (1 = definite physiological uptake or artifact; 2 = most likely physiological uptake or artifact; 3 = indeterminate; 4 = most like...
Conclusion: The results from this NMA indicate that the diagnostic value of the BSGI, MG + SMM, MRI and CE-MRI methods for BC were relatively higher in terms of sensitivity, specificity and accuracy.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;46:2041 –2055
