AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo evaluate the most recent evolutions in the field of single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) nuclear cardiac imaging (NCI), particularly regarding the influence of stress protocol specifics on test accuracy.Recent FindingsThe substantial improvement in both software and hardware SPECT settings may allow a drastic redefinition of the acquisition parameters, with a radical reduction of scanning time. Moreover, recent evidence has identified novel (contra)-indications to the different cardiac stressors, defining the categories of patients in which a specific stressor is most appropriate.S...

Research findings have shown that iRBD is a prodromal stage of synucleinopathies such as Parkinson's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, and multiple...

Publication date: 2019Source: International Review of Neurobiology, Volume 144Author(s): Oliver Cousins, Tayyabah Yousaf, Heather Wilson, Gennaro Pagano, Marios PolitisAbstractDementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) is the second most common cause of neurodegenerative dementia. The core clinical features of DLB include fluctuating cognition, visual hallucinations, rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder, and parkinsonism. Molecular imaging is a powerful tool to assess the brain function in vivo. In this chapter, we reviewed the positron emission tomography, single-photon emission computed tomography, and [123I]-metaiodobenzylgu...

AbstractProstate cancer is third common malignancy in men of old age (average 65  years) in Myanmar. Currently, serum PSA and bone scan are the markers of choice. Because of the evidence-based, promising success of68Ga-PSMA PET-CT and177Lu-PSMA theranostics in prostate cancer worldwide,99mTc-PSMA SPECT-CT imaging and177Lu-PSMA therapy has launched as a stepping-stone of theranostics in Myanmar with the available facilities. Twelve cases of prostate cancer patients were imaged with 600  MBq of99mTc-PSMA I+S SPECT-CT. Four metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (MCRPC) patients with abnormal result were tr...

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate the ability of anti-1-amino-3-anti-1-amino-3-[18F]fluorocyclobutane-1-carboxylic acid ([18F]fluciclovine) positron emission tomography/X-ray computed tomography (PET/CT) in comparison to Technetium-99m 2-methoxy isobutyl isonitrile ([99mTc]sestamibi) single-photon emission computed tomography/CT (SPECT/CT) for the localization of hyperfunctioning parathyroid glands in patients with hyperparathyroidism.ProceduresFour patients with hyperparathyroidism underwent 60-minutes sequential neck and thorax PET/CT after [18F]fluciclovine (352  ± 28 MBq) injection. Lesion uptake and...

Hybrid imaging combines the functional and molecular imaging of positron emission computed tomography and single-photon emission computed tomography with the anatomical information available from computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. As a result, the clinical utility of positron emission computed tomography/computed tomography and single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography has been clearly established in the past 17 y. In addition, the use of positron emission computed tomography/magnetic resonance, which was introduced to the clinic in the past decade, has continued to grow. These multimo...

AbstractIn this review, we summarize key articles that have been published in the Journal of Nuclear Cardiology in 2018 pertaining to nuclear cardiology with advanced multi-modality and hybrid imaging including positron emission tomography, cardiac-computed tomography, and magnetic resonance. In an upcoming review, we will summarize key articles that relate to the progress made in the field of single-photon emission computed tomography. We hope that these sister reviews will be useful to the reader to navigate the literature in our field.
