Triple Triumph for MR Solutions with Third Queen â �(TM)s Award Win for Innovation in ...

MR Solutions, of Guildford has achieved a third Queen’s Award. This follows their win in 2016 with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise (Innovation), while in 2017 the company was recognised for their excellent performance in International Trade. MR Solutions is a world leader in preclinical imaging solutions involving MRI, PET, SPECT, and CT. This year’s award was for their ground breaking PET technology. The advanced PET scanner can be used as standalone unit, clipped on the...This story is related to the following:Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Scanners

ConclusionsSingle-photon examinations showed a continuous tendency toward a decline in the survey. In contrast, the number of hybrid SPECT/CT scanner examinations has increased. PET/CT study and radionuclide targeted therapy have steadily increased.

The objective of this research was to estimate whether a[99mTc]duramycin probe can be used for apoptosis imaging in patients with aortic aneurysm (AA). Vascular smooth muscle cell (SMC) apoptosis has an important influence on AA development. Thus, non-invasive imaging of SMC apoptosis may be able to evaluate AA progress and risk stratification. SMCs were treated with hydrogen peroxide (H2O2; 200  μΜ) or culture medium as a control. Apoptosis was measured using flow cytometry and[99mTc]duramycin to detect the binding efficiency to apoptotic SMCs. C57/BL6 mice were administered angiotensin-II and beta-aminopropion...

CONCLUSION:  A strong link between bone marrow metabolism and impaired myocardial function and perfusion was observed in women, but not in men. Our data suggest that novel biomarkers of inflammation might help to identify women at risk for ischemic cardiomyopathy and to tailor disease management to the female cardiovascular phenotype.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewWhilst gait impairment is a main cause for disability in Parkinson ’s disease (PD), its neural control remains poorly understood. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of neuroimaging studies of surrogate features of gait in PD.FindingsAssessing the results from PET or SPECT scans after a period of actual walking as well as fMRI during mental imagery or virtual reality (VR) gait paradigms, we found a varying pattern of gait-related brain activity. Overall, a decrease in activation of the SMA during gait was found in PD compared to elderly controls. In addition, the meta-analysis ...

Conclusions18F-FDOPA PET/CT is not sufficiently accurate for localization of primary well-differentiated nonfunctioning sporadic gastroduodenal NENs.18F-FDOPA PET/CT ’s value for the assessment of visceral and lymph node metastases needs to be clarified in multicenter trials including a larger number of patients.

Abstract Intravoxel incoherent motion has received extensive attention in brain studies for its potential as a non-invasive magnetic resonance perfusion method. However, studies on intravoxel incoherent motion imaging and crossed cerebellar diaschisis detection are relatively scarce. The aim of our study was to evaluate the feasibility of using intravoxel incoherent motion imaging in crossed cerebellar diaschisis diagnosis in subacute ischemic stroke patients by comparing results from intravoxel incoherent motion imaging, single-photon emission computed tomography, and arterial spin-labeling perfusion methods. In ...
