Adrenal glands uptake patterns in 18F-Fluoroethylcholine PET/CT

ConclusionsThe variability of radiocholine uptake in adrenal glands depends probably on overall body metabolism and hypophyseal function expressed by statistically significant correlation with liver and pituitary gland uptake.Predominant focal or mixed with focal areas uptake patterns on positron emission tomography in normal in computed tomography adrenal glands should be assessed with caution to avoid a diagnostic mistake.

AbstractPurposeThere is no consensus across guidelines on a diagnostic algorithm for upper urinary tract (UUT) evaluation following presentation with haematuria. Our aim is to compare the diagnostic accuracy of ultrasound (USS) compared to CT-scan for UUT malignancies and also determine the considerations important for a risk-based diagnostic protocol for haematuria.MethodsWe reviewed our ‘haematuria clinic’ database to identify patients who had both USS and CT-scan for UUT evaluation between September 2015 and August 2017, and calculated the diagnostic accuracy of these imaging modalities for histologically co...

We reported a 56-year-old man who presented with petechiae and ecchymoses. Laboratory studies showed the platelet count of 2 × 109/L and an abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan revealed tumors in the right renal. There were purpura on the legs and cough without abdominal pain and melena at this time. Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura was diagnosed according to the clinical symptoms and laboratory test. The patient received radical nephrectomy for renal carcinoma, and his idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura was cured after the surgery. Pathological biopsy confirmed it was renal clear cell carcinoma....

MRASN is helpful for operative plan formulation, intraoperative navigation, remote consultation, teaching guidance, and doctor ‐patient communication. MRALN may effectively improve the successful implementation rate of LPN and reduce the OT, WIT, and EBL. AbstractPurposeLaparoscopic nephrectomy (LN) has become the preferred method for renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Adequate preoperative assessment or intraoperative navigation is key to the successful implementation of LN. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical application value of mixed ‐reality–assisted surgical navigation (MRASN) in LN.Patients and Met...

478Objectives: Positron emission tomography (PET) with 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG), although not part of the standard protocol in RCC staging, shows promise for restaging and monitoring of treatment. Many studies reported high accuracy in the follow-up or suspected local recurrence/metastatic disease of patients with RCC. Meanwhile, although PSMA refers to prostate origin, it has been found in many other types of tumors and related neovascular endothelial cells, including transitional cell carcinoma, malignant melanoma, lung cancer soft tissue sarcoma, and kidney tumors. Clinically, people are increasingly interested in t...

Conclusions: Our study demonstrates that CRD significantly increased the tumor/normal tissue PET signal ratio in fumarase-deficient XP152 PDX in NOD-SCID mice, which suggests the potential of using CRD to enhance the detectability of [18F]FDG-PET of RCC tumors in clinical diagnosis and treatment assessment.
