Comparison of 18F-DCFPyL and 18F-FDG PET/computed tomography for the restaging of clear cell renal cell carcinoma: preliminary results of 15 patients
Conclusions Our preliminary results indicated that 18F-DCFPyL PET/computed tomography is superior to 18F-FDG PET/computed tomography for the detection of local recurrence at both the surgical site and in bone metastasis while the tracers are comparable in the detection of soft tissue metastases.

Pilot study comparing dominant intraprostatic lesion volume using Ga-68 prostate-specific membrane antigen PET-computed tomography and multiparametric MRI
Purpose The standard imaging used for delineation of dominant intraprostatic lesion (DIL) is multiparametric MRI (mpMRI). The use of biologic imaging such as Ga-68 prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET-computed tomography (PET-CT) for this purpose is being explored in view of increased sensitivity of this modality and the associated ease of delineation. Materials and methods The primary objective of the study was to compare the autogenerated volumes of the DIL in Ga-68 PSMA PET-CT with the standard volume delineated in mpMRI. Twenty patients with biopsy-proven untreated prostatic adenocarcinoma were incl...

18F-FDG PET/computed tomography may predict the outcome of newly diagnosed indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma in patients managed with initial ‘watch-and-wait’ approach
Conclusion A proportion of patients with NHL might experience spontaneous regression of lymphoma. 18F-FDG PET/CT turned out as a prognostic factor for TLT in patients with NHL under watchful waiting. (Source: Nuclear Medicine Communications)

18F-FDG-PET brain imaging may highlight brain metabolic alterations in dysautonomic syndrome after human papilloma virus vaccination
Aim The aim of this study was to evaluate brain glucose metabolism by means of [18F]-fluoro-deoxygluycose (18F-FDG) PET in a group of patients presenting dysautonomic syndrome after human papilloma virus (HPV) immunization. Methods Medical records of patients, referred to the ‘Second Opinion Medical Consulting Network’ Medical Centre (Modena, Italy) diagnosed with dysautonomic syndrome were searched. Inclusion criteria were presence in the medical history of adverse drug reactions following HPV vaccine; a Montreal Cognitive Assessment score (Source: Nuclear Medicine Communications)
