18F-sodium fluoride bone deposition quantitation with PET in Mice: Variation with age, sex, and circadian rhythm.
Abstract AIM:  The aim of this study was to establish a data base for normal 18F-sodium fluoride (18F-NaF) bone uptake as a function of age, sex and circadian rhythm in mice. METHODS:  In 12 female (F) and 12 male (M) C57BL/6N mice PET images were acquired 90 min after intravenous injection of 20 MBq 18F-NaF for 30 minutes. Each mouse was imaged in follow-up studies at 1, 3, 6, 13 and 21 months of age. In order to assess for physiologic changes related to circadian rhythm, animals were imaged during light (sleep phase) as well as during night conditions (awake phase). Bone uptake is described as...

Estimation of [177Lu]PSMA-617 tumor uptake based on voxel-wise 3D  Monte Carlo tumor dosimetry in patients with metastasized castration resistant prostate cancer.
We present a novel patient-specific Monte Carlo based voxel-wise dosimetry approach to determine organ and total tumor doses (TTD). METHODS:  13 patients with histologically confirmed metastasized castration-resistant prostate cancer were treated with a total of 18 cycles of [177Lu]PSMA-617 therapy. In each patient, dosimetry was performed after the first cycle of [177Lu]PSMA-617 therapy. Regions of interest were defined manually on the SPECT/CT images for the kidneys, spleen and all 295 PSMA-positive tumor lesions in the field of view. The absorbed dose to normal organs and to all tumor lesions were calculated b...

Chalcogen bonding interactions in telluroether heterocycles [Te(CH2)m]n (n = 1-4; m = 3-7).
RS Abstract The Te…Te secondary bonding interactions (SBI) in solid heterocyclic telluroethers were explored by preparing and structurally characterizing a series of [Te(CH2)m]n (n = 1-4; m = 3-7) species.  The SBIs in 1,7-Te2(CH2)10, 1,8-Te2(CH2)12, 1,5,9-Te3(CH2)9, 1,8,15-Te3(CH2)18, 1,7,13,19-Te4(CH2)20, 1,8,15,22-Te4(CH2)24, and 1,9,17,25-Te4(CH2)28 led to the tubular packing of the molecules, as has been observed previously for related thio- and selenoether rings. The nature of the intermolecular interactions was explored by solid-state PBE0-D3/pob-TZVP calculations involving periodic boundary co...

[Iodine-induced thyroid dysfunction].
CONCLUSION: In iodine-induced hyperthyroidism, antithyroid drugs and perchlorate are primarily used to decrease thyroid hormone synthesis and further iodine uptake into the thyroid. For the prophylaxis of x‑ray contrast agent-induced hyperthyroidism, perchlorate can be administered in high-risk settings in combination with antithyroid drugs, if possible starting one day before the iodine exposure.

[The thyroid gland in old age : Physiology and pathology].
Abstract In healthy older people the metabolism of thyroid hormones is physiologically altered and can possibly even actively contribute to longevity. This should also be taken into consideration in the treatment of diseases of the thyroid and principally also for younger patients. For example, with progressing age comorbidities become more prevalent and especially in cardiovascular diseases, hyperthyroidism is less well tolerated, and should be treated more aggressively. Benign multinodular goiter also becomes more prevalent in old age and should be surgically treated when causing mechanical symptoms. The treatme...

Impact of FDG-PET on therapy management and outcome of  differentiated thyroid carcinoma patients with elevated thyroglobulin despite negative iodine scintigraphy.
CONCLUSION:  The early use of FDG-PET imaging in cases of suspected recurrence or existence of dedifferentiated DTC can lead to changes in therapy management, specifically identifying patients unlikely to benefit from additional radioiodine therapy who would instead qualify for surgical therapy methods.

Transarterial chemoembolisation of colorectal liver metastases with irinotecan-loaded beads: What every interventional radiologist should know.
Abstract The last decade has seen important developments in the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). In this scenario, interventional locoregional treatments could play an expanding role offering safe and effective integrated options in the continuum-of-care offering curative as well as palliative approaches. Based on ESMO guidelines, the toolbox of ablative treatments also includes intra-arterial palliative options, like chemoembolization, that can be offered as an alternative option in patients failing the available chemotherapeutic regimens. However, to date, there is still a limited use of chemoem...

Sialoscintigraphy - Shopworn or Bestselling? A Traditional Procedure with New Prominent Role in Theranostics and Immuno-Oncology.
Abstract Sialoscintigraphy has been used in nuclear imaging for almost sixty years. It allows functional assessment and quantification of all large salivary glands. Physiological function of the salivary glands is essential for the preservation of the oral mucosa, the sense of taste and dental health. Impaired salivary gland function may lead to reduced or even absent salivation resulting in various complaints such as loss of taste reducing quality of life. During the recent years clinical relevance of assessment of salivary gland function has been rising. As novel radiopharmaceuticals such as 225Ac-PSMA or 177Lu-...

Interim PET evaluation in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma employing published recommendations: Comparison of the Deauville 5-point scale and the ΔSUVmax method.
Conclusion: When considering treatment intensification, the currently used Deauville score cut-off of an uptake above that of the liver seems to be inappropriate and associated with potential harm for DLBCL patients. The ΔSUVmax criterion of a relative reduction of the maximum standardized uptake value of less than or equal to 66% should be considered as an alternative.

Facile and Improved Precursor Synthesis for the Next Generation Cardiac Positron Emission Tomography Imaging Agent [18F]Flurpiridaz.
Abstract [ 18 F]Flurpiridaz is a recently  developed positron emission tomography tracer that is currently being investigated in phase III clinical trials to measure myocardial blood flow. The relatively long physical half-life of fluorine-18 alongside the high spatial resolution and outstanding myocardium-to-background ratio fuels its potential to be the next gold standard for the early detection of coronary artery disease. Notwithstanding the expected widespread use of [ 18 F]flurpiridaz, the reported multistep synthesis of its precursor for radiofluorination involves a hazardous alkylation step using carci...

Design and practical evaluation of a shielded application system for  intravenously administered radionuclide therapies.
CONCLUSION:  The presented application system for intravenous radionuclide therapies is feasible, safe, and cost-efficient. It has been shown that Lu-177-PRRT and -RLT can be performed without complications while ensuring nearly complete infusion of the prescribed radiopharmaceutical dose. Radiation exposure of the applying physician and other staff is low. The construction of the shielding box ensures complete shielding of all radionuclides currently used for radiomolecular therapies.

Achieving 10 ps coincidence time resolution in TOF-PET is an impossible dream.
Abstract A number of hardware and software developments in PET instrumentation during the last two decades have enabled improved localization of the position of annihilation along the line of response through precise measurement of the difference between the arrival times of the two annihilation photons. This concept is referred to as time-of-flight (TOF) PET and is implemented virtually on almost all commercial PET scanners. One limitation of this technology is the limited precision in the localization of the annihilation point owing to inherent uncertainty in the detector blocks and readout electronics which int...
