Phleboliths are small, round lumps of calcium that form inside a person's veins. This type of vascular calcification often occurs in the pelvic area and is more common with age. Phleboliths frequently develop in people over 40. On an X-ray, the lumps may be mistaken for kidney stones. Learn more about phleboliths here. (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)

Study: PET imaging agent could help predict depression drug ’ s efficacy
Image courtesy of Mala Ananth Researchers have identified a positron emission tomography imaging agent that could identify the patients that are more likely to benefit from a drug designed to treat major depressive disorder, according to a study published this month in The Journal of Nuclear Medicine. The C-DASB tracer targets a protein, 5-HTT, found in the part of a person’s brain that is responsible for emotional processing, called the amygdala. Escitalopram, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, is indicated for people with depression, but it doesn’t work for all patients. Scanning a person’s ...

PSMA PET/CT clearly differentiates prostate cancer from benign tissue
(Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging) Using nuclear medicine, German researchers have found a way to accurately differentiate cancerous tissue from healthy tissue in prostate cancer patients. The research is highlighted in the February issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine and demonstrates that the maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) on 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT scans correlates with PSMA-expression in primary prostate cancer. By this means, researchers were able to generate an SUVmax cutoff for the differentiation of cancerous and benign prostate tissue. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
