PET-CT Changes Management In Patients With Gastric Adenocarcinoma

The study find that the 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography FDG PET-CT is valuable in the management of patients with oesophageal cancer, but a role in gastric cancer staging is debated. Our aim was to review the role of FDG PET-CT in a large gastric cancer cohort in a tertiary UK centre. Gastric adenocarcinoma can…

Life Of Nuclear Medicines Is Low Compared With Other Drugs

The researches find that the Healthcare professionals are particularly concerned about the impact this could have on nuclear medicine. This branch of medicine mostly involves using radioactive dyes to perform diagnostic tests; which can be used to check if cancer has spread or to see how well the heart or kidneys are working. Therapies are…

Patients Underwent 2‐[18F]‐2‐Deoxy‐D‐Glucose PET/CT Imaging

This study is aim to investigate the relationship between IDH3a expression and tumor glucose uptake. Sixty‐five patients who underwent 2‐[18F]‐2‐deoxy‐D‐glucose ([18F]‐FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging before surgery and pathologically diagnosed as lung adenocarcinoma were included. All patients were divided into high (n = 31) and low (n = 34) groups according IDH3a expression…

Radioactive Tracers Used In PET And In SPECT Scans

Researchers have completed a successful clinical trial, managing to detect and image radioactive tracers used in PET and in SPECT scans at the same time, with the hope of enabling doctors to scan patients for abnormalities in shorter times while reducing the amount of radiation patients would be exposed to. With today’s technology; patients who…

Utility Of 18F-FDG-PET/MRI Brain In Dementia

The study find that the 18F-FDG-PET is a potential sensitive biomarker indicating neuronal damage. 18F-FDG-PET has proven to be useful in sub typing dementia. Utility of simultaneous 18F-FDG-PET and MRI-brain was investigated in the evaluation of dementia in this facility. Method: All case notes of patients who underwent 18 F-FDG-PET/MRI brain attending the Geriatric Clinic…

Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Post-therapy PET/CT Images

The researches find that the radiomics-based differentiation of local recurrence versus inflammation from post-treatment nasopharyngeal positron emission tomography/X-ray computed tomography PET/CT images The standard-of-care treatment for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy. Despite significant improvement in local control due to improved treatment techniques, local recurrence still accounts for about 28 % of…

Clinical Personal Connectomics Using Hybrid PET/MRI

The researches find that that a hope to use hybrid PET/MRI for the evaluation of the neuropsychiatric diseases which could not be characterized for their uniqueness by any brain imaging alone. In most of neuropsychiatric diseases, MRI was normal and FDG PET was normal, too; however; the patients are of course abnormal in their behavior,…

Accuracy of FDG PET/CT in Suspected LVAD Infections

This single-center case series is a retrospective study of consecutive FDG PET/CT scans performed on LVAD patients between September 2015 and February 2018 at the University of Michigan. Studies were identified through screening all cardiac FDG PET/CT scans protocol to assess for inflammation in this time frame. Inclusion criterion was LVAD device at the time…

PET/CT Is Routinely Utilized To Investigate Lymph Node Metastases

Positron emission tomography PET/ CT is routinely utilized to investigate lymph node (LN) metastases in non-small cell lung cancer. However, it is less sensitive in normal-sized LNs. This study was performed in order to define the prevalence of mediastinal LN metastases discovered on combined endosonography by endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) fine needle…

11C-Choline PET/CT in CRPC Patients And The Efcacy Of Local Treatments

The researches find that the Carbon 11-choline positron emission tomography/computed tomography (11C-choline PET/CT) and subsequent local therapy for oligometastatic prostate cancer have been report to be effective; but their efectiveness in castration resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) remains unclear. Here, we evaluated the findings of 11C-choline PET/CT in CRPC patients and the efcacy of local treatments…
