PET/CT imaging of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection
Tuberculosis has a high morbidity and mortality worldwide. Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) has a complex pathophysiology; it is an aerobic bacillus capable of surviving in anaerobic conditions in aExpand
Evaluation of glucose uptake by skeletal muscle tissue and subcutaneous fat in HIV-infected patients with and without lipodystrophy using FDG-PET
ObjectiveTo evaluate differences in glucose uptake by skeletal muscle tissue and subcutaneous fat in HIV patients on highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) presenting with and withoutExpand
Imaging fungal infections in children
Fungal infections in children rarely occur, but continue to have a high morbidity and mortality despite the development of newer antifungal agents. It is essential for these infections to beExpand
Arterial inflammation in young patients with human immunodeficiency virus infection: A cross-sectional study using F-18 FDG PET/CT
BackgroundHIV infection is associated with the risk of development of atherosclerosis at a younger age. We compared arterial inflammation in HIV-infected and HIV-uninfected patients with otherwiseExpand
Outcome of Radioiodine Therapy in a West African Population
Hyperthyroidism continues to be a pressing public health concern in West Africa. Its prevalence in Africa has been quoted as 1.2%-9.9%, with Graves' disease as its most common cause. Radioiodine-131Expand
New Imaging Tracers for the Infected Diabetic Foot (Nuclear and Optical Imaging).
Diabetic Foot Infections (DFIs) are associated with increased morbidity, an economic burden on patients, their families and healthcare systems and increased mortality. Early diagnosis with prompt,Expand
Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography integrated with computed tomography in carcinoma of the cervix: Its impact on accurate staging and the predictive role of its metabolic parameters
Objectives To determine the impact of FDG-PET/CT in the initial staging of cervical cancer among women with and without HIV and to determine the abilities of FDG-PET/CT metabolic parameters inExpand
Association of hemodynamic response during dipyridamole stress testing with 99mTc-MIBI SPET myocardial perfusion image findings.
The aim of this study was to assess whether there is an association between changes in the heart rate and blood pressure after dipyridamole stress and abnormal scan findings detected with gatedExpand
Diagnostic sensitivity of Tc‐99m HYNIC PSMA SPECT/CT in prostate carcinoma: A comparative analysis with Ga‐68 PSMA PET/CT
Emerging data from published studies are demonstrating the superiority of Ga‐68 PSMA PET/CT imaging in prostate cancer. However, the low yield of the Ge‐68/Ga‐68 from which Gallium‐68 is obtained andExpand
Prognostic Value of Pre-treatment F-18 FDG PET Metabolic Metrics in Patients with Locally Advanced Carcinoma of the Anus with and without HIV Infection.
