EANM/ESC procedural guidelines for myocardial perfusion imaging in nuclear cardiology
The European procedural guidelines for radionuclide imaging of myocardial perfusion and viability are presented in 13 sections covering patient information, radiopharmaceuticals, injected activitiesExpand
Evaluation of right ventricular volume and function by 2D and 3D echocardiography compared to MRI.
Compared to MRI, 3D echocardiographic estimates of RV size and RVEF show only moderate correlation to MRI measures of these parameters, and simple 1D and 2D eChocardiography estimates of RP size and function show similar correlations. Expand
Functional Imaging of Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Head-to-Head Comparison of Somatostatin Receptor Scintigraphy, 123I-MIBG Scintigraphy, and 18F-FDG PET
The results indicate that, although SRS should still be the routine method, 18F-FDG PET provides complementary diagnostic information and is of value for neuroendocrine tumor patients with negative SRS findings or a high proliferation index. Expand
18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography Predicts Survival of Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
This study shows a strong prognostic value of FDG-PET for NE tumors, which exceeds the prognosticvalue of traditional markers such as Ki67, chromogranin A, and liver metastases. Expand
Guideline for PET/CT imaging of neuroendocrine neoplasms with 68Ga-DOTA-conjugated somatostatin receptor targeting peptides and 18F–DOPA
This guideline is aimed to assist nuclear medicine physicians in recommending, performing, reporting and interpreting the results of somatostatin receptor (SSTR) PET/CT imaging using 68Ga-DOTA-conjugated peptides, as well as 18F-DOPA imaging for various neuroendocrine neoplasms. Expand
Effects of passive heating on central blood volume and ventricular dimensions in humans
It is concluded that heat stress shifts blood volume from thoracic and splanchnic regions presumably to aid in heat dissipation, while simultaneously increasing heart rate and ejection fraction. Expand
EANM/ESC guidelines for radionuclide imaging of cardiac function
These first European guidelines give recommendations for how and when to use first-pass and equilibrium radionuclide ventriculography, gated myocardial perfusion scintigraphy, gation PET, and studies with non-imaging devices for the evaluation of cardiac function. Expand
ENETS Consensus Guidelines for the Standards of Care in Neuroendocrine Tumors: Radiological, Nuclear Medicine and Hybrid Imaging
Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) of the neck-thorax-abdomen and pelvis, including 3-phase examination of the liver, constitutes the basic imaging for primary neuroendocrine tumor (NET)Expand
Heart failure and neuroendocrine activation: diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic perspectives.
The important neuroendocrine systems involved in heart failure are reviewed with special emphasis on their possible role in pathophysiology and their relation to prognostic and diagnosticExpand
Unexplained week‐to‐week variation in BNP and NT‐proBNP is low in chronic heart failure patients during steady state
The usefulness of brain‐natriuretic‐peptide (BNP) and N‐terminal‐pro‐brain‐natriuretic‐peptide (NT‐proBNP) for monitoring of chronic heart failure (CHF) patients has been questioned because of highExpand
