UNLABELLED Radioembolization with 90Y microspheres represents a novel transarterial radiation treatment for liver tumors. The purpose of this pilot study was to evaluate the findings of postimplantation PET/CT of 90Y glass microspheres. METHODS Three patients with hepatocellular carcinoma and 2 patients with liver metastases (1 neuroendocrine, 1(More)
Several pathologies have been reported to cause scintigraphic patterns similar to multiple bony metastases. Heterotopic bone formation is known to mimic several inflammatory and neoplastic conditions including recurrent tumors. However, no reports on multifocal heterotopic bone formation simulating the typical pattern of randomly distributed foci of(More)
PURPOSE The quality of conventional bone scintigraphy can be poor in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Fluorine-18-sodium fluoride (F-NaF) PET-computed tomography (CT) has rapid single-pass extraction, fast clearance from the soft tissues and a better target to background ratio. The aim of the present study is to preliminarily assess the(More)
PURPOSE Optimizing diagnostic imaging may be challenging in obese patients. The quality of conventional bone scintigraphy can be poor in the morbidly obese due to a combination of factors including high background soft tissue activity. In comparison, sodium fluoride (F-NaF PET-CT) has a better target-to-background ratio attributed to rapid single-pass(More)
Several different techniques, radiopharmaceuticals, and imaging modalities are commonly used in nuclear medicine for studies of endocrine organs. Nuclear medicine is used in the management of benign and malignant thyroid, parathyroid, and neuroendocrine disorders. Thus, it is essential to acknowledge pitfalls and the limitations of nuclear medicine imaging(More)
Post-poliomyelitis syndrome causes variable musculoskeletal manifestations including pain, muscle weakness and fatigue. These manifestations are commonly secondary to overuse and misuse of muscles and joints and could follow a fall. Bone scan can be useful in determining the underlying cause and follow-up. The objective of this study was to describe the(More)
