The manipulation of a wide variety of unsealed sources in Nuclear Medicine results in a significant risk of internal exposure of the workers. 131I should be highlighted among the most frequently used radionuclides because of its large application for diagnosis and therapy of thyroid diseases. The increasing use of radionuclides for medical purposes creates(More)
This study evaluated biokinetic behavior of radioiodine in the bodies of ten female adult patients, with well-differentiated thyroid cancer, treated with 131I post-near total thyroidectomy, for ablation of remnant thyroid. In vivo and in vitro bioassay analyses were performed from the first hour following radioiodine administration until minimum detection(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Androgenetic alopecia is an extremely common dermatological disorder affecting both men and women. Oral finasteride (FNS), a synthetic 4-aza-3-oxosteroid compound with poor aqueous solubility, blocks the peripheral conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in a significant reduction in DHT concentration, achieving satisfactory(More)
The concern about accidents involving radioactive materials has led to the search of alternative methods to quickly identify and quantify radionuclides in workers and in the population. One of the options to face up an eventual demand for mass monitoring of internal contamination is the use of a nuclear medicine diagnostic equipment known as gamma camera, a(More)
In general, well-differentiated thyroid cancer treatment consists in Na 131 I administration following total or a near total thyroidectomy. The activity of a single administration in the majority of nuclear centers ranges from 1 to 4 GBq for residual thyroid tissue elimination and ranges from 4 to 8 GBq for residual thyroid tissue as well as metastases(More)
Pancreatic cancer remains one of the most lethal cancers worldwide, with an extremely poor prognosis. This cancer is considered the 5th leading cause of cancer related death. The median survival after diagnosis is generally 2-8 months and five-year survival rate is less than 5%. In recent years, nanotechnology is emerging as a rising approach for drug(More)
Several methods can be used to determine the activity of (131)I in the treatment of hyperthyroidism. However, many of them do not consider all the parameters necessary for optimum dose calculation. The relationship between the dose absorbed by the thyroid and the activity administered depends basically on three parameters: organ mass, iodine uptake and(More)
