Quantification of myocardial blood flow (MBF) with generator-produced 82Rb is an attractive alternative for centres without an on-site cyclotron. Our aim was to validate 82Rb-measured MBF in relation to that measured using 15O-water, as a tracer 100% of which can be extracted from the circulation even at high flow rates, in healthy control subject and(More)
Neuroblastoma is a frequent tumor of childhood and remains a leading cause of death despite treatment intensification. Many clinical, biological and genetic factors have been identified and are associated with prognosis and outcome after treatment. Initial staging plays a major role for determining the therapeutic strategy. Radioiodinated(More)
The role of cholecystokinin (CCK) in the regulation of gastric emptying of physiological meals containing solids and liquids in humans remains controversial. We studied the role of endogenous CCK in the emptying of a solid/liquid meal administering the new, highly specific and potent CCK-A receptor antagonist lintitript. Gastric emptying was assessed in(More)
This prospective study evaluates bone marrow scintigraphy (BMS) in detecting bone metastases from primary breast cancer when performed in complement to conventional bone scan (BS). Sixty women predominantly with low-stage disease underwent BS followed by BMS within 1-35 days using BW250/183 antigranulocyte antibodies. A receiver operating characteristic(More)
PURPOSE The benefit of surgery on renal function in unilateral ureteropelvic junction stenosis (UPJS) is still debated. We evaluated renal function outcome after unilateral pyeloplasty in 53 children. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 123I-hippuran renography performed at diagnosis and 5 to 15 years (mean +/- SD 7 +/- 3 years) after(More)
Of 10 patients with neuroblastoma who had both 123I-MIBG scintigraphy and MRI at diagnosis, four presented with bone marrow metastasis that was diagnosed by both imaging modalities and confirmed by bone marrow biopsy and smears. This report focuses on the follow up of the four patients with bone marrow metastasis. MIBG scintigraphy and MRI were concordant(More)
Neuroblastoma (NBL) is the commonest extra-cranial solid tumor in children and the leading cause of cancer related deaths in childhood between the age of 1 to 4 years. NBL may behave in very different ways, from the less aggressive stage 4S NBL or congenital forms that may resolve without treatment in up to 90% of the children, to the high-risk disseminated(More)
UNLABELLED The study aim was to assess the safety, biodistribution, tissue kinetics, and tumor uptake of the (99m)Tc-labeled neurotensin (NT) analog NT-XI. METHODS Four patients presenting ductal pancreatic adenocarcinoma were studied with (99m)Tc-NT-XI. Patients were followed by scintigraphy up to 4 h and by continued blood and urinary sampling until(More)
Various preparations of anti-CEA antibodies have shown to detect very sensitively CEA producing tumors. The development of human anti-mouse antibodies (HAMA) prevents from the widespread use of immunoscintigraphy (IS) in the follow-up of patients with colorectal carcinoma. It is, however, not yet clear if genetically reshaped antibodies will solve this(More)
AIM The clinical relevance of sentinel lymph node (SLN) analysis was evaluated prospectively and compared with other known risk factors of relapse in early stage melanoma. METHODS Surgery was guided by lymphoscintigraphy, blue dye and gamma probe detection. SLN were analysed by haematoxylin eosin (HE) histochemistry and multimarker immunohistochemistry(More)
