UNLABELLED Differences in the performance of cadmium-zinc-telluride (CZT) cameras or collimation systems that have recently been commercialized for myocardial SPECT remain unclear. In the present study, the performance of 3 of these systems was compared by a comprehensive analysis of phantom and human SPECT images. METHODS We evaluated the Discovery NM(More)
UNLABELLED The rates of growth of medically treated abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are difficult to determine, and relationships with parietal inflammation and with metabolic parameters from (18)F-FDG PET remain unclear. This (18)F-FDG PET sequential observational study was aimed at analyzing the metabolic changes accompanying the growth phases of(More)
PURPOSE Glioma grading is necessary for prognostic evaluation and optimal treatment decisions. The aims of this study were to establish whether a correlation between F-FDOPA uptake with tumor grade was observed and to determine which of the SUV-derived indices was the best correlated. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty-one patients were retrospectively included(More)
BACKGROUND 18F-FDG PET can be used to aid in the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and clarify the diagnosis and prognosis of patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). PURPOSE To compare the results of a quantitative analysis of FDG-PET brain images to a standard visual analysis (SVA) with regards to the detection of MCI-like hypometabolic(More)
Radiosurgery (RS) is an alternative to open standard stereotactic procedures (deep-brain stimulation or radiofrequency thalamotomy) for drug-resistant essential tremor (ET), aiming at the same target (ventro-intermediate nucleus, Vim). We investigated the Vim RS outcome using voxel-based morphometry by evaluating the interaction between clinical response(More)
The results of stress myocardial perfusion SPECT could be enhanced by new cadmium-zinc-telluride (CZT) cameras, although differences compared to the results with conventional Anger cameras remain poorly known for most study protocols. This study was aimed at comparing the results of CZT and Anger SPECT according to various study protocols while taking into(More)
The World Health Organization Classification of Tumors of the Central Nervous System has recently been updated by the integration of diagnostic and prognostic molecular parameters, giving pivotal attention to IDH mutation as a favourable factor. Amino acid PET is increasingly used in the management of gliomas, but its prognostic value is a matter of debate.(More)
Injected doses are difficult to optimize for exercise SPECT since they depend on the myocardial fraction of injected activity (MFI) that is detected by the camera. The aim of this study was to analyse the factors affecting MFI determined using a cardiac CZT camera as compared with those determined using conventional Anger cameras. Factors affecting MFI were(More)
Dear Sir, Over the past few years, brain tumor imaging has been evaluated with several radiolabeled amino acid radiopharmaceuticals for which the increased uptake is classically associated with the metabolic reprogramming necessary to meet growth requirements. In this line, the Response Assessment in NeuroOncology (RANO) working group has recently(More)
Effective doses of 14 mSv or higher are currently being attained in patients having stress and rest myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) performed on the same day with conventional protocols. This study aimed to assess the actual reduction in effective doses as well as diagnostic performances for MPI(More)
