UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to evaluate, whether PET with (18)F-FDG and 3'-deoxy-3'-(18)F-fluorothymidine ((18)F-FLT) may be used to monitor noninvasively the antiproliferative effects of tyrosine kinase inhibitors. METHODS Using a high-resolution small animal scanner, we measured the effect of the ErbB-selective kinase inhibitor PKI-166 on the(More)
Familial cardiac myxoma is a rare syndrome which constitutes approximately 10% or less of all myxomas. We describe a rare case of LA and LV mass simultaneously in a 35-year-old female presenting to our hospital for evaluation of recurrent cardiac myxoma. Echocardiography revealed both LA and LV mass. Surgery was done and histological findings confirmed the(More)
BACKGROUND Deep neck space abscesses are common head and neck surgery emergencies. Traditionally, surgical incision and drainage has been the main treatment for deep neck abscesses. Recently, it has been suggested that ultrasound-guided drainage of neck abscesses can be an effective and less invasive alternative to incision and drainage. METHODS Patients(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine the impact of positron emission tomography (PET) with 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose (FDG) and combined conventional imaging on clinical stage and their ability to predict the clinical outcome of previously treated lymphoma patients. PROCEDURES Seventy-eight patients with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL) were(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine the ability of 2-deoxy-2-[(18)F]fluoro-d-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) to predict the clinical outcome of previously treated patients with Hodgkin's Disease (HD). PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty-two patients were studied with PET within a median interval of 5.2 months after treatment.(More)
BACKGROUND The diagnosis of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis still remains a real challenge. Seizure, unusual headache with sudden onset, unexplained persistently unilateral vascular headache and neurologic deficit-which is difficult to be attributed to a vascular territory are some of the suggestive symptoms. CASE An isolated sixth nerve palsy is(More)
