BACKGROUND The primary aim of this study was to examine if factors such as renal function, height, weight and age could affect the uptake of sodium fluoride-18 (NaF-18) by the normal bone. This is the first study to examine the possible factors that can influence NaF-18 uptake in the normal bone. METHODS A retrospective study was done on NaF-18 PET/CT(More)
Myanmar (Burma) is a developing country in South East Asia. While Myanmar is among the 20 countries where 80% of the world's malnourished children live, its military consumes the majority of the national budget. Children who are malnourished between conception and age two are at high risk for impaired physical and mental development, which adversely affects(More)

We present a case of a 60-year-old white male with a history of papillary renal cell carcinoma (PRCC) status postpartial nepherectomy. He was followed-up annually with abdominal computed tomography (CT) scans to monitor for tumor recurrence. A solitary metastatic bony lesion was detected by CT 4 years after partial nephrectomy and it was confirmed by(More)
OBJECTIVES Nonreal-time Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (PET/CT) biopsies that use the image co-registration of a prior PET with an intra-procedural CT have been reported. The aim of this study was to report the initial experience of performing real-time intra-procedural PET/CT-guided biopsies. MATERIALS AND METHODS All patients (n = 4)(More)
We describe the case of a patient with known history of psoriasis that presented with 1 year of unexplained fever, muscle weakness and marked weight loss, suspicious for B symptoms of a malignant origin. [(18)F]-Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) scans demonstrated an unusual serpiginous pattern of uptake in the(More)
A 62-year-old male presented to the ER with three episodes of diffuse abdominal pain which occurred after eating. He had a history of renal cell carcinoma (RCC), prostate cancer and bladder cancer. FDG-PET/CT scan showed a hypermetabolic soft tissue density within the fundus of the gallbladder. The patient underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy and surgical(More)
Solid dysphagia in an elderly man with gastroesophageal reflux disease is suspicious for esophageal cancer [1]. Our patient was an 83-year-old Asian American male with Barrett’s esophagus and solid dysphagia. He also had prostate cancer and a recently determined high prostate-specific antigen raised the concern for metastasis. The common metastatic sites(More)
OBJECTIVES Cancer and metabolic bone diseases can alter the SUV. SUV values have never been measured from healthy skeletons in NaF18-PET/CT bone scans. The primary aim of this study was to measure the SUV values from normal skeletons in NaF18-PET/CT bone scans. METHODS A retrospective study was carried out involving NaF18- PET/CT bone scans that were done(More)
We present the case of a 69-year-old male with chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Chromophobe RCC accounts for only 4% of renal cancers and it is the least aggressive type. Omental nodular deposits due to RCC metastasis are very rare and it is reported only in more aggressive forms of RCC. This is the first report that shows FluoroDeoxyGlucose -(More)
Femoral head avascular necrosis (AVN) is bone destruction due to subchondral oxygen deficiency and necrosis. Our patient is a 63-year-old man with Gleason score 5+4 prostate cancer. He received external beam radiation therapy (7200 cGy) along with combined androgen blockade therapy of lupon/casodex. The patient was complaining of bone pain and on a(More)
