OBJECTIVE Large cell pulmonary neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) is a poorly differentiated and high-grade neoplasm. It is positioned between an atypical carcinoid and small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the lung in a distinct family of pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors. The aim of our study was to detect somatostatin receptors in this uncommon malignancy(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of radiation synovectomy (RSV) in the treatment of recurrent joint effusions, using 90Y in patients with chosen inflammatory joint diseases. The group of treated patients consisted of 30 people. Qualification for the treatment was based on clinical assessment, three-phase bone scintigraphy (BS3) and(More)
BACKGROUND Association between preoperative perfusion pattern and reperfusion after carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is an important yet unexplored topic. Therefore, the aim of our study was to determine whether 99mTc-ECD single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) performed before carotid endarterectomy in patients with internal carotid artery (ICA)(More)
OBJECTIVE Published data describing scintigraphic evaluation of perfusion changes in patients with cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) after embolization are very scarce. The aim of our study was to evaluate these changes by using Tc-ethyl cysteinate dimer single photon emission computed tomography. MATERIALS AND METHODS The examinations were(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the cardiac sympathetic nervous system function in haemodialysed(HD), non-diabetic patients by iodine-123 meta-iodo-benzylguanidine(123I-mIBG). MATERIALS AND METHODS Planar scintigraphy of the chest was performed in 36 HD, male patients; 15 minutes and 4 hours post injection of 370 MBq of 123I-mIBG. The(More)
SPECT/CT imaging provides detailed information on the radiotracer distribution and enables simultaneous lesion morphology evaluation. This hybrid imaging delivers complementary information about patient's disease. We present two cases in which SPECT/CT imaging and cooperation between the nuclear medicine physician and radiologist quickly clarified the(More)
This review article discusses the utility of 18F-FDG PET/CT in diagnosis and management of vascular disease. We stress usefulness of this method in large vessel inflammation and infection. In our work we based on the literature analysis and clinical cases diagnosed in our institution by use of 18F-FDG PET/CT. The literature exploration was focusing on(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to assess the impact of 99mTc-EDDA/HYNIC-TOC (99mTc-TOC) somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (SRS) in clinical practice. MATERIAL/METHODS One hundred seventeen patients were divided into 6 groups: 1, initial detection and localization of suspected neuroendocrine tumor (NET); 2, tumor staging before therapy; 3, staging of NET of(More)
BACKGROUND In the recent literature there is no consensus regarding the relationships between crossed cerebellar diaschisis (CCD) with the primary lesion size, severity or location. Thus, the aim of the present study was to investigate relationship between the size and severity of cerebral lesions and CCD in patients with chronic stroke, using voxel-based(More)
