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 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 Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) is a transient cardiomyopathy of unknown origin, clinically manifesting as acute coronary syndrome (ACS). This syndrome mainly occurs in postmenopausal women and has a temporary relationship with emotional or physical stress. CASE REPORT TTS occurred in 46-year-old female patient on the first day after renal(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the changes in hemodynamic function and myocardial perfusion of the left ventricle occurring in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM1) 47-49 months after the first assessment. We have studied 20 asymptomatic patients, five females and 15 males, aged 22-46 y. The patients were under intensive insulin treatment 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)
AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of iodine-123 metaiodobenzylguanidine (I-mIBG) myocardial scintigraphy in the detection of cardiac sympathetic neuropathy in haemodialysed patients without relevant cardiovascular symptoms. MATERIALS AND METHODS A group of 20 haemodialysed patients were examined. The stress/rest myocardial perfusion(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)
