The aim of this study was to compare the maximum-slope (MS) and dual-input one-compartment model (DOCM) methods in hepatic perfusion computed tomography (CT). A total of 37 patients with known or suspected liver disease underwent single-location dynamic CT after arterial or venous bolus injection of contrast material. Perfusion CT images were created by the(More)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the role of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) in combination with T(1) and T(2) weighted MRI for the characterisation of renal carcinoma. The institutional review board approved the study protocols and waived informed consent from all of the patients. 47 patients (32 male and 15 female; age range, 21-85 years; median(More)
Infection is ubiquitous and a major cause of morbidity and mortality. The most reliable method for localizing infection requires radiolabeling autologous white blood cells ex vivo. A compound that can be injected directly into a patient and can selectively image infectious foci will eliminate the drawbacks. The resolution of infection is associated with(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has variable 18F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (18F-FDG) uptake and the relationship between 18F-FDG uptake with the expression of glucose transporters (Gluts) and hexokinase II (HK-II) has not been extensively examined. Present study explored the role of 18F-FDG positron emission tomography (PET) as a clinical significance and the(More)
Obesity is a risk factor for the development of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) but mechanisms mediating this association are unknown. While obesity is known to impair systemic blood vessel function, and predisposes to systemic vascular diseases, its effects on the pulmonary circulation are largely unknown. We hypothesized that the chronic low(More)
OBJECTIVE Clinical application of FDG-PET in head and neck cancer includes identification of metastases, unknown primary head and neck malignancy, or second primary carcinoma, and also recurrent tumor after treatment. In this study, the additional value of PET/CT fusion images over PET images alone was evaluated in patients with initial staging and follow(More)
The present study aimed to develop a monoclonal antibody (mAb)-based double functional probe for PET and near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) targeting CD20 and to cross validate the targeting efficacy of this dual functional probe. NuB2, anti CD20 mAb was conjugated with Alexa Fluor 750 and 64Cu through DOTA chelator. PET and NIRF imaging was carried out at(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is considered to be a major angiogenic factor responsible for the development of tumor vasculature. The aim of this study was to image VEGF expression with (64)Cu-labeled anti-VEGF antibody (bevacizumab) non-invasively, and to see whether or not the expression was correlated with tumor accumulation in colorectal(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of positron emission tomography (PET) with 18F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (18F-FDG) in the restaging of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) treated with radiofrequency ablation (RFA). This study was performed on 33 lesions in 24 patients with HCC. 18F-FDG PET and computed tomography (CT) studies were performed in all(More)
We report the case of 58-year-old man with pulmonary artery intimal sarcoma. He initially presented with cough, right-sided chest pain, and shortness of breath. Although the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism had been considered, chest radiograph and pulmonary perfusion scintigraphy showed a mass in the right hilum and no perfusion in the right lung.(More)
