18F-FDG PET has been successfully evaluated in the management of Hodgkin’s lymphoma (HL) and the most recent international guidelines recommended 18F-FDG PET for initial staging and final therapeutic assessment. However, 18F-FDG PET diffuse bone marrow uptake (BMU) and splenic uptake (SU) are frequently observed at the initial imaging and remain difficult(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the early theoretical prediction of the 0+-0+ transition of 90Zr, 90Y-PET underwent only recently a growing interest for the development of imaging radioembolization of liver tumors. The aim of this work was to determine the minimum detectable activity (MDA) of 90Y by PET imaging and the impact of time-of-flight (TOF) reconstruction on(More)
Early therapy response assessment with metabolic imaging is potentially useful to determine prognosis in aggressive lymphoma and, thus, can guide first-line therapy. Forty-eight patients with aggressive lymphoma [24 Hodgkin’s disease (HD); 24 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL)] underwent fluoro-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) before(More)
In the past decade, several new antibody-based therapies – using either radiolabelled or unlabelled monoclonal antibodies – have become available for the treatment of patients with refractory or recurrent non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Unlabelled monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) kill lymphoma cells by activating host immune effector mechanisms, or by inducing(More)
BACKGROUND 18-F-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography ((18)FDG-PET) is useful in the detection of iodine-negative differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC). The aim of this prospective study was to assess therapeutic impact of (18)FDG-PET imaging using a PET/computed tomography (CT) system in patients with iodine-negative recurrence of DTC. (More)
AIM To assess the clinical performance of parameters of liquid-solid gastric emptying (GE) scintigraphy. METHODS Fifty-three controls and 476 patients underwent GE scintigraphy using a liquid-solid test meal (non-ulcer dyspepsia, n=180; gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, n=123; dyspepsia after anti-reflux surgery, n=29; diabetes mellitus, n=96; cystic(More)
Positron emission tomography using 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG-PET) has been successfully evaluated in the management of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).1-3 Histological transformation (HT) of indolent lymphoma is a dramatic event that occurs in 5-10% of the patients and carries a dismal prognosis.4,5 Previous studies prove that indolent lymphoma entities show(More)
The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the contribution of 18F-FDG PET to the clinical management and survival outcome of patients suspected of recurrent cervical carcinoma and in line with the hypothesis that early diagnosis of recurrent cervical cancer may improve overall survival. A total of 40 patients underwent conventional imaging (CI)(More)
Interim 2-[18F]fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG PET) has shown to be an accurate predictor of prognosis in Hodgkin’s lymphoma (HL). However, FDG PET response criteria are a matter of ongoing debate. The aim of this study was to confirm the prognostic value of interim PET/CT in HL patients treated with an interim response-adapted(More)
A pinhole collimator is routinely used to increase the resolution of scintigraphy. This prospective study was conducted to determine the interest of 99mTc-MIBI pinhole single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) for the preoperative localisation of parathyroid lesions in primary hyperparathyroidism. All patients underwent a neck ultrasonography (US),(More)
