The Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound convened a panel of specialists from a variety of medical disciplines to come to a consensus on the management of thyroid nodules identified with thyroid ultrasonography (US), with particular focus on which nodules should be subjected to US-guided fine needle aspiration and which thyroid nodules need not be(More)
The term thyrotoxicosis refers to the clinical syndrome of increased systemic metabolism that results when the serum concentrations of free thyroxine, free triiodothyronine, or both are elevated. The term hyperthyroidism refers to overactivity of the thyroid gland with a resultant increase in thyroid hormone synthesis and release into the systemic(More)
Fifteen patients complaining of chronic heel pain underwent three-phase Tc-99m MDP bone scintigraphy. Ten patients demonstrated abnormal scan findings consistent with plantar fasciitis (PF) and had responded to conventional therapy. Two patients were found to have calcaneal stress fractures, and one patient demonstrated a calcaneal spur that required no(More)
The term "thyroiditis" refers to several syndromes of differing etiology. Chronic or Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT), an autoimmune disorder that is manifested by goiter and hypothyroidism, is by far the most common of these syndromes. Subacute thyroiditis (SAT) encompasses two distinct syndromes: subacute granulomatous thyroiditis (SAGT) and subacute(More)
Radionuclide imaging is often used in the diagnosis and work-up of a wide range of neoplasms, on the basis of the biologic behavior of the tumor. Neuroendocrine tumors are a subgroup of neoplasms that are generally small and slow growing, and consequently their identification with conventional anatomic imaging can be difficult. Depending on the physiologic(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To evaluate the utility of positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) for staging the neck in the preoperative setting by comparing it to both CT/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and pathologic staging. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective review. METHODS Seventy-one patients with initial diagnosis of head and neck squamous(More)
BACKGROUND For patients with metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma, there are no approved or established treatments beyond the 2nd line. A Phase Ib study of fractionated radioimmunotherapy was undertaken in this setting, administering (90)Y-clivatuzumab tetraxetan (yttrium-90-radiolabelled humanised antibody targeting pancreatic adenocarcinoma mucin) with or(More)
The efficacy of extended-release niacin (niacin ER) on lipoprotein subclasses was evaluated in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia using a proton nuclear magnetic resonance method. Paired plasma samples collected at baseline and after 12 weeks' treatment with niacin ER 1,000 (n = 21) or 2,000 (n = 20) mg/day or placebo (n = 19) were available for 60(More)
Dual tracer parathyroid imaging (DTPI) using Tc-99m and TI-201 has a reported sensitivity of 92% for the detection of parathyroid adenomas. A patient with biopsy-proven parathyroid adenoma as well as papillary thyroid carcinoma is presented. To date, this is the first such case ever to be reported and implies that DTPI, although a sensitive diagnostic(More)
