OBJECTIVE To determine the changes in intestinal permeability in liver cirrhosis and to investigate whether intestinal permeability relates to the stage and aetiology of cirrhosis or existence of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP). DESIGN A prospective study of intestinal permeability in patients with cirrhosis. SETTING Gastroenterology and Nuclear(More)
In this study, we investigated prospectively the diagnostic role of 99Tcm-MIBI for staging and for predicting the therapeutic response of stage IV neuroblastoma compared with 131I-MIBG imaging and 99Tcm-MDP bone scintigraphy. Nine patients (4 girls and 5 boys aged 1-7 years) with suspected or proven stage IV neuroblastoma were studied with 99Tcm-MIBI at(More)
Radionuclide scanning with tumour-seeking agents such as pentavalent technetium-99m dimercaptosuccinic acid [99mTc(V)-DMSA], thallium-201 and technetium-99m sestamibi (MIBI) has been reported to be useful in the detection of medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC). We undertook a study in 14 MTC patients to determine the comparative imaging potential of201Tl,(More)
PURPOSE This study evaluated the biodistribution of Tc-99m (V) DMSA in patients with superscans on bone imaging and defined its role in differentiating the underlying cause. METHODS Nine patients (five with metastatic and four with metabolic bone disease) with classical superscans were entered into the study. All patients had the necessary radiologic and(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to evaluate the role of gated myocardial perfusion SPECT (MPS) and to investigate whether only the invasive coronary angiography (CAG) is sufficient in the diagnosis of the coronary artery disease (CAD) in women. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty-four women (62±10 years) with known CAD were included in this study. They had echocardiography(More)
Bone scintigraphy has been shown to be sensitive in determining bone involvement in patients with malignancy, but it does not allow the assessment of bone marrow lesions in early disease. The aim of this study was to detect bone marrow invasion using 99Tcm-labelled monoclonal antigranulocyte antibody (AgMoAb) in patients with prostate carcinoma. We studied(More)
Wolfram syndrome-1 is a rare and severe autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disease characterized by diabetes mellitus (DM), optic atrophy, diabetes insipidus, and deafness. Poorly controlled type 1 DM increases the risk for thrombosis. However, coexistence of DM and hereditary thrombosis factors is rarely observed. Here we present the case of a(More)
