UNLABELLED Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) is a major prognostic factor in coronary artery disease and may be computed by 99mTc-methoxyisobutyl isonitrile (MIBI) gated SPECT. However, 201Tl remains widely used for assessing myocardial perfusion and viability. Therefore, we evaluated the feasibility and accuracy of both 99mTc-MIBI and 201Tl gated(More)
The functional value of TurboFLASH MR imaging in the assessment of dynamic contrast enhancement and renal perfusion anomalies was evaluated in seven patients, who also underwent renal scintigraphy in baseline conditions. The basal renograms obtained from MAG-3 scintigraphy (mercapto acetyl triglycine, MAG3-S) and from Gd-DOTA-enhanced turboFLASH MRI were(More)
UNLABELLED Somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (SRS) has been used for the detection of gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) tumors. This study evaluates the clinical impact of SRS in GEP tumor detection and its therapeutic implications on patient management. METHODS We prospectively studied 160 patients with biologically and/or histologically proven GEP tumors.(More)
Liver metastases are common in gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors and significantly impair survival. Hepatic resection is the only potential curative treatment. The records of 41 consecutive patients undergoing exhaustive resection of liver-only endocrine metastases and followed between 1992 and 2006 were reviewed. Patient's outcome and diagnostic(More)
BACKGROUND To overcome some of the limitations imposed by planar imaging, we aimed to optimize the use of first harmonic Fourier phase analysis (FPA) in electrocardiography-gated blood-pool single photon emission computed tomography (GBPS) by comparing different quantitative, 3-dimensional methods. METHODS AND RESULTS Three groups of patients who(More)
BACKGROUND Reflux oesophagitis is considered a multifactorial disease, but the respective roles of the main factors involved in its pathophysiology have not been clearly established. AIMS To attempt to assign these roles by means of a multivariate logistic regression analysis of the main parameters associated with reflux oesophagitis. PATIENTS Eighty(More)
BACKGROUND The choice of imaging techniques in patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD) varies between countries, regions, and hospitals. This prospective, multicenter, comparative effectiveness study was designed to assess the relative accuracy of commonly used imaging techniques for identifying patients with significant CAD. METHODS AND(More)
We assessed the potential benefits of including systematic 18fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) for detecting tumour recurrence in a prospective randomised trial. Patients (N=130) who had undergone curative therapy were randomised to undergo either conventional (Con) or FDG-PET procedures during follow-up. The two groups were matched(More)
UNLABELLED Ciprofloxacin labeled with (99m)Tc specifically binds to various bacteria. Thus, it potentially constitutes a specific marker allowing discrimination between septic arthritis/osteomyelitis and aseptic osteoarticular diseases. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate such properties in patients with skeletal diseases. METHODS We(More)
BACKGROUND The mural thrombus of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) is involved in aneurysm progression via several interdependent biological processes including platelet activation. 99mTc-annexin V (ANX) is a scintigraphic tracer that binds to phosphatidylserine exposed on activated platelets and apoptotic cells. Here, we evaluated the potential of ANX(More)
