BACKGROUND Prostate carcinoma is linked to osteoblastic metastasis. We therefore investigated the value of bone-targeted consolidation therapy in selected patients with advanced androgen-independent carcinoma of the prostate. METHODS 103 patients received induction chemotherapy, consisting of ketoconazole and doxorubicin alternating with estramustine and(More)
UNLABELLED As SPECT/CT technology evolves, its applications and indications need to be evaluated clinically for more efficient and cost-effective use. This retrospective study evaluated the clinical value of simultaneously acquired (99m)Tc-sestamibi SPECT/CT versus conventional SPECT in diagnosing and locating parathyroid adenomas or hyperplasia in patients(More)
Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) plays an important role in angiogenesis and cancer progression. Since many tumor cells exhibit COX-2 expression, functional imaging of COX-2 expression using celebrex (CBX, a COX-2 inhibitor) may provide not only a non-invasive, reproducible, quantifiable alternative to biopsies, but it also greatly complements pharmacokinetic(More)
PURPOSE To assess the radiation dosimetry and biodistribution of (99m)Tc-labeled ethylene dicysteine deoxyglucose ((99m)Tc-EC-DG) in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS Serial whole-body scans were acquired 0, 2, 4, 6 and 24 h after injection of (99m)Tc-EC-DG (925 MBq) in seven NSCLC patients. Radiation dosimetry, blood clearance and(More)
Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) is a proliferative histiocytic disorder of unknown etiology, which is characterized by sinus histiocytosis with massive lymphadenopathy (1). In most cases, RDD has a benign course and treatment is not necessary. However, severe cases of RDD require treatment, and the treatment strategy is determined on the basis of the severity(More)
