PURPOSE Administration of radioactive iodine to a pregnant woman for thyroid ablation has been shown to affect neonatal thyroid levels. Thus, there is a theoretical risk in affecting a neonate's thyroid level upon birth with prior administration of intravenous contrast containing iodine to a pregnant woman during a computed tomographic scan. However, there(More)
Apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a rare variant of HCM in the non-Japanese population (1% to 2%). Diagnostic dilemma occurs when this type of HCM is newly discovered in a patient previously diagnosed with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) secondary to hypertension.

PURPOSE The aim of this study was to assess the left ventricular (LV) remodeling response to chemotherapy in low-cardiac-risk women with newly diagnosed nonmetastatic breast cancer. Cardiotoxic effects of chemotherapy are an increasing concern. To effectively interpret cardiac imaging studies performed for screening purposes in patients undergoing cancer(More)
BACKGROUND FDG PET-CT plays a critical role in the management of head and neck cancer patients. After therapy, many patterns of altered physiologic FDG uptake have been recognized. In our institution, we noticed patterns of head and neck muscle uptake that were unique in the post-therapy scans of head and neck cancer patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS A(More)
