Despite vast worldwide experience in the use of 131I for treating Graves' disease (GD), no consensus of opinion exists concerning the optimal method of dose calculation. In one of the most popular equations, the administered (131)I dose is directly proportional to the estimated thyroid gland volume and inversely proportional to the measured 24-hour(More)
The role of nuclear medicine physicians in the multidisciplinary team for the management of patients with prostate cancer has been restricted because of a lack of available tools. The only drugs approved to relieve pain related to bone metastases were β-emitting radiopharmaceuticals. These drugs did not prove to prolong survival when used as single agent(More)
BACKGROUND Bone metastases are responsible for most of the morbidity associated with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). Bone-seeking radiopharmaceuticals have been approved for palliation of painful skeletal metastases, but their clinical use is limited by concerns of toxicities both when administered alone and especially when combined(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to optimize a protocol for radioguided biopsy of the sentinel lymph node (SLN) in patients with melanoma. The protocol was based on a combination of ex vivo counting of the nodes detected intraoperatively and analysis of the harvested nodes by hematoxylin and eosin staining plus immunohistochemistry (conventional(More)
AIM We explored the feasibility of radioguided occult lesion localization (ROLL) for radioiodine-negative cervical recurrences from differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). METHODS The procedure was performed in 32 patients (3 patients being operated twice); 15/32 patients had had multiple prior lymph node dissections ("hostile" anatomy). 99mTc-albumin(More)
Bone metastases are responsible for most of the morbidity and mortality associated with solid malignant tumors, occurring in about 65-70% of the patients with advanced breast or prostate cancer. The pathophysiology of skeletal metastasis is a complex process that involves several biologic process leading to cellular invasion, adhesions and stimulation of(More)
AIM Redistribution of convective ventilation, the leading disorder in airway obstruction, is a target of pharmacological and mechanical ventilation treatments for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Convective ventilation is visualized by ventilation scintigraphy using radiolabeled aerosol particles that should ideally deposit in the(More)
In this paper we report on a successful management of multiple bone metastases from differentiated thyroid cancer. In 2007, a 75-year-old female patient, previously referred for thyroidectomy for multinodular goiter, underwent surgical removal of a lumbar mass with histological findings of metastasis from well differentiated thyroid cancer. After surgery,(More)
The onset and the clinical progression of Huntington Disease (HD) is influenced by several events prompted by a genetic mutation that affects several organs tissues including different regions of the brain. In the last decades years, Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) helped to deepen the knowledge of neurodegenerative(More)
