F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography imaging-assisted management of patients with severe left ventricular dysfunction and suspected coronary disease: a randomized, controlled trial
OBJECTIVES We conducted a randomized trial to assess the effectiveness of F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET)-assisted management in patients with severe ventricularExpand
Metabolic imaging of malignant pleural mesothelioma with fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography.
BACKGROUND The diagnosis of malignant mesothelioma is a challenging medical problem. CT often cannot differentiate between benign diffuse pleural thickening and malignant mesothelioma, whileExpand
Imaging gliomas with positron emission tomography and single-photon emission computed tomography.
Over the last two decades the large volume of research involving various brain tracers has shed invaluable light on the pathophysiology of cerebral neoplasms. Yet the question remains as to how bestExpand
Image-derived input function in dynamic human PET/CT: methodology and validation with 11C-acetate and 18F-fluorothioheptadecanoic acid in muscle and 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose in brain
PurposeDespite current advances in PET/CT systems, blood sampling still remains the standard method to obtain the radiotracer input function for tracer kinetic modelling. The purpose of this studyExpand
Respiratory gating for 3-dimensional PET of the thorax: feasibility and initial results.
UNLABELLED Respiratory motion may reduce the sensitivity of (18)F-FDG PET for the detection of small pulmonary nodules close to the base of the lungs. This motion also interferes with attempts to useExpand
Whole-body FDG-PET imaging in the management of patients with cancer.
Fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) imaging is increasingly used for the management of patients with cancer. The technique is now well accepted by most physicians as anExpand
Tumour volume and high grade tumour volume are the best predictors of pathologic stage and biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy.
INTRODUCTION Our goal was to examine to what extent tumour volume (TV) and percentage of high grade tumour volume (%HGTV) affect the rate of positive surgical margins and the rate of biochemicalExpand
18F-labeled difluoroestradiols: preparation and preclinical evaluation as estrogen receptor-binding radiopharmaceuticals
A-ring fluorination of estradiol (ES) at position 2 or 4 decreases the rate of metabolism by blocking the formation of catechol estrogens, one of the major metabolic pathways of ES. We postulate thatExpand
Bone marrow hypermetabolism on 18F-FDG PET as a survival prognostic factor in non-small cell lung cancer.
UNLABELLED PET is now widely used in the diagnosis and staging of lung cancer with (18)F-FDG. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the prognostic value of diffuse bone marrow hypermetabolismExpand
Theoretical modeling of yields for proton-induced reactions on natural and enriched molybdenum targets.
Recent acute shortage of medical radioisotopes prompted investigations into alternative methods of production and the use of a cyclotron and ¹⁰⁰Mo(p,2n)(99m)Tc reaction has been considered. In thisExpand
