Nine sera with falsely elevated results in a TSH radioimmunoassay were studied. Sera dilution and gel filtration showed that the immunoreactive TSH was different from the standard and labeled TSH. It coeluted with the immunoglobulin fraction of the seru. Rabbit serum decreased or emphasized the artifact according to the dose. Falsely elevated results(More)
This case report describes the treatment of the bone metastases of a nonfunctioning sympathetic paraganglioma, with [131I]MIBG. After primary tumor excision and unsuccessful external radiotherapy, the patient received three therapeutic doses of [131I]MIBG, resulting in a reduction of the number and volume of metastases, and an improvement of the general(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the prognostic value of early brain scintigraphy in head injury in relation to long-term neuropsychological behavior. Twenty-four patients underwent technetium-99m (Tc-99m) ethyl cysteinate dimer single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) within 1 month of the trauma. Scintigraphic abnormalities were(More)
Fifty meta-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scintiscans were performed in three groups of medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) patients. Group 1 (n = 11) included treated patients with normal calcitonin levels; Group 2 (n = 24) included patients with elevated calcitonin levels due to sporadic and isolated MTC; Group 3 (n = 15) included patients with elevated calcitonin(More)
In order to investigate the mechanism of uptake of meta-iodobenzylguanidine (mIBG) by the adrenal glands, autoradiographic and pharmacologic studies were performed in mice and dogs receiving radioiodinated mIBG. In mice, on macroautoradiography of whole body sections 48 h after125I-mIBG, most of the radioactivity was focused in the adrenal glands. On(More)
BACKGROUND We have elaborated a new software called ACS designed for left ventricle 3-dimensional reconstruction and quantitative analysis of regional wall motion using gated blood-pool tomography (GBPS). This paper presents the principle and the validation of this software. METHODS AND RESULTS Blood pool tomography was reconstructed by filtered(More)
Imaging of the thoracic duct is usually performed by radiological lymphography. However, this procedure, which uses an oil based dye injected directly into the lymph channels, has some adverse effects. In this paper we note that lymphoscintigraphy, a physiological and non invasive method, may visualize thoracic duct abnormalities, and might be particularly(More)
UNLABELLED Our group has developed a new radiopharmaceutical, (123)I - N-(2-diethylaminoethyl)-2-iodobenzamide ((123)I-BZA2), a benzamide derivative able to bind to melanin pigment in melanoma cells. In a prospective and multicentric phase III clinical study, the value of (18)F-FDG PET/CT and (123)I-BZA2 scintigraphy was compared for melanoma staging. (More)
A prospective study is undertaken in order to demonstrate the ability of scintigraphy with a non compartmental analysis to quantitate the duodeno-gastric reflux. 24 patients have been examined, sitting in front of a gamma camera: 12 with an endoscopically proved reflux and 12 normal subjects or volunteers. About 15 min after an injection of 148 to 222 MBq(More)
Wrist and hand traumas represent most traumatic lesions. Any delay in treatment involves complications compromising the functional prognosis. We report typical examples illustrating the incremental diagnosis value of hybrid SPECT/CT compared with planar scintigraphy with semiquantitative analysis in the diagnosis of radiographic occult fractures of the(More)
