The number of metastatic axillary nodes represents one of the most important prognostic factors in preoperative breast cancer patients. 99mTc-Tetrofosmin high resolution Pinhole (P)-SPECT was employed in 112 patients, 100 with breast cancer and 12 with benign mammary lesions, to ascertain axillary lymph node involvement. Axillary P-SPECT images were(More)
AIM We evaluated the usefulness of (99m)Tc-tetrofosmin axillary pinhole (P)-SPECT in breast cancer (BC) non palpable axillary lymph node metastasis detection compared with conventional planar and SPECT scintimammography. METHODS We studied prospectively 188 consecutive patients with suspected primary BC, negative at axillary clinical examination. Ten(More)
Little information is available on asymptomatic carriage of Cryptosporidium in immunocompetent and immunodeficient children. We prospectively studied a group of asymptomatic children, 78 immunocompetent and 50 immunodeficient, to document the incidence of asymptomatic carriage of cryptosporidiosis in such a population. We also investigated whether the(More)
Hydatidosis is particularly widespread in some geographic areas. Among these Sardinia presents one of the highest incidences. The authors examine the results obtained of 382 patients submitted to surgery between 1973 and 1989. The average age was 38.9 years. Liver involvement was observed in 215 cases, lung involvement in 167 cases, while localizations in(More)
