Dobutamine magnetic resonance imaging predicts contractile recovery of chronically dysfunctional myocardium after successful revascularization.
OBJECTIVES This study sought to evaluate whether myocardial viability, as assessed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), reliably predicts postrevascularization left ventricular (LV) recovery. Expand

Comparison of low-dose dobutamine-gradient-echo magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography with [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose in patients with chronic coronary artery disease. A functional
BACKGROUND There have been conflicting reports of whether substantial myocardial thinning alone as an indirect sign of myocardial scarring is sufficient evidence to exclude the presence of viableExpand

Direct comparison of spatially normalized PET and SPECT scans in Alzheimer's disease.
UNLABELLED Hexamethylpropyleneamine oxime (HMPAO) SPECT and 18F-FDG PET depict similar aspects of perfusion and metabolic abnormalities in Alzheimer's disease (AD), but the correspondence betweenExpand

Cost-effectiveness of FDG-PET for the management of solitary pulmonary nodules: a decision analysis based on cost reimbursement in Germany
Abstract. Management of solitary pulmonary nodules (SPNs) of up to 3 cm was modelled on decision analysis comparing "wait and watch", transthoracic needle biopsy (TNB), exploratory surgery andExpand

Treatment of refractory Hodgkin's lymphoma patients with an iodine-131-labeled murine anti-CD30 monoclonal antibody.
PURPOSE Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) has been demonstrated to be a good target for immunotherapy since lymphocyte activation markers such as CD30 are expressed in high numbers on the malignant cells.Expand

Positron emission tomography has a high negative predictive value for progression or early relapse for patients with residual disease after first-line chemotherapy in advanced-stage Hodgkin lymphoma.
In the HD15 trial of the German Hodgkin Study Group, the negative predictive value (NPV) of positron emission tomography (PET) using [(18)F]-fluorodeoxyglucose in advanced-stage Hodgkin lymphoma (HL)Expand
