The recently published second edition of the WHO classification of thyroid tumours describes the diffuse sclerosing papillary carcinoma (DSPC) as a specific variant of papillary thyroid cancer (PC). Besides several histological hallmarks, this rare tumour is characterized by its occurrence in young individuals and is thought to have a less favourable(More)
In this article we investigate MEG correlates of syntactic violations in continuous speech. An early left anterior negativity (ELAN) has been reported in previous EEG studies and has been related to syntactic processing. We used Magnetic Field Tomography (MFT) to extract a 3D estimate of the current density distribution J, from MEG data recorded while(More)
[90Y]DOTA-dPhe1-Tyr3-octreotide ([90Y]-SMT487) has been suggested as a promising radiotherapeutic agent for somatostatin receptor-expressing tumours. In order to quantify the in vivo parameters of this compound and the radiation doses delivered to healthy organs, the analogue [86Y]DOTA-dPhe1-Tyr3-octreotide was synthesised and its uptake measured in baboons(More)
The aim of this retrospective study was to investigate the value of positron emission tomography (PET) with 2-18fluor-2-deoxy-glucose (FDG) in the follow-up of Hürthle cell thyroid cancer (HTC), a rare variant of thyroid malignancies. FDG-PET studies were performed in 17 patients with HTC. In subgroup A (n = 13) PET was initiated because of an elevated(More)
We investigated whether the brain-behavior relationship (BBR) between regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) as measured by positron emission tomography (PET) and individual accuracy in verbal working memory (WM) can be modulated by repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of the left or right middle frontal gyrus (MFG). Fourteen right-handed male(More)
Verbal working memory has been attributed to a left-dominant neuronal network, including parietal, temporal and prefrontal cortical areas. The current study was designed to evaluate the contribution of these brain regions to verbal working memory processes and to assess possible hemispheric asymmetry. The effect of repetitive transcranial stimulation (rTMS)(More)
Unilateral destruction of the substantia nigra by local application of 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) serves as an animal model for Parkinson's disease. In this study, the changes in neostriatal dopamine D2 receptor density were investigated with a small animal positron emission tomograph (PET) before and after 6-OHDA lesion. PET scans were performed in 14(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate whether pelvic lymph node metastases in patients with neoplasms of the bladder or prostate can be detected applying positron emission tomography with 2-[(18)F]-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG-PET). METHODS Eight patients with bladder cancer and 17 patients with prostate cancer were examined with FDG-PET before(More)
3-[123I]Iodo-α-methyl-L-tyrosine (IMT) is employed clinically as a tracer of amino acid transport in brain tumours using single-photon emission tomography (SPET). This study investigates the role of IMT SPET in the non-invasive histological grading and prognostic evaluation of cerebral gliomas. The files of patients investigated by IMT SPET in our clinic(More)
Competition between endogenous dopamine and a radioligand for postsynaptic dopamine D(2) receptor binding was examined in two groups of eight subjects each who had to read or write off a text, respectively, and in a control group. Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and the ligand [(123)I]iodobenzamide (IBZM) were used for in vivo imaging.(More)
