This guideline was developed by the SNM to describe important factors common to most nuclear medicine procedures. It is intended to guide nuclear medicine practitioners in establishing policies and procedures for the use of radiopharmaceuticals in clinical practice. This guideline is intended to be concordant with the regulations of the Nuclear Regulatory(More)
The effects of liquid versus solid diet on human colonic transit were investigated, and transit following cecal instillation of tracer was compared with transit following instillation in the proximal jejunum. In a randomized cross-over, single-blind fashion, 6 normal volunteers ingesting either normal solid foods or a liquid diet were studied using colonic(More)
To compare the efficacy of Tc-99m HMDP and Tc-99m MDP to define skeletal lesions, 28 adult patients were examined in a double-blind, randomized, crossover study. Each patient was imaged with both agents over a period of 7-14 days. Both quantitative and qualitative evaluations were performed on the resulting images. Both agents detected the same number of(More)
The effect of methotrexate (MTX) treatment upon Ga-67 distribution was investigated. Tumor bearing mice were injected with Ga-67 citrate at varying time intervals following MTX treatment administered either as a single dose or in multiple doses. Altered Ga-67 distribution was observed following MTX therapy, the general pattern showing decreased levels in(More)
The physics, instrumentation, and general aspects of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) imaging are discussed. NMR images are constructed from magnetic signals emitted by certain atomic nuclei when they are subjected to simultaneously applied magnetic fields and externally generated radiofrequency (r.f.) energy. Hydrogen (the nucleus of which is a single(More)
A clinical comparison between a new bone seeking radiopharmaceutical, Tc-99m hydroxymethylene diphosphonate (TcHMDP) and the standard agent, Tc-99m pyrophosphate (TcPPi), was performed in 18 patients with acute myocardial infarction. Each patient was imaged initially with either TcHMDP or TcPPi, and imaged 24 hr later with the other tracer. All 18 patients(More)
Initial clinical trials using strontium-89 (Sr-89) chloride for the treatment of painful skeletal metastases have observed minimal or no hematological depression secondary to the radiostrontium. A patient with marked bone marrow depression temporally related to the administration of the Sr-89 is reported, and the need for close hematological monitoring is(More)
Paramagnetic pharmaceuticals ( magnetopharmaceuticals ) that are suitably distributed into specific organ systems or diseased sites might be clinically useful for tissue contrast enhancement in nuclear magnetic resonance images. To determine whether an insoluble magnetopharmaceutical might be useful in such service, we investigated the effect of a colloidal(More)
