PURPOSE The objective of this study was to compare the diagnostic value obtained using single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/spiral computed tomography (CT) with Tc-99m methylene-diphosphonate with that obtained using SPECT alone in patients with spinal lesions. METHODS This was a retrospective study of 56 patients who underwent planar(More)
OBJECTIVE This study explores a new, non-invasive imaging method for the specific diagnosis of insulinoma by providing an initial investigation of the use of 125I-labelled molecules of the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogue liraglutide for in vivo and in vitro small-animal SPECT/CT (single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography)(More)
Image-guided combined chemo-thermal therapy assists in optimizing treatment time, enhancing therapeutic efficiency, and circumventing side effects. In the present study, we developed a chemo-photothermal theranostic platform based on polydopamine (PDA)-coated gold nanorods (GNRs). The PDA coating was thin; however, it significantly suppressed the(More)
In this Letter, different from conventional pretargeting, an additional novel DNA polymer with multiple copies of a target was first designed to be administrated between the antitumor antibody, and the labeled effector served as an amplification pretargeting strategy. Two phosphorothioate DNA strands, a bridging and a target strand, were hybridized to form(More)
BACKGROUND Emission-transmission misalignment with single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)-computed tomography (CT) systems can impair attenuation correction (AC) in myocardial perfusion imaging. This study was performed to develop automated quality control (Auto-QC) to detect critical misalignment that can significantly impact AC. METHODS AND(More)
PURPOSE Although intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) is the second most common primary hepatic malignancy after hepatocellular carcinoma, there are limited data available on PET/CT imaging in ICC. This retrospective study analyzed the role of PET/CT imaging in the evaluation of ICC. METHODS FDG PET/CT findings were reviewed in 65 patients with(More)
Primary PSC in the lung is a rare malignant cancer that represents a particularly aggressive subtype of non-small cell lung carcinomas (NSCLC) containing sarcoma or sarcoma-like components with spindle or giant cell features. The medical literature referring to imaging characteristics by fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose (¹⁸F-FDG) positron emission(More)
BACKGROUND The use of Rb positron emission tomography (PET) for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD) has increased in recent years but the role of some of the traditional parameters used in SPECT for the diagnosis of CAD, such as transient ischaemic dilation index (TID) of the left ventricle, have not been validated in PET studies. METHODS AND(More)
Primary liver carcinosarcoma is a very rare, malignant neoplasm that is concomitantly composed of a mixture of sarcomatous and carcinomatous elements. In the present study, an initial staging FDG PET/CT showed intense FDG uptake in a patient with liver carcinosarcoma composed of hepatocellular carcinoma and rhabdomyosarcoma. Two months after surgical(More)
