Breast cancer is an international public health concern in which an optimal treatment plan requires a precise staging. Both MRI and PET imaging techniques have made significant progress in the last decades with constant improvements that made both modalities clinically relevant in several stages of breast cancer management and follow-up. On one hand,(More)
BACKGROUND Gait impairment is common in parkinsonian syndromes but not specific to striatonigral dysfunction. The relationship between the dopaminergic system and gait parameters is poorly understood. This cross-sectional study aimed to determine if gait measures are related to the striatal dopamine transporters distribution using [(123)I]FP-CIT SPECT in(More)
We report the case of a 56-year-old male with bilateral total knee prostheses suffering from bilateral knee pain mainly on the right side and referred for bone scintigraphy. The medical history of the patient revealed an opening wedge high tibial osteotomy performed nine years earlier, with insertion of two blocks of ceramic made of hydroxyapatite and(More)
PET/MRI tomographs represent the latest development in hybrid molecular imaging, opening new perspectives for clinical and research applications and attracting a large interest among the medical community. This new hybrid modality is expected to play a pivotal role in a number of clinical applications and among these the assessment of neurodegenerative(More)
Neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA) is a group of rare genetic neurological disorders characterized by iron deposits in the basal ganglia. Apart from the iron accumulation identified on MRI, the role of imaging modalities is limited [1]. Here we present the metabolic findings in a 45-year-old man with NBIA. After a 14year history of(More)
We present a Tc pertechnetate scintigraphy performed in a 64-year-old woman to investigate a mediastinal cystic mass in search of residual gastric mucosa after gastrectomy. She had a history of esophagectomy and gastric pull-up for esophageal cancer. Postoperative leakage necessitated ablation of the gastric pull-up and reconstruction using part of the(More)
