18F‐Fluorodeoxyglucose Uptake in Thyroid from Positron Emission Tomogram (PET) for Evaluation in Cancer Patients: High Prevalence of Malignancy in Thyroid PET Incidentaloma
The prevalence of incidental thyroid 18F‐fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake in positron emission tomogram (PET) scan for evaluation in cancer patients and the role of standard uptake value (SUV) measurement in differentiation of thyroid malignancy from benign disease are investigated. Expand
Coexistence of chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis is associated with lower recurrence rates in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma
The influence of coexistent chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis on prognosis in papillary thyroid carcinoma patients remains controversial and the association of co existed CLT with clinicopathological parameters is evaluated. Expand
Revised Korean Thyroid Association Management Guidelines for Patients with Thyroid Nodules and Thyroid Cancer

Exploratory Clinical Trial of (4S)-4-(3-[18F]fluoropropyl)-l-glutamate for Imaging xC− Transporter Using Positron Emission Tomography in Patients with Non–Small Cell Lung or Breast Cancer
[18F]FSPG seems to be a promising tracer with a relatively high cancer detection rate in patients with NSCLC and PET may assess xC− transporter activity in Patients with cancer. Expand
High radiochemical yield synthesis of 3'-deoxy-3'-[18F]fluorothymidine using (5'-O-dimethoxytrityl-2'-deoxy-3'-O-nosyl-beta-D-threo pentofuranosyl)thymine and its 3-N-BOC-protected analogue as a
After HPLC purification at neutral pH, the prepared 3'-deoxy-3'-[(18)F]fluorothymidine from 3'-O-nosyl thymidine derivative 3 or its pyrimidine ring N-BOC-protected analogue 5 achieved high radiochemical yields with radiochemical purities of >97%. Expand

There was a significant positive correlation between the numbers of resected malignant lymph nodes and the reduction in stimulated thyroglobulin level after reoperation, suggesting surgery is an effective option for managing locally recurrent/persistent PTC. Expand
Evaluation of Disease Activity Using F-18 FDG PET-CT in Patients With Takayasu Arteritis
The sensitivity of F-18 FDG PET-CT for detecting active disease was higher in patients with higher erythrocyte sedimentation rate values and the specificity was high, owing to the low sensitivity of the NIH criteria. Expand
Clinical features and prognostic model for extranasal NK/T‐cell lymphoma
The clinical features of extranodal natural killer (NK)/T‐cell lymphoma (ENKL) that originates in extranasal sites are less well defined than those of ENKL that originates in nasal sites. Therefore,Expand
[18F]3′-deoxy-3′-fluorothymidine PET for the diagnosis and grading of brain tumors
Findings indicate that FLT PET is useful for evaluating tumor grade and cellular proliferation in brain tumors and displayed high sensitivity and good contrast in evaluating brain lesions that showed similar or decreased uptake compared with normal gray matter on FDG PET. Expand
Dose-response relationship between probability of pathologic tumor control and glucose metabolic rate measured with FDG PET after preoperative chemoradiotherapy in locally advanced non-small-cell
PURPOSE To determine the dose-response relationship between the probability of tumor control on the basis of pathologic tumor response (pTCP) and the residual metabolic rate of glucose (MRglc) inExpand
