We have studied prospectively 47 patients with CNS tumours including 16 meningiomas and 33 other tumours using combined111In-octreotide and99mTc-DTPA brain scintigraphy.111In-octreotide scintigraphy was used to image somatostatin receptors (SSR) and99mTc-DTPA scintigraphy was used to assess the integrity of the blood-brain barrier (BBB). A total of 32(More)
I-123-omega-heptadecanoic acid (HDA) was evaluated for myocardial scanning in 59 healthy volunteers and 133 patients, using a 7-pinhole collimator. Early (uptake) and late (retention) images were compared visually. Regional HDA elimination was also followed semiquantitatively based on the calculation of a retention-over-uptake ratio, R(phi), derived from(More)
BACKGROUND In previous studies, tropisetron has been shown to accelerate gastric emptying of a solid meal. However, it is uncertain whether other specific 5-hydroxytryptamine-3 receptor antagonists, such as ondansetron, also have a gastroprokinetic effect in humans. AIM To evaluate the effect of ondansetron on gastric half-emptying time (T1/2) of a solid(More)
We examined acute effects of intravenous diacetylmorphine (heroin) administration - which induces a characteristic biphasic response: A short rush-sensation associated with intense pleasurable feelings followed by a subjectively different period of euphoria on cerebral blood flow. This was assessed in nine male heroin dependent patients participating in a(More)
1. In a previous study in rats, an increased PAH clearance was found following chronic phenobarbitone administration. These results formed the basis for the present study in which fifteen healthy male volunteers were investigated and the parameters of liver microsomal enzyme activity and renal function were measured. 2. As parameters of liver microsomal(More)
More and more ventriculo-atrial shunt operations are being carried out on every type of hydrocephalus and in every age group. Thus, the need for a simple, repeatable and atraumatic examination of the shunt function is increasing. The examination method of Bueno, in which 99mTc-pertechnetate is injected into the shunt system, has been adapted for our use.(More)
During 1977, 246 hyperthyroid patients were seen in our departments, 140 (57%) with nonimmunogenic hyperthyroidism (NIH)--101 with a toxic adenoma (TA) and 39 with multifocal functional autonomy (MFA). All patients but one could be followed over 9 yr, 101 after 131I treatment (RIT), another 29 after surgery (S). Ten patients were left untreated. Thirty-four(More)
We report a case of a man presenting with a cervical malignant teratoma and a chondrosarcomatous rib metastasis. He was alive and free of recurrence five years and 10 months (= 70 months) after resection of the primary mass, followed by chemotherapy and subsequent resection of the rib tumor. This is the 35th patient reported in the literature and the first(More)
Four patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) achieved excellent improvement of their unilateral tremor by chronic deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the contralateral ventral intermediate (Vim) nucleus of the thalamus. Repeated measurements of cerebral blood flow were obtained 14 days apart off and on stimulation using 99mTc-ECD SPECT. Subjects were scanned at(More)
