Two cases of successful detection of inflammatory foci using Tc-99m exametazime (HMPAO)-labeled leukocyte scintigraphy in premature infants were reported. Necrotizing enterocolitis was detected in a child with a body weight of 1.6 kg. Scintigraphy confirmed a neonatal osteomyelitis in the distal part of the leg of another patient weighing 2.2 kg. These 2(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this work was to introduce a new algorithm for image reconstruction in bone SPECT and to compare its performances with a commercially available standard OSEM and resolution recovery (RR) reconstruction. MATERIALS AND METHODS The algorithm was built applying the Lucy-Richardson deconvolution adn logarithmic image processing to the(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate three different techniques used for stereotactic positron emission tomography (PET) image definition: (1) PET imaging with external stereotactic radioactive markers, (2) PET imaging without external stereotactic markers and subsequent coregistration with stereotactically defined imaging modality(More)
18F-FDG PET/CT imaging is useful in patients with fever of unknown origin and can detect giant cell arteritis in extracranial large arteries. However, it is usually assumed that temporal arteries cannot be visualized with a PET/CT scanner due to their small diameter. Three patients with clinical symptoms of temporal arteritis were examined using a standard(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to determine the optimal image matrix and half-width of the Gaussian filter after iterative reconstruction of the PET image with point-spread function (PSF) and time-of-flight (TOF) correction, based on measuring the recovery coefficient (RC) curves. The measured RC curves were compared to those from an older system(More)
A statistics-based approach to comparison of planar scintigraphic images is introduced to provide additional information to subtraction method. The proposed procedure leads to parametric images with better noise properties allowing subsequent statistical analysis. An example of an application of the technique is given using parathyroid scintigrams. The(More)
