Procedure guidelines for scintigraphic detection of sentinel node in breast cancer are presented.
UNLABELLED This study validates a new quantitative myocardial perfusion SPECT software. METHODS The processing starts with the extraction of the morphologic skeleton of the left ventricular myocardium from reconstructed transverse sections. Fuzzy logic is used to decide whether a pixel belongs to the myocardium and any perfusion defect is filled according… (More)
Pain from anticancer drugs-induced neuropathies is difficult to treat and can significantly alter the patient's quality of life. These neuropathies are considered relatively resistant to conventional analgesic drugs (opioids). Opioids are also P-glycoprotein substrates and it has been demonstrated that the P-glycoprotein is linked to the integrity of… (More)
In a multicenter randomized double-blind trial comparing heparin and a new fibrinolytic agent, anisoylated plasminogen streptokinase activator complex (APSAC), 231 patients presenting with a less than 5 hr acute myocardial infarction underwent a contrast angiography (CA) before the end of the first week of admission, and radionuclide cardiac blood-pool… (More)
