OBJECTIVES To evaluate positron emission tomography with C11-acetate as a method for detecting and localizing prostate cancer recurrence. No technique for localizing and detecting prostate cancer recurrence after biochemical relapse available today is sensitive enough to localize recurrence at a stage at which salvage radiotherapy is still curative.

5 patients were revised with impaction of morselized frozen allograft and a cemented total hip arthroplasty (THA) because of loosening and osteolysis of a primary hip arthroplasty. Plain film radiographs of the stems showed stable implants in all patients 15-24 months after surgery. The clinical results were good. We used: 1) Positron Emission Tomography(More)
UNLABELLED Cardiac amyloidosis is a differential diagnosis in heart failure and is associated with high mortality. There is currently no noninvasive imaging test available for specific diagnosis. N-[methyl-(11)C]2-(4'-methylamino-phenyl)-6-hydroxybenzothiazole ((11)C-PIB) PET is used in the evaluation of brain amyloidosis. We evaluated the potential use of(More)
Parenteral iron-polysaccharide complexes are increasingly applied. The pharmacokinetics of iron sucrose have been assessed by our group using positron emission tomography (PET). A single intravenous injection of 100 mg iron as iron (III) hydroxide-polymaltose complex, labelled with a tracer in the form of 52Fe/59Fe, was similarly assessed in six patients(More)
UNLABELLED Clinical PET of apoptosis may have substantial value in advancing patient care. We report here the first-in-humans study with (18)F-labeled 2-(5-fluoropentyl)-2-methyl malonic acid ((18)F-ML-10), a small-molecule PET tracer for apoptosis. Presented are the dosimetry, biodistribution, stability, and safety profiles of this PET tracer in healthy(More)
UNLABELLED (68)Ga-DOTATOC and (68)Ga-DOTATATE are 2 radiolabeled somatostatin analogs for in vivo diagnosis of neuroendocrine tumors with PET. The aim of the present work was to measure their comparative biodistribution and radiation dosimetry. METHODS Ten patients diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumors were included. Each patient underwent a 45-min dynamic(More)
UNLABELLED Anti-1-amino-3-(18)F-fluorocyclobutane-1-carboxylic acid ((18)F-FACBC) is a synthetic amino acid analog PET radiotracer undergoing clinical trials for the evaluation of prostate and other cancers. We aimed to describe common physiologic uptake patterns, incidental findings, and variants in patients who had undergone (18)F-FACBC PET. METHODS(More)
UNLABELLED Quantitative imaging and dosimetry are crucial for individualized treatment during peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT). (177)Lu-DOTATATE and (68)Ga-DOTATOC/(68)Ga-DOTATATE are used, respectively, for PRRT and PET examinations targeting somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) in patients affected by neuroendocrine tumors. The aim of the study was(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of whole-body diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) and (18)F-NaF PET/CT for detection of bone metastases in patients with high-risk prostate cancer. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Both patient- and lesion-based analyses were performed on 49 consecutive patients (median age, 67 years; age range, 57-80 years)(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE One of the main concerns regarding resurfacing arthroplasty is the viability of the remaining part of the femoral head, and the postoperative risk of a femoral neck fracture or collapse. In contrast to radiographic methods, positron emission tomography using the radiotracer [18F]-fluoride (Fluoride-PET) enables us to visualize the(More)
