This retrospective study is designed to evaluate the diagnostic value of semi-quantitative parameters of salivary gland scintigraphy (SGS) in Sjögren's syndrome (SS) and explore the relationship between SGS parameters and salivary gland histopathologic manifestations. SGS and labial salivary gland biopsy were performed on 95 SS patients and 36 healthy(More)
AIM To investigate the radiological findings of head and neck radiation-induced sarcomas (RISs) following radiotherapy for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-nine patients with RISs were identified. Imaging characteristics on computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), including lesion location, extent, size,(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To date, there has been no report on the salivary gland functional outcomes after sialendoscopic surgery. The purpose of this study is to evaluate salivary gland functional recovery after sialendoscopic management of obstructive salivary gland disease. STUDY DESIGN A prospective, self-control study. METHODS The present study was(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the clinical value of applying Tc-99m TRODAT-1 single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) of the dopamine transporter to evaluate disease severity in young patients with symptomatic or asymptomatic Wilson disease (WD). MATERIALS AND METHODS The evaluation of Tc-99m TRODAT-1 SPECT was performed in(More)
PURPOSE Tuberculosis is uncommon in the nasopharynx. The purpose of this study was to investigate the CT and MRI features of 36 cases of tuberculosis in this area. MATERIALS AND METHODS CT (n=15) and MRI (n=21) scans from 36 patients with histologically proved tuberculosis of the nasopharynx were reviewed by two experienced radiologists, paying particular(More)
The quantitative relationship between changes in portal vein pressure and the perfusion index was studied, and hepatocellular function was evaluated. A modified protocol of hepatobiliary dynamic scintigraphy with Tc-99m-labeled ethylene hepatobiliary iminodiacetic acid (EHIDA) was performed in 37 patients with hepatic cirrhosis and 12 healthy controls. In(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the clinical outcomes of laparoscopic comprehensive staging surgery in early stage ovarian cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Electronic literature searches were conducted in Embase, MEDLINE, Cochrane Library, China Biology Medicine, and Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure, and literature on laparoscopy versus laparotomy for(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the findings of Tc-99m pertechnetate salivary gland scintigraphy (SGS) can predict the outcome of sialoendoscopic intervention in patients with obstructive submaxillaritis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eleven patients with obstructive submaxillaritis were prospectively recruited. All patients underwent(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the influence of Chinese drug Dahuang Zhechong pill on the hepatocellular function. METHOD Thirty-seven patients with hepatocirrhosis and twelve normal controls were performed the hepatobiliary scintgraphy with Tc-99m labeled ethylene hepatobiliary iminodiacetic acid (99 mTc-EHIDA), and the biochemical examination of hepatic(More)
