UNLABELLED Previous research using functional transcranial Doppler sonography showed that blood flow velocity in the anterior cerebral artery is significantly less in patients with Huntington's disease (HD) than in healthy volunteers while they are completing mazes. The current research used SPECT to study regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) in patients(More)
Chronic traumatic brain injury (CTBI) is associated with contact sports such as boxing. CTBI results from repetitive blows to the head rather than from a single impact. CTBI individuals present with motor symptoms (incoordination, spasticity, parkinsonism), cognitive impairment (executive dysfunction, memory deficits) and neuropsychiatric symptoms(More)
UNLABELLED Previous study of the bleomycin-induced lung injury model suggested that (111)In-labeled antirat intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (aICAM-1) might be a useful acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) diagnostic agent. We further investigated the ability of (111)In-aICAM-1 to detect inflammation in another ARDS lung injury model. METHODS(More)
UNLABELLED We have investigated whether an (111)In-labeled mouse monoclonal antibody to rat intercellular adhesion molecule-1 ((111)In*aICAM-1) could detect lung injury early in rats treated with bleomycin. METHODS Rats received an intravenous injection of either (111)In*aICAM-1 or (111)In-labeled normal mouse IgG ((111)In*nmIgG) and were imaged and(More)
PURPOSE The initial or first clinical presentation of altered sensation of smell is directly linked to the degree of impaired sensitivity. We took the opportunity to examine normal and nonspecific MRI findings in 6 patients with known anosmia after traumatic brain injury with perfusion SPECT brain imaging. MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients included those with(More)
Ovarian cancer has the lowest survival rate of the gynecologic cancers because it is predominantly diagnosed in the late stages due to the lack of reliable symptoms and efficacious screening techniques. A novel hybrid intraoperative probe has been developed and evaluated for its potential role in detecting and characterizing ovarian tissue. The hybrid(More)
OBJECTIVES Lyme disease is an infectious disease that frequently involves the central nervous system, leading to cognitive and/or mood dysfunction. The basis for these symptoms remains to be defined but may be the result of a vasculitis or metabolic abnormality secondary to the infection. SPECT scans of the brain might provide an objective measure of(More)
A 45-year-old man, seropositive for hepatitis C, was examined because his liver was palpable well below the costal margin. A CT examination revealed multiple nodules within the liver and also several sites of ectopic tissue. The patient had a splenectomy 25 years before. A radiocolloid study showed uptake, consistent with splenosis, in the thorax, abdomen,(More)
