UNLABELLED The objective of this study was to explore the ability of the initial Gleason score (GS) to predict the rate of detection of recurrent prostate cancer (PCa) with (18)F-choline PET/CT in a large cohort of patients. METHODS Data from 1,000 patients who had undergone (18)F-choline PET/CT because of biochemical evidence of relapse of PCa between(More)
The development of echo-enhancing agents has significantly improved the detection of the movement of fluid within the urinary tract by ultrasonography (US). The purpose of our study was to compare ultrasound voiding cystography (USVC) for the detection of vesicoureteric reflux (VUR) in children with direct radionuclide voiding cystography (DRVC).(More)
PURPOSE To determine when 18F-choline PET/CT can truly identify local recurrence of prostate cancer. METHODS 1031 patients from 3 European centers underwent (18)F-choline PET/CT (FCH PET/CT) for recurrent disease; 131 subjects (12.7%) showed a positive FCH uptake in the prostatic gland or prostatic fossa. Median age was 72 years (range 48-87 years), and(More)
These guidelines on the use of radioiodinated (99m)Tc-MIBG scintigraphy in children, which summarise the views of the Paediatric Committee of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine, provide a framework which may prove helpful to nuclear medicine teams in daily practice. They have been influenced by the conclusions of the "Consensus Guidelines for MIBG(More)
The purpose of this study was to establish the sensitivity of cyclic direct radionuclide cystography (RVC) in detecting vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) in infants and small children, and to compare it to the conventional (one cycle only) RVC. 428 patients (856 renal units) were admitted to the study from January 1991 through March 1992 and all had a cyclic RVC.(More)
Ischaemic heart disease is one of the world's most important causes of mortality, so improvements and rationalization of diagnostic procedures would be very useful. The four diagnostic levels consist of evaluation of signs and symptoms of the disease and ECG (electrocardiogram) at rest, sequential ECG testing during the controlled exercise, myocardial(More)
These guidelines, which summarise the views of the Paediatric Committee of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine, provide a framework which may prove helpful to nuclear medicine teams in daily practice. They contain information on the indications, acquisition, processing and interpretation of direct radioisotope cystography in children. The(More)
PURPOSE Primary hyperparathyroidism is a common endocrine disorder which is diagnosed biochemically and for which therapy is surgical. A prerequisite for minimally invasive surgery, which minimizes morbidity and cost, is accurate localization of the involved gland(s). The aim of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of (18)F-fluorocholine PET/CT for(More)

PURPOSE Rituximab was the first chimeric monoclonal antibody to be approved for treatment of indolent B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). It is directed against the CD20 antigen, which is expressed by 95% of B-cell NHLs. The aim of this study was to explore the possibility of radiolabelling rituximab with (99m)Tc for use as an imaging agent in NHL for(More)
