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)
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 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)
The purpose of the study was to determine the incidence of vesicoureteric reflux (VUR), renal scars and hypertension in asymptomatic siblings of children with VUR. The study comprised 105 siblings of patients with VUR. Their age ranged from 4 months to 6.3 years. All had a direct radionuclide voiding cystography (DRVC) performed, and VUR was detected in 47(More)
A Phase I study in 12 patients with renal disorders compared the simultaneous clearances of 99mTc-labeled mercaptoacetyltriglycine (MAG3) and 131I-labeled orthoiodohippurate (OIH). The ratio of MAG3 to OIH clearance was 0.61 +/- 0.08 as a result of its smaller volume of distribution, ratio 0.65 +/- 0.09, for the clearance half-lives were similar, ratio 1.09(More)
Renal parenchymal defects (RPD) – scars, hypoplasia/dyspalsia – in children are a major risk factor for chronic renal failure. Most authors would agree that RPD should be detected and followed by a 99mTc-dimercaptosuccinic acid renal scan (DMSA), as ultrasonography (US) does not seem to be sensitive enough for this purpose. However, it might well be that(More)
To determine when 18F-choline PET/CT can truly identify local recurrence of prostate cancer. 1031 patients from 3 European centers underwent 18F-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 the median PSA level(More)
The purpose of this guideline is to offer to the nuclear medicine team a framework, which could prove helpful in daily practice. This guideline contains information related to the indications, acquisition, processing and interpretation of Indirect radioisotope cystography (IRC). The present document is inspired by the desire of the EANM and the American(More)
These guidelines on the use of radioiodinated 99mTc-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)
