Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: T2 shortening in motor cortex at MR imaging.
PURPOSE To determine whether decreased signal intensity of the motor cortex (T2 shortening) at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is a useful finding for supporting the diagnosis of amyotrophic lateralExpand

Comparative value of brain perfusion SPECT and [123I]MIBG myocardial scintigraphy in distinguishing between dementia with Lewy bodies and Alzheimer’s disease
PurposeBoth decreased occipital perfusion on brain single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and reduction in cardiac 123I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) uptake are characteristic featuresExpand

Uptake of technetium-99m-tetrofosmin, technetium-99m-MIBI and thallium-201 in tumor cell lines.
UNLABELLED We investigated the kinetics, cellular uptake and intracellular distribution of 99mTc-tetrofosmin in tumor cell lines and compared them with those of 99mTc-MIBI and 201TI. METHODS AtExpand

The Role of 123I-Metaiodobenzylguanidine Myocardial Scintigraphy in the Diagnosis of Lewy Body Disease in Patients with Dementia in a Memory Clinic
Reduction in cardiac 123I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) uptake is a characteristic feature of Parkinson’s disease (PD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), and is useful in distinguishing them fromExpand

Prognostic significance of the tumor suppressor gene maspin in non-small cell lung cancer.
BACKGROUND Maspin is a serpin protease inhibitor, which is known to suppress tumor progression in breast cancer and to be regulated by wild-type p53. This study was performed to elucidate theExpand
