UNLABELLED (186)Re-1-hydroxyethylidene-1,1-diphosphonate (HEDP) is an attractive radiopharmaceutical for the treatment of bone pain arising from skeletal metastatic lesions. Currently, (186)Re-HEDP is most commonly used in European countries. The aim of this study was to investigate the palliative efficacy and adverse effects of (186)Re-HEDP in patients(More)
AIM To introduce the combination method of radiochemoembolization for the treatment of selected hepatic metastases. METHODS Twenty patients with biopsy proven hepatic metastases were selected from those who underwent transarterial radiochemoembolization, a novel combination protocol, between January 2009 and July 2010. Patients had different sources of(More)
INTRODUCTION Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) is a precise procedure for lymphatic staging in early breast cancer. In a valid SLNB procedure, axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) can be omitted in node- negative cases without compromising patient safety. In this study, detection rate, accuracy and false negative rate of SLNB for breast cancer was(More)
The diagnostic value of somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (SRS) in detecting tumors has been assessed in a number of studies. We present a 30-year-old female with a history of eight months cough and left shoulder pain. Radiologic evaluation showed pulmonary mass and hepatic lesions, which were pathologically diagnosed as neuroendocrine carcinoma.(More)
BACKGROUND Limited recent studies have demonstrated that 99mTc-UBI scan can be a helpful method in precise diagnosis of infection. In the current study, we aimed to investigate the diagnostic efficacy of 99mTc-UBI scan in detection of musculoskeletal infections. METHODS Fifty patients with suspected musculoskeletal infections (painful THA, TKA, implant(More)
The diagnostic usefulness of somatostatin receptor scintigraphy in the localization of tumors has been evaluated in several studies. Here, we present the case of a patient with a subserosal myoma diagnosed by (99m)Tc-labeled octreotide acetate scintigraphy. Oval and ring-shaped areas of hyperactivity in the pelvis were confirmed on MR imaging to be the(More)
Background. Bremsstrahlung (BS) imaging during radioembolization (RE) confirms the deposition of radiotracer in hepatic/extrahepatic tumors. The aim of this study is to demonstrate (32)P images and to optimize the imaging parameters. Materials and Methods. Thirty-nine patients with variable types of hepatic tumors, treated with the intra-arterial injection(More)
Osteosarcoma is the most frequent primary malignancy of bone, and usually metastasizes to the lung and bones, while other sites are rare. In most reported cases, soft tissue metastasis of osteosarcoma is unusual, and only develops in the advanced stages of the disease, especially following multiple recurrences. We present a patient with recently diagnosed(More)
BACKGROUND Because one of the major sites for metastasis of thyroid cancers is the lung, studying the pattern of pulmonary metastasis may provide useful information for the effective treatment of these patients. In this study, by assessing the metastasis pattern, we aimed to identify the factors that may affect prognosis and response to treatment in(More)
Left ventricle (LV) quantification in nuclear medicine images is a challenging task for myocardial perfusion scintigraphy. A hybrid method for left ventricle myocardial border extraction in SPECT datasets was developed and tested to automate LV ventriculography. Automatic segmentation of the LV in volumetric SPECT data was implemented using a variational(More)
