A patient with a history of a jejunal carcinoid and resection of liver metastases underwent CT, MRI and FDG-PET as well as somatostatin receptor scintigraphy using 111In-pentetreotide during follow-up. Octreoscan demonstrated one extrahepatic abdominal lesion with pathologic uptake, while the other imaging modalities failed to show a corresponding(More)
Halothane and its metabolites cause liver damage by decreasing liver blood flow and generating free-radical species. Catechin suppresses lipid peroxidation and increases enzyme activity, therefore it seems to be capable of protecting liver parenchyma against the direct toxic effect of halothane. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of(More)
Liver ischaemia may lead to parenchymal damage depending on the duration of the ischaemia. Dimethylsulphoxide (DMSO), a well-known radical oxygen scavenger, is a protective agent against ischaemia/reperfusion injury. In this study we aimed to investigate the role of hepatobiliary scintigraphy (HBSc) in detecting the protective effect of DMSO. Eighteen(More)
The thickening of alveolar basement membrane is found in autopsies, along with microvascular pathologies, in Type 1 and 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). To detect the function and permeability of alveolar basement membrane, carbon monoxide diffusion capacity (DLCO) and technetium 99m-diethyltriaminepentaaceticacid ((99m)Tc-DTPA) aerosol scintigraphy methods can be(More)
Higher technetium-99m methoxyisobutylisonitrile (MIBI) uptake in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has been reported to be associated with a positive response to chemotherapy. It has previously been found that in tumour cells, P-glycoprotein (Pgp) expression is of importance for tracer uptake. However, some studies have indicated that Pgp expression does(More)
Medulloblastoma (MB) is a primitive neuroectodermal tumour constituting a grade IV brain malignancy. Early and correct detection of recurrence or metastasis is desirable for follow-up of patients in this entity. Frequent expression of somatostatin receptors by MB lesions facilitates functional tumour imaging by somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (SRS). To(More)
A patient with suspicion of a neuroendocrine tumor of the pancreas underwent a somatostatin receptor scintigraphy using 111In-Pentetreotide. 111In-pentetreotide scintigraphy showed discrete uptake of the radiotracer in the head of the pancreas and focal uptake in the right upper thyroid lobe. Tracer uptake in the 24h planar image was higher compared to the(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS We investigated the role of the electron microscopy and hepatobiliary scintigraphy in determining the effect of DMSO (dimethysulphoxide) and ischemia/reperfusion injury in the liver after the Pringle maneuver. METHODOLOGY Twenty-four rabbits were divided into the following groups; A: Control group, B: Pringle, C: 10 mg/kg DMSO, D: 1 g/kg(More)
A 93-year-old woman presented with a 3 ¥ 3cm ulcerous lesion on the lateral side of her right lower leg. Biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of malignant melanoma. PET/CT imaging was performed for staging of this high risk melanoma patient. The plasma glucose level of the patient was 93 mg/dl before the tracer injection. PET/CT whole-body imaging was performed(More)
