The purpose of the study was to determine the diagnostic impact of 131I-SPECT/CT imaging compared with conventional scintigraphic evaluation in the follow-up of patients with thyroid carcinoma. Seventy-one patients with thyroid carcinoma underwent concurrent 131I-SPECT/CT, using an integrated imaging system, at various stages of their disease in order to(More)
OBJECTIVES serious vascular injuries to the neck may be asymptomatic or masked by other life-threatening conditions. Angiography, the "gold standard" vascular imaging modality, is an invasive procedure. Moreover, it is time-consuming and thus may delay a needed vascular intervention. The results of screening angiography are negative in more than 80% of(More)
PURPOSE To assess the value of (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma as compared with PET and conventional imaging (CI) alone, and to assess the impact of PET/CT on further clinical management. METHODS AND MATERIALS Thirty-three patients with nasopharyngeal(More)
BACKGROUND To assess the value of positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) with 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) in patients with head and neck carcinoma as compared with PET and conventional imaging alone, and to assess the impact of PET/CT on further clinical management. STUDY DESIGN Prospective nonrandomized study. SETTING Ninety(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare findings on color-coded duplex ultrasound and CT angiography for grading internal carotid artery stenosis, and to investigate whether both these imaging modalities are necessary for an accurate diagnosis of carotid stenosis in the pre-surgical assessment of the internal carotid artery. PATIENTS AND(More)
OBJECTIVE The current study is aimed at assessing the possibility of a statistical relationship between fetal and maternal collecting system dilatation during pregnancy. STUDY DESIGN Two hundred thirty consecutive pregnant women and their fetuses (20 to 40 weeks' gestation) were simultaneously examined by ultrasonography. The renal collecting systems were(More)
Eosinophilic granuloma is a well-recognized form of Langerhans cell histiocytosis, most commonly involving the skull bones, usually with an excellent prognosis. Recurrent and difficult to recognize osteolytic lesions of the skull are encountered only rarely. A patient with recurrent eosinophilic granuloma of the skull is reported. In spite of appropriate(More)
OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were to assess the value of F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) in patients with carcinoma of the larynx as compared with PET and CT alone and to assess the impact of PET/CT on further clinical management. STUDY DESIGN This was a prospective, nonrandomized study. (More)
We present the case of a young patient with Ewing's sarcoma of the facial zygomatic area bones. This type of tumor in a very young child is a rare event and poses significant diagnostic and therapeutic challenges for the attending physician. In this case, the diagnosis was made by a computed tomography scan with subsequent histological confirmation. The(More)
