Positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) with 68Ga-PSMA is a non-invasive diagnostic technique to image prostate cancer with increased prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) expression. PSMA is a transmembrane protein present in all prostatic tissues. Increased PSMA expression is seen in several malignancies, although prostate cancer is(More)
AIM To assess the calcification process of the carotid plaque by (18)F-sodium fluoride PET/CT imaging. MATERIAL AND METHODS A prospectively designed study including 15 patients in whom an atheroma plaque was detected by contrast enhanced CT scan during a neurological work-up was performed. A total of 29 plaques, 19 asymptomatic and 10 symptomatic, were(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the bone scintigraphy (BS) findings and PET/CT scintigraphy with FDG (FDG PET/CT) in the detection of bone metastases in lung cancer. MATERIAL AND METHODS We studied 32 patients with lung cancer who underwent FDG PET/CT and BS in a period of 15.9±18.6 days. The results of both techniques were compared with the histology, where(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate the contribution of an early dynamic phase (DP) of the lymphoscintigraphy (LS) to the detection of the sentinel lymph node (SLN) in breast cancer. METHODS This prospective study included 164 breast lesions in 161 consecutive patients (160 women, mean age 57.5 years). Patients with tumor >5 cm, multicentric,(More)
Blue Rubber Bleb Nevus syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by distinctive cutaneous and gastrointestinal venous malformations that usually cause episodes of occult gastrointestinal haemorrhage and iron deficiency anaemia. We describe an 8-year-old girl who had multiple cutaneous venous malformations since birth. She also suffered from several episodes(More)
Current guidelines do not systematically recommend 18F-FDG PET/CT for breast cancer staging; and the recommendations and level of evidence supporting its use in different groups of patients vary among guidelines. This review summarizes the evidence about the role of 18F-FDG PET/CT in breast cancer staging and the therapeutic and prognostic impact(More)
