PURPOSE No data is available on the different FDG PET and CT findings in the lymph nodes (LN) of patients with HIV and tuberculosis (TB) who respond compared with those who do not respond to anti-TB treatment by 4 months after initiation of TB treatment. These findings were the focus of our study. METHODS PET/CT scans performed at 4 months after(More)
The aim of this study was to assess whether there is an association between changes in the heart rate and blood pressure after dipyridamole stress and abnormal scan findings detected with gated technetium-99m methoxy isobutylisonitrile (99mTc-MIBI) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI). A total of 200 consecutive patients with known or suspected coronary(More)
A search for a very-high-energy (VHE; ≥100  GeV) γ-ray signal from self-annihilating particle dark matter (DM) is performed towards a region of projected distance r∼45-150  pc from the Galactic center. The background-subtracted γ-ray spectrum measured with the High Energy Stereoscopic System (H.E.S.S.) γ-ray instrument in the energy range between 300 GeV(More)
UNLABELLED We aimed to assess the additional value of SPECT/CT over planar lymphoscintigraphy (PI) in sentinel node (SN) detection in malignancies with different lymphatic drainage such as breast cancer, melanoma, and pelvic tumors. METHODS From 2010 to 2013, 1,508 patients were recruited in a multicenter study: 1,182 breast cancer, 262 melanoma, and 64(More)
UNLABELLED We sought to determine whether PET/CT imaging with (68)Ga-citrate could be of value in distinguishing benign from malignant lung pathology in a setting with a high prevalence of granulomatous diseases. METHODS Thirty-six consecutive patients with indeterminate lung lesions prospectively underwent dual time point (60 and 120 min) (68)Ga-citrate(More)
To report on imaging findings using 68Ga-PSMA-HBED-CC PET in a series of 19 breast carcinoma patients. 68Ga-PSMA-HBED-CC PET imaging results obtained were compared to routinely performed staging examinations and analyzed as to lesion location and progesterone receptor status. Out of 81 tumor lesions identified, 84% were identified on 68Ga-PSMA-HBED-CC PET.(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW To review the main applications, advantages and limitations of ¹⁸F-FDG PET and PET/computed tomography (CT), and some other tracers in imaging of tuberculosis (TB). RECENT FINDINGS In pulmonary TB, granulomas typically demonstrate increased ¹⁸F-FDG uptake, and areas of active TB can be differentiated from old or inactive disease by dual(More)
Single-photon emission computed tomography-computed tomography (SPECT-CT) allows for physiological and anatomical co-registration in sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping and offers additional benefits over conventional planar imaging. However, the clinical relevance when considering added costs and radiation burden of these reported benefits remains somewhat(More)
Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), a type II glycoprotein, is highly expressed in almost all prostate cancers. By playing such a universal role in the disease, PSMA provides a target for diagnostic imaging of prostate cancer using positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT). The PSMA-targeting ligand Glu-NH-CO-NH-Lys-(Ahx)-HBED-CC(More)
