OBJECTIVES:We sought to evaluate colonic gas accommodation, ileocecal competence, and colonic clearance in subgroups patients with abdominal bloating.METHODS:Thirty-six patients complaining of abdominal bloating (12 constipation-predominant irritable bowel syndrome (IBS-C), 12 diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome (IBS-D), and 12 functional(More)
OBJECTIVES In patients with depressed systolic function after recent acute myocardial infarction (AMI), improvement of global left ventricular (LV) systolic function using low-dose dobutamine (LDD) may be influenced by factors different from those observed in patients with chronic ischemic cardiomyopathy (CIC). The aim of this study was to analyze, by means(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the results for sentinel node biopsy (SNB) in patients with multifocal breast cancer (MBC) in comparison to in those with unifocal breast cancer (UBC). PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 1535 prospective SNB (174 on patients with MBC) were performed at 9 hospitals. In most patients, Tc-99m albumin colloids were injected(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) and vascular dementia (VaD) are the most common cause of dementia. Cerebral ischemia is a major risk factor for development of dementia. (123)I-FP-CIT SPECT (DaTScan) is a complementary tool in the differential diagnoses of patients with incomplete or uncertain Parkinsonism. Additional application of DaTScan enables the(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES To investigate negative contractile responses in the left ventricle during low-dose dobutamine (LDD) gated single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy. METHODS Sixty-eight consecutive patients (mean age, 60 + or - 11 years; 7 male) with ischemic cardiomyopathy (i.e., left(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to use low-dose dobutamine (LDD) gated single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) to evaluate segmental thickening of the left ventricle (LV) and its relationship with changes in ejection fraction (EF) and ventricular volumes in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy. METHODS This(More)
INTRODUCTION Post-surgical oedema of the femoropopliteal segment is a frequent complication, unrelated to the severity of the previous symptoms or changes in subsequent distal arterial pressure. The aim of the study is to assess whether the oedema present in femoropopliteal bypass patients is of lymphatic origin, and the possible influence of the prosthesis(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Parkinsonism is a group of neurological disorders characterized by extrapiramidal signs. Often, the differential diagnosis between parkinsonism, essential tremor and drug-induced parkinsonism is difficult. The aim of the study was to evaluate the utility of (123I)-FP-CIT SPECT in patients with movement disorders. PATIENTS AND(More)
AIM To compare diagnostic accuracy of Ventilation/Perfusion (V/P) single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) combined with simultaneous full-dose CT with a hybrid SPECT/CT scanner versus planar ventilation/perfusion (V/P) SPECT and CT angiography (CTA) in patients suspected with acute pulmonary embolism (PE). METHODS Between 2009 and 2011,(More)
