The purpose of optimising the acquisition parameters in positron emission tomography is to improve the quality of the diagnostic images. Optimisation can be done by maximising the noise equivalent count rate (NECR) that in turn depends on the coincidence rate. For each bed position the scanner records coincidences and singles rates. For each patient, the(More)
La ricerca degli anticorpi anti-nucleo (ANA) in immunofluorescenza indiretta (IFI) su cellule HEp-2 rappresenta una tappa fondamentale nella diagnostica delle patologie autoimmuni. Riportiamo il caso di 5 pazienti, che all’IFI per la ricerca di ANA eseguita con kit Nova Lite™ HEp-2 (Inova Diagnostics, San Diego, CA), presentavano un pattern citoplasmatico(More)
A method for evaluating the thyroid uptake function, based on the work of De Garreta, Williams, Glass, Atkins, Higgins et al., was developed using 99mTc-pertechnetate and a scintillation camera connected to a minicomputer system. The method has the advantages of a single visit, a low-dose examination, and the reliability of a full automated technique. The(More)
The traditional ultrasound approach in the field of diabetic nephropathy provides only partial clinical information; moreover, the data obtained are merely descriptive, in particular regarding the involvement of the intrarenal arteries, which is however the area mainly involved. The aim of our study was to assess the data provided by Doppler ultrasound and(More)
Isoaminile (Peracon) has found in Italy a certain success as a substitute for hard narcotics. Three observations are reported in which five young adults have been intoxicated by the i.v. administration of the cough suppressant. On the basis of two opposed points of view suggested by the Literature to explain the compulsive abuse of this drug, the A. have(More)
Interventional radiology procedures have always been of particular concern because of the potential high dose to the workers. Special attention has recently been given to the lens dose: in 2011 the ICRP issued the recommendation 'Statement on Tissue Reactions' where a new limit of 20 mSv in a year, averaged over defined periods of 5 years, is given. Due to(More)

UNLABELLED The aim of our study was to analyze the ultrasound characteristics of carotid plaques in an outpatient population and to determine their implications for planning the ultrasound follow-up. MATERIALS AND METHODS We studied 747 consecutive outpatients (397 [53%] of whom were women) who underwent color Doppler sonography of the carotid arteries.(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in a population of type 2 diabetic patients (NIDDM) and its possible correlation with diabetic nephropathy (DN), diabetic retinopathy (DR) and also with some biochemical parameters of glomerular and tubular renal function. METHODS The study included a total(More)
