OBJECTIVES Thallium-201 is efficient for myocardial perfusion imaging, but leads to relatively high radiation exposure in patients. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficiency of low-dose thallium-201 imaging with cadmium-zinc-telluride (CZT) cameras with regular-dose thallium-201 imaging with conventional cameras. METHODS We prospectively(More)
PURPOSE OF THE REPORT Cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) solid-state detectors have been recently introduced in myocardial perfusion imaging. However, they had not been yet validated with thallium-201. This study compares the clinical performances of the CZT ultrafast camera GE DNM 530c with a conventional SPECT camera (CC) using thallium-201. MATERIALS AND(More)
OBJECTIVES Septal perfusion abnormalities are frequently observed in patients with left bundle branch block (LBBB). The aim of this study was to compare myocardial perfusion imaging obtained from ungated and diastolic thallium gated single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) images in patients with LBBB. METHODS Stress/rest SPECT was performed in(More)
A 26-year-old man with chronic terminal renal insufficiency under dialysis was referred in our institution for a checkup before kidney transplantation to ensure the absence of malignant neoplasm. The patient had a biological secondary hyperparathyroidism with highly elevated serum parathormon, and treatment with parathyroid surgery was planned before the(More)
We report our first experience of brain DaTSCAN SPECT imaging using cadmium-zinc-telluride gamma camera (CZT-GC) in 2 cases: a 64-year-old patient suffering from essential tremor and a 73-year-old patient presenting with atypical bilateral extrapyramidal syndrome. In both cases, 2 different acquisitions were performed and compared, using a double-head(More)
Fusariosis is an opportunistic infection, caused by a filamentous fungus, found on plants and in soil. The treatment of disseminated pattern, seen in immunocompromised patients with severe neutropenia, is difficult because of antifungal therapy resistance. A 12-year-old girl, who was diagnosed with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, developed multiple(More)
A 17-year-old adolescent girl was admitted with chronic arthralgia, Raynaud phenomenon, pericarditis, and evidences of chronic diffuse inflammation. F-FDG PET/CT scan was performed to search systemic vasculitis and showed diffuse moderate uptake in the kidneys. We suggested the existence of a nephritis, but the ultrasonography result was normal, and no(More)
A 70-year-old man underwent a thallium-201 brain SPECT in the work-up and characterization of a frontotemporal mass. SPECT images were performed on cadmium zinc telluride system during only 5 minutes and after the injection of only 2 mCi. Images demonstrated high thallium uptake in frontotemporal areas considered as a potential malignant tumor. Surgical(More)
