Infection imaging became widespread in 1971 with the release of 67Ga citrate. Multiphase skeletal scintigraphy and radiolabeled white blood cells (WBCs) have since become the most widespread clinically used agents for the imaging of infection. A wide variety of other radiolabeled probes are under investigation, based on antibodies, cytokines, assorted(More)
The postpneumonectomy FEV1 was predicted in 24 patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (FEV1 less than or equal to 2.0 L) and a lung mass using the quantitative lung scan (QLS) and lateral position test (LPT). Although a good correlation (r = .72, p = 0.0006) was found between the FEV1 predicted by QLS and LPT, there was more than 10(More)
BACKGROUND Chemotherapy for lymph nodes cancer is often composed of several drugs that are used in a treatment program. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to perform a cost-utility analysis of IEV regimen (ifosfamide, epirubicin and etoposide) versus ESHAP regimen (etoposide, methylprednisolone, high-dose cytarabine, and cisplatin) in patients with(More)
The results of seven laboratory tests of liver function, including spleen/liver activity ratios obtained by densitometric analysis of scans, are analyzed in 50 patients with proven Laennec's cirrhosis. In this series, the liver scan not only disclosed the liver gross anatomy and structural abnormality and established the best possible site for biopsy(More)
Lifestyle modifications, such as physical exercise and dietary supplements, are recommended as protective measures against some neurological disorders. We examined the effects of regular exercise combined with curcumin supplementation against lead-induced oxidative damage of the cerebellum in male rats. Experimental animals (n = 50) were randomly divided(More)
The greater sensitivity of skeletal imaging over radiography (93% vs. 50%) for the detection of early osteomyelitis is well known. The introduction of the three phase protocol has improved the specificity of skeletal imaging by eliminating various noninfectious entities; however, the occurrence of false-positive studies is not unusual. Four such cases have(More)
