UNLABELLED We performed Tc-99m MAG3 dynamic renal scintigraphy followed by a SPECT/CT imaging to a 38-yr-old woman who had a fistula in the lower urinary tract after a gynecological operation for diagnostic purposes. After scintigraphy, CT and fusion images were evaluated, it was observed that the activity in the right lower quadrant was actually in the(More)
Wegener’s granulomatosis (WG) is a rare form of systemic vasculitis that primarily involves the small-to-medium sized vessels and affects both the kidneys and the upper and lower respiratory tract. In this case report, FDG PET/CT findings of bilateral hypermetabolic lung lesions that mimic malignancy in a patient with WG are presented. The hypermetabolic(More)
F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/CT is an important whole-body imaging tool in the oncology and widely utilized to stage and restage various malignancies. The findings of significant focal accumulation of FDG in the lung parenchyma in the absence of corresponding CT abnormalities are related to the lung microembolism and known as(More)
OBJECTIVE The target of radioiodine ablation therapy (RIAT) after complete tumor removal is the nontumoral remnant tissue. We aimed to evaluate sodium iodide symporter (NIS) expression in nontumoral thyroid tissue in differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) patients who have complete but delayed structural response (DSR) to RIAT after surgery. Preoperative(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between patient characteristics and adenosine-related side-effects during stress myocard perfusion imaging (MPI). The effect of presence of adenosine-related side-effects on the diagnostic value of MPI with integrated SPECT/CT system for coronary artery disease (CAD), was also assessed in(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM We aimed to define the optimal SUV(max) cut-off value in determination of mediastinal-hilar lymph node metastasis, by comparing positive PET/CT results with the results of endobronchial ultrasound guided transbronchial needle aspiration biopsy (EBUS-TBNA). MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-one patients with malignancy whose PET/CT imaging(More)
