Myocardial imaging with 18F-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging in sarcoidosis
PurposeDespite accumulating reports on the clinical value of 18F-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography (18F-FDG PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the assessment of cardiacExpand
Human brain region response to distention or cold stimulation of the bladder: a positron emission tomography study.
PURPOSE Several kinds of perceptions, including distention and coldness, arise from the bladder. Information on bladder fullness conveyed by mechanoreceptors within the bladder wall contributes toExpand
Comparison of bone scintigraphy and 68Ga-PSMA PET for skeletal staging in prostate cancer
PurposeThe aim of our study was to compare the diagnostic performance of 68Ga-PSMA PET and 99mTc bone scintigraphy (BS) for the detection of bone metastases in prostate cancer (PC)Expand
Positron emission tomography using fluorine-18 deoxyglucose in evaluation of coronary artery bypass grafting.
To assess the clinical value of positron emission tomography (PET) in the evaluation of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), PET perfusion and metabolic imaging using nitrogen-13 ammonia andExpand
Quantitative cerebral blood flow measurement with dynamic perfusion CT using the vascular-pixel elimination method: comparison with H2(15)O positron emission tomography.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Blood vessels are usually conspicuous on dynamic CT perfusion images. The presence of large vessels may lead to overestimation of the quantitative value of cerebral blood flowExpand
Performance characterization of the Inveon preclinical small-animal PET/SPECT/CT system for multimodality imaging
PurposeWe investigated the performance of the Inveon small-animal PET/SPECT/CT system and compared the imaging capabilities of the SPECT and PET components.MethodsFor SPECT, the energy resolution,Expand
Delayed 18F‐fluoro‐2‐deoxy‐D‐glucose positron emission tomography scan for differentiation between malignant and benign lesions in the pancreas
Positron emission tomography (PET) using 18F‐fluoro‐2‐deoxy‐D‐glucose (FDG) has been used for the evaluation of various tumors, but accumulation in inflammatory lesions makes it a controversialExpand
FDG uptake and glucose transporter subtype expressions in experimental tumor and inflammation models.
UNLABELLED Although FDG uptake is closely related to the expression of the glucose transporter (GLUT) in malignant tumors, such a relationship has not been fully investigated in inflammatory lesions.Expand
Focal uptake on 18F-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography images indicates cardiac involvement of sarcoidosis.
AIMS To evaluate the value of (18)F-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography ((18)F-FDG PET) in detecting cardiac sarcoidosis. METHODS AND RESULTS Thirty-two patients with sarcoidosis andExpand
Dominant-negative hypoxia-inducible factor-1 alpha reduces tumorigenicity of pancreatic cancer cells through the suppression of glucose metabolism.
In the tumor cells exposed to hypoxia, hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1)-mediated adaptation responses such as angiogenesis and anaerobic metabolism are induced for their survival. We have recentlyExpand
