The aim of this study was to compare technetium-99m-hexamethylpropyleneamineoxime (99mTc-HMPAO) single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) with regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) imaging using positron emission tomography (PET). As investigation of dementia is likely to be one of the main uses of routine rCBF imaging, 18 demented patients were(More)
BACKGROUND Diagnostic classes (derived from CATEGO) can be correlated with regional brain metabolism in patients with major psychiatric disorders. METHOD Seventeen patients with schizophrenia, 15 with mania, 10 with depression and 10 healthy Volunteers were examined with positron emission tomography (PET) and 18F-labelled fluorodeoxyglucose, as a marker(More)
Few studies have evaluated the impact of childhood cancer on parents' occupational/financial status. This study explored parents' occupational/financial experiences posttreatment. Semistructured interviews were administered to 78 parents (44 mothers) of childhood cancer survivors diagnosed in the preceding 5 years. Transcripts were organized into themes(More)
BACKGROUND Diagnostic delays may not have significant prognostic implications in paediatric oncology, but psychological impacts remain understudied. METHODS Interviews exploring diagnostic experiences were conducted with childhood cancer survivors (n=19), parents (n=78) and siblings (n=15). RESULTS Median diagnostic time was 3 weeks.

A total of nine normal volunteer subjects were studied with three forms of [99@c@xamethyIpropyleneamineoxime (HM-PAO), a potential cerebral blood flow imaging agent. One, the d,l isomer, showed 4. 1 % uptake in the brain Which remained constant over 8 hr. There was good differentiationbetween uptake in @ay and white matter on tomographic slices. We(More)
