BACKGROUND The aim of this retrospective study was to report the prevalence and patterns of soft tissue (ST) metastasis detected with true whole-body (TWB) F-18 FDG PET/CT acquired from the top of the skull through the bottom of the feet and to compare such findings to that of the typically acquired skull-base to upper-thigh, thus limited whole-body (LWB)(More)
PURPOSE To study blood flow (BF) and metabolism in normal pancreas and in different pancreatic lesions. We then determined the effect of these biomarkers on outcome in patients with pancreatic cancer. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Oxygen-15-labeled water and fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography scans were used in 26 patients with a(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of this study was to compare the diagnostic utility of (123)I-metaiodobenzylguanidine ((123)I-MIBG) scintigraphy and (18)F-FDG PET in neuroblastoma. METHODS A total of 113 paired (123)I-MIBG and (18)F-FDG PET scans in 60 patients with neuroblastoma were retrospectively reviewed. Paired scans were acquired within 14 days of each(More)
We present the case of a 77-year-old male with a history of prostate cancer. Follow up PET-CT and contrast-enhanced CT demonstrated a small peritoneal loose body or "mouse" in the pelvis. This is an uncommon, benign, asymptomatic finding which is usually incidentally discovered. The significance of being aware of this entity is to distinguish it from(More)
BACKGROUND Extrapulmonary small cell carcinoma (EPSCC) involving the brain is a rare manifestation of an uncommon tumor type. CASE PRESENTATION We report a 59 year-old Caucasian female diagnosed with an EPSCC involving the left parietal lobe without detectable extracranial primary tumor followed by serial positron emission tomography/computed tomography(More)
Background and Purpose. Radium-223 dichloride (Xofigo®, Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals Inc.) is the first α-particle emitter therapeutic agent approved by the FDA, with benefits in overall survival and delay in symptomatic skeletal event for patients with metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). Recent post hoc analyses of the phase III(More)
AIMS The prognosis of nonsmall cell lung cancer with cavitation (NSCLC-c) is not well-known. We compared the positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) findings and survival data of patients with NSCLC-c patients with those without cavitation (NSCLC-nc). METHODS Between 7/2004 and 6/2007, cavitary lung lesions were identified in 46/248(More)
INTRODUCTION Breast lymphoma accounts for less than 1% of all non-Hodgkin's lymphomas and approximately 0.1% of all breast neoplasms. Most breast lymphomas are classified as diffuse large B-cell lymphomas or as mucosa associated lymphoid tissue lymphomas. Concurrent cases of breast lymphoma and cervical cancer are extremely rare.
