The aim of this study was to investigate the prognostic significance of standardized uptake value (SUV) on 18 fluorine-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Thirty-four patients who have histologically proven NPC and underwent 18F-FDG PET/CT were included in(More)
BACKGROUND Concomitant thyroid pathologies in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) present a challenge in the clinical and surgical decision-making for these patients. In this study, we aimed to evaluate concomitant thyroid pathologies in patients who underwent operations for PHPT to determine the sensitivity (Sn) of neck ultrasonography (US)(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to disclose the prevalence of myocardial ischemia, as detected by adenosine stress myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with hybrid single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT), in asymptomatic diabetic and pre-diabetic patients and to find out whether ischemia predicted the occurrence of(More)
BRAF(V600E) mutation was analyzed by real-time polymerase chain reaction in 96 consecutive cases with classical variant papillary thyroid cancer, and immunohistochemical staining of Na+/I- symporter (NIS) protein was evaluated. Localization (intracellular or membranous), density, and the intensity of cytoplasmic staining were characterized(More)
