Percutaneous Coronary Angioplasty Compared With Exercise Training in Patients With Stable Coronary Artery Disease: A Randomized Trial
TLDR
Compared with PCI, a 12-month program of regular physical exercise in selected patients with stable coronary artery disease resulted in superior event-free survival and exercise capacity at lower costs, notably owing to reduced rehospitalizations and repeat revascularizations.
SNM Practice Guideline for Dopamine Transporter Imaging with 123I-Ioflupane SPECT 1.0*
TLDR
The results show clear trends in the prognosis for nuclear medicine in the developing world and these trends are likely to continue to improve over the next few years.
FDG PET for detection and therapy control of metastatic germ cell tumor.
TLDR
PET using FDG is superior to CT for assessment of residual tumor after chemotherapy of germ cell cancer and may have an increased effect on patient management in the future.
Prevalence of cerebral amyloid pathology in persons without dementia: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
Among persons without dementia, the prevalence of cerebral amyloid pathology as determined by positron emission tomography or cerebrospinal fluid findings was associated with age, apolipoprotein E [APOE] genotype, sex, and education, and presence of cognitive impairment.
Transplantation of Blood-Derived Progenitor Cells After Recanalization of Chronic Coronary Artery Occlusion: First Randomized and Placebo-Controlled Study
TLDR
Intracoronary transplantation of CPCs after recanalization of CTO results in an improvement of macro- and microvascular function and contributes to the recruitment of hibernating myocardium.
In vivo staging of regional amyloid deposition
TLDR
The highly consistent regional hierarchy of PET-evidenced amyloids deposition across participants resembles neuropathologic observations and suggests a predictable regional sequence that may be used to stage an individual's progress of amyloid pathology in vivo.
Combined Evaluation of FDG-PET and MRI Improves Detection and Differentiation of Dementia
TLDR
A substantial gain in accuracy is indicated using combined FDG-PET and MRI information and the incorporation of such approaches to clinical diagnosis and to differential diagnostic procedures of neurodegenerative disorders are suggested.
