The purpose of this guideline is to assist nuclear medicine practitioners in recommending, performing, interpreting , and reporting the results of myocardial perfusion imaging studies. Myocardial perfusion imaging uses an intravenously administered radiopharmaceutical to depict the distribution of blood flow in the myocardium. Perfusion imaging identifies(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated that experimentally altering the accessibility and availability of food can have profound impact on behavior and adrenocortical activity in nonhuman primate species. In this study, groups of mother-infant squirrel monkey dyads were housed in either high demand (HFD: 120% normal daily food intake provided), low demand (LFD:(More)
The purpose of this guideline is to assist nuclear medicine practitioners in recommending, performing , interpreting, and reporting the results of my-ocardial perfusion imaging studies. Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) utilizes an intravenously administered radiopharmaceutical to depict the distribution of nutritional blood flow in the myocardium.(More)
BACKGROUND The persistence of moderate ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR) after isolated coronary artery bypass graft surgery is an important independent predictor of long-term mortality. The aim of the present study was to identify predictors of postoperative improvement in moderate IMR in patients with ischemic heart disease undergoing elective isolated(More)
PURPOSE The diagnosis of osteomyelitis is a challenge for diagnostic imaging. Nuclear medicine procedures including white blood cell imaging have been successfully used for the identification of bone infections. This multinational, phase III clinical study in 22 European centres was undertaken to compare anti-granulocyte imaging using the murine IgG(More)
AIMS To assess the accuracy of tissue Doppler imaging-derived myocardial positive pre-ejection velocity (+Vic) in detecting myocardial viability defined by dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE), fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (PET), and contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and in predicting recovery of left(More)
The purpose of this guideline is to assist nuclear medicine practitioners in recommending, performing , interpreting and reporting the results of gal-lium-67 citrate (Ga-67) imaging in the evaluation of patients with malignant disease. A. Ga-67 is a group IIIA metal which has been used for imaging a variety of solid neoplasms for more than 25 yr. B. Ga-67(More)
The purpose of this guideline is to assist nuclear medicine practioners in recommending, performing , interpreting, and reporting the results of gated equilibrium radionuclide ventriculography. Gated equilibrium radionuclide ventriculography (RVG) is a procedure in which the patient's red blood cells (RBCs) are radiolabeled and electrocar-diograph(More)
