The effective half-life of radioactive iodine for (near) thyroidectomy patients was evaluated using an in vivo gamma camera approach. Five patients with post administered iodine for remnant ablation of thyroid were thoroughly scanned in vivo for one to four weeks. Derived data were analyzed in a MATLAB program to revise the ICRP recommended effective(More)
PURPOSE To perform a single-arm study to determine the effectiveness of and potential toxic reactions to local hyperthermia and systemic carboplatin (cis-diammine-1,1-cyclobutane dicarboxylate platinum II) for the treatment of advanced or recurrent squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eight patients with squamous cell(More)
Pulmonary artery oxygen saturation (PA) was measured directly and estimated from venal cavae samples in 175 adults without intracardiac shunts to ascertain which of four formulas (MV1, MV2, MV3, or MV4) best estimated mixed venous oxygen saturation. Because the formula MV1, which favored IVC samples, most closely approximated pulmonary artery saturation, we(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the biodistribution, effective retention half-time (T(eff)), and internal organ dosimetry of (131)I administered to patients with papillary thyroid cancer after a total or near total thyroidectomy, and whole-body and organ activity was measured by gamma-camera imaging at 16 time points over 5 days following the(More)
A 43-year-old male patient with follicular B-cell lymphoma was referred for a FDG PET/CT scan due to severe left lower abdominal pain to rule out recurrent cancer. These FDG PET/CT images and previous FDG PET/CT images 5 months ago both revealed an air bubble in the urinary bladder on the CT images. He had a recurrent urinary tract infection history for 6(More)
