BACKGROUND The presence of cervical lymph node metastasis is an important prognostic factor for patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC). Accurate assessment of lymph node metastasis in these patients is essential for appropriate prognostic and management purposes. Here, we evaluated the effectiveness of the maximum standardized uptake(More)
Introduction: The use of F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (F-FDG PET) scanning for baseline staging and assessment of treatment response for higher grade lymphomas is considered to be the standard of care. Evaluation of lymphomatous bone marrow infiltration on F-FDG PET can usually distinguish between normal regenerating marrow following(More)
INTRODUCTION Dual Bolus Single Acquisition Computed Tomography (DBSA-CT) has been advocated for use in trauma imaging through its ability to concurrently optimise abdominal arterial and visceral parenchymal enhancement while minimising scan times and radiation dose. However, concerns have been raised regarding excessive splenic parenchymal heterogeneity(More)
INTRODUCTION The use of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (18F-FDG PET) scanning for baseline staging and assessment of treatment response for higher grade lymphomas is considered to be the standard of care. Evaluation of lymphomatous bone marrow infiltration on 18F-FDG PET can usually distinguish between normal regenerating marrow(More)
AIM To determine whether the malignancy risk in an 2-[(18)F]-fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose (FDG)-avid thyroid nodule can be stratified according to the presence or absence of suspicious ultrasound features and thereby identify which nodules require further cytological assessment. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective review of FDG-positron-emission tomography(More)
