A 16-year-old female with no significant past medical history developed acute onset of progressive hoarseness of voice with sensation of foreign body in her throat. Her primary care physician had prescribed her a course of antibiotics for laryngitis. Her symptoms persisted and a vocal cord lesion was suspected. She was evaluated by an otolaryngologist and(More)
Preliminary experiments have demonstrated the potential usefulness of a precursor balance prosthesis that displays the tilt of the subject using tactile vibrators (tactors) which are in contact with the subject's skin. The device consists of a motion sensing system mounted on the head or body whose signals are converted into estimates of head or body tilt.(More)
UNLABELLED We have developed a software-based method for processing dual-energy 201TI SPECT emission projection data with the goal of calculating a spatially dependent index of the local impact of gamma-ray attenuation. We refer to this method as intrinsic dual-energy processing (IDEP). METHODS IDEP exploits the differential attenuation of lower energy(More)
BACKGROUND Single photon emission computed tomographic (SPECT) acquisition provides potential advantages for blood pool imaging. However, the method has been little applied. METHODS An improved method of three-dimensional (3-D) reconstruction and display of SPECT equilibrium blood pool scintigrams and related phase data was developed. Dynamic slices and(More)
OBJECTIVE The feasibility of parathyroid preservation during thyroidectomy has not been well documented for cases in which the thyroid gland extends into the mediastinum. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective chart review. SETTING Tertiary academic referral center. SUBJECTS AND METHODS In this retrospective cohort study, 70 consecutive patients who had(More)
BACKGROUND Shortening the acquisition time for myocardial single-photon emission computed tomographic (SPECT) imaging increases patient comfort and laboratory throughput. The purpose of this study was to compare the diagnostic accuracy for coronary artery disease detection of myocardial SPECT images acquired in 5 to 10 minutes versus 25 minutes using Tc-99m(More)
