Ga-labeled prostate-specific membrane antigen ligand PET-CT has emerged as a promising technique to evaluate the extent of disease in patients with prostate carcinoma. We are reporting a 63-year-old man with prostatic carcinoma subjected to Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen ligand PET-CT for initial staging. In addition to the radiotracer uptake in(More)
An over-expression of chemokine receptor subtype CXCR4 in many human cancers and targeting CXCR4/CXCR12-axis is viewed as a promising approach for developing specific PET imaging probes [1, 2]. Recently, the pre-clinical evaluation and clinical validation of Ga-labeled Pentixafor (a cyclic pentapeptide) for PET imaging of CXCR4 expression have been(More)
Metastatic jugular paraganglioma are rare tumors and account for less than 1% of the cases of head and neck tumors. We report a 40-year-old woman of jugular paraganglioma, presenting with right-sided neck swelling, hearing loss, and pulsatile tinnitus. Contrast-enhanced CT temporal bone revealed a mass in the right jugular foramina and extending inferiorly(More)
Lung cancer is one of the leading cancers all over the world. Positron emission tomography (PET) using 18F fluorodeoxyglucose (18F FDG) is useful for staging of the disease and decide the appropriate management. 3'-deoxy-3'-18 F-fluorothymidine (18F FLT) is a tracer being extensively evaluated currently and is said to represent tumor proliferation. Common(More)
Anti-histidyl (Jo-1) antibodies have been implicated in the pathogenesis of anti-synthetase syndrome (ASS). A case is presented of a 55-year-old male patient presenting with pyrexia of unknown origin and inconclusive routine investigations. (18)F-FDG PET/CT was performed to locate any abnormal focus, which showed increased FDG uptake in the proximal(More)
Calcinosis, although frequent in juvenile dermatomyositis is a rare finding in adults. It is more common in later phases of the disease, involving sites under chronic stress and trauma. We present a 52-year-old female patient of dermatomyositis who on single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography hybrid images showed exclusive subcutaneous(More)
Bronchobiliary fistula (BBF), a rare complication of liver disease, is an abnormal communication between the biliary tract and bronchial tree. BBF may occur as a consequence of local liver infections such as hydatid or amebic disease, pyogenic liver abscess or trauma to the liver, obstruction of biliary tract, and tumor. As such management of liver disease(More)
Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) either using Lu-177 or Y-90 peptide radiopharmaceuticals has emerged as promising treatment modality in patients with inoperable metastatic neuroendocrine tumour (NET) including medullary thyroid cancer, because of overexpression of somatostatin receptor 2 (sstr-2) on these cells. The several investigators have(More)
