We present a 55-year old male patient who was subjected to whole body skeletal scintigraphy for metastatic work up of urinary bladder cancer. Whole body 99m Tc-methylene diphosphonate (MDP) skeletal scintigraphy was performed. That revealed no skeletal metastasis in the entire body skeleton and normally visualized left kidney with empty right renal fossa.(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)
Primary renal neuroblastoma is an uncommon tumor in children and extremely rare in adults. We present a case of a middle aged female having a large retroperitoneal mass involving the right kidney with features of neuroblastoma on pre-operative histopathology. Whole-body fluorine-18-fluoro-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) and(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)
TENIS (thyroglobulin elevation with negative iodine scintigraphy) syndrome in patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma is not a rare finding. In such patients, F-FDG PET/CT can help in disease evaluation. RGD tripeptide, used for imaging angiogenesis, may also help in disease detection in patients with negative radioiodine whole-body scan. We present(More)
Dermatomyositis is an inflammatory myopathy with the characteristic features of skin rash and myopathy. We here present a known case of dermatomyositis evaluated with 18F-FDG PET/CT for the presence of any occult malignancy. The scan was negative for the presence of any malignancy. However, it revealed multiple intensely FDG avid colonic strictures that(More)
We report a case of clinically asymptomatic patient of prostate cancer who was previously subjected to radical prostatectomy presenting with a rising serum prostate-specific antigen level of 6.6 ng/mL. Whole-body PET/CT with Ga-labeled prostate-specific membrane antigen ligand was performed to assess for disease recurrence, which revealed an intense tracer(More)
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)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare the diagnostic performance of F-fluorocholine (FCH) PET/CT and dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) of pelvis in restaging prostate cancer (PC) patients with biochemical recurrence (BCR) following radical prostatectomy (RP). METHODS Twenty PC patients who had undergone RP and had BCR were recruited in this(More)
