The aim of this paper was to compare the value of bone scintigraphy and radiography in the early diagnosis of post-fracture reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD). Thirty-seven adult patients with post-fracture RSD (28 in the first and nine in the second clinical stage of RSD), as well as seven patients with fracture but without RSD (control group), were(More)
BACKGROUND Static renal scintigraphy with 99mTc-DMSA is a sensitive method for evaluation of any reduction of cortical mass function. There is not enough reliable references in the literature on scintigraphic reports in terms of objectivity and standardization. The aim of this paper was to assess the differences in interpretation of routine renal(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to set up normal values of the fractional uptake (FU) of technetium-99m dimercaptosuccinic acid in adults and in the pediatric population, as well as to evaluate the validity of this parameter at different levels of renal function. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 86 subjects was divided into seven groups. In group(More)
OBJECTIVE 99mTc-p-aminohippuric acid (PAH) is a new radiopharmaceutical rapidly secreted by the kidneys in a manner consistent with tubular secretion. A comparative study of renal scintigraphy and clearance with 99mTc-PAH, diethylene triamine pentaacetic acid (DTPA) and mercaptoacetyltriglycine (MAG,) was performed. METHODS 99mTc-PAH was prepared from a(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The major one among the procedures for evaluating changes in the thyroid nodules is fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB). Thyroid scintigraphy is commonly used in diagnostic algorithm of nodules. Less than 5% of examined nodules show to be malignant. Scintigraphically, nodules could be classified as functional and nonfunctional. It is(More)
