We investigated whether IMT and PWV are useful predictors of cardiovascular risk in hypertensive adolescents. Fifteen hypertensive adolescents (13-18 yr old, systolic BP > or =(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the potential utility of (123)I-metaiodobenzylguanine ((123)I-MIBG) scintigraphy and (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose ((18)F-FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) for the detection of primary and metastatic lesions in pediatric neuroblastoma (NBL) patients, and to determine whether (18)F-FDG PET is as beneficial as (123)I-MIBG imaging.
