Periosteal reaction (PR) is the response of cortical bone to an underlying insult. It is manifest in a limited number of histological and radiological patterns. Although not specific for a particular diagnosis, the appearance of PR aids the radiological characterization of bone lesions. Once ossified, PR is demonstrated well on plain radiography but can(More)
Neuroendocrine tumours (NET) are rare tumours that occur most commonly in the GI tract. Various labelled somatostatin analogues are used to image NET expressing somatostatin receptors (SSTR). In traditional nuclear medicine, most peptides used in imaging NET have been labelled with indium-111, the commonest being indium-111-octreotide (111In-octreotide).(More)
The imaging of Bremsstrahlung radiation is performed after hepatic radioembolization to assess the distribution of the injected radioactive material. This review assesses the role of Bremsstrahlung imaging and its relation to the angiographic procedure and technique in hepatic selective internal radiation therapy on 21 patients undergoing this procedure at(More)
AIM The aim of the study was to investigate the value of fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose ((18)F-FDG)-PET/computed tomography (CT) in identifying diffuse bone marrow (BM) involvement in follicular lymphoma using semiquantitative assessment. METHODS This is a retrospective analysis of 41 patients with grade 1-3a follicular lymphoma who underwent(More)
INTRODUCTION Selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) with SIR spheres (90Y microspheres) is a treatment option for liver tumours in patients in whom other therapies are inappropriate or have failed. This study aims to assess the value of FDG PET in assessing the response to SIRT as compared to computed tomography (CT). MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty-one(More)
PURPOSE No current neuroimaging modality offers mechanistic or prognostic information to guide management in paediatric dystonia. We assessed F-fluorodeoxyglucose (¹⁸F-FDG) PET/computed tomography (CT) brain imaging in childhood primary dystonia (PDS) and neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA) to determine whether it would identify altered(More)
Importance Preclinical studies show that arginine deprivation is synthetically lethal in argininosuccinate synthetase 1 (ASS1)-negative cancers, including mesothelioma. The role of the arginine-lowering agent pegylated arginine deiminase (ADI-PEG20) has not been evaluated in a randomized and biomarker-driven study among patients with cancer. Objective To(More)
PURPOSE To compare a STIR sequence with gadolinium-enhanced techniques on endoanal magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of fistulas-in-ano by correlating the findings with those at surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty-two consecutive patients with clinical suspicion of perianal sepsis were studied using an endoanal coil followed immediately by a phased array(More)
