Prognostic value of [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomographic scanning in patients with thyroid cancer.
Poorly differentiated thyroid cancer lesions often lose the ability to concentrate radioactive [131I]iodine (RAI) and exhibit increased metabolic activity, as evidenced by enhanced glucose uptake. WeExpand

[18F]-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography localizes residual thyroid cancer in patients with negative diagnostic (131)I whole body scans and elevated serum thyroglobulin levels.
Progressive dedifferentiation of thyroid cancer cells leads to a loss of iodine-concentrating ability, with resultant false negative, whole body radioactive iodine scans in approximately 20% of allExpand

Pharmacokinetic Analysis of Hypoxia 18F-Fluoromisonidazole Dynamic PET in Head and Neck Cancer
This study used pharmacokinetic analysis of 18F-labeled fluoromisonidazole (18F-FMISO) dynamic PET to assist the identification of regional tumor hypoxia and to investigate the relationship among aExpand

Resistance of [18f]-fluorodeoxyglucose-avid metastatic thyroid cancer lesions to treatment with high-dose radioactive iodine.
Radioactive iodine (131I) is an important therapeutic option for the treatment of metastatic thyroid carcinoma. Survival in patients with metastases that concentrate radioiodine is better than thoseExpand

Anordiol is more potent than anordrin for terminating pregnancy when administered with RU 486.
In view of the unexpected ability of anordrin to synergize with RU 486 in terminating pregnancy, it was pertinent to examine the actions of the dihydroxylated metabolite of anordrin, anordiol, aloneExpand

Impact of attenuation and scatter correction in estimating tumor hypoxia-related kinetic parameters for FMISO dynamic animal-PET imaging
Tumor hypoxia promotes tumor progression and reduces the efficacy of radiation and chemotherapy. A potentially important non-invasive hypoxia imaging technique is positron-emission-tomography (PET)Expand

A progressive rise in stomach cancer-related mortality rate during 1970–1995 in Japanese individuals over 85 years of age
A large number of studies have shown a gradual fall in stomach cancer-related mortality rate during the last decade. Here we analyzed the pattern of stomach cancer-related mortality rates in JapaneseExpand

WE‐C‐303A‐03: Pharmacokinetic Analysis of Hypoxia 18‐Fluoromisonidazole Dynamic PET Imaging in Head and Neck Cancer
Purpose: This paper uses pharmacokinetic analysis of 18‐Fluoromisonidazole (FMISO) dynamic PETimaging to investigate if there is any correlation between tumor hypoxia (Ki ), tumor‐to‐blood ratioExpand
