OBJECTIVES We sought to evaluate the long-term effects of alternative right ventricular pacing sites on myocardial function and perfusion. BACKGROUND Previous studies have demonstrated that asynchronous ventricular activation due to right ventricular apical (RVA) pacing alters regional myocardial perfusion and functions. METHODS We randomized 24(More)
This is a naturalistic study of the relationship between cerebral metabolic activity, clinical symptoms and treatment response in a schizophrenic patient for 5 years from the onset of her illness. Serial technetium-99m-HMPAO brain SPECT was used to measure regional cerebral metabolism. The Cambridge Neurological Inventory and neuropsychological tests(More)
Epiphora, an abnormal overflow of tears, is commonly caused by tear drainage system anomalies including nasolacrimal duct obstruction. To evaluate the function of the system, dacryoscintigraphy is a commonly available non-invasive method under a nuclear medicine dynamic acquisition. We recommend the use of SPECT/CT after the dynamic acquisition to localize(More)
OBJECTIVE The study objectives were to explore the predictors of measured resting energy expenditure (mREE) among a sample of maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) patients, to generate a predictive energy equation (MHDE), and to compare such models to another commonly used predictive energy equation in nutritional care, the Mifflin-St. Jeor equation (MSJE).
