BACKGROUND Coronary artery disease (CAD) is one of the most common diseases that accounts for a considerable part of health care reimbursement. Thus, noninvasive diagnosis of CAD is likewise of pivotal importance for medical care today. NONINVASIVE DIAGNOSIS OF CAD In this review, the authors present the entire spectrum of noninvasive diagnostic methods(More)
The employment of biomarkers (including imaging biomarkers, especially PET) in drug development has gained increasing attention during recent years. This has been partly stimulated by the hope that the integration of biomarkers into drug development programmes may be a means to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the drug development process by(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the utility of a dynamic contrast enhanced FLASH-2D sequence for differential diagnosis of tumours in head and neck in 93 patients. Initially, the localization of the lesion and the selection of four representative slices for the dynamic study were obtained by a T2-weighted spin-echo sequence (TR 2000–3000 ms; TE(More)
The diagnosis of osteomyelitis is a challenge for diagnostic imaging. Nuclear medicine procedures including white blood cell imaging have been successfully used for the identification of bone infections. This multinational, phase III clinical study in 22 European centres was undertaken to compare anti-granulocyte imaging using the murine IgG antibody(More)
Die koronare Herzkrankheit (KHK) ist eine der häufigsten und ökonomisch bedeutendsten Erkrankungen. Folgerichtig besitzt auch die nichtinvasive Diagnostik der KHK große Bedeutung im klinischen Alltag. In dieser Übersicht stellen die Autoren den Kanon der Möglichkeiten zur nichtinvasiven KHK-Diagnostik dar. Zu Beginn werden die einfachsten und zugleich(More)
AIM This study evaluated the use of bone scintigraphy (BS) for the diagnosis of stress fractures in athletes and its validity for the prediction of healing time, with a focus on foot injuries. METHODS In our retrospective study, 84 athletes with a total of 93 suspected stress fractures (foot, n = 66; others, n = 27) were included. A blinded-read of BS was(More)
Myocardial contrast echocardiography (MCE) is a promising diagnostic tool for detecting microvascular integrity. The aim of the study was to investigate the comparative specificity and sensitivity of intravenous MCE, technetium-99m Sestamibi single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and dipyridamole–dobutamine (DIDO) stress echocardiography for(More)
UNLABELLED Perfusion scintigraphy using (99m)Tc-labeled albumin aggregates is mandatory before hepatic radioembolization with (90)Y-microspheres. As part of a prospective trial, the intrahepatic and intrapulmonary stability of 2 albumin compounds, (99m)Tc-MAA (macroaggregated serum albumin [MAA]) and (99m)Tc-HSA (human serum albumin [HSA]), was assessed.
