AIM To externally validate a computer-assisted detection (CAD) system for computed tomography (CT) colonography, using data from a single centre uninvolved with the software development. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-five multi-detector CT colonography examinations of patients with validated polyps accumulated at a single centre were examined by two(More)
UNLABELLED Imaging of serotonin transporter (SERT) in the central nervous system may provide an important tool to evaluate some psychiatric disorders. Recently, a novel (123)I-labeled radiotracer, 2-((2-((dimethylamino)methyl)phenyl)thio)-5-iodophenylamine ((123)I-ADAM), has been developed that exhibited a high selectivity for SERT. The aim of this study(More)
Iodine-123 labeled 2-((2-((dimethylamino)methyl)phenyl)thio)-5-iodophenylamine ([(123)I] ADAM) has been suggested as a promising serotonin transporter (SERT) imaging agent. Much research has been accomplished, mainly focusing on the SERT binding sites in the central nervous system (CNS). However, the biodistribution of [(123)I] ADAM using whole body(More)
BACKGROUND Increased levels of serum IgE are associated with greater asthma prevalence and disease severity. IgE depletion using an anti-IgE monoclonal antibody has met with success in the treatment of moderate-to-severe and severe persistent allergic asthma. OBJECTIVE To test whether B cell-targeted therapy is a more effective treatment for airway(More)
BACKGROUND A novel radioiodine ligand [(123)I] ADAM (2-((2-((dimethylamino)methyl)phenyl)thio)-5-iodophenylamine) has been suggested as a promising serotonin transporter (SERT) imaging agent for the central nervous system. In this study, the biodistribution of SERTs in the rabbit brain was investigated using [(123)I] ADAM and mapping images of the same(More)
A radiopharmaceutical, (123)I-labeled 2-((2-((dimethylamino)methyl)phenyl)thio)-5-iodophenylamine ([(123)I]ADAM), has been developed recently for evaluation of how serotonin transporters (SERT) function in the brain. However, the detailed biodistribution and specific binding in certain brain areas are not well investigated. In this study, both phosphor(More)
