AIM The striatal-to-occipital ratio (SOR) is commonly used as an analytical parameter in L-3,4-dihydroxy-6-18F-fluorophenylalanine (FDOPA) PET studies. It has been shown to be useful in differentiating idiopathic Parkinson's disease (IPD) patients from healthy individuals. We assessed the performance of SORs and subregional ratio of striatal-to-occipital(More)
INTRODUCTION (11)C-methonine ([(11)C]-MET) positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) is a well-established technique for evaluation of tumor for diagnosis and treatment planning in neurooncology. [(11)C]-MET reflects amino acid transport and has been shown to be more sensitive than magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in stereotactic biopsy(More)
BACKGROUND A variety of neurodegenerative disorders produce significant abnormal brain function which can be detected using fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG PET) scan even when structural changes are not detected on CT or MRI Scan. A study was undertaken at our institute to evaluate the FDG PET/CT findings in Indian population suffering(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective was to assess the utility of gray-scale USG to identify patterns of thyroid nodules and to correlate the characteristics of benign and malignant nodules with pathological diagnosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS From September 2009 to August 2010, a total of 203 patients (17 males and 186 females), with 240 nodules detected at USG, were(More)
Wheat grain yield is limited due to terminal heat stress. Inconsistency of the previous results reflects the interactions between genotypes and environments. In North West Plain Zone (NWPZ), where the hot, dry wind is frequent during grain filling, wheat cultivars suffer from loss of grain weight because of low grain filling rate. A field study was carried(More)
The thyroid follicles represent a biological continuum. Each follicle is closely related to the follicle that is next to it. The important feature of a follicular carcinoma is a microfollicular pattern. We report a case of follicular carcinoma in a 48-year-old female that demonstrates microfollicles which are larger in size and contain more number of(More)
Positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) using 2-deoxy-2-(fluorine-18) fluoro-D-glucose ((18)F-FDG) has become a standard diagnostic modality in oncological practice. F18-FDG PET/CT is sensitive in detecting malignancy; however, specificity is low in differentiating infections or inflammatory diseases from tumor. In the present case study,(More)
