99 mTc-MIBI washout as a complementary factor in the evaluation of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDCM) using myocardial perfusion imaging
Rapid technetium-99 m methoxyisobutylisonitrile (99 mTc-MIBI) washout has been shown to occur in impairedmyocardia. This study is based on the hypothesis that scintigraphy can be applied to calculate the myocardial 99 ...
Relation between clinical and laboratory parameters with radiation dose rates from patients receiving iodine-131 therapy for thyroid carcinoma
Three days following administration of radioactive iodine in 38 patients, exposure rates such as dose rate close to the dress (D0), dose rate of dress at 1 m (D1), dose rate close to the bedsheet (B0), dose rate of bedsheet ...
The effect of an iodine restricted including no sea foods diet, on technetium-99m thyroid scintigraphy: A neglected issue in nuclear medicine practice
Although it is recommended to patients to avoid sea food and iodine-containing medications prior to iodine-131 ( 131I) scanning, the efficacy of this diet as for technetium-99m pertechnetate ( 99mTc-P) thyroid scintigraphy ...
Pathological evaluation of differentiated thyroid cancer in patients with positive serum thyroglobulin and negative iodine scan
OBJECTIVE: There is no investigation that emphasizes the pathology of DTC (differentiated thyroid cancer) patients with positive Tg and negative iodine scan. The present study was performed to assess the pathology of these ...
A study of the time of hospital discharge of differentiated thyroid cancer patients after receiving iodine-131 for thyroid remnant ablation treatment
The aim of this study was to measure the radiation exposure rate from differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) patients who had received iodine-131 (131I) treatment, and to evaluate hospital discharge planning in relation ...
