Assessment of radioiodine clearance in patients with differentiated thyroid cancer
Radioiodine (131I iodide) has long been a safe, effective and widely used treatment in the management of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). Concerns regarding stochastic radiogenic risks have led to regulatory criteria ...
Chromosome aberrations after high-dose 131I and 99mTc-MIBI administration using a micronucleus assay
Objective: We evaluated the potential detrimental cytogenetic effects of 99mTc-methoxyisobutyl isonitrile (MIBI) and 131I on patients who were exposed to the radiopharmaceutics for cardiac imaging or thyroid cancer therapy, ...
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 ...
The utility and prognostic value of dipyridamole technetium-99m sestamibi myocardial perfusion imaging SPECT in predicting perioperative cardiac events following non-cardiac surgery
Objective: A perioperative cardiac events is one of the most important medical concerns for both surgeons and patients. The purpose of the current study was to determine the prognostic value of myocardial perfusion imaging ...
