The role of 99mTc-MIBI scintigraphy in the management of patients with pulmonary tuberculosis
Background: This study aimed to determine whether 99mTc- methoxyisobutylisonitrile (MIBI) scanning could improve diagnostic accuracy of pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) and help clinical decision making for an accurate management. ...
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 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 ...
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 ...
