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, ...
Scintigraphic parameters with emphasis on perfusion appraisal in rest 99mTc-sestamibi SPECT in the recovery of myocardial function after thrombolytic therapy in patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI)
Introduction: This study was performed to determine the clinical application of rest 99mTc-sestamibi in the assessment of viability and functional improvement of the left ventricle (LV) myocardium in the post-thrombolytic ...
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 ...
