One size does not fit all: The merit of absorbed doses to the blood in 131i therapy for differentiated thyroid carcinoma
The amount of 131I necessary for successful ablation in patients with differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) is still subject to debate. This study investigates the relationship of the absorbed dose of radiation to the blood ...
Erdheim-Chester's disease as a differential diagnosis of "hot" kidneys on bone scintigraphy
[No abstract available]
Management of gastrointestinal complaints in differentiated thyroid cancer patients treated with 131I: Comparison of the efficacy of pantoprazole, metoclopra-mide, and ondansetron – a randomized clinical trial [Behandlung gastrointestinaler beschwerden unter 131I-therapie bei patienten mit differenzier-tem schilddrüsenkarzinom: Vergleich der wirksamkeit von pantoprazol, meto-clopramid und ondansetron – eine randomisierte klinische prüfung]
Objective: To compare safety and efficacy of pantoprazol, metoclopramide, ondansetron, as compared to placebo, in controlling gastrointestinal (GI) complaints of thyroid cancer patients treated with I-131these patients. ...
The role of cognitive group therapy and happiness training on cerebral blood flow using 99mTc-ECD brain perfusion SPECT: A quasi-experimental study of depressed patients(Article) [Die wirkung der kognitiven gruppentherapie und des glückstrainings auf die zerebrale durchblu-tung mittels 99mTc-ECD hirndurchblutungs-SPECT eine quasi-experimentelle studie an depressiven patienten]
Objective: The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of cognitive group therapy and happiness training objectively in the local cerebral blood flow of patients with major depression (MD). Patients, material, ...
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. ...
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 ...
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, ...
Evaluation of prognostic factors associated with differentiated thyroid carcinoma with pulmonary metastasis
Background: Because one of the major sites for metastasis of thyroid cancers is the lung, studying the pattern of pulmonary metastasis may provide useful information for the effective treatment of these patients. In this ...
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 ...
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 ...
