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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
