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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Comparison of three with six regions of interest analyses in patients with idiopathic constipation undertaking colon transit scintigraphy using 67Ga-citrate
OBJECTIVE AND INTRODUCTION: Preparation of data from 6 geometric regions of interest in the colon is time consuming, and can become impractical in the environment of busy Nuclear Medicine Departments. Therefore, we have ...
Comparison of technetium-99m IgG with technetium-99m red blood cells labeling in cardiac blood-pool scintigraphy: A preliminary study
This first clinical prospective study was conducted to use of technetium-99m immunoglobulin G (99mTc-IgG) as compared with autologous 99mTc-red blood cells (RBC) in gated blood pool ventriculography. We studied 12 patients ...
