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 ...
Myocardial perfusion imaging using a technetium-99m Sestamibi in asymptomatic and low risk for coronary artery disease patients with diagnosed systemic lupus erythematosus
Introduction: The aim of the present study was to evaluate technetium-99m sestamibi single photon emission tomography (SPECT) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) and its association with some clinical and laboratory parameters ...
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 ...
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 ...
