PURPOSE: We studied the usefulness of 68 Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET/CT for detecting relapse in a prospective series of patients with biochemical recurrence (BCR) of prostate cancer (PCa) after radical treatment. METHODS: Patients with BCR of PCa after radical surgery and/or radiotherapy with or without androgen-deprivation therapy were included in the study. 68 Ga-PSMA PET/CT scans performed from the top of the head to the mid-thigh 60 min after intravenous injection of 150 ± 50 MBq of 68 Ga-PSMA were interpreted by two nuclear medicine physicians...

PURPOSE: The primary aim of this retrospective, single-centre analysis was to assess the performance of 68 Ga-PSMA-11 PET/CT in prostate cancer (PCa) patients in early PSA failure after radical prostatectomy (RP). The secondary aim was to assess the potential impact of 68 Ga-PSMA-11 PET/CT on treatment strategy. METHODS: 68 Ga-PSMA-11 PET/CT is performed in our institution within an investigational new drug (IND) trial in PCa patients with biochemical recurrence (BCR)...

PURPOSE: We hypothesized that whole-body metabolic tumor volume (MTVwb) could be used to supplement non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) staging due to its independent prognostic value. The goal of this study was to develop and validate a novel MTVwb risk stratification system to supplement NSCLC staging. METHODS: We performed an IRB-approved retrospective review of 935 patients with NSCLC and FDG-avid tumor divided into modeling and validation cohorts based on the type of PET/CT scanner used for imaging...

PURPOSE: Invasive fungal infections (IFIs) are common in immunocompromised patients. While early diagnosis can reduce otherwise high morbidity and mortality, conventional CT has suboptimal sensitivity and specificity. Small studies have suggested that the use of FDG PET/CT may improve the ability to detect IFI. The objective of this study was to describe the proven and probable IFIs detected on FDG PET/CT at our centre and compare the performance with that of CT for localization of infection, dissemination and response to therapy...

PURPOSE: Noninvasive stress testing is commonly performed as part of pre-renal transplantation (RT) evaluation. We evaluated the prognostic value of myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI)-myocardial perfusion, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and heart rate response (HRR)-post-RT. METHODS: Consecutive RT recipients were identified at our institution. MPI was considered abnormal when there was a perfusion defect or reduced ejection fraction. HRR to vasodilator stress was calculated as percentage change from baseline...

PURPOSE: We analysed a correlation between pre- to post-treatment primary tumour metabolic volume (PT-MV) reduction on 18F-FDG-PET/CT and survival in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients treated with chemoradiotherapy (CRT). METHODS: Sixty consecutive patients with NSCLC stage IIIA-B (UICC 7th edition), treated with chemoradiotherapy, who underwent 18F-FDG-PET/CT at the same institution before and 6 weeks after treatment, were analysed. Different metabolic response values were investigated on their correlation with survival parameters: complete response (100% PT-MV reduction); major response (80-99% PT-MV reduction); moderate response (50-79% PT-MV reduction); minor response (1-49% PT-MV reduction) and non-response (no change or increase in uptake)...

PURPOSE: To prospectively compare diagnostic accuracies for detection of bone metastases by 68 Ga-PSMA PET/CT, 18 F-NaF PET/CT and diffusion-weighted MRI (DW600 -MRI) in prostate cancer (PCa) patients with biochemical recurrence (BCR). METHODS: Sixty-eight PCa patients with BCR participated in this prospective study. The patients underwent 68 Ga-PSMA PET/CT, a 18 F-NaF PET/CT and a DW600 -MRI (performed in accordance with European Society of Urogenital Radiology guidelines, with b values of 0 and 600 s/mm2 )...

PURPOSE: To compare the sensitivity and specificity of 18F-fluordesoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT), 18F-FDG PET/magnetic resonance (18F-FDG PET/MR) and 18F-FDG PET/MR including diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) in the detection of sentinel lymph node metastases in patients suffering from malignant melanoma. MATERIAL & METHODS: Fifty-two patients with malignant melanoma (female: n = 30, male: n = 22, mean age 50...

PURPOSE: The value of FDG PET-derived parameters in predicting overall survival (OS), local relapse-free survival (LRFS) and distant relapse-free survival (DRFS) in treated patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) was evaluated. METHODS: This retrospective evaluation included 55 MPM patients treated between March 2006 and February 2015 with FDG PET/CT-guided salvage helical tomotherapy (HTT) after previous surgery plus chemotherapy. Univariate Cox regression analysis was performed to assess the impact of the following FDG PET-derived parameters: biological target volume (BTV), mean and maximum standardized uptake values (SUVmean/max ), metabolic tumour volume (MTV) and total lesion glycolysis (TLG), measured using different uptake thresholds (40%, 50% and 60%)...

PURPOSE: We evaluated the feasibility of dynamic stress 201 Tl/rest 99m Tc-tetrofosmin SPECT imaging using a cardiac camera equipped with cadmium-zinc-telluride detectors for the quantification of myocardial perfusion reserve (MPR). METHODS: Subjects with stable known or suspected coronary artery disease (CAD) who had undergone or were scheduled to undergo fractional flow reserve (FFR) measurement were prospectively enrolled. Dynamic stress 201 Tl/rest 99m Tc-tetrofosmin SPECT imaging was performed using a dedicated multiple pinhole SPECT camera with cadmium-zinc-telluride detectors...

INTRODUCTION: Radiolabelled autologous white blood cells (WBC) scintigraphy is being standardized all over the world to ensure high quality, specificity and reproducibility. Similarly, in many European countries radiolabelled anti-granulocyte antibodies (anti-G-mAb) are used instead of WBC with high diagnostic accuracy. The EANM Inflammation & Infection Committee is deeply involved in this process of standardization as a primary goal of the group. AIM: The main aim of this guideline is to support and promote good clinical practice despite the complex environment of a national health care system with its ethical, economic and legal aspects that must also be taken into consideration...

In the latest update of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines for the management of infective endocarditis (IE), imaging is positioned at the centre of the diagnostic work-up so that an early and accurate diagnosis can be reached. Besides echocardiography, contrast-enhanced CT (ce-CT), radiolabelled leucocyte (white blood cell, WBC) SPECT/CT and [18 F]FDG PET/CT are included as diagnostic tools in the diagnostic flow chart for IE. Following the clinical guidelines that provided a straightforward message on the role of multimodality imaging, we believe that it is highly relevant to produce specific recommendations on nuclear multimodality imaging in IE and cardiac implantable electronic device infections...
