REVIEW
Ajay Kumar, Harry T Chugani
PET and SPECT can play an important role in the evaluation of various epileptic syndromes, particularly those with unknown causes, by revealing various underlying abnormalities that may not be fully appreciated from MR imaging studies. In some cases, PET and SPECT provide crucial data that guide surgical resections of the epileptogenic zone for medically refractory epilepsy. In other cases, these neuroimaging modalities preclude a surgical option and can guide genetic studies. Longitudinal PET and SPECT studies may increase our understanding of the etiopathogenesis of epilepsy syndromes and provide a clearer picture of the natural history of neurologic progression...

REVIEW
Ajay Kumar, Harry T Chugani
Epilepsy is one of the most common yet diverse neurologic disorders, affecting almost 1%-2% of the population. Presently, radionuclide imaging such as PET and SPECT is not used in the primary diagnosis or evaluation of recent-onset epilepsy. However, it can play a unique and important role in certain specific situations, such as in noninvasive presurgical localization of epileptogenic brain regions in intractable-seizure patients being considered for epilepsy surgery. Radionuclide imaging can be particularly useful if MR imaging is either negative for lesions or shows several lesions of which only 1 or 2 are suspected to be epileptogenic and if electroencephalogram changes are equivocal or discordant with the structural imaging...

Many variables can influence the results of gastric emptying scintigraphy (GES). A lack of methodologic standardization may cause variability, limit comparisons, and decrease the credibility of the test. To address this, in 2009, the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) published a procedure guideline describing a standardized, validated GES protocol for adults. Laboratories must closely follow the consensus protocol to provide valid and standardized results and improve patient care. The Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) evaluates compliance with guidelines as part of the accreditation process...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Zaid Haddadin, Vivian Lee, Christopher Conlin, Lei Zhang, Kristi Carlston, Glen Morrell, Daniel Kim, John M Hoffman, Kathryn Morton
Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) measurements are critical in patients with hepatic cirrhosis but potentially erroneous when based on serum creatinine. New equations for estimated GFR (eGFR) have shown variable performance in cirrhotics, possibly because of inaccuracies in reference methods for measured GFR (mGFR). The primary objective was to compare the performance of 4 improved eGFR equations with a 1-compartment, 2-sample plasma slope intercept (99m)Tc-DTPA mGFR method to determine whether any of the eGFR calculations could replace plasma (99m)Tc-DTPA mGFR in patients with cirrhosis...

Our aim was to comparatively assess dual-tracer PET/CT ((68)Ga-DOTATATE and (18)F-FDG) and multimodality anatomic imaging in studying metastatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) of unknown primary (CUP-NETs) scheduled for peptide receptor radionuclide therapy for divergence of tracer uptake on dual-tracer PET/CT, detection of primary, and overall lesion detection vis-a-vis tumor proliferation index (MIB-1/Ki-67). Methods: Fifty-one patients with CUP-NETs (25 men, 26 women; age, 22-74 y), histopathologically proven and thoroughly investigated with conventional imaging modalities (ultrasonography, CT/contrast-enhanced CT, MRI, and endoscopic ultrasound, wherever applicable), were retrospectively analyzed...

Although prior studies showed that patients with cirrhosis have a lower risk of developing liver metastases, appropriate workup of incidental liver masses in cirrhotic liver is important for a correct diagnosis. Here we present a case of newly diagnosed liver cirrhosis with multifocal hepatic lesions, which was initially categorized as a LI-RADS (Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System) 5 lesions. Scintigraphy with (111)In-pentetreotide (Octreoscan) indicated a suspected thyroid nodule, later confirmed to represent medullary thyroid carcinoma lesion...

(99m)Tc, the most common radioisotope used in nuclear medicine, is produced in a nuclear reactor from the decay of (99)Mo. There are only a few aging nuclear reactors around the world that produce (99)Mo, and one of the major contributors, the National Research Universal (Canada), ceased production on October 31, 2016. The National Research Universal produced approximately 40% of the world's (99)Mo supply, so with its shut down, shortages of (99)Mo/(99m)Tc are expected. Methods: Nuclear pharmacies and nuclear medicine departments throughout the United States were contacted and asked to provide their strategies for coping with a shortage of (99)Mo/(99m)Tc...

Gadolinium is toxic and to avoid its deposition in tissues, it must be chemically bonded with nonmetal ions to facilitate its excretion by the kidneys. High signal intensity in the dentate nucleus (DN) and globus pallidus (GP) on unenhanced T1-weighted MR images has been both morphologically and pathologically linked to gadolinium-based contrast agent (GBCA) retention in the brain. The purpose of this study was to determine whether repeated administrations of GBCA would affect the uptake of (18)F-FDG in the DN and GP on PET/CT...

We present a case study of a 56-y-old man who was admitted with acute abdominal pain and was found to have retroperitoneal hematoma from a ruptured duodenal aneurysm. (99m)Tc-diisopropyliminodiacetic acid cholescintigraphy showed incidental absent transit of radiotracer into the distal duodenum and severe enterogastric reflux, thought to be secondary to duodenal obstruction from the hematoma. Findings were confirmed on esophagogastroduodenoscopy, and the patient improved after subsequent gastrojejunostomy.
