Molecular breast imaging (MBI) is a nuclear medicine test that uses dedicated gamma cameras designed for imaging of the breast. Despite growing adoption of MBI, there is currently a lack of guidance on appropriate quality control procedures for MBI systems. Tests designed for conventional gamma cameras either do not apply or must be modified for dedicated detectors. Our objective was to provide practical guidance for physics testing of MBI systems by adapting existing quality control procedures for conventional systems...

Rationale: Cerebral perfusion SPECT and 18 F-FDG PET/CT are commonly performed diagnostic procedures for patients suffering from epilepsy. Individuals receiving these tests are often in-patients undergoing examinations with EEG leads. We have routinely removed these leads before these tests due to concerns that they would lead to imaging artifacts. The leads would then be replaced at the conclusion of the scan. The goal of our study was to determine if the EEG leads actually do cause artifacts that could lead to erroneous scan interpretation or make the scan uninterpretable...

We herein report the clinical course and gratifying responses obtained in functioning metastatic neuroendocrine tumor (NET) with carcinoid heart disease (CaHD; uncontrolled by long acting octreotide) treated with 177 Lu-DOTATATE, that enabled taking the patient for corrective valvular surgery, in addition to its positive impact on the health related quality of life, symptomatic improvement (from baseline NYHA grade III to NYHA grade I after 6 cycles), disease stabilization and substantial reduction of 5-hydroxy indole acetic acid (5-HIAA) in the patient...

The goal of this article is to give an overview of mentoring for nuclear medicine technologists (NMT). Mentoring is an integral part of the training and practice in the field of nuclear medicine technology. There is a great need for NMTs to continue involvement in mentorship so that we can develop and maintain the talent and leadership that the field needs. In this article, definitions of mentorship will be provided. Then, how mentoring can work; including different methods and techniques will be covered. Next, the benefits of mentoring will be discussed...

Objective: To define the role of combined Tc-99m sulfur colloid bone marrow (SC BM) scintigraphy, single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT/CT), and chest CT in diagnosing diffuse pulmonary extramedullary hematopoiesis (PEMH) in patients with myelofibrosis (MF). Methods: We retrospectively reviewed Tc-99m SC BM scintigraphy scans performed at our institution for the diagnosis of diffuse PEMH, as well as accompanying chest CT and SPECT/CT imaging findings. Relevant clinical information, including respiratory manifestations, pulmonary hypertension (PH), and subjective response to whole-lung radiation therapy, was also summarized...

We present serial 18 F-FDG PET/CT findings in a case of Epstein-Barr virus positive pulmonary lymphomatoid granulomatosis, grade 3. The patient experienced transient complete response to R-CHOP chemotherapy and subsequent multi-system recurrence, predominately involving the subcutaneous region of the torso on 18 F-FDG PET/CT. Biopsy of the most hypermetabolic subcutaneous lesion demonstrated EBV negative cutaneous lymphomatoid granulomatosis, grade 1. This report highlights the role of 18 F-FDG PET/CT in characterizing and monitoring disease progression and regression, as well as its limitation in accurate grading of multisystem recurrence given the diversity of clinical and histopathological feature of lymphomatoid granulomatosis...

The objective of this study was to develop instant thin layer chromatography (ITLC) conditions for the determination of radiochemical purity (RCP) of 68 Ga-DOTATATE in a shorter time period than those stated in the NETSPOT (Advanced Accelerator Applications, Saint-Genis-Pouilly, France; AAA) kit package insert (PI). A faster ITLC system is needed to reduce the current 48-50 minutes development time; so that (1) more radioactivity is available for single patient use as the generator ages and (2) wait times are shorter in the event of kit failure...

Parallax error is a pitfall of pinhole scintigraphy which causes mislocalization of the objects. It is important to notice this error on pinhole thyroid and parathyroid scintigraphy and obtain additional images with parallel-hole collimator to accurately determine the upper and lower margins of large goiter and nodules and location of the ectopic thyroid tissue and parathyroid adenomas. In this teaching case report we wanted to revisit pinhole parallax error, present pinhole and SPECT/CT images of a case with large hyperactive thyroid nodule and review the literature and potential solutions to this important problem...

We report the synthesis of radioactive gold nanoparticles in a single step process with appropriate activity and size to be used in cancer treatment and diagnosis. Methods: A 2 mM solution of gold chloride (HAuCl4), 1 mM of polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP, M.W: 360,000), and 60 mM of 2-propanol was prepared in deionized water. Seven different samples of the solution were irradiated in a total neutron flux of 7.45 x 1012 n/cm2 s in a research reactor for 0.5, 1, 3, 5, 10, 30, and 60 minutes. The resulting nanoparticles were characterized for morphology and chemical composition using a Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and ImageJ...

A 21-year-old man presented with polyuria and polydipsia and was discovered to have diabetes insipidus due to eosinophilic granuloma of the hypothalamus. 18 F FDG-PET/CT for metastatic work-up revealed an intensely FDG avid hypothalamic mass and no other sites of disease.

Program development and review is a central part of institutional and industry quality assurance. Traditional approaches, while well established, present a number of barriers that could undermine process integrity and quality outcomes. Here a new approach to program development and design is explored with the goal of enhancing outcomes for students and institutions.
