BACKGROUND: Because of an increasing number of boards and conferences, the number of second opinion readings of externally acquired image data is growing dramatically. In this review article we intend to give medical and legal recommendations for the documentation and interpretation of externally acquired radiological data for second opinions and board presentations based on German jurisdiction. METHOD: Using the FAQ format as a dialog between radiologists and medical legal experts, we answer the most crucial questions regarding correct documentation and interpretation for externally acquired radiological image data based on an up-to-date literature search...

Previous findings of our group showed the chemokine receptor CXCR4 as a suitable target in PET/CT-imaging of axial bone infections, early postoperative osteomyelitis and periprosthetic infections. The aim of this study was to verify specific uptake of 68 Ga-Pentixafor in chronic osteomyelitis. METHODS: 29 consecutive patients who underwent 68 Ga-Pentixafor-PET/CT with clinically suspected osteomyelitis were evaluated retrospectively. Bone tissues of 6 patients were available and evaluated by immunohistochemical staining for CXCR4 and autoradiography with 68 Ga-Pentixafor...

AIM: To investigate the prognostic value of F-18 FDG PET metabolic parameters in patients with anal carcinoma with and without human immunodeficiency virus infection (HIV). METHODS: Maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax ), mean standardized uptake value (SUVmean ), metabolic tumor volume (MTV) and total lesion glycolysis (TLG) were obtained on F-18 FDG PET/CT images of treatment-naïve patients with locally advanced anal squamous cell carcinoma (ASSC). We compared patients' characteristics and F-18 FDG PET metabolic metrics between the HIV-infected patients and the HIV-uninfected patients...

AIM: The aim of this study was to establish normal values for thyroid uptake of 99mtechnetium pertechnetate (99m TcO4 ) as a function of age, sex and circadian rhythm in mice. METHODS: In 12 female (F) and 12 male (M) C57BL/6N mice, nine consecutive SPECT images of 10 min duration each were acquired as dynamic acquisitions beginning 5 min after intravenous injection of 80 MBq 99m TcO4 . Each mouse was imaged in follow-up studies up to 24 months (A: 1 month; B: 3 months; C: 6 months; D: 12 months; E: 24 months)...

INTRODUCTION: Bone pain from multifocal blastic or mixed lytic-blastic metastatic lesions can be effectively addressed with radiopharmaceuticals with high affinity for such foci. 153 Sm-ethylene diamine tetramethylene phosphonic acid (153 Sm-EDTMP) and 177 Lu-ethylene diamine tetramethylene phosphonic acid) (177 Lu-EDTMP) are two such radiopharmaceuticals. The aim of this study was to make a comparison of efficacy between 153 Sm-EDTMP and 177 Lu-EDTMP in terms of palliation of commonly encountered symptoms in cancer patients, functional status, and pain intensity as measured by Edmonton Symptom Assessment System (ESAS), Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status, and numeric rating scale (NRS) respectively...

INTRODUCTION: Xerostomia following radioiodine therapy (RIT) in patients suffering from differentiated thyroid cancer is a common side effect in 2 % to 67 % of patients treated with radioiodine (I-131). In order to evaluate the impact of sialendoscopy on health related quality of life (HRQOL) in patients suffering from therapy induced sialadenitis and xerostomia, we analyzed findings from two dedicated questionnaires (Xerostomy Questionnaire XQ and Xerostomy Inventory XI) in patients before and three months after sialendoscopy...

OBJECTIVES: Low-dose-computed tomography (LD-CT) is used in nuclear medicine hybrid imaging (e.g., SPECT/CT) for attenuation correction of emission data and anatomical correlation of findings. However, there are currently no standards for image quality (e. g., detectability) comparable to those for diagnostic CT. Therefore, the aim of this explorative study was to evaluate retrospective LDCT data in terms of CT image quality and detectability of anatomical structures. METHODS: Two readers blindly scored abdominal LD-CT images (n = 40 patients) in terms of detectability (n = 20 structures/patient), image quality, and readers' confidence in scoring the image quality for a clinically hybrid imaging protocol...

Version 4 of the procedural guideline for Iodine-131 whole-body scintigraphy (WBS) in differentiated thyroid carcinoma is an update of the version 3, which was published by the "Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nuklearmedizin" (DGN) and the "Deutsche Gesellschaft für Medizinische Physik" (DGMP) in 2007. This procedural guideline advises on how to best perform I-131 whole body scintigraphy after I-131 therapy or after application of a diagnostic I-131 activity. The updated relevant medical indications for I-131 whole body scintigraphy are given in this procedural guideline...

AIM: Combined internal-external radiotherapy (CIERT) requires a unified assessment of biologic radiation effects in addition to the total dose. The concept of biological effective dose (BED) was evaluated in a cell model. METHODS: The thyroid NIS-positive cell line FRTL-5 was irradiated with X-ray and the radiotracer Tc-99m pertechnetate either alone or in combination. The cellular uptake of the radionuclide during the incubation time of 24 h was controlled by the presence or absence of perchlorate...
