BACKGROUND: Clinically confirmed incidents of acute pyelonephritis (APN) following recurrent infections of urinary tract (UTI) form basic risk factors for renal scarring in children. Vesico-uretheral reflux (VUR) of higher grade is additional risk factor for this scarring. Opinions on diagnostic value of summed sequential images of renal uptake phase (SUM) of dynamic renal scintigraphy in detection of renal scars are diverse. However, several publications point to higher diagnostic efficacy of clearance parametric images (PAR) generated from this study...

BACKGROUND: Labeled leukocyte scintigraphy (LS) is considered a valuable tool in preoperative diagnosis of prosthetic joint infections (PJI). The aim of this study was to determine the accuracy of LS combined with bone marrow scintigraphy (BMS), as well as inflammation markers CRP and WBC, in detecting infection in patients with prosthetic joints. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This study included patients suspected of having PJI between January and September 2013 at the Vienna General Hospital who underwent imaging with 99mTc-HMPAO labeled autologous leukocytes and subsequent BMS...

BACKGROUND: Technetium Tc99m Exametazime (99mTc-HMPAO) is currently used as a radiopharmaceutical for determining regional cerebral blood flow and for the labelling of autologous leucocytes for infection and inflammation imaging. The HMPAO ligand exists in two diastereomeric forms: d,l and meso. Usually, the substance is obtained in low chemical yield in a time consuming procedure. Furthermore, the final product still contains some amounts of the meso-form. The aim of this study was to develop the efficient, reliable and fast method for isolation of the d,l-HMPAO, which would provide the ligand with high purity and free from the meso-diastereomer...

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to semiquantitatively assess the degree of myocardial fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake in glucose-loaded myocardial viability positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scans, to calculate the myocardial to background index, and correlate the index with image quality assessed on the basis of visual qualitative assessment. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The myocardial FDG-PET/CT study was carried out in 69 non-diabetic patients, who had known coronary artery disease, by intravenous injection of 250 ± 70 MBq (range: 180-320 MBq) FDG...

A 4-year old girl presenting gait difficulty was referred for spine X-ray and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). MRI showed several diffuse hypointense signals in sacral and lumbar vertebrae. In order to exclude a possible lymphoproliferative disease a 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG-PET/CT) was requested. The PET/CT scan confirmed the MRI findings and demonstrated additional findings in the sternum. Therefore, a bone marrow biopsy was performed and a diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia - early B type was made...

REVIEW
Vincenzo Cuccurullo, Giuseppe Danilo Di Stasio, Luigi Mansi
Radioguided surgery (RGS) is a surgical technique that, using intra-operative probes, enables the surgeon to identify tissues preoperatively "marked" by a radiopharmaceutical. Somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) are present in the majority of neuroendocrine cells and may be over-expressed not only by tumor cells, but also by endothelial cells of peritumoral vessels, inflammatory cells and cells of the immune system, such as activated lymphocytes, monocytes and epithelioid cells. This extra neoplastic uptake is the rationale for the use of radiolabeled somatostatin analogs (SSAs) either in some tumors not expressing SSTRs or in various non-oncological diseases...

REVIEW
Mahdiyeh Shamsi, Jalil Pirayesh Islamian
Breast cancer is the most frequent cancer in women and it is the main reason of cancer-related deaths of women worldwide. Different types of breast cancer diagnostic examinations are also available, such as mammography, MRI, biopsy, ultrasound and molecular imaging. Radionuclide-based imaging methods including SPECT and PET are useful in early diagnosis and treatment of the cancer. The radiolabeling of chemo drugs with nanoparticles should be recommended from the standpoint of an early diagnosis and effective treatment of breast cancer...

BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to examine whether parametric clearance images (PAR) enhance diagnostic potential of a dynamic renal scintigraphy with detection of local dysfunction of kidneys, on a model of kidneys after treatment with extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), MATERIAL AND METHODS: Kidneys after ESWL were accepted as a proper model for the implementation of this objective because of the previously proven damaging effect of a shock wave on renal parenchyma and known region of ESWL application...

BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to evaluate whether there is any association between myocardial ischemia, common risk factors and carotid artery ultrasound parameters in asymptomatic type 2 diabetic (DMT2) patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 60 asymptomatic DMT2 patients (pts) without known coronary artery disease (CAD) underwent one day rest Dypiridamole stress Tc-99m sestamibi single photon emission computed tomography myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS)...

The recent large use of the Cyclone® Plus Storage Phosphor System, especially in European countries, as imaging system for quantification of radiochemical purity of radiopharmaceuticals raised the problem of setting the periodic controls as required by European Legislation. We described simple, low-cost methods for Cyclone® Plus quality controls, which can be useful to evaluate the performance measurement of this imaging system.

BACKGROUND: Tumor hypoxia induces the expression of several genes via the hypoxia-inducible transcription factor-1 alpha (HIF-1a). It is associated with the prognosis of several cancers. We studied the immunohistochemical expression of HIF-1a in patients with invasive ductal cancer (IDC) of the breast and the possible correlation with the maximum standardized uptake value of the primary tumor (pSUVmax) as well as other biological parameters. Prognostic significance of pSUVmax and expression of HIF-1a for the prediction of progression-free survival (PFS) was also assessed...

BACKGROUND: The work compares the results of shortened gated myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI), processed with "Myovation Evolution" software, with a study performed in a standard way. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted in a group of 95 patients (56 males and 39 females, age 62 ± 9 years, BMI 28 ± 4) with known or suspected CAD, without clinical history or any signs of a previous myocardial infarction. All patients underwent coronary angiography (CA) within 3 months of MPI...

BACKGROUND: Acquiring a high quality image has assigned an important concern for obtaining accurate diagnosis in nuclear medicine. Detector is a critical component of Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) imaging system for giving accurate information from exact pattern of radionuclide distribution in the target organ. The images are strongly affected by the attenuation, scattering, and response of the detector. The conventional detector is mainly made from sodium iodide activated by thallium [NaI(Tl)] in nuclear medicine imaging...
