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...

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...

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...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this paper was to analyse our own semi-quantitative method of assessing focal lesions localised in pre-operative diagnostic scintigraphy of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) using 99mTc-MIBI with washout and comparing these data with the result of the histopathological examination (HP). MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 40 (37 female, 3 male, average age 58.7 years) patients with a suspicion of PHPT were enrolled for prospective analysis. Dual phase planar and SPECT/CT examination with 99mTc-MIBI were performed...

We reported a case of torsion of the undescended testis in a 9-month-old boy which was diagnosed with 99mTc testicular scin-tigraphy. The scan showed diffuse increased activity in the location of the undescended testis and no photopenic area was visible. At surgery, torsion of the undescended testis was detected and fixed.

This report describes a case of brain death (BD) evaluated by 99mTc-hexamethylpropylene amine oxime (HMPAO) single photon emission tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT). A 16-year-old boy with a history of rapid unexpected brain herniation due to pilocytic astrocytoma underwent 99mTc-HMPAO SPECT/CT for evaluation of brain death in the context of organ donation. Flow images demonstrated lack of blood flow to the brain, and delayed images showed absence of demonstrable radionuclide activity within the brain...

Axillary lymph node metastasis (ALNM) from cancer except breast cancer is rare. Whole body 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) that simultaneously offers anatomic and metabolic information is widely used and has become an effective modality in many clinical fields, especially oncology, and also may detect an unexpected metastasis. We report two cases of ALMN of nasopharyngeal and cervical cancer that was detected on whole body PET/CT.

Medullary carcinoma of the thyroid (MTC) commonly spreads through the lymphatics to distant sites such as lung, liver and bone. Spread to the breast is rare. We report a case of metastatic MTC which progressed to develop nodal metastases to cer-vical and mediastinal regions, visceral metastases to the liver, lung and ultimately to bilateral breasts. Clinically it is important to distinguish metastatic breast lesions from primary breast cancer as each is managed differently. Both cytological and radio-logical investigations were done followed by excision biopsy...

We report a case of 71-year-old female patient, previously treated with chemotherapy and surgical resection of sigmoid tract of the large bowel for adenocarcinoma (pT3N1M0), who underwent a 18F-FDG PET/CT for a suspicious hepatic lesion detected at CT scan during follow-up. 18F-FDG PET/CT showed no abnormal uptake in the liver both at 60 minutes and 120 minutes after injection but revealed a pathological uptake in two breast nodules, (one localized in upper-internal-quadrant of the right breast and the other in the upper-external-quadrant of the left breast)...
