BACKGROUND: Pheochromocytomas are rare neuroendocrine tumors, with a malignancy frequency of approximately 10%. The treatment of malignant pheochromocytoma is palliative, and the traditional management strategy has limited efficacy. Furthermore, no clear criteria exist for the treatment of metastatic pheochromocytoma, especially for unresectable lesions. We report a case of complete remission of metastatic pheochromocytoma in 123I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scintigraphy after a single session of 131I-MIBG therapy...

Childhood neuroblastoma is a heterogenous disease with varied clinical presentation and biology requiring different approaches to investigation and management. Meta-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) is an essential component of metastatic staging for neuroblastoma and has been used as a treatment strategy for relapsed and refractory neuroblastoma. However,10% of children with neuroblastoma will have 123I-MIBG non-avid imaging and up to 60% with relapsed and refractory neuroblastoma will require further treatment with 131I-MIBG, alternative radioisotopes have been investigated for imaging and treatment...

OBJECTIVE: Radionuclide therapy with low-energy auger electron emitters may provide high antitumor efficacy while keeping the toxicity to normal organs low. Here we evaluated the usefulness of an auger electron emitter and compared it with that of a beta emitter for tumor treatment in in vitro models and conducted a dosimetry simulation using radioiodine-labeled metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) as a model compound. METHODS: We evaluated the cellular uptake of 125I-MIBG and the therapeutic effects of 125I- and 131I-MIBG in 2D and 3D PC-12 cell culture models...

A 47 year old man presented with a combination of dry mouth and lightheadedness while standing. His medical background was unremarkable except for cigarette smoking and hyperlipidemia. Sjögren's syndrome was ruled out, and he was referred for evaluation of orthostatic hypotension, which by then included syncopal episodes and injuries. Additional symptoms included dry eyes, constipation, reduced sweating, and erectile dysfunction. After excluding medications and structural cardiac abnormalities as causes of orthostatic hypotension, a clinical autonomic evaluation was performed...

Fluorine-18 (18F)/Iodine-131 (131I)-labeled (4-Fluoro-3-iodobenzyl)guanidine (FIBG) have been a promising yet unattainable derivative of radioiodine-labeled meta-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG), because of the complex radiofluorination method. Here, we proposed a 2-step radiosynthetic method for 18F-FIBG, and evaluated the diagnostic and therapeutic potential of 18F-FIBG and 131I-FIBG in a pheochromocytoma model (PC-12). Methods:18F-FIBG was prepared from a (mesityl)(aryl)iodonium salt precursor in the presence of a copper-catalyst...

AIMS: Extent of cardiac sympathetic activation can be estimated from physiological parameters, blood biomarkers, and imaging findings. This study examined the prognostic value of three markers of sympathetic activity and their relationship to beta blocker dose in heart failure patients. METHODS AND RESULTS: A post hoc analysis of 858 heart failure subjects in the ADMIRE-HF trial was performed. Variables related to sympathetic activity were plasma norepinephrine, baseline heart rate, the heart to mediastinum (H/M) ratio of 123 I-mIBG uptake, and beta blocker dose...

A 25 year old female with known neurofibromatosis type 1 with a large anterior mediastinal mass was investigated. F18-FDG PET-CT revealed a radiotracer avid anterior mediastinal mass with SUVmax of 4.3 and demonstrating a hypoactive center. The Iodine-123 MIBG SPECT-CT study performed subsequently did not demonstrate any uptake, thereby excluding for the most part the diagnoses of paraganglioma or neuroblastoma. At final pathology, a malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour (MPNST) of the pericardium with areas of chondrosarcomatous and angiosarcomatous differentiation was diagnosed...

OBJECTIVES: Clinical difficulty to discriminate between the Alzheimer disease (AD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) has led researchers to focus on highly sensitive functional imaging modalities. The aim of the present study was to assess 131I-MIBG cardiac imaging to distinguish between AD and DLB. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Seventeen patients who were known cases of dementia underwent 131I-MIBG myocardial scintigraphy to differentiate AD from DLB. Planar and 131I-MIBG SPECT were obtained 2h after the injection of 1mCi 131I-MIBG on a dual head gamma camera...

Peptide-receptor imaging and therapy with radiolabeled somatostatin analogs such as (68)Ga-DOTA-TATE and (177)Lu-DOTA-TATE have become an effective treatment option for SSTR-positive neuroendocrine tumors. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the correlation of somatostatin receptor-2 (SSTR2) expression with (68)Ga-DOTA-TATE uptake and (177)Lu-DOTA-TATE therapy in neuroblastoma (NB) xenograft models. We demonstrated variable SSTR2 expression profiles in eight NB cell lines. From micro-PET imaging and autoradiography, a higher uptake of (68)Ga-DOTA-TATE was observed in SSTR2 high-expressing NB xenografts (CHLA-15) compared to SSTR2 low-expressing NB xenografts (SK-N-BE(2))...

Acute aortic dissection is the most common acute aortic syndrome. It is more prevalent in males and in the elderly, and has a high mortality. Hypertension is the main risk factor. Diagnosis is based on clinical features, laboratory tests and imaging exams. Treatment is usually surgical, although in some cases an endovascular approach is an alternative. Paraganglioma is an uncommon neuroendocrine tumor. Most produce catecholamines, and so usually manifest with hypertensive crisis, palpitations, headache and sweating...

Background: Selegiline enhances the patient's endogenous dopamine by inhibiting dopamine metabolism. The efficacy of selegiline monotherapy for drug-naïve Parkinson's disease (PD) patients may depend on the degree of dopaminergic neuronal degeneration. (123)I-Ioflupane single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and (123)I-meta-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) myocardial scintigraphy are diagnostic methods to assess the pharmacological and pathological changes in PD. Objective: We examined the utility of these imaging methods to predict the efficacy of selegiline monotherapy for motor symptoms in drug-naïve PD patients...

PURPOSE: Segmentation of contrast-enhanced CT and measurement of SPECT point spread function (PSF) are usually required for conventional partial volume correction (PVC). This study was to develop a segmentation-free method with blind deconvolution (BD) and anatomical-based filtering for SPECT PVC. METHODS: The proposed method was implemented using an iterative BD algorithm to estimate the restored image and the PSF simultaneously. An anatomical-based filtering was implemented at each iteration to reduce Gibbs artifact and suppress noise amplification in the deconvolution process...
