BACKGROUND: Diagnosis of protein loss into the gastrointestinal tract using noninvasive techniques is challenging. In people, scintigraphy not only is a sensitive tool to confirm protein-losing enteropathy (PLE), but it also allows for localization of protein loss. HYPOTHESIS/OBJECTIVES: To investigate the feasibility of (99m) Tc-labeled human serum albumin (HSA) scintigraphy in dogs with PLE in comparison with control dogs. ANIMALS: A total of 8 clinically healthy control research dogs and 7 client-owned dogs with gastrointestinal clinical signs and hypoalbuminemia (serum albumin concentration <2...

PURPOSE: Diagnosis for right-to-left shunt was determined by the assessment of shunt-rate, which was obtained by using (99 m)Tc-macroaggregated albumin. However, it is difficult to diagnose right-to-left shunt, using the normal level of shunt-rate measured by using conventional methods. To solve this problem, we investigated ourselves the normal level of shunt-rate. METHOD: We researched 20 patients with pulmonary embolism, and they didn't have right-to-left shunt...

A 74-year-old woman with liver cirrhosis and chronic kidney disease (CKD) who had complained of chronic abdominal distension due to prominent ascites presented with sudden dyspnea. Chest radiography showed massive right pleural effusion that shifted the mediastinum. Peritoneal scintigraphy using 99mTc-macroaggregated albumin revealed pleuroperitoneal communication (PPC). As her hydrothorax was refractory and frequent thoracentesis did not improve her respiratory distress, thoracoscopic surgery was performed for repair of the diaphragm defect...

Liver function assessment by hepatocyte-specific contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging is becoming a new biomarker. Liver function can be assessed by T1 mapping (reduction rate) and signal intensity measurement (relative enhancement ratio) before and after GD-EOB-DTPA (gadoxetic acid) administration, as alternative to Tc-99m galactosyl serum albumin scintigraphy, 99m Tc-labeled mebrofenin scintigraphy, and indocyanine green clearance test. Magnetic resonance imaging assessment of liver function can enable diagnosis of cirrhosis, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease associated fibrosis and steatohepatitis, primary sclerosing cholangitis, toxic hepatitis, and chemotherapy and radiotherapy-related changes, which may be only visible on hepatobiliary phase images...

INTRODUCTION: Gastrointestinal dysfunction is often described in patients with Parkinson disease (PD), and gastrointestinal symptoms are usually attributed to gastroparesis. The consequent delayed gastric emptying (GE) may be an important pharmacokinetic mechanism underlying some of the response fluctuations that develop after long-term levodopa (L-dopa) therapy.The aim of this prospective study was to assess GE time by a liquid meal scintigraphy, in PD patients, and to correlate them with demographic, clinical, and therapeutic data...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Melanoma is a disease that has an increasing incidence worldwide. Sentinel lymph node scintigraphy is a diagnostic tool that offers important information regarding the localization of the sentinel lymph nodes offering important input data to establish a pertinent and personalized therapeutic strategy. The golden standard in body contouring for sentinel lymph node scintigraphy is to use a planar flood source of Cobalt-57 (Co-57) placed behind the patients, against the gamma camera...

(99)mTc macroaggregated albumin (MAA) scintigraphy is always performed before administration of (90)Y--microspheres for the treatment of liver tumors for hepatopulmonary shunt calculation. Tumor thrombus visualization in the hepatic vasculature is an infrequent finding on the (99)m Tc--MAA single photon emission computed tomography. We present a rare case of a hepatocellular carcinoma extending as a tumor thrombus through hepatic vein, inferior vena cava into the right atrium.

The aim of the present study was to determine the distribution of lung blood in a modified bilateral Glenn procedure designed in our institute with lung perfusion scintigraphy. Sixteen consecutive patients who underwent modified bilateral Glenn operation from 2011 to 2014 were enrolled in the study. The control group consisted of 7 patients who underwent bidirectional Glenn shunt. Radionuclide lung perfusion scintigraphy was performed using Tc-99m-macro aggregated albumin (MAA) in all patients. For the patients in modified bilateral Glenn group, the time at which the radioactivity accumulation peaked did not differ significantly between the right and left lung field (t = 0...

A 52-year-old woman presenting with dyspnea was referred for a ventilation and perfusion scan (VQ). VQ images (with Tc-DTPA [diethylene triamine pentaacetic acid aerosol] and Tc-MAA [macroaggregated albumin]) initially appeared normal; however, count rates on perfusion images were similar to ventilation images, implying little Tc-MAA had reached the lungs. Spot images of the injected extremity demonstrated focal Tc-MAA accumulation worrisome for a venous thrombus, subsequently confirmed by Doppler ultrasound...

BACKGROUND: Pre-operative evaluation of lung cancer patients relies on calculation of predicted post-operative (PPO) lung function based on split lung function testing. Pulmonary perfusion (Q) PET/CT can now be performed by substituting Technetium-99 m labeling of macroaggregated albumin (MAA) with Gallium-68. This study compares Q PET/CT with current recommended methods of pre-operative lung function assessment. METHODS: Twenty-two patients planned for curative surgical resection (mean FEV1 77 %, SD 21 %; mean DLCO 66 %, SD 17 % predicted) underwent pre-operative Q PET/CT...

A 67-year-old male presented with dyspnea for which lung scintigraphy was ordered to rule out pulmonary embolus. Planar images demonstrated abnormal midline uptake of Tc-99m macroaggregated albumin, which SPECT/CT localized to several thoracic vertebrae. Thoracic vertebral uptake on perfusion lung scintigraphy was previously described on planar imaging. Radionuclide venography and contrast-enhanced CT subsequently demonstrated superior vena cava (SVC) obstruction with collateralization through the azygous/hemiazygous system and vertebral venous plexus...

Peritoneal radionuclide scan is an established imaging modality for evaluating peritoneopleural communications. In this case report, unusual mediastinal lymph node radiotracer uptake is seen in a patient with portal hypertension on peritoneal scintigraphy. This was suspected to be due to marked lymphatic enlargement from longstanding portal hypertension since childhood, permitting passage of the large Tc-99m MAA particle. The nodes were morphologically benign on CT. Mediastinal lymph node uptake on peritoneal scintigraphy is rare but should not raise undue clinical concern, particularly in a patient with chronic portal hypertension...

Polysplenism and accessory spleen are congenital, usually asymptomatic anomalies. A rare case of polysplenism with ectopic spleen in pelvis of a 67-year-old, Caucasian female is reported here. A transvaginal ultrasound found a soft well-defined homogeneous and vascularized mass in the left pelvis. Patient underwent MRI evaluation and contrast-CT abdominal scan: images with parenchymal aspect, similar to spleen were obtained. Abdominal scintigraphy with 99mTc-albumin nanocolloid was performed and pelvic region was studied with planar scans and SPECT...
