    Background: Radioiodine and Tc-99 m pertechnetate scans are routinely relied upon to detect metastasis in papillary thyroid cancer; false-positive scans are relatively rare. To our knowledge, no published reports exist of sarcoidosis causing such selectively false-positive scans. Methods: We...

    The article presents an analysis of stress fracture as the cause of spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis, and the type of diagnostic radiology beneficial for the evaluation of spondylolysis. It discusses two modes of diagnostic imaging to examine the presence of physiological activity at the pars...

    Today the majority of clinical molecular imaging procedures are carried out with single-photon emitters and gamma cameras, in planar mode and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) mode. Thanks to the development of advanced multi-pinhole collimation technologies, SPECT imaging of...

    To develop a combined SPECT/CT based on a conventional gamma camera with the following design goals: (i) the subject is scanned on the same bed without moving between SPECT and CT scans, (ii) maintenance of full diagnostic utility of both scanners, (iii) a minimal equipment footprint which is...

  • The added value of SPECT-CT in the detection of heterotopic ossification on bone scintigraphy. Ghanem, Mohammad A.; Dannoon, Shurouq; Elgazzar, Abdelhamid H. // Skeletal Radiology;Feb2020, Vol. 49 Issue 2, p291 

    Purpose: Heterotopic ossification (HO) is the abnormal osteogenesis in non-skeletal tissue. It can be difficult to detect, as it can mimic other conditions clinically and on imaging studies. The purpose of this study was to find the added value of SPECT-CT in accurate detection of...

    Objectives: Subjective tinnitus has associated with abnormal brain metabolism and perfusion found in functional imaging studies by fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) and technetium99m (TC99m). But there is no study evaluating the association of brain metabolism and perfusion abnormalities in a group of...
