Abstract:A 38-year-old woman with known von Hippel-Lindau syndrome underwent In-111 pentetreotide (OctreoScan) scintigraphy to evaluate a suspected pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor. The patient had undergone surgical resection of a left adrenal pheochromocytoma and a large right cerebellar hemangiobl

Single photon emission computed tomography – computed tomography (SPECT-CT) is an emerging dual-modality imaging technique with many established and potential clinical applications in the field of oncology. To date, there has been a considerable emphasis on the benefits of integrated positron emission tomography – computed tomography (PET-CT) in oncology, but relatively little focus on the clinical utility of SPECT-CT. As with PET-CT, accurate co-registration of anatomical and functional data fr...

Abstract:An 87-year-old woman with primary hyperparathyroidism underwent Tc-99m sestamibi (MIBI) scintigraphy. Planar imaging demonstrated focal tracer uptake in the mediastinum and adjacent to the inferior pole of the right lobe of the thyroid gland. SPECT-CT acquisition accurately localized the ab

OBJECTIVE. Imaging of endocrine neoplasms often involves a combination of anatomic and functional techniques including sonography, CT, MRI, and scintigraphy. Recent technologic advances have enabled hybrid imaging using SPECT-CT, which combines anatomic and functional techniques to allow accurate localization of tumors, increased detection of recurrent and metastatic disease, and exclusion of physiologic uptake.CONCLUSION. SPECT-CT provides improved specificity and diagnostic confidence helping ...

Editor: We read with interest the article by Dr Groves and colleagues (1), in the September 2006 issue of Radiology, on physicians’ knowledge of radiation exposure during imaging for suspicion of pulmonary embolism (PE) in pregnancy. The authors highlight some important aspects; however, some of the conclusions regarding lung scintigraphy are misleading. Most research on imaging for PE has been performed in nonpregnant patients, and the largest studies specifically excluded pregnant women (2,3)....

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, haematological malignancy, and immunosuppression for transplantation and autoimmune disorders have led to a large increase in immunocompromised patients. Neck masses are relatively common in this patient group and include both opportunistic and severe manifestations of common infections, benign hyperplasia, and primary or secondary malignancies. Although biopsy may be necessary for definitive diagnosis, features on cross-sectional imaging may suggest...

Thymoma is an uncommon tumour, which is often asymptomatic and may be detected coincidentally on cross-sectional imaging performed for other reasons. We report a case of thymoma detected on myocardial scintigraphy performed for suspected coronary artery disease. Extracardiac pathology may be suggested by abnormal non-cardiac tracer uptake on myocardial scintigraphy. An awareness of the potential causes of this is essential to allow potentially life threatening non-cardiac disorders to be recogni...
