AbstractGuidelines state that patients undergoing isotope glomerular filtration rate (GFR) tests should maintain adequate hydration, but pragmatically these tests can coincide with procedures requiring the patient not to eat or drink (‘nil-by-mouth’) for up to 12 hours beforehand. This study investigated the impact of a 12-hour nil-by-mouth regime on GFR measurement. Twelve healthy volunteers were recruited from our institution. Exclusion criteria included diabetes mellitus, being under 18 years...

Abstract Involved site lymphoma radiotherapy clinical target volumes (CTV) require expansion in the absence of treatment-position pre-chemotherapy PET-CT. This prospective imaging study evaluates CTV contouring for axillary lymphoma using diagnostic imaging compared with co-registered treatment-position PET-CT. Generous expansion axially and cranio-caudally is required to encompass pre-chemotherapy disease without treatment-position pre-chemotherapy PET-CT.

Objective:Large-vessel vasculitis (LVV) is a serious illness with potentially life-threatening consequences. (18Fluorine) fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (18F-FDG PET-CT) has emerged as a valuable diagnostic tool in suspected LVV, combining the strengths of functional and structural imaging. This study aimed to compare the accuracy of FDG PET-CT and contrast-enhanced CT (CECT) in the evaluation of patients with LVV.Methods:A retrospective database review for L...

Aim To evaluate the efficacy of single time-point half-body (skull base to thighs) fluorine-18 choline positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) compared to a triple-phase acquisition protocol in the detection of prostate carcinoma recurrence. Materials and methods Consecutive choline PET-CT studies performed at a single tertiary referral centre in patients with biochemical recurrence of prostate carcinoma between September 2012 and March 2017 were reviewed retrospectively. The i...

Aim To assess the feasibility and efficacy of a streamlined single time-point 99mTc-HYNIC-Tyr3-octreotide (Tektrotyd) somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (SRS) protocol to differentiate pathological uptake by neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) from physiological activity. Methods and materials Tektrotyd imaging in 50 consecutive patients with NETs was reviewed retrospectively. Imaging was independently assessed by two experienced reporters with dual-certification in radiology and nuclear medicine and ...

165Background: Detection of the extent of local recurrence and of metastases in biochemical recurrence (BCR) of prostate cancer facilitates selection of appropriate treatment. The FALCON trial (NCT02578940) assessed the impact of 18F-fluciclovine PET/CT on the clinical management of men with BCR of prostate cancer following initial radical therapy. Methods: Men being considered for curative-intent salvage therapy following first BCR were recruited at 6 UK sites. Management plans were documented ...

BACKGROUND: Pancreatic cancer diagnosis and staging can be difficult in 10-20% of patients. Positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) adds precise anatomical localisation to functional data. The use of PET/CT may add further value to the diagnosis and staging of pancreatic cancer. OBJECTIVE: To determine the incremental diagnostic accuracy and impact of PET/CT in addition to standard diagnostic work-up in patients with suspected pancreatic cancer. DESIGN: A multicentre prospect...
