BACKGROUND: More than 50% of patients with major depressive episode (MDE) fail to respond to initial treatment with first line pharmacological therapy. Altered receptor and serotonin transporter function are considered to be associated with mental disorders. Our investigation aimed on the density of the HT1A receptor in mesiotemporal cortex (MTC) and raphe measured by F18-Mefway in patients with MDD. METHODS: Patients with untreated clinically suspected major depressive episode were recruited fr...

Imaging prostate cancer and metastases either by morphologic radiological approach or nuclear medicine methods has not fulfilled the expectations of the clinicians until several years. PSMA—prostate-specific membrane antigen—which can be labeled with positron-emitting isotopes mostly 68Ga—changed this setting substantially. Prostate cancer is the most common tumor entity in men worldwide and the third leading cause of cancer-related death in men in Europe and the USA. Biochemical relapse is a fr...

BACKGROUND: 68Ga-PSMA is a widely useful PET/CT tracer for prostate cancer imaging. Being a transmembrane protein acting as a glutamate carboxypeptidase enzyme, PSMA is highly expressed in prostate cancer cells. PSMA can also be labeled with 64Cu, offering a longer half-life and different resolution imaging. Several studies documented bio-distribution and pitfalls of 68Ga-PSMA as well as of 64Cu- PSMA. No data are reported on differences between these two variants of PSMA. Our aim was to evaluat...

Thyroid malignancies are relatively rare cancer types but have a substantially high incidence in the group of all endocrine malignancies. Most thyroid cancer patients have differentiated thyroid cancer and prognosis is generally favourable. Tumour growth tends to be slow and radioiodine therapy is successful in differentiated cell tumour type with the ability to accumulate iodine. So, where can 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG PET) imaging be applied? The role of FDG PET ...

Psychiatrische Manifestationen von Dengue Virus Infektionen werden nur sehr selten berichtet. Wir stellen den Fall eines 21-jahrigen Mannes vor, der wahrend eines Aufenthaltes in Indien 1 Woche nach Abklingen eines fieberhaften Infektes eine vorwiegend psychiatrisch gepragte Symptomatik entwickelte: Konzentrations- und Merkfahigkeitsstorungen, Verwirrtheit, eine depressiv getonte Wahnsymptomatik und Agoraphobie. Liquorbefunde und Bildgebung mit CT und MR waren weitgehend unauffallig, im FDG PET ...

Die Syphilis ist eine rekurrente Treponematose mit akuter und chronischer Verlaufsform. Im Allgemeinen erfolgt die Ubertragung uber sexuelle Transmission oder congenital. Die primare Syphilis zeigt sich als einzelne und schmerzfreie Lasion, die sekundar auftretende Bakteriamie wird von Haut- und Schleimhautlasionen begleitet. Die tertiare Erkrankungsform kann an Knochen und auch jegliche andere Organe disseminieren, hauptsachlich sind Aorta ascendens und das Zentralnervensystem betroffen. Durch ...
