AIM 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET/computerized tomography (CT) is a valuable method in the diagnosis of malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM). But, some infections, particularly tuberculosis, are known to mimic cancer. We aimed to compare the FDG PET/CT findings of tuberculosis pleurisy (TP) and malignant mesothelioma and evaluate its role of differential diagnosis. MATERIAL AND METHOD We retrospectively reviewed the data from 85 patients (45 patients with MPM and 40 patients with TP) who unde...

OBJECTIVE Papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) is the most common endocrine malignancy. Despite good prognosis being generally associated with PTC, persistent/recurrent disease can be observed in a not negligible number of patients. Accurate postoperative management can lead to a significant improvement of risk stratification/staging of PTC patients identifying those at higher risk of a more aggressive clinical course. Molecular tests were introduced at the beginning of the 2000s to improve PTC risk s...

PURPOSE The aim of the study was to assess the prognostic value of pretreatment PET/computed tomography (CT) scans in colorectal cancer (CRC) patients with unresectable metastasis. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the pretreatment PET/CT images of 82 CRC patients with unresectable metastasis and their medical records. On PET/CT images, maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) of primary tumor, highest SUVmax of metastatic tumors and number of metastatic organs were identified....

OBJECTIVE High-grade gliomas (HGGs) carry dismal prognosis with survival typically reported as less than a year. We explored the predictive value of qualitative and quantitative evaluations of post-treatment 99m-technetium-labelled methoxyisobutylisonitrile (99mmTc-MIBI) brain single-photon emission computed tomography-computed tomography (SPECT/CT) tumor uptake in relation to overall survival (OS) in patients with HGG. METHODS Thirty patients with pathologically or radiologically documented hig...

[18F]NaF PET imaging is a useful tool for measuring regional bone metabolism. However, due to tracer in urine, [18F]NaF PET images of the hip reconstructed using filtered back projection (FBP) frequently show streaking artifacts in slices through the bladder leading to noisy time-activity curves unsuitable for quantification. This study compares differences between quantitative outcomes at the hip derived from images reconstructed using the FBP and ordered-subset expectation maximization (OSEM) ...

INTRODUCTION In 1978, O'Reilly introduced the diuretic renogram using the F + 20 method. Initially, the patient was examined in the seated position. A dose of 40 mg furosemide was injected intravenously 20 min following tracer injection and dynamic acquisition was prolonged for 15-20 min. In 1992, the guidelines suggested to study patients in the supine position to avoid risk of diuretic-induced hypotension and reduce patient movement. Unfortunately, equivocal findings were reported in 15-30% of...

OBJECTIVE To study the sensitivity and specificity of MRI and bone SPECT-CT in detecting the pain generator in ankle and foot pain with diagnostic dilemma. METHODS Retrospectively data of patients with ankle or foot pain who underwent both MRI and Bone SPECT-CT were analyzed. The lesions and probable pain generator sites were reported as per MRI and bone SPECT-CT findings. These lesions were correlated clinically, managed accordingly and followed up. The patients who had significant improvement ...

AIM To assess the prognostic role of metabolic parameters on 18F-FDG PET/CT & correlation with molecular markers in IDH-1 wild-type GBM. METHODS A total of 129 patients with brain lesions showing equivocal findings on baseline MRI who were referred for fluoro-deoxy-glucose PET/CT were analyzed. Of these, 50 underwent surgery/biopsy and postoperative histopathological diagnosis of IDH-1 wild-type GBM. SUVmax, metabolic tumor volume (MTV), total lesion glycolysis (TLG) & T/w ratio was calculated. ...

PURPOSE We sought to investigate the performance of radiomics analysis on baseline 18F-FDG PET/CT for predicting response to first-line chemotherapy in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty-five patients who received first-line rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone (R-CHOP) chemotherapy for DLBCL were included in the study. Radiomics features and standard uptake value (SUV)-based measurements were extracted from baseline PET images for a...
