OBJECTIVES Quantitative single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) with computed tomography (SPECT/CT) is known to improve diagnostic performance. Although SPECT-alone systems are used widely, accurate quantitative SPECT using these systems is challenging. This study aimed to improve the accuracy of quantitative bone SPECT of the lumbar spine with the SPECT-alone system. METHODS The cross-calibration factor (CCF) was measured using three kinds of phantoms and the optimal values were dete...

BACKGROUND In the last years, some studies on the usefulness of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose PET/computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) for the evaluation of male breast cancer (MBC) have been produced. The aim of this review is to analyze the usefulness of 18F-FDG PET/CT and its diagnostic performances for the assessment of MBC. METHODS A wide literature search of the PubMed/MEDLINE, Scopus, Embase and Cochrane library databases was made to find relevant published articles on the role of 18F-FDG PET/CT...

AIM To determine the impact of 18F-FDG PET/computed tomography (CT) on clinical staging in bladder cancer with comparison to conventional CT and MRI. METHODS A total of 142 patients who underwent 18F-FDG PET/CT imaging with a diagnosis of bladder cancer between 1 June 2019 and 31 December 2020 were screened retrospectively. Seventy patients who underwent diagnostic CT or MRI within 2 months before or after PET/CT were included in the study. The N and M stages determined by CT, MRI and PET/CT acc...

Objective null T cell lymphomas are associated with an aggressive worse prognosis. This study is designed to assess T cell lymphomas using 18F-FDG PET/CT. null Methods null Sixty-four patients with newly diagnosed T cell lymphomas underwent PET/computed tomography (PET/CT) scans, 47 cases who were fully followed up were retrospectively reviewed and analyzed. Overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) were recorded for prognosis. We measured the maximum standardized uptake value (S...

OBJECTIVE To assess the condylar growth activity (CGA) with quantitative bone single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) to establish reference values of maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) and cutoff values for identifying active unilateral condylar hyperplasia (UCH) in different ages. METHODS We analyzed the CGA of 58 UCH patients and that of 125 volunteers as a control group by SUVmax of quantitative bone SPECT/CT imaging. The SUVmax and the uptake differ...

Objective null 131I-meta-iodobenzylguanidine (131I-MIBG) combined with myeloablative chemotherapy represents an effective treatment in children affected by relapsed/refractory neuroblastoma (NBL) for disease palliation and in improving progression-free survival. The aim of our study is to evaluate the feasibility, safety and efficacy of tandem 131I-MIBG followed by high-dose chemotherapy with Melphalan. null Methods null Thirteen patients (age range: 3-17 years) affected by relapsed/refractory N...

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to establish the correlation between a CAC score derived from the CT component of PET/CT scan (CAC-PET) using in-house software as compared to the conventional technique (CAC-Standard). In addition, the incidence of high CAC scores in asymptomatic cancer patients with low-to-intermediate cardiovascular risk will be determined. METHODS 100 patients referred for oncologic PET/CT were prospectively recruited to have a conventional CAC score after their PET/CT. Pat...

PURPOSE The true impact of postoperative radioiodine therapy on survival has been controversial for patients with poorly differentiated thyroid carcinoma (PDTC). We aimed to determine the impact of postoperative radioiodine on survival in PDTC through a population-based study. METHODS Data on patients with PDTC were collected from the US SEER database (2004 to 2015). Patients were divided into the radioiodine group and nonradioiodine group. Survival comparison between groups was evaluated by Kap...

OBJECTIVE Treatment of chondrosarcomas is grade based; intralesional curettage for grade 1 and resection for grade 2 or more. Currently used methods to determine grades before surgery are not highly accurate and create a dilemma for the surgeon. We have used a PET-CT combined with imaging to answer the following study questions: (1) Does SUVmax value from an 18F-FDG PET/CT correlate with the grade of chondrosarcoma? (2) Can a cutoff SUVmax value be used to differentiate between various grades of...

Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) using radiolabelled somatostatin analogues such as 177-lutetium DOTATATE is an effective treatment modality for neuroendocrine tumours, paragangliomas, and neuroblastomas. However, renal and haematopoietic toxicities are the major limitations of this therapeutic approach. The renal toxicity of PRRT is mediated by renal proximal tubular reabsorption and interstitial retention of the radiolabelled peptides resulting in excessive renal irradiation that c...
