Preclinical and non-medicinal interventions are essential for preventing and treating cognitive decline in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Whole-body vibration (WBV) exercise is conducted on a platform that generates vertical sinusoidal vibrations, and WBV training may improve regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) and cognitive function, however, the underlying mechanism remains unclear. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether WBV exercise and a 24-week WBV training ...

Objective null Data involved the association between myocardial ischaemia and the outcome for unrevascularized coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) patients were limited. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the predictive value of ischaemia detected by single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) for the adverse events in unrevascularized CTO patients. We further explored whether ischaemia generated from CTO vessel can independently predict the ou...

Tubarial glands (TGs) are recently refocused gland tissues localized near the tori tubarius in the nasopharynx and their clinical relevance is not clear yet. IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a progressive fibrosing condition and salivary glands are well-affected lesions. The aim of the present study is to examine [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose ([18F]FDG) accumulation to the tori tubarius in IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD). 48 patients with IgG4-RD who underwent positron emission tomography (PET) scanni...

Although xSPECT Bone (xB) provides quantitative single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) high-resolution images, patients’ burden remains high due to long acquisition time; therefore, this study aimed to investigate the feasibility of shortening the xB acquisition time using a custom-designed phantom. A custom-designed xSPECT bone-specific (xSB) phantom with simulated cortical and spongious bones was developed based on the thoracic bone phantom. Both standard- and ultra-high-speed (UHS...

With a 5-year overall survival of approximately 20%, lung cancer has always been the number one cancer-specific killer all over the world. As a fusion of positron emission computed tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT), PET/CT has revolutionized cancer imaging over the past 20 years. In this review, we focused on the optimization of the function of 18F-flurodeoxyglucose (FDG)-PET/CT in diagnosis, prognostic prediction and therapy management of lung cancers by computer programs. FDG-PET/C...

Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) expression status determination significantly contributes to HER2-targeted therapy in breast cancer (BC). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of radiomics and machine learning based on PET/CT images in HER2 status prediction, and to identify the most effective combination of machine learning model and radiomic features. A total of 217 BC patients who underwent PET/CT examination were involved in the study and randomly divided into a ...

To explore the effort of cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD) on regional cerebral perfusion in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) using NeuroGam™ software and evaluate the capability of brain perfusion single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in distinguishing MCI with and without CSVD. 34 amnestic MCI subjects entered this study, conducting neuropsychological tests, MRI and 99mTechnetium ethyl cystine dimer brain perfusion SPECT imaging. All subjects were divided into thos...

We aimed to evaluate the predictive value of FDG PET-CT scan and CEA measurements in recurrent colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. The records of 211 CRC patients who had FDG PET-CT scans between April 2009 and June 2011 due to suspicion of recurrence were extracted from the data of our previous report of 235 patients after 24 patients were excluded from the study due to lack of follow-up data or death unrelated to CRC. FDG PET-CT findings, simultaneous CEA levels, and survival data were evaluated...

OBJECTIVE Given the rarity of refractory pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma (PPGL), outcomes and prognostic factors after 131I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (131I-mIBG) treatment still remain unclear. Therefore, this study evaluated whether baseline characteristics at initial 131I-mIBG therapy and imaging response to repeated 131I-mIBG therapy could be prognostic factors for refractory PPGL. METHODS All patients [n = 59 (male/female = 35/24), median age; 49.3 years] with refractory PPGL who received 1...

Heart transplant rejection leads to cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV). 13N-ammonia positron emission tomography (PET) can be useful in detecting CAV, as it can evaluate both epicardial vessels and microvasculature. In this study, we evaluated the regional wall motion in heart transplant patients using our PET-specific feature-tracking (FT) algorithm for myocardial strain calculation and validated it using a cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) FT strain as a reference. A total of 15 heart ...
