Purpose null We compared the ability of 68Ga-FAPI PET//CT with 18FDG PET/CT imaging techniques to detect additional lesions in breast cancer patients that may affect further chemotherapy options. null Methods null A total of 48 patients with breast cancer underwent concurrent 68Ga-FAPI-04 and 18FDG PET/CT regardless of whether they had received chemotherapy or not in the last month before imaging. Both modalities were compared according to various parameters: clinical/pathological features, numb...

The objective of the study was to characterize benign lesions showing increased 68Ga-FAPI-04 uptake on FAPI PET/CT. We retrospectively reviewed 182 patients with suspected various cancers who were performed 68Ga-FAPI-04 PET/CT imaging from August 2020 to December 2020. The diagnoses of the benign lesions were made by the CT findings (CT), other imaging information (OII) (contrast enhance CT, FDG PET, ultrasound, MRI or others), clinical information (CI) (medical history, laboratory examination, ...

OBJECTIVES Serial changes of focal uptake in whole-body dynamic positron emission tomography (PET) imaging were assessed and compared with those in early-delayed imaging to differentiate pathological uptake from physiological uptake in the colorectal area, based on the change in uptake shape. METHODS In 60 patients with at least 1 pathologically diagnosed colorectal cancer or adenoma, a serial 3 min dynamic whole-body PET/computed tomography imaging was performed four times around 60 min after t...
OBJECTIVE p38α, a member of the mitogen-activated protein kinase superfamily, is ubiquitously expressed in a variety of mammalian cells. Activated p38α induces inflammatory responses to external stimuli, suggesting that non-invasive detection of activated p38α would be valuable for diagnosing inflammatory diseases. For this purpose, we designed radiolabeled compounds [123I]2-IR and [123I]4-IR based on a potent p38α selective inhibitor R1487 for use with single photon emission computed tomography...

Glioma is the most common type of central nervous system tumor reported worldwide. Current imaging technologies have limitations in the diagnosis and assessment of glioma. The present study aimed to confirm the diagnostic efficacy and safety of anti-1-amino-3-[18F]fluorocyclobutane carboxylic acid (18F-fluciclovine; anti-[18F]FACBC) as a radiotracer for patients undergoing combined positron emission tomography and computed tomography (PET/CT) for suspected glioma. Combined data from two multicen...

BACKGROUND Although patients with differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) generally have a good prognosis, patients with a large metabolic tumor volume (MTV) on FDG-PET may experience poor clinical courses. We measured organ-based MTVs and tested its prognostic performance in comparison to conventional MTV (cMTV). METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the cases of 280 patients who received their first I-131 therapy in 2003-2014 at our hospital and showed an FDG-avid metastatic lesion. We randomly divi...

Objective null In the [123I]FP-CIT single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) examination, the specific binding ratio (SBR), calculated from the ratio of the striatal specific to extra-striatal background non-specific binding in the brain, is now commonly used as a quantitative index of parkinsonian syndrome. The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of count reduction on the SBR and to clarify the reliability of SBR values in patients with shorter scan times. null Methods n...

The prognostic value of treatment response in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated with immune-checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) shown by 18F-fludeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) results obtained with multiple types of PET scanners using standardized uptake value (SUV) harmonization was evaluated. Fifty-eight patients treated with ICIs who underwent 18F-FDG PET/CT examinations with nine types of PET scanners at six hospitals were enrolled...

Objective null 5-(1-(2-[18F]fluoroethoxy))-[3-(6,7-dimethoxy-3,4-dihydro-1H-isoquinolin-2-yl)-propyl]-5,6,7,8-tetrahydronaphthalen ([18F]MC225) is a selective substrate for P-glycoprotein (P-gp), possessing suitable properties for measuring overexpression of P-gp in the brain. This is the first-in-human study to examine safety, radiation dosimetry and P-gp function at the blood-brain barrier (BBB) of [18F]MC225 in healthy subjects. null Methods null [18F]MC225 biodistribution and dosimetry were ...

OBJECTIVE In patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC), serum thyroglobulin levels measured at the time of remnant ablation after thyroid hormone withdrawal were shown to have prognostic value for disease-free status. We sought to evaluate serial thyroglobulin measurements at the time of recombinant human thyroid-stimulating hormone (rhTSH)-aided iodine 131 (131I) adjuvant treatment as prognostic markers of DTC. METHODS Six hundred-fifty patients with DTC given total/near-total thyroi...
