The diagnostic capabilities of nuclear medicine imaging in the detection and assessment of the spread of laryngeal/hypopharyngeal cancer were studied. A total of 40 patients with histologically verified laryngeal and hypopharyngeal cancer and 20 patients with benign laryngeal lesions were included into the study. Submucosal injections of 99mTc-MIBI and 99mTc-Alotech were made around the tumor. Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) was performed 20 minutes after the injection of 99mTc-MIBI. Sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) were detected in 26 patients. In 18 hours after the injection of 99mTc-Alotech, SPECT was performed. In 24 hours after the injection of 99mTc-Alotech, intraoperative SLN detection was performed using Gamma Finder II. SPECT with 99mTc-MIBI revealed laryngeal and hypopharyngeal tumors in 38 of the 40 patients. The 99mTc-MIBI uptake in metastatic lymph nodes was visualized in 2 (17%) of the 12 patients. Twenty eight SLNs were detected by SPECT and 31 SLNs were identified using the i...

The purpose of this study was to compare Tc 99m MIBI SPECT imaging with computed tomography (CT) for assessment of post-radiotherapy treatment response in pharyngeal carcinoma. Twenty-two subjects took part in this study, which included six patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (Group I), three patients with oropharyngeal carcinoma and eight patients with hypopharyngeal carcinoma (Group II), and five control patients (Group III). All scans were analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively and corr...
Objectives To investigate particle size distribution and possible effects of colloid concentration and time after its preparation on the particle sizes of albumin nanocolloid (Nanocoll), rhenium sulfide nanocolloid (Nanocis) and tin colloid (Hepatate). Methods All three kits were prepared according to the manufacturers' instructions using the following volumes of decayed 99mTc generator eluate: 1.5鈥塵l, 3.5鈥塵l and 5.0鈥塵l (albumin nanocolloid); 1.0鈥塵l, 2.0鈥塵l and 3.0鈥塵l (rhenium sulfide nanocolloi...
Background and Objective We developed a new imaging system to detect sentinel nodes (SNs) using a novel fluorescent tracer, ATX-S10Na(II), and investigated its usefulness in an animal model. Study Design/Materials and Methods Human gastric carcinoma cells were implanted orthotopically into nude rats. ATX-S10Na(II) was injected subserosally into the primary tumor lesion, and visualized by a fluorescence spectro-laparoscope. Presence of tumor cells in lymph nodes (LNs) was determined by RT-PCR spe...

Purpose Despite the widespread use of sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy in breast cancer patients, some controversy exists about the correct management of extra-axillary nodes, especially those located in the internal mammary chain. The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence of SLNs in this region, calculate the lymphoscintigraphic and surgical detection rates and evaluate the clinical impact on staging and therapeutic decisions.

Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the feasibility of sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy in patients with gastric cancer for the assessment of regional lymph node status. Summary Background Data: SLN is the first draining node from the primary lesion, and it is the first site of lymph node metastasis in malignancy. SLN mapping and biopsy are of great significance in the determination of the extent of lymphadenectomy, allowing patients with gastric cancer to have a better quality of ...

Abstract Background Increasing evidence supports the sentinel lymph node (SN) concept for melanoma and breast cancers. SN biopsy may replace routine lymph node dissection in the treatment of these cancers. But there are little data evaluating this concept in patients with gastric cancer. The objective of this study was to test the feasibility of SN mapping in gastric cancers by using the dual-mapping procedure with dye and radioactive colloid. Study design Thirty-one consecutive patients preoper...

While fluorine-18 2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) is helpful in the pretherapeutic evaluation of head and neck cancer, it is only available in selected centres. Therefore, single-photon emission tomography (SPET) tracers would be desirable if they were to demonstrate tumour uptake reliably. This multitracer study was performed to evaluate the pretherapeutic uptake of the SPET tracers iodine-123 伪-methyl-L-tyrosine (IMT) and technetium-99m hexakis-2-methoxyisob...
The efficacy of a new radionuclide, thallium-199 for myocardial scintigraphy was compared with conventional thallium-201 imaging. Owing to the short half-life of thallium-199 (7.4 hours), when the injected dose of thallium-199 was increased to 200 MBq, the total dose reaching the critical organs was 3.6鈥15.5 times lower than with conventional nuclide, thallium-201. Studies were performed in a total of 177 patients. The patients were divided into two groups (a) 17 patients with acute myocardial i...

Abstract A multidisciplinary conference composed of the essential medical, surgical, dental, and allied specialists involved in the region of the head and neck, with resources to call upon other contributors when necessary, was undertaken at a major teaching center in the Northeastern U.S.A. (Long Island Jewish Hillside Medical Center). Meeting on a bimonthly basis with referrals accepted from all sources, but non-publicized, a total of 343 patients were seen over a period of 50 months. The resu...

Hypopharyngeal cancer (HPC) accounts for the lowest survival rate among all types of head and neck cancers (HNSCC). However, the therapeutic approach for HPC still needs to be investigated. In this study, a theranostic 188Re-liposome was prepared to treat orthotopic HPC tumors and analyze the deregulated microRNA expressive profiles. The therapeutic efficacy of 188Re-liposome on HPC tumors was evaluated using bioluminescent imaging followed by next generation sequencing (NGS) analysis, in order ...
