Abstract Two patients with aortoiliac occlusive disease underwent dynamic and late-static positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) acquisitions with 257 and 244 MBq F-18 FDG (CT scan parameters 50 mAs, 120 kV, pitch 1.25). Three-dimensional reconstructions revealed an occluded aortic stent and a high-grade aortic stenosis and demonstrated the relations of vascular pathologies to adjacent structures. Early-dynamic PET can be performed without additional radioactive tracer and may...

OBJECTIVE. Early dynamic PET/CT is primarily used for oncologic perfusion studies. The purpose of this article is to show how the modality can be applied for angiography with data reconstructed in time-based frames for direct visualization of arterial vessels. CONCLUSION. Our initial data suggest that PET angiography can be used to establish patency and delineate relevant stenoses and occlusions. It therefore may be a useful complement to conventional angiography.

UNLABELLED: In addition to angiographic data on vascularity and vascular access, demonstration of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) liver nodule hypervascularization is a prerequisite for certain intrahepatic antitumor therapies. Early dynamic (ED) (18)F-FDG PET/CT could serve this purpose when the current standard method, contrast-enhanced (CE) CT, or other CE morphologic imaging modalities are unsuitable. A recent study showed ED (18)F-FDG PET/CT efficacy in this setting but applied a larger-than...

Positron emission tomography (PET) is actively used in a diverse range of applications in oncology, cardiology, and neurology. The use of PET in the clinical setting focuses on static (single time frame) imaging at a specific time-point post radiotracer injection and is typically considered as semi-quantitative; e.g., standardized uptake value (SUV) measures. In contrast, dynamic PET imaging requires increased acquisition times but has the advantage that it measures the full spatiotemporal distr...
