Fundic accommodation assessed by SPECT scanning: comparison with the gastric barostat
- Validation of ictal single photon emission computed tomography with depth encephalography and epilepsy surgery. Thadani, Vijay M.; Siegel, Alan; Lewis, Petra; Siegel, Adrian M.; Jobst, Barbara C.; Gilbert, Karen L.; Darcey, Terrance M.; Roberts, David W.; Williamson, Peter D. // Neurosurgical Review;Jan2004, Vol. 27 Issue 1, p27
Many centers have reported that ictal single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) localizes regions of seizure onset with greater sensitivity and specificity than interictal SPECT. Here we report interictal and ictal SPECT scan results in both lesional and nonlesional cases. Using...
- Bremsstrahlung emission from interactions between two dressed dust grains in dusty plasmas. Jung, Young-Dae // Physics of Plasmas;Aug2001, Vol. 8 Issue 8
Bremsstrahlung emission from interactions between two dressed grains charged with the same sign in dusty plasmas are investigated using the classical trajectory method. An interaction potential model taking into account the cross terms of shield effects is applied to describe the interaction...
- The significance of bremsstrahlung SPECT/CT after yttrium-90 radioembolization treatment in the prediction of extrahepatic side effects. Ahmadzadehfar, Hojjat; Muckle, Marianne; Sabet, Amir; Wilhelm, Kai; Kuhl, Christiane; Biermann, Kim; Haslerud, Torjan; Biersack, Hans-Jürgen; Ezziddin, Samer // European Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging;Feb2012, Vol. 39 Issue 2, p309
Purpose: Unwanted deposition of Y microspheres in organs other than the liver during radioembolization of liver tumours may cause severe side effects such as duodenal ulcer. The aim of this study was to evaluate the significance of posttherapy bremsstrahlung (BS) SPECT/CT images of the liver in...
- Should SPET attenuation correction be more widely employed in routine clinical practice? Ficaro, Edward P. // European Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging;2002, Vol. 29 Issue 3, p409
Focuses on the protagonistic views for the practice of single-photon emission tomography correction. Accuracy for detection of coronary heart diseases; Improvements for the diagnostic reproducibility of myocardium; Comparison with the other alternatives.
- Should SPET attenuation correction be more widely employed in routine clinical practice? Wackers, Frans T. // European Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging;2002, Vol. 29 Issue 3, p412
Focuses on the antagonistic view for the practice of single-photon emission tomography correction. Comments on the performance of attenuation correction; Question on the validity of the correction software package; Insufficiency in quantitative analysis.
- Frequency of abnormal stress SPECT-MPI studies decreased in past two decades. Cox, Amber; Dellapena, Deb // Cardiology Today;May2013, Vol. 16 Issue 5, p25
The article cites a research which shows a progressive decrease in the frequency and severity of abnormal stress-rest single-photon emission computer tomography-myocardial perfusion imaging (SPECT-MPI) studies between 1991 and 2009, citing further details on the study findings.
- Molecular gastrin receptor localisation in mice using high-resolution SPET-MRI image fusion. Schurrat, Tino; Alfke, Heiko; Béhé, Martin; Maina, Theodosia; Nock, Berthold; Mäcke, Helmut; Heverhagen, Johannes T.; Klose, Klaus J.; Halling, Horst; Behr, Thomas M.; Schramm, Nils // European Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging;2003, Vol. 30 Issue 5, p800
Presents an image demonstrating the biodistribution of [sup99m]Tc-Demogastrin using a high-resolution single photon emission tomography camera in a mouse bearing an AR4-2J subcutaneous tumor. Observation of high gastrin uptake in intermediate magnetic resonance signal areas.
- Tc-MAA/Y-Bremsstrahlung SPECT/CT after simultaneous Tc-MAA/Y-microsphere injection for immediate treatment monitoring and further therapy planning for radioembolization. Ahmadzadehfar, Hojjat; Sabet, Amir; Muckle, Marianne; Wilhelm, Kai; Reichmann, Karl; Biersack, Hans-Jürgen; Ezziddin, Samer // European Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging;Jul2011, Vol. 38 Issue 7, p1281
Purpose: An angiographic evaluation combined with Tc-macroaggregated albumin (Tc-MAA) scanning should precede the treatment of any selected candidates for radioembolization (RE) of the liver. If the tumours in one liver lobe have not been targeted in the test angiogram, it should be repeated....
- Guest-editorial: Applications of SPECT in cognitive neuroscience, neurology and psychiatry. David J. Wyper; Daniela Montaldi // Behavioural Neurology;2000, Vol. 12 Issue 1/2, p1
