  • Myocardial damage of the entire ventricular region in a patient with acute myocardial infarction 

    Kawamata, Hirofumi؛ Kawasaki, Tatsuya؛ Sugihara, Hiroki؛ Matoba, Satoaki (Asia Oceania Federation of Nuclear Medicine & Biology, 2020-01-01)
    Technetium-99m-pyrophosphate (99mTc-PYP) has been used, in combination with thallium-201, to estimate the site and extent of myocardial infarcts. We report a case of acute myocardial infarction with severe ...

  • Cut off value of technetium uptake in the differential diagnosis of Graves, disease and subacute thyroiditis 

    Demir, Fadime (Asia Oceania Federation of Nuclear Medicine & Biology, 2020-01-01)
    Objective(s):The aim of this study was to determine whether technetium (99mTc) uptake is a relevant method for the differential diagnosis of Graves disease and subacute thyroiditis and ...

  • Pericardial sarcoidosis presenting as PUO diagnosed on FDG PET CT scan 

    Solav, Shrikant؛ Patil, Abhijit Mahaveer؛ Savale, Shailendra؛ Salunke, Deepak (Asia Oceania Federation of Nuclear Medicine & Biology, 2020-01-01)
    Pyrexia of unknown origin (PUO) is a common problem in day-to-day practice. FDG PET CT is an established investigation that aids in identifying the cause of PUO. Due to its high sensitivity PET detects an occult hypermetabolic ...

  • Role of FDG-PET/CT in Assessing the Correlation Between Blood Pressure and Myocardial Metabolic Uptake
