  • Different acquisition arcs for better imaging left ventricular wall in myocardial perfusion single photon emission tomography. 
  • Whole body bone SPET/CT can successfully replace the conventional bone scan in breast cancer patients. A prospective study of 257 patients. 
  • Technetium-99m-pertechnetate whole-body SPET/CT scan in thyroidectomized differentiated thyroid cancer patients is a useful imaging modality in detecting remnant thyroid tissue, nodal and distant metastases before 131I therapy. A study of 416 patients. 
  • Changes in esophageal mucosal morphology and in growth of breast feeding rats fed with milk of low or high temperature. 
  • Erdheim-Chester disease diagnosed by 99mTc-MDP bone scintigraphy and brief literature review. 
  • Pituitary gland and bone involvement of Langerhans cell histiocytosis in a boy and brief review of the literature. 
  • More than the prostate: Intrapancreatic accessory spleen and papillary thyroid cancer detected with 18F-PSMA PET/CT. 
  • Renal output efficiency and normalized residual activity examined by technetium-99m-DTPA renography have by far greater specificity to diagnose obstructive disease as compared to other conventional parameters of the renogram. First such study of output efficiency. 
  • Iodine-125 labeled Australian frog tree host-defense peptides caerin 1.1 and 1.9 better inhibit human breast cancer cells growth than the unlabeled peptides. 125I-caerin 1.9 may better be used for the treatment of breast cancer. 
  • More accurate than MRI measurement of tumor size in breast cancer by using the peri-tumoral halo uptake layer method of the 18F-FDG PET/CT scan. 
  • CT-based tissue segmentation to assess knee joint inflammation and reactive bone formation assessed by 18F-FDG and 18F-NaF PET/CT: Effects of age and BMI. 
  • Global temporal lobe asymmetry as a semi-quantitative imaging biomarker for temporal lobe epilepsy lateralization: A machine learning classification study.
