18F-sodium fluoride (NaF) is a PET bone imaging agent and is commonly used in imaging patients with cancer; however, similar to technetium-99m medronic acid (99mTc-MDP), it can be useful in the evaluation of benign bone and joint conditions.
Not only are current imaging techniques - cone-beam computed tomography (CT), CT, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - becoming more precise in capturing data, but the illustration and interpretation of the acquired images is no longer limited to conventional display screens or projectors.
To assess the determinants of the participation rate in breast cancer screening programs by conducting a systematic review of reviews.
68Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) ligands are novel PET radiotracers for prostate cancer. These radiotracers also localize in the normal renal cortex to a high degree and can demonstrate parenchymal defects.
Despite the extensive controversy and debate of penile girth augmentation, high demands for such procedures are increasing. Penile inflammation is not common sequel after penile filler augmentation, but when it occurs, it has serious complications that sometimes necessitate emergency surgical intervention.
The object of the case report is to present a case of spontaneous rupture of the renal pelvis with no underlying pathological condition to account for the rupture, a very rare and unusual occurrence.
COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) is a recently emerged pulmonary infection caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). It started in Wuhan, China, in December 2019 and led to a highly contagious disease.
68Ga-DOTA NOC PET-CT imaging has been shown to have high accuracy for the evaluation of neuroendocrine tumours. We report a case of a 3-year-old boy who presented with a right paravertebral soft tissue mass. Biopsy showed ganglioneuroblastoma.
The failure of scaphoid reconstruction by restoring both length and shape may lead to carpal mal-alignment and progressive degenerative arthritis. The aim of our study is to find a reliable method to find out the scaphoid length without measuring the contralateral scaphoid.
Fluorine-18-sodium fluoride (18F-NaF) is a positron emission tomography (PET) bone imaging agent mainly used for oncology staging but may also be used in the evaluation of benign bone and joint pathology conditions.
Vertebral artery loop formation is a rare anatomical variant capable of causing bony erosion, encroachment on cervical neural foramen, neurovascular compression, or vertebrobasilar insufficiency.
The objective with this study was to search for and to analyze the presence of scientific papers, guidelines, and recommendations in dental literature regarding which radiographs should be prescribed after a dento-alveolar trauma.
Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT) is the primary treatment for patients suffering from relapsing or advanced prostate cancer (PC). Hormone therapy generally guarantees adequate clinical control of the disease for some years, even in those patients affected by widespread skeletal and soft tissue metastases.
Diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) for CT part of positron emission tomography-CT (PET-CT) examinations are limited. The study was aiming to execute the second phase of the national DRL in support of optimisation and dose reduction in State of KW.
Chylothorax is the accumulation of chyle in the pleural cavity as a result of damage to the lymphatic ducts. We treated a young man who was a kidney transplant recipient who had a prior internal jugular vein permanent catheter for hemodialysis, who developed dyspnea and hypoxemia.
Acute asthma is a common medical emergency that is often poorly assessed and managed. Initial evaluation should include a review of historical factors for identifying high risk patients; appropriate evaluation of the current exacerbation, including an objective assessment of airflow obstruction; and, in parallel, initiation of therapy with controlled oxygen therapy, regular bronchodilator therapy and, in most cases, systemic corticosteroids.
Bertolotti syndrome is a form of low-back pain associated with lumbosacral transitional vertebrae. We report a case of a 34-year-old woman with breast cancer presented with severe low-back pain.
Fabella is a sesamoid bone, located within the tendon of the lateral head of the gastrocnemius muscle. It may be associated with posterolateral knee pain because of repetitive friction over the posterolateral femoral condyle.
