Fluorine-18-sodium fluoride (F-NaF) PET/CT is a relatively new and high-resolution bone imaging modality.
Prostate cancer care in the Middle East is highly variable and access to specialist multidisciplinary management is limited. Academic tertiary referral centers offer cutting-edge diagnosis and treatment; however, in many parts of the region, patients are managed by non-specialists with limited resources.
Breast cancer within the region continues to present challenges to the healthcare services. Strategies to shed light on clinical gaps could better support country-specific circumstances. The aims of the mapping study were to identify the gaps in the evidence base, for the management of breast cancer with relevance to Bahrain and the Gulf Region.
To compare the diagnostic performance and inter-observer agreement of five different CT chest severity scoring systems for COVID-19 to find the most precise one with the least interpretation time.
On reviewing our cases of hydatid disease seen over a period of 20 years (1978-1998), we encountered a number of unusual radiological appearances and sites
Migraine frequently is associated with White Matter Hyperintensities (WMHs). We aimed to assess the frequency of WMHs in migraine and to assess their risk factors.
The purpose is to provide a comprehensive report describing the clinical and imaging features of Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)-related acute invasive fungal sinusitis (AIFS) and associated comorbidities.
The primary invasive granulomatous form of fungal sinusitis, due to inhalation of aspergillus spores, is commonest in the Sudan and the Gulf states.
Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) has emerged as an important cause of acute coronary syndrome and sudden cardiac death. The triggers for SCAD often do not include traditional atherosclerotic risk factors.
The complex nature of ankle fractures is magnified when seen in patients at high risk of soft tissue wound healing complications. The major categories include associated soft tissue injury, diabetes, tobacco use, peripheral vascular disease, malnutrition, alcoholism, and corticosteroid use.
18F-FDG PET/CT has been found useful for the detection of the source of infection/inflammation in the body. Platelet-rich plasma is a new treatment modality in which plasma is injected subdermally or intradermally for potential hair regrowth into the scalp.
18F-NaF PET/CT has a rapid single-pass extraction and fast clearance from soft tissues, resulting in a good target-to-background ratio. This study aimed to establish the optimum acquisition time and dosimetry for 18F-NaF PET/CT to evaluate bone metastases in obese patients.
18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET-CT is an excellent imaging modality for the evaluation of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). We report a case of a 45-year-old woman presented with a large right breast mass and suspicious right axillary lymph nodes referred for 18F-FDG PET-CT for staging.
Kenny-Caffey Syndrome is a rare syndrome characterized by growth retardation, uniformly small slender long bones with medullary stenosis, thickened cortex of the long bones, hypocalcemia possibly with tetany at an early age, hyperphosphatemia, ocular abnormalities, and normal intelligence.
To study the manifestations of intracranial tuberculoma in Kuwait and to provide guidelines for the diagnosis and management of intracranial tuberculoma in developing countries, where the disease is common and facilities are limited.
A pacemaker, which is used for heart resynchronization with electrical impulses, is used to manage many clinical conditions. Recently, the frequency of pacemaker implantation procedures has increased to more than 50% worldwide. During this procedure, patients can be exposed to excessive radiation exposure.
The goal of this micro-Computed-Tomography (μCT) study was to characterize the structural parameters of natural, early proximal enamel caries lesions and correlate them with two-dimensional radiographic findings.
68Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) ligands are used for prostate cancer but also show high renal cortical uptake. In this study, we aimed to assess whether there is any correlation between renal PSMA PET parameters and renal function tests using the images of prostate cancer patients.
