The Detection of Uterine Leiomyoma (Fibroid) Calcifications on 18F-NaF PET/CT.

Summary of "The Detection of Uterine Leiomyoma (Fibroid) Calcifications on 18F-NaF PET/CT."

Uterine leiomyomas (fibroids) are the most common type of uterine neoplasms in premenopausal women. Leiomyomas are estrogen dependent and tend to atrophy and shrink in size after menopause. Dystrophic calcification, cystic changes, and necrosis are among the changes that indicate uterine fibroid involution. We are presenting a calcified uterine leiomyoma in a 61-year-old woman as incidentally detected on F-NaF PET/CT scanning. Many previous publications have reported the accumulation of F-NaF in soft tissue calcifications; these findings further set new directions in the evaluation of the metabolic activity of macrocalcification and microcalcification using molecular imaging probes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical removal of a LEIOMYOMA of the UTERUS.

A benign tumor derived from smooth muscle tissue, also known as a fibroid tumor. They rarely occur outside of the UTERUS and the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT but can occur in the SKIN and SUBCUTANEOUS TISSUE, probably arising from the smooth muscle of small blood vessels in these tissues.

Detection of drugs that have been abused, overused, or misused, including legal and illegal drugs. Urine screening is the usual method of detection.

Inflation of a balloon catheter within the uterine cavity to control UTERINE HEMORRHAGE.

Measurement or recording of contraction activity of the uterine muscle. It is used to determine progress of LABOR, OBSTETRIC and assess status of pregnancy. It is also used in conjunction with FETAL MONITORING to determine fetal response to stress of maternal uterine contractions.
