Summary of "The effect of radionuclide solution volume on the detection rate of salivary aspiration in the radionuclide salivagram: A STROBE-compliant retrospective study."

Despite the possibility that the methodological difference of this salivagram may influence the results for detection rate, there has been no study on the effect of the solution volume on detection rate. Moreover, to date, since the introduction of the nucleotide salivagram, there has been a tendency that a constant solution volume and nucleotide dose is not used in studies. Therefore, the aim of this study is to investigate the effect of solution volume on the detection rate of a salivagram in patients with brain lesion, and to determine the optimal solution volume of salivagram. We retrospectively reviewed clinical data and solution volume of radionuclide used in the salivagram of 77 patients with dysphagia, and the patients were divided into 2 groups according to the solution volume of the radionuclide (Group A-0.1 mL vs Group B-0.5 mL). Although, there was no significant difference between 2 groups in clinical data, there was a statistically significant difference in the detection rate of salivary aspiration between the 2 groups (3.3% vs 19.1%). Even a small difference of the solution volume of radionuclide in salivagram can affect the detection rate of salivary aspiration in patients with brain lesion. Further study with various solution volumes of radionuclide is warranted to determine the optimal solution volume of the radionuclide salivagram.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A gamma-emitting radionuclide imaging agent used primarily in skeletal scintigraphy. Because of its absorption by a variety of tumors, it is useful for the detection of neoplasms.

Hypertonic sodium chloride solution. A solution having an osmotic pressure greater than that of physiologic salt solution (0.9 g NaCl in 100 ml purified water).

The volume of BLOOD passing through the HEART per unit of time. It is usually expressed as liters (volume) per minute so as not to be confused with STROKE VOLUME (volume per beat).

A type of lung inflammation resulting from the aspiration of food, liquid, or gastric contents into the upper RESPIRATORY TRACT.

Methods used to measure the relative activity of a specific enzyme or its concentration in solution. Typically an enzyme substrate is added to a buffer solution containing enzyme and the rate of conversion of substrate to product is measured under controlled conditions. Many classical enzymatic assay methods involve the use of synthetic colorimetric substrates and measuring the reaction rates using a spectrophotometer.
