We describe the successful treatment of a patient with extended-aortic prosthetic graft infection (PGI) by surgery limited to the infected lesion based on F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (F-FDG-PET/CT) findings.

Bioprosthetic valve dysfunction was treated in the past with redo open heart surgery. The need to identify occult leaflet infection was not an important requirement as all valve tissue was removed dur...
The role of F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in the diagnosis and staging of patients with biliary tract cancer (BTCs) remains controversial.
Massive localized lymphedema is an aggressive type of lymphedema that causes great functional impairment for the patient, depriving from one's basic life activities. The treatment of this type of lesi...
The prognostic value of pretreatment F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography with computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) was assessed in patients with combined hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinoma (c...
The aim of this study was to identify the prognostic impact of metabolic parameters of F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron-emission tomography (PET) in patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (I...
18F-fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography (FDG-PET) Imaging has been extensively used in the evaluation of various malignancies and is rapidly being recognized as a mandatory inv...
As many as 70-85% subjects diagnosed with a follicular lesion on biopsy and undergoing surgery will have benign lesions verified by histopathology after surgery. Currently there is no met...
18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) is a promising tool for identifying and quantifying vascular inflammation within atherosclerotic plaques. Therefore, in this...
This is a single center imaging study that will recruit 30 participants who are enrolled in the Brain Energy And Memory study (BEAM) protocol. This cohort of patients, aged 50-85, will rec...
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has improved detection of clinically significant prostate cancer (PCa). MRI-guided transurethral ultrasound ablation (MRI-TULSA) system incorporates precis...
The compound is given by intravenous injection to do POSITRON-EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY for the assessment of cerebral and myocardial glucose metabolism in various physiological or pathological states including stroke and myocardial ischemia. It is also employed for the detection of malignant tumors including those of the brain, liver, and thyroid gland. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1162)
Lesion on the surface of the skin of the foot, usually accompanied by inflammation. The lesion may become infected or necrotic and is frequently associated with diabetes or leprosy.
An imaging technique using compounds labelled with short-lived positron-emitting radionuclides (such as carbon-11, nitrogen-13, oxygen-15 and fluorine-18) to measure cell metabolism. It has been useful in study of soft tissues such as CANCER; CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM; and brain. SINGLE-PHOTON EMISSION-COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY is closely related to positron emission tomography, but uses isotopes with longer half-lives and resolution is lower.
Those psychiatric disorders usually first diagnosed in infancy, childhood, or adolescence. These disorders can also be first diagnosed during other life stages.
An imaging technique that combines a POSITRON-EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY (PET) scanner and a CT X RAY scanner. This establishes a precise anatomic localization in the same session.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
