Acute ischemic stroke is one of the most causes of death all over the world. Onset to treatment time is critical in stroke diagnosis and treatment. Considering the time consumption and high price of M...
The use of single photon emission computer tomography (SPECT/CT) in acute vascular injury is not well documented. SPECT/CT combines the anatomic detail of computer tomography with the functional vascu...
Patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and dementia experience reduced quality of life and increased mortality. Technetium 99m ECD brain perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (Tc-ECD br...
The aim of this study was to compare patient doses from ventilation perfusion single photon emission computed tomography (V/Q SPECT) and computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) performed on c...
Dedicated cadmium-zinc-telluride cardiac cameras have been shown to provide accurate measurements of absolute myocardial blood flow and flow reserve when PET is not available. We report the case of a ...
This study aims at evaluating the feasibility of CT myocardial perfusion imaging in daily clinical practice and compare it to SPECT perfusion imaging in order to assess sensitivity and spe...
This study enrolled participants with documented exercise-induced myocardial ischemia in order to evaluate whether ranolazine, when taken prior to exercise, can improve blood flow to the h...
The aim of this clinical study is to assess the prognostic value of radiotracer-based perfusion imaging for predicting clinical outcomes in diabetic patients with critical limb ischemia wh...
The purpose of this study is to compare pharmacologic stress myocardial perfusion PET with pharmacologic stress myocardial perfusion SPECT in a near-simultaneous, head-to-head comparison i...
This pilot clinical trial studies computed tomography (CT) perfusion imaging in predicting treatment response in patients with non-small cell lung cancer or tumors that have spread from th...
Devices or objects in various imaging techniques used to visualize or enhance visualization by simulating conditions encountered in the procedure. Phantoms are used very often in procedures employing or measuring x-irradiation or radioactive material to evaluate performance. Phantoms often have properties similar to human tissue. Water demonstrates absorbing properties similar to normal tissue, hence water-filled phantoms are used to map radiation levels. Phantoms are used also as teaching aids to simulate real conditions with x-ray or ultrasonic machines. (From Iturralde, Dictionary and Handbook of Nuclear Medicine and Clinical Imaging, 1990)
The ability of some cells or tissues to withstand ionizing radiation without serious injury. Tolerance depends on the species, cell type, and physical and chemical variables, including RADIATION-PROTECTIVE AGENTS and RADIATION-SENSITIZING AGENTS.
The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
The use of pre-treatment imaging modalities to position the patient, delineate the target, and align the beam of radiation to achieve optimal accuracy and reduce radiation damage to surrounding non-target tissues.
The creation and display of functional images showing where the blood flow reaches by following the distribution of tracers injected into the blood stream.

Lung cancer is the uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. Originating in the lungs, this growth may invade adjacent tissues and infiltrate beyond the lungs. Lung cancer, the most common cause of cancer-related death in men and women, is respons...
GILOTRIF (afatinib) is a kinase inhibitor indicated for the first-line treatment of patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose tumors have epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) exon 19 deletions or exon 21 (L8...
