68Ga-PSMA Uptake in Angiolipoma.

Ga-PSMA PET/CT is an imaging technique used in staging and detection of prostate cancer. However, enhanced uptake on Ga-PSMA PET/CT scan has also been ascribed to other malignant and benign lesions. We report on a case of a 56-year-old man with treated prostate carcinoma who had a Ga-PSMA PET/CT scan for restaging. Ga-PSMA uptakes in the prostatic bed and in multiple subcutaneous lesions were seen. Histopathology of a subcutaneous lesion revealed angiolipoma. It is important to be aware of the existence of ...

What is the best timing of repeated CT scan in mild head trauma with an initial positive CT scan?

Mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) is among the most common causes of A&E admission. Current Guidelines have clearly evidenced risk factors and neurological signs that should suggest a head CT scan at admission and indications to the first repeated scan. However, the role and frequency of further repeated CT scans after an initial positive scan is still unclear.

Assessment of the Diagnostic Accuracy of Biparametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Prostate Cancer in Biopsy-Naive Men: The Biparametric MRI for Detection of Prostate Cancer (BIDOC) Study.

Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) enhances detection and risk stratification for significant prostate cancer but is time-consuming (approximately 40 minutes) and expensive. Rapid and simpler (approximately 15-minute) biparametric MRI (bpMRI) using fewer scan sequences could be implemented as a prostate MRI triage test on a larger scale before performing biopsies.

68Ga-PSMA Uptake in Anal Fistula on PET/CT Scan.

Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET/CT scan for primary staging discovered increased Ga-PSMA uptake in a known anal fistula in a recently diagnosed high-risk prostate cancer patient. The patient had an ongoing history of surgical revisions of complex fistulas in the perianal region, contributing to active inflammation and infection. Recently, reports have demonstrated increased Ga-PSMA uptake in different benign inflammatory conditions. This case demonstrates another case of a benign condition ...

CT scan and magnetic resonance diffusion-weighted imaging in the diagnosis and treatment of esophageal cancer.

Value of computed tomography (CT) scan and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) in the diagnosis and treatment of esophageal cancer was investigated. Seventy-eight patients with esophageal cancer treated in Jinan Central Hospital (Jinan, China) from January 2013 to June 2014 were selected. All patients underwent CT scan and DWI examination, and their clinical history data were analyzed. DWI was conducted. The short-term curative effect and the 3-year survival rate of patients in the high apparent diffusion coef...

Feasible scan timing for 320-row coronary CT angiography generated by the time to peak in the ascending aorta.

A 320-row CT scanner can briefly scan the entire heart. Therefore, the feasible scan timing is required. The aim of this study was to propose a refined method for feasible scan timing for coronary CT angiography (CCTA) using a time-density curve of the ascending aorta (AAo).

To Scan or Not to Scan: Horses and Zebras.

Subtle excess in lifetime cancer risk related to CT scanning in Spanish young people.

CT scan is a life-saving medical diagnostic tool, entailing higher levels of ionising radiation exposure than conventional radiography, which may result in an increase in cancer risk, particularly in children. Information about the use and potential health effects of CT scan imaging among young people in Spain is scarce.

18F-DCFPyL PET/CT in Oncocytoma.

A 76-year-old man with biochemical failure after primary radiotherapy for prostate cancer had no malignant disease detected on Tc-MDP bone scan and diagnostic CT. Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), a type II transmembrane glycoprotein, is overexpressed in prostate cancer cells. The PSMA-targeted F-DCFPyL PET/CT demonstrated lymph node disease and photopenic defects in the left kidney associated with a cyst and biopsy-proven oncocytoma. Prostate-specific membrane antigen is expressed in the neovascul...

Addressing Survivorship in Cancer Care.

As a disease, cancer can affect an individual's well-being, from physical to psychological, social, and even spiritual wellness. The cancer survivor population must navigate a complex, constantly evolving field, with the assistance of their care team, to conquer the disease. To address the unmet needs of the cancer survivorship community, NCCN conducted an environmental scan of existing and emerging aspects of survivorship cancer care through stakeholder meetings with survivors and patient advocacy groups t...

Whole body bone SPET/CT can successfully replace the conventional bone scan in breast cancer patients. A prospective study of 257 patients.

Single photon emission tomography/computed tomography (SPET/CT) is usually recommended after ambiguous whole body bone scan (WBS) findings. We investigated the value of routine 2-field ("near" whole-body) SPET/CT application in breast cancer (BC) patients.

Benign Esophageal Findings on 68Ga-Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen PET/CT Scan.

In 2 high-risk prostate cancer patients, PET scans revealed focally increased Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen uptake in the distal esophagus. Both patients had hiatus herniation on gastroscopy, and esophageal biopsies revealed acute and chronic inflammation in both patients and a benign hyperplastic polyp in one of the patients. Recently, reports have demonstrated that inflammation can cause false-positive findings on Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen PET/CT, and these cases present this phenomeno...

Schmorl's Node: Confusion Still Persists in 68Ga-Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen Ligand PET/CT.

Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) ligand PET/CT is commonly believed to be prostate specific as the name itself suggests. However, PSMA-expressing nonprostatic cancers as well as benign lesions are continuously being added to the list. We reported PSMA-expressing Schmorl's node in L1 vertebra of a 74-year-old man with prostate cancer. Prostate-specific membrane antigen expression in the vertebral lesion raised a metastatic suspicion. However, on analysis of previous CT scan done 2 years before, t...

Mediastinal Duplication Cyst on 99mTc Pertechnetate Scan.

A 3-year-old boy presented with intermittent abdominal pain, melena, and anemia since 2 months. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy did not reveal any significant abnormality. The child was then referred for Tc-pertechnetate scan to rule out the presence of ectopic functioning gastric mucosa. Tc-pertechnetate scan revealed abnormal tracer accumulation in the thoracic region, which persisted in the delayed images, suspicious for being ectopic gastric mucosa. Subsequently, ultrasound and contrast-enhanced CT (CE...

More accurate than MRI measurement of tumor size in breast cancer by using the peri-tumoral halo uptake layer method of the F-FDG PET/CT scan.

To evaluate the reliability of a method using the peri-tumoral halo layer (PHL) for assessing tumor size in breast cancer patients on the fluorine-18-fluorodeoxy glucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (F-FDG PET/CT) scan compared to MRI and pathology.

Gemstone spectral imaging in lung cancer: A preliminary study.

The present study aimed to evaluate the application of gemstone spectral imaging (GSI) for multi-parameter quantitative measurement in lung cancer.The study retrospectively enrolled 30 patients with lung cancer who underwent chest contrast enhanced CT scan with GSI mode. The GSI viewer was used for image display and data analysis.

Rapid Assessment of the Neonate With Sonography (RANS) Scan.

The use of point-of-care sonography in clinical settings such as emergency medicine and intensive care units has increased, but adoption in neonatology has been slow. Unlike the focused assessment with sonography for trauma scan used in adults, a quick bedside scan to rapidly evaluate an acutely deteriorating neonate does not exist. The objective of our article is to introduce a focused bedside ultrasound scan that is easy to learn, rapidly performed, and relatively inexpensive.© 2018 by the American Insti...

Impact of long-term androgen deprivation therapy on PSMA ligand PET/CT in patients with castration-sensitive prostate cancer.

Since the introduction of PSMA PET/CT with Ga-PSMA-11, this modality for imaging prostate cancer (PC) has spread worldwide. Preclinical studies have demonstrated that short-term androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) can significantly increase PSMA expression on PC cells. Additionally, retrospective clinical data in large patient cohorts suggest a positive association between ongoing ADT and a pathological PSMA PET/CT scan. The present evaluation was conducted to further analyse the influence of long-term ADT o...

The Role of Testosterone Therapy in the Setting of Prostate Cancer.

The role of testosterone in the development of prostate cancer and the safety of testosterone therapy (TTh) after prostate cancer treatment, or in the setting of active surveillance, remains controversial. There are many concerns about using TTh in men, particularly those with a history of prostate cancer, ranging from a possible increased risk of cardiovascular disease to cancer progression or recurrence. With many prostate cancer patients living longer, and hypogonadism having significant morbidity, much ...

68Ga-Labeled Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen Uptake in Pheochromocytoma: An Incidental Finding in PET/CT Scan.

We report a case of adenocarcinoma prostate treated previously with radical prostatectomy and hormonal therapy who underwent Ga-labeled prostate-specific membrane antigen PET/CT for recurrence evaluation. In addition to radiotracer uptake in the prostate bed, unusual intense prostate-specific membrane antigen uptake was also noted in the left adrenal gland. With a clinical suspicion of pheochromocytoma, Ga-DOTANOC PET/CT was done, which revealed tracer-avid left adrenal lesion.

Vitamin K intake and prostate cancer risk in the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal, and Ovarian Cancer (PLCO) Screening Trial.

Vitamin K inhibits prostate cancer cells, and an altered expression of vitamin K-dependent proteins in prostate tumors has been linked to their aggressiveness and progression. However, little is known about the effect of vitamin K intake on prostate cancer in human populations.

Association of zinc level and polymorphism in MMP-7 gene with prostate cancer in Polish population.

Prostate cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed malignancies among men in Western populations. Evidence reported in the literature suggests that zinc may be related to prostate cancer. In this study we evaluated the association of serum zinc levels and polymorphisms in genes encoding zinc-dependent proteins with prostate cancer in Poland.

The goal of this series is to help readers better understand how to apply the results of key studies, including those published in Journal of Clinical Oncology, to patients seen in their own clinical pra...

A paradigm shift for prostate cancer diagnostics.

The current praxis of diagnosing prostate cancer, with systematic prostate biopsies in men with raised serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels, leads to considerable over-diagnosis and over-treatment of indolent cancer. Recent research has opened up for a paradigm shift to risk stratified, sequential and targeted prostate cancer diagnostics, which will reduce over-diagnosis. Sweden now moves towards organised PSA testing for those men who, after proper counselling, wish to be tested. Organised PSA test...

Usefulness of iodine-123 whole-body scan in planning iodine-131 treatment of the differentiated thyroid carcinoma in children and adolescence.

Radioiodine treatment (RAI-T) of differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) is important to avoid disease progression, in particular in pediatric patients. For these reasons, a diagnostic scan may be useful to assess therapeutic tailored activity. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the usefulness of diagnostic whole-body scan (WBS) with iodine-123 (I) in combination with recombinant human thyroid-stimulating hormone (rh-TSH; Thyrogen) (rh-TSH-Dx-WBS), in planning RAI-T or further surgery before RAI-T in p...
