The objective of this trial is to assess the value of 18F-choline PET/CT for the detection of regional lymph node metastases from prostate cancer. In addition, the investigators want to ev...
To assess the efficiency of 18F-fluorocholine PET/CT in localization of hyperfunctioning parathyroid tissue in hyperparathyroidism, thereby enabling minimally invasive surgical approaches ...
This research protocol makes pictures of brain tumors. The pictures are made with a positron emission tomography (PET) scanner. PET scans use radioactivity to "see" cancer cells. We are us...
This is a pilot study (a small scale study testing procedures so that the investigators can apply this to a larger scale study). This study will test the accuracy of a new brain scan (Magn...
Background: - A small brain protein called the metabotropic glutamate receptor subtype 5 (mGluR5) may affect several brain diseases such as autism and depression. Researchers will use 2 ...
A 76-year-old man with metastatic prostate cancer and back pain was referred for palliative radiotherapy. Staging F-fluorocholine PET/CT scan revealed fluorocholine-avid prostate mass, extensive lymph...
An 80-year-old woman was evaluated with F-fluorocholine PET/CT in suspicion of a parathyroid adenoma. No focal parathyroid tracer uptake suggestive of adenoma was found, and instead a unilateral multi...
Computed tomography (CT) scan of the brain transitioned clinical neurology from the educated-guess world to the real computer-age world. One of the first CT scans-published by the British neuroradiolo...

We present the case of a severe familial primary hyperparathyroidism related to a germline deletion in the HRPT2 (CDC73) gene. Morphological explorations revealed 2 potential hyperfunctioning parathyr...
The use of combination of imaging techniques or platforms (e.g., MRI SCAN and PET SCAN) encompassing aspects of anatomical, functional, or molecular imaging methods.
A method of differentiating individuals based on the analysis of qualitative or quantitative biological traits or patterns. This process which has applications in forensics and identity theft prevention includes DNA profiles or DNA fingerprints, hand fingerprints, automated facial recognition, iris scan, hand geometry, retinal scan, vascular patterns, automated voice pattern recognition, and ultrasound of fingers.
A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions.

A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
Tissue NECROSIS in any area of the brain, including the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES, the CEREBELLUM, and the BRAIN STEM. Brain infarction is the result of a cascade of events initiated by inadequate blood flow through the brain that is followed by HYPOXIA and HYPOGLYCEMIA in brain tissue. Damage may be temporary, permanent, selective or pan-necrosis.
