SPECT/CT in the Diagnosis of Dementia

Aim of the study is to evaluate whether Tc-99m-ECD-SPECT/CT enhances early diagnosis of dementia in two specific patient groups: (1) patient with mild cognitive impairment, and (2) patient...

Dopamine Transporter Scintigraphy Imaging (DAT-Imaging) in Patients With Lewy Body Dementia

The study is designed to determine the diagnostic efficacy of the visual assessment of SPECT scans in differentiating between probable dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) and non-DLB dementia ...

Diagnostic of Lewy Body Dementia by Combining Scintigraphy (SPECT) Using a Specific Transporter and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

The aim of this study is to improve the diagnostic of Lewy body dementia by combining the scintigraphy (SPECT) usig a spécific transporter and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

DaTSCAN Imaging in Aging and Neurodegenerative Disease

The investigators propose using DaTscan in patients with REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD), mild cognitive impairment (MCI), Parkinson's disease (PD), dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), Alzh...

An Evaluation of the Safety of Escalating Doses of Tc 99m Tilmanocept by Intravenous (IV) Injection and Skeletal Joint Imaging With SPECT in Subjects With Active Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Healthy Controls

Prospective, open-label, multicenter, dose escalation, safety study of injected Tc 99m tilmanocept in the detection of and assessment of localization to skeletal joints in subjects with an...

SPECT/CT MIBG Imaging Is Crucial in the Follow-up of the Patients With High-Risk Neuroblastoma.

Planar whole-body imaging with I-radiolabeled metaiodobenzylguanidine (I-MIBG) is routinely used in the follow-up evaluation of neuroblastoma. In recent years, SPECT with integrated low-dose CT (SPECT...

Myocardial Perfusion SPECT and Cardiac MR Correlative Imaging.

An institutional review board-approved retrospective review of 55 patients who received cardiac MRI within 1 year of myocardial SPECT was performed. Forty-nine demonstrated myocardial infarction by MR...

Dual-radiotracer translational SPECT neuroimaging. Comparison of three methods for the simultaneous brain imaging of D and 5-HT receptors.

SPECT imaging with two radiotracers at the same time is feasible if two different radioisotopes are employed, given their distinct energy emission spectra. In the case of I and I, dual SPECT imaging i...

Diagnostic performance of hybrid cardiac SPECT/CT imaging for patients with takotsubo cardiomyopathy.

The diagnostic performance of SPECT-only imaging for takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) is limited due to the lack of coronary artery distribution information. The aim of this study was to evaluate the dia...

The role of hybrid bone SPECT/CT imaging in the work-up of the limping patient: a symptom-based and joint-oriented review.

A vast spectrum of lower limb bone and joint disorders (hip, knee, ankle, foot) present with a common clinical presentation: limping. Too often this symptom generates an inefficient cascade of imaging...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A method of computed tomography that uses radionuclides which emit a single photon of a given energy. The camera is rotated 180 or 360 degrees around the patient to capture images at multiple positions along the arc. The computer is then used to reconstruct the transaxial, sagittal, and coronal images from the 3-dimensional distribution of radionuclides in the organ. The advantages of SPECT are that it can be used to observe biochemical and physiological processes as well as size and volume of the organ. The disadvantage is that, unlike positron-emission tomography where the positron-electron annihilation results in the emission of 2 photons at 180 degrees from each other, SPECT requires physical collimation to line up the photons, which results in the loss of many available photons and hence degrades the image.

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 technetium imaging agent used in renal scintigraphy, computed tomography, lung ventilation imaging, gastrointestinal scintigraphy, and many other procedures which employ radionuclide imaging agents.

Optical imaging techniques used for recording patterns of electrical activity in tissues by monitoring transmembrane potentials via FLUORESCENCE imaging with voltage-sensitive fluorescent dyes.
