Diagnosis of Cardiac Amyloidosis With 99mTc-PYP; Comparison Between Planar Imaging, SPECT/CT and Cardiac-dedicated CZT Camera

2019-11-04 15:46:46 | BioPortfolio


1. Patients will undergo clinical and laboratory assessment, as well as imaging tests, at the discretion of the attending cardiologist and will be referred at their discretion to perform cardiac mapping using 99mTc-PYP.

2. On the day of the examination, the examiner will be admitted to the Office of Nuclear Medicine and will be admitted to administrative. Before conducting the test, the subject will undergo a brief interview by a physician, receive an explanation of the study and, if agreed, sign an agreement to perform a further examination on the CZT camera.

3. The patient will, as is customary, be installed on Vanflon 22 G periphery, through which a 15 millikiric (mCi) of

The Potential Role of 18F-NaF PET/CT in Diagnosing Cardiac Amyloidosis

Cardiac amyloidosis is a common cause of refractory cardiomyopathy and heart failure in an adult population. There are several types of cardiac amyloidosis, but two are the most common (1)...

Effect of Low Dose Radiotherapy on ATTR Cardiac Amyloidosis : a Proof of Concept Study

Cardiac amyloidosis is responsible for significant morbidity associated with heart failure, and carries a poor prognosis. Currently there are very limited treatment options for this condit...

Physiologic Assessment of Microvascular Function in Patients With Cardiac Amyloidosis

The aim of the study is to evaluate coronary flow reserve (CFR), index of microcirculatory resistance (IMR), and proportion of overt microvascular disease, defined as depressed CFR as well...

Comparison of Cardiac Computed Tomographic Angiography (CTA) to Tc-99m Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT)

Cardiovascular disease and ischemic heart disease is the #1 killer in Canada. Currently, Cardiac invasive catheterization angiography (CICA) is the gold standard for the assessment of the ...

Single-scan Rest/Stress Imaging With Cadmium Zinc Telluride-based SPECT for Coronary Flow Quantification

The investigators aim to address this issue with novel image quantification methods using CZT-based SPECT, which is capable of dynamic data acquisition and therefore feasible for the quant...

ASNC/AHA/ASE/EANM/HFSA/ISA/SCMR/SNMMI expert consensus recommendations for multimodality imaging in cardiac amyloidosis: Part 2 of 2-Diagnostic criteria and appropriate utilization.

Cardiac amyloidosis is emerging as an underdiagnosed cause of heart failure and mortality. Growing literature suggests that a noninvasive diagnosis of cardiac amyloidosis is now feasible. However, the...

Adaptive Scan Duration in SPECT:Evaluation for Radioembolization.

It may be challenging to select the optimal scan duration for SPECT protocols because the activity distribution characteristics can differ in every scan. Using simulations and experiments, we investig...

A novel risk score to predict survival in advanced heart failure due to cardiac amyloidosis.

Cardiac amyloidosis, caused by deposition of immunoglobulin light chains (AL) or transthyretin (ATTR), carries a poor prognosis. Established risk scores for amyloidosis may not predict outcomes in tho...

Impact of Genetic Testing in Transthyretin (ATTR) Cardiac Amyloidosis.

The review's main focus centers on the genetics of hereditary cardiac amyloidosis, highlighting the opportunities and challenges posed by the widespread availability of genetic screening and diagnosti...

Quantification of myocardial Tc-labeled bisphosphonate uptake with cadmium zinc telluride camera in patients with transthyretin-related cardiac amyloidosis.

We aimed to compare different methods for semi-quantitative analysis of cardiac retention of bone tracers in patients with cardiac transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTR).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Diseases in which there is a familial pattern of AMYLOIDOSIS.

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.

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 form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease in which the ventricular walls are excessively rigid, impeding ventricular filling. It is marked by reduced diastolic volume of either or both ventricles but normal or nearly normal systolic function. It may be idiopathic or associated with other diseases (ENDOMYOCARDIAL FIBROSIS or AMYLOIDOSIS) causing interstitial fibrosis.
