Article
Purpose: We sought to investigate the performance of radiomics analysis on baseline 18F-FDG PET/CT for predicting response to first-line chemotherapy in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Material and methods: Forty-five patients who received first-line rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone (R-CHOP) chemotherap...
Article
Aim: To determine the impact of 18F-FDG PET/computed tomography (CT) on clinical staging in bladder cancer with comparison to conventional CT and MRI. Methods: A total of 142 patients who underwent 18F-FDG PET/CT imaging with a diagnosis of bladder cancer between 1 June 2019 and 31 December 2020 were screened retrospectively. Seventy patients wh...
Article
Objective: To develop a nomogram based on commonly used clinical data for predicting the likelihood of metastasis in gallium-68 prostate-specific membrane antigen PET/computed tomography (Ga-68 PSMA PET/CT) scans of prostate cancer patients with confirmed biochemical recurrence (BCR). Methods: One-hundred thirty-five (n = 135) patients who underwe...

The imaging protocol and the optimal cut-off points for quantitative assessment of technetium-99m pyrophosphate (Tc-99m PYP) cardiac amyloidosis scintigraphy remain controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the concordance between planar and SPECT images, and to investigate the contribution of SPECT/CT to diagnostic precision. All patien...
Article
Purpose: To investigate the predictors of contralateral hypertrophy in patients treated with unilobar transarterial radioembolization (TARE) with yttrium-90-loaded resin microspheres due to unresectable right-liver tumors. Methods: Patients who underwent right unilobar TARE with resin microspheres between May 2019 and September 2021 were screened...

Background Stereotactic body radioablation therapy (SBRT) has recently been introduced with the ability to provide ablative energy noninvasively to arrhythmogenic substrate while reducing damage to normal cardiac tissue nearby and minimizing patients’ procedural risk. There is still debate regarding whether SBRT has a predominant effect in the earl...
Article
Objective: To investigate the correlation between the standardized uptake value (SUV) metrics derived from technetium-99m (99mTc) methylene diphosphonate (MDP) single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) and fluorine-18 (18F) sodium fluoride (NaF) positron emission tomography (PET)/CT. Subjects and methods: A total...

Aim: To investigate the relationship between the textural features extracted from pre-treatment fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission with computed tomography (F-18 FDG PET/CT) and the response to treatment in patients undergoing transarterial radioembolization (TARE) due to primary or metastatic liver tumors. Material and Method: A tota...

Objectives: This study aimed to investigate the contributory role of histogram-based textural features (HBTFs) extracted from 18fluorinefluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) in tumoral heterogeneity (TH) evaluation and invasive lung adenocarcinoma (ILA) prognosis prediction. Methods: This retrospe...
Article
In patients with mechanical aortic and mitral valves and left ventricular (LV) tachycardia (VT), catheter ablation is technically challenging due to the limited access to the LV. Promising new alternatives to radiofrequency ablation include pulsed-field electroporation, percutaneous or surgical sympathetic neuromodulation, and noninvasive stereotac...
Article
Aim Gastric carcinoma is one of the most frequent cancers and leading causes of cancer-related death worldwide. Treatment strategies are planned according to the Tumour-Node-Metastasis (TNM) stage of the disease. However, the prognosis varies substantially even within the same stage. Prognostic nomograms were designed to overcome this diversity. In...
Article
Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between volumetric parameters calculated using semiautomatic quantification of lesions detected in 68Ga-labeled prostate-specific membrane antigen PET-computed tomography (68Ga-PSMA PET/CT) and clinical characteristics in prostate cancer (PCa) patients with biochemical recurrence....

Background Several countries have increasingly focused on improving care for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), heart failure (HF), and pneumonia to reduce their readmissions and mortality rates. Frailty is becoming increasingly important to accurately predict healthcare utilization for the aging population. The preferred method for the measurement...
Article
Objectıves This study investigates whether textural features (TFs) extracted from ¹⁸F-FDG positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) are associated with immunohistochemical characteristics (IHCs) of invasive ductal breast carcinoma (IDBC). Materials and methods The relationship of TFs with IHCs [estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone...
Article
In this study, we aimed to investigate the effects of chronic sleep deprivation on mucociliary clearance, which is the primary defence mechanism of the upper airway tract and nasal mucosal histology. Forty‐two Wistar Albino rats (250‐300 g), 8 or 12 weeks old, were randomly assigned into three groups as follows. The first sleep‐deprivation group co...
Article
Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of technetium- 99m-methoxyisobutylisonitrile (Tc-MIBI) single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) and ultrasound in preoperative localization of single parathyroid adenomas (PTAs) in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) who would be suitable fo...

Hypertrophic pulmonary osteoarthropathy (HPOA) is a paraneoplastic manifestation of gastric and, more frequently, lung carcinomas. It is characterized by extremity pain, clubbing, arthritis and periostitis of the long bones. Periostitis is the hallmark of HPOA and can be revealed with bone scintigraphy. Whole-body bone scintigraphy (WBBS) is very s...

Stress fractures are injuries most commonly seen in the lower limbs and are usually caused by repetitive stress. While the distal and middle third of the tibia is the most frequent site for stress fractures (almost 50%), stress fractures of the proximal tibia is relatively rare and could be confused with other types of tibial fractures, thus alteri...
