Topics considered include cardiovascular system, first-pass angiography (non-quantitative) of the heart and great vessels, blood pool and quantitative first-pass studies, pericardial imaging, 99m/Tc-pyrophosphate imaging, /Tl-thallium myocardial perfusion imaging, intracoronary particle injection, radionuclide The book covers the entire human body and employs all the imaging modalities used in clinical practice; x-ray, CT, MR, PET, ultrasound and scintigraphy. An introductory chapter explains succinctly the essentials of the imaging and examination techniques drawing on the latest technical ://

Waldbaur, W. Walter, F. Wolf, W. Schiefer Pages Of numerous methods used in human medicine for the diagnosis of cerebral diseases, echo-encephalography, gamma-encephalography and scintigraphy have not yet been applied in veterinary medicine.

Scintigraphy is based on the principle that certain organic compounds have a greater affinity for cerebral lesions than for normal brain tissue; when such a compound is labelled with a radioactive This is a PDF-only article.

The first page of the PDF of this article appears :// The scintigraphy of the dopamine transport density (DaTSCAN) is a nuclear medical examination in which the functionality of certain structures in the brain, so-called dopamine transporter, is examined.

A low-radiation marker substance is administered and its distribution in the brain can then be tracked with a gamma camera and displayed as an image (scintigram).

Lewis Jon Umlauf 2-D (Planar Brain Scans) Before the advent of CT, the planar nuclear medicine brain scan, using radiopharmaceuticals such as Technetiummetastable (Tcm) diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (DTPA) or Tcm-glucoheptonate (GH), was used to detect a breakdown in the blood–brain barrier (BBB).

In most cases, brain scintigraphy is performed within a few hours after the receiving of a radioactive drug.

In a group of patients in whom brain scintigraphy with 99m Tc-pertechnetate was performed, there were 25 patients with cerebral infarction or an intracerebral hematoma due to diffuse vascular disease.

III. INDICATIONS Cerebral scintigraphy for brain death may be used to confirm the presence or absence of cerebral blood flow in the following situations: 1.

As part of a standardized institutional protocol for establishing brain death. Scintigraphy by MIBI and Tetrofosmin, successfully used as imaging agents in oncology (i.e.

breast and lung cancer), was also applied in diagnosis and follow-up of brain tumors. These two radiotracers are synthetic lipophilic cationic complexes and their uptake and retention depend on perfusion and cellular metabolism so that the level of
