307 Possible Causes for Positron Emission Tomography Abnormal

  • Metastatic Ovarian Carcinoma

    Carbopolatin plus gemcitabine was administered but was not effective. 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (PET) showed abnormal uptake in the multiple lung[jstage.jst.go.jp]

  • Insomnia

    emission tomography of the brain Hyperarousal In experimental models of insomnia, healthy subjects deprived of sleep do not demonstrate the same abnormalities in metabolism[emedicine.com] […] activity (a pattern observed during memory processing/performing tasks) at sleep onset Increased global glucose consumption during the transition from waking to sleep onset, on positron[emedicine.com]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Seventeen alcoholic patients and 16 control subjects underwent both structural magnetic resonance imaging and (18)F-2-fluoro-deoxy-glucose-positron emission tomography examinations[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Structural abnormalities and hypometabolism were examined in alcoholic patients compared with control subjects using two-sample t-tests.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] the relationship between grey matter shrinkage and hypometabolism, none has performed a direct voxel-by-voxel comparison between the degrees of structural and metabolic abnormalities[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    At 8 years, fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography showed largely frontal metabolic abnormality. Over his final 1(1/2) years, he was mute and withdrawn.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Brain MRI failed to disclose any structural abnormalities, but positron emission tomography (PET) performed 2 weeks later showed prominent hypometabolism in the parieto-occipital[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Positron emission tomography (PET) scan. PET scan images can help your doctor detect plaque buildup. Plaque is a protein substance related to Alzheimer’s symptoms.[healthline.com]

  • Delirium

    Positron emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) studies on patients with delirium from hepatic encephalopathy, cardiotomy, and traumatic[doi.org] Central cholinergic pathways overlap with locations of neuroimaging abnormalities in delirium brain studies.[doi.org] […] brain injury demonstrate abnormal perfusion in the same cortical, subcortical regions as cholinergic pathways.[doi.org]

  • Staphylococcus Aureus

    . 5 Positron emission tomography–computed tomography is used in the detection of implant-based osteomyelitis. 172 An echocardiogram is used to diagnose endocarditis in the[doi.org] […] infected implants, but the disadvantage of these techniques are interferences caused by the metals used in the implants, which restricts their applications to soft tissue abnormalities[doi.org]

  • Cardiac Arrhythmia

    Idiopathic ventricular tachycardia is not really idiopathic: structural ventricular abnormalities detected by positron emission tomography.[doi.org] […] diagnostic tools, including autonomic imaging by positron emission tomography, genetic testing, 58 and magnetic resonance imaging, many forms of “idiopathic” sudden cardiac[doi.org] Other imaging techniques, for example, those that evaluate sympathetic neural function, are often abnormal in these patients. 57 With the development and validation of new[doi.org]

  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

    Whole body positron emission tomography confirmed this to be a localized lymphoma involving the peripheral nerve.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This diagnosis was considered because of the clinical presentation and electrophysiologic abnormalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Ventriculography is highly reproducible. 300 Single photon emission computed tomography or positron emission tomography scans are not primarily used to determine LV systolic[doi.org] […] directly assess valvular structure, function, or ventricular wall thickness; it may be more useful for assessing LV volumes in patients with significant baseline wall motion abnormalities[doi.org]

  • Heart Failure
