I123 WBS (Thyroxine (T4) Withdrawal Method)

By |2018-05-16T10:50:22+03:00July 25th, 2014|Endocrine system, Nuclear Medicine|

Before I123 WBS (Thyroxine (T4) Withdrawal Method) measurement of serum TSH-stimulated thyroglobulin (Tg) is a sensitive method for detecting residual/recurrent well-differentiated thyroid carcinoma (WDTC) in patients previously treated by surgery and radioactive iodine (RAI) ablation therapy. WDTC patients who have an undetectable serum Tg on thyroid hormone therapy (THT) in the absence of [...]

I123 WBS (Thyrotropin-Alfa Stimulated Method)

By |2018-05-16T10:35:10+03:00June 15th, 2014|Endocrine system, Nuclear Medicine|

A Thyrotropin-Alfa stimulated total body scan with Iodine-123 is a nuclear medicine procedure used in patients with a history of thyroid cancer. Usually, patients have had their thyroid gland removed and are undergoing a routine check up to make sure the cancer has not returned. Thyrogen is like the body's naturally produced [...]

I131/I123 Metaiodobenzylguanidine (mIBG) Scintigraphy

By |2018-05-16T11:07:01+03:00May 16th, 2014|Endocrine system, Nuclear Medicine|

I131/I123 Metaiodobenzylguanidine (mIBG) Scintigraphy help locate and diagnose certain types of tumors in the body. MIBG is a substance that gathers in some tumors, particularly neuroblastoma tumors. When MIBG is combined with radioactive iodine (tracer), it provides a way to identify primary and metastatic (spread) disease. MIBG scans are helpful for locating [...]

Octreotide Scintigraphy

By |2018-05-16T13:22:38+03:00May 16th, 2014|Endocrine system, Nuclear Medicine|

An octreotide scan or octreoscan is a type of scintigraphy used to find carcinoid and other types of tumors and to localize sarcoidosis. Tc-HYNIC-TOC (Tektrotyd) is injected into a vein and travels through the bloodstream. The radioactive octreotide attaches to tumor cells that have receptors for somatostatin. English: Octreotide Scintigraphy [...]

Dual Phase Parathyroid Scan

By |2018-03-15T11:18:14+03:00May 16th, 2014|Endocrine system, Nuclear Medicine|

Dual Phase Parathyroid Scan is a procedure in nuclear medicine which is performed to localize parathyroid adenoma. Adequate localization of parathyroid adenoma allows the surgeon to use a minimally invasive surgical approach. English: Dual Phase Parathyroid Scan Instructions Arabic: Dual Phase Parathyroid Scan Instructions [...]

Thyroid Scintigraphy (Tc99m / I123 / I131)

By |2018-05-16T13:09:45+03:00May 10th, 2014|Endocrine system|

Thyroid Scintigraphy (Tc99m / I123 / I131) procedure in nuclear medicine to detect metastases/function of thyroid, the isotopes iodine-131, iodine-123 or technetium-99m is generally used, and for this purpose the iodide isotopes does not need to be attached to another protein or molecule, because thyroid tissue takes up free iodide actively. [...]

I131 WBS (Thyroxine (T4) Withdrawal Method)

By |2018-05-16T10:41:48+03:00September 21st, 2013|Endocrine system, Nuclear Medicine|

Before I131 WBS (Thyroxine (T4) Withdrawal Method) measurement of serum TSH-stimulated thyroglobulin (Tg) is recognized as a sensitive method for detecting residual/recurrent well-differentiated thyroid carcinoma (WDTC) in patients previously treated by surgery and radioactive iodine (RAI) ablation therapy. WDTC patients who have an undetectable serum Tg on thyroid hormone therapy (THT) in the [...]

By |2018-05-16T10:30:23+03:00September 21st, 2013|Endocrine system, Nuclear Medicine|

A Thyrogen stimulated total body scan with Iodine- 131 is a nuclear medicine procedure used in patients with a history of thyroid cancer.
