Pharmacology principles provide key understanding that underpins the clinical and research roles of nuclear medicine practitioners. The scope of practice of the nuclear medicine technologist demands knowledge and understanding of indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, proper use, drug interactions, and adverse reactions for each medication to be used. This article is the sixth in a series of articles that aims to enhance the understanding of pharmacological principles relevant to nuclear medicine...

Direct radionuclide cystography (DRC) is currently a popular method for evaluation of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), in spite of its pitfalls and drawbacks in producing false positive results. In this article, it is intended to present a case with two sources of false positive reflux on a DRC scan.

Background and Objective: Positron emission tomography (PET) acquisition and reconstruction is time consuming. A PET preview image is commonly reconstructed at the end of data acquisition of each bed frame in the step and shoot mode. We propose a scheme to reconstruct, stream, and visualize the PET preview image during acquisition to provide a quasi real-time visual feedback. Methods: As acquisition proceeds, event data is processed continuously by a back-projection method using time-of-flight kernels while only sensitivity, time-span, and decay corrections are applied...

99m Tc-red blood cells (RBCs) labeled multi-gated acquisition (MUGA) scan is a procedure in which the patient's red blood cells (RBCs) are radiolabeled and electrocardiograph (ECG)-gated cardiac scintigraphy is obtained to assess the heart's pumping efficiency. Cold agglutinin disease (CAD), or cold antibody autoimmune hemolytic anemia, is a rare form of autoimmune hemolytic anemia in which the body's immune system attacks and destroys its own red blood cells. This case addresses an altered biodistribution pattern of radiolabeled RBCs in the presence of suspected cold agglutinin disease observed during a MUGA scan...

Jared D Seliger
Nuclear medicine technologists (NMT) have multiple opportunities to advance their careers beyond an entry-level technologist. Many careers that NMTs can obtain require additional skills, education or qualifications. Participating in professional development (PD) opportunities is necessary to acquire the skills necessary for career advancement. Professional development opportunities can come from professional societies or organization, be sponsored by an institution or employer, or come from participating in an educational degree program or advanced certificate program...

Technetium-99m (99m Tc) tagged RBC scintigraphy is the imaging modality of choice in the diagnosis of active gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB). Continuous-flow left ventricular assist devices (CF-LVADs) are the state-of-the-art treatment for advanced heart failure, with GIB as the most common complication. Recognition of the distinctive imaging feature of CF-LVADs on scintigraphic images could aid diagnosis of GIB.

Dialysis is an artificial process to remove waste products and excess water from the body in patients with kidney failure. There are two main types of dialysis available, hemodialysis (HD) which uses an artificial filtration apparatus and is done usually at specialized centers but can be done in a patient's home and peritoneal dialysis (PD). Peritoneal dialysis functions by placing dialysis fluid also called dialysate into the peritoneal cavity allowing for solute to be removed from the peritoneal capillaries through diffusion across a chemical gradient into the dialysate and removal of water through an osmotic gradient created by hypertonic dextrose...

Rationale: Nuclear stress testing is being increasingly utilized in the cardiovascular risk stratification of patients. Radiation is an important consideration and attempts to minimize exposure should be implemented. Efficiency and cost effectiveness are cornerstones in the delivery of quality patient care and should also be considered when implementing change. Methods: We studied 88 consecutive patients who presented to our stress lab for pharmacologic nuclear stress testing. A single day rest and stress protocol with low level exercise was utilized for all patients...

Many factors can affect image quality regardless of what organ a Nuclear Medicine Technologist (NMT) is imaging. It is extremely important that every aspect of an image protocol be followed properly to ensure the highest image quality. If image protocols are not followed properly, image quality as well as a nuclear medicine physician's interpretation and final report, and conceivably a patient's care plan and management by their physician, could be negatively affected. It is important that NMTs understand the elements that can affect brain image quality and learn ways to overcome challenges they may face when acquiring any type of brain image, whether it is dopamine transporter (DaT) imaging, amyloid imaging or Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET brain imaging...

A 48-year-old man with history of colon cancer presented with recurrent hepatic metastasis along a prior microwave ablation (MWA) bed. Split-bolus, intraprocedural FDG PET was performed to guide repeat MWA and immediately confirm complete treatment. PET-guided ablation is highly accurate for targeting and treating malignant hepatic lesions and feasible for non-specialized tertiary care hospitals without an onsite cyclotron.

REVIEW
Jacquelyn E Brogley
Idiopathic Parkinson disease (PD) is a progressive neurologic condition that affects the dopamine transporters in the substantia nigra of the brain. Currently, more than 10 million people are living with this disease worldwide, with thousands of newly diagnosed and undiagnosed cases added every year. The disease is difficult to differentiate from other similar disorders, as symptoms widely vary and can mimic other conditions. Classic PD symptoms may look similar to essential tremor and other parkinsonian syndromes...
