Thyroid cancer : a comprehensive guide to clinical management by L Wartofsky( )

35 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in English and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book will help the reader to understand fully the role of nuclear medicine in managing thyroid cancer patient; follow the latest evidence-based recommendations and guidelines wherever possible; assess the promising uses of recombinant human thyrotropin; refer patients to Phase 1-3 clinical trials; and discover new isotopic imaging techniques, such as PET and CT scanning
Selected atlases of cardiovascular nuclear medicine by Douglas Van Nostrand( )

9 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and German and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each volume in the Atlases of Clinical Nuclear Medicine covers one anatomic region or system. Extensively illustrated with superb quality images, each atlas reveals the spectrum of normal scintigraphic findings as well as examples of both common and unusual conditions. Detailed figure legends describe the findings within each image, and most discuss the image's important teaching point. The text, which is descriptive yet concise, covers such topics as procedure technique, dosimetry, physiology, and scan interpretation. The Atlases of Clinical Nuclear Medicine fulfill equally the needs of practicing radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and residents seeking to utilize this helpful diagnostic modality more effectively. Selected Atlases of Cardiovascular Nuclear Medicine is comprised of five individual atlases in the areas of Myocardial Perfusion Images, Artifacts in 201 Thallium Spect Cardiac Perfusion Imaging, Artifacts in 99m Technetium Sestamibi SPECT Cardiac Perfusion Imaging, Cardiac Positron Emission Tomography, and Indium-111 Antimyosin Imaging of Myocardial Necrosis
Selected atlases of gastrointestinal scintigraphy by Harvey A Ziessman( )

7 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Selected Atlases of Gastrointestinal Scintigraphy is com- prised of five individual atlases in the reas of cholescintigraphy; gastrointestinal bleeding (RBC) scintigraphy; TC-99M labeled red blood cell liver scintigraphy; hepatic arterial perfusion scintigraphy and peritoneoscintigraphy

Thyroid Cancer : a Comprehensive Guide to Clinical Management by L Wartofsky( )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This massive revision of the highly acclaimed first edition presents a wealth of new information and insights on every aspect of the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, initial treatment, and long-term management of all varieties of thyroid cancer. Paramount is a thorough treatment of the nuclear medical aspects of diagnosing and managing the thyroid cancer patient. This includes extensive discussion of isotopes, isotope uptake and scanning procedures, radioisodine ablation and dosimetry (with or without recombinant human TSH), stunning, octreotide and FDG-PET scanning, and various alternative imaging modalities. Additional highlights include management of the scan negative and thyroglobulin-positive patient, ultrasound of the lymph nodes, local adjuncts to therapy of metastases, low iodine diets and cookbooks, future directions in therapy, and alternative therapies when traditional surgery and radioactive iodine fail

Radioiodine refractory differentiated thyroid cancer( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Highlights: The definition and pathogenesis about RR-DTC are updated in detail. Novel diagnostic modalities are helpful for identifying 131 I-nonavid thyroid cancer lesions. Local treatments and watchful waiting under TSH suppression should be considered initially and routinely for RR-DTC. Targeted, redifferentiation, immune and gene therapy have emerged as novel therapeutic approaches for RR-DTC. Future researches are necessary to optimize therapeutic strategies via better characterization of RR-DTC. Abstract: Differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) is usually curable with surgery, radioactive iodine (RAI), and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) suppression. However, local recurrence and/or distant metastases occur in approximately 15% of cases during follow-up, and nearly two-thirds of these patients will become RAI-refractory (RR-DTC) with a poor prognosis. This review focuses on the most challenging and rapidly evolving aspects of RR-DTC, and we discuss the considerable improvement in more accurately defining RR-DTC, more effective therapeutic strategies, and describe the diagnosis, pathogenesis, and future prospects of RR-DTC. Along with the detection of serum thyroglobulin and anatomic imaging modalities, such as ultrasound and computer tomography, radionuclide molecular imaging plays a vital role in the evaluation of RR-DTC. In addition, continual progress has been made in the management of RR-DTC, including watchful waiting under appropriate TSH suppression, local treatment approaches, and systemic therapies (molecular targeted therapy, redifferentiation therapy, gene therapy, and cancer immunotherapy). These all hold promise to change the natural history of RR-DTC
