We observed a layer between tumour activity and background on FDG PET/CT with the 10-step colour scale and the window level set properly. We named the layer peritumoral halo layer (PHL). We performed this study to establish the reliability of metabolic tumor volume (MTV) segmentation using PHL (MTVPHL) in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma.

The existing most common semi-quantitative systems used for neuroblastoma diagnosis include Curie and SIOPEN scores, which are based on 123I-MIBG planar scans. The purpose of our study was to find out whether a statistically significant difference exists in evaluation based on planar and SPECT/CT scans. We also compared the Curie and SIOPEN methods in terms of their use in regular practice. Patients; method: 45 patients aged 0-10 years; 213 assessments were done in total, and the Curie and SIOPEN scores were determined in each case based on planar and SPECT/CT scans. Student’s T-test and the Bland-Altman plot were used for the statistical analysis.

 To evaluate the clinical therapeutic response of PSMA targeted radioligand therapy with 177Lu-PSMA-617 in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. The current study analyzed disease-related quality of life (QoL) in patients undergoing PSMA therapy with a special focus on the association with simultaneous PSA response.

 In somatostatin receptor (SSTR) expressing progressive meningioma, peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) has shown effect in small clinical series. However, standardized treatment and response assessment protocols are lacking. We present our experience on PPRT with 177Lu-DOTATATE in progressive meningioma with a special emphasis on state-of-the-art response assessment.

 Patients with advanced prostate cancer are suitable candidates for [177Lu]PSMA-617 therapy. Integrated SPECT/CT systems have the potential to improve the accuracy of patient-specific tumor dosimetry. We present a novel patient-specific Monte Carlo based voxel-wise dosimetry approach to determine organ and total tumor doses (TTD).

 The objective of this study was to assess the impact of implementing FDG-PET imaging in treatment algorithms for differentiated thyroid cancer with suspected recurrence. Primary end points were overall, event-free and disease-specific survival. Secondary end points were therapies, disease control and the sensitivity and specificity of PET imaging.

Since the clinical introduction of PET/CT in the year of 2001 and PET/MRI in the year of 2010, hybrid imaging-guided precision medicine has become an important component of diagnostic algorithms in oncology. The written report represents the primary mode of communication between the referring physician and both the nuclear medicine physician and the radiologist. Reports have considerable impact on patient management and patient outcome, and serve as a legal documentation of the services provided and the expert impression of the interpreting physician. A high-quality hybrid imaging study should result in a likewise high-quality, structured written report which satisfactorily answers the clinical question of the referring physician. In this manuscript, consensus recommendations for structure and content of oncologic hybrid imaging reports and conclusive impressions are provided. Moreover, exemplary structured reports are provided. The recommendations for structured reporting provided in this document should foster further standardization and harmonization of oncologic reports in the context of hybrid imaging. They should also simplify communication with referring physicians and support both acceptance and appreciation of the clinical value of oncologic hybrid imaging.
