    • A case for the provision of positron emission tomography (PET) in South African public hospitals 

      Sathekge, M. M.; Warwick, J.; Vangu, M. D. T.; Ellmann, A.; Mann, M. (Health and Medical Publishing Group, 2006-07)
      Nuclear medicine is expanding into new areas of clinical practice, of which positron emission tomography (PET) is an example. As in new treatments with labelled monoclonal antibodies, especially for lymphoma, the wide ...

    • First-pass determination of the right ventricular ejection fraction using two regions of interest and the right anterior oblique view 

      Wasserman, H. J.; Otto, A. (HMPG, 1984)
      The right ventricular ejection fraction (RVEF) was determined on the right anterior oblique view in 9 patients during the first pass of a bolus of technetium-99m employing a gamma camera with high count-rate capability. ...

    • Hybrid imaging using low-dose, localizing computed tomography enhances lesion localization in renal hyperparathyroidism 

      Doruyter, Alexander G.; Hartley, Tharbit; Ameyo, Jonathan W.; Davids, M. R.; Warwick, James M. (Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2014-03)
      Background Preoperative localization of parathyroid lesions is potentially beneficial in renal patients with hyperparathyroidism. The aim of this study was to determine the localizing value of hybrid single-photon emission ...

    • Nuclear medicine in South Africa 

      Warwick, J. (HMPG, 2003-08)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Why should an issue of CME, a publication primarily directed at generalists, be devoted to nuclear medicine? I am reminded from time to time of how unfamiliar many of my colleagues are with this ...

    • Quantifying the risks of radiation exposure 

      Wasserman, H. J. (Health & Medical Publishing Group, 1986-09)
      The considerations leading to the recommendation of dose-equivalent limits by the International Commision for Radiological Protection are outlined. The dose-equivalent limits are based on radiation risk factors estimated ...

    • Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) of anxiety disorders before and after treatment with citalopram 

      Carey, Paul D.; Warwick, James; Niehaus, Dana J. H.; Van der Linden, Geoffrey; Van Heerden, Barend B.; Harvey, Brian H.; Seedat, Soraya; Stein, Dan J. (BioMed Central, 2004-10)
      Background: Several studies have now examined the effects of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) treatment on brain function in a variety of anxiety disorders including obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), ...

    • Two simple inexpensive photographic methods for viewing ECG-gated radionuclide blood pool images 

      Van Heerden, P. D. R.; Baard, W. P.; Klopper, J. F.; Reyneke, N. J.; Weich, H. F. H.; Blake, R. S.; Przybojewski, J. Z. (HMPG, 1979-04)
      Although the ECG-gated radionuclide blood pool scan (GBPS) has become an established method for studying regional myocardial wall motion, it is usually performed with the aid of an expensive computer system. A simple, ...

    • An update on the management of breast cancer in Africa 

      Vanderpuye, V.; Grover, S.; Hammad, N.; Prabhakar, Pooja; Simonds, H.; Olopade, F.; Stefan, D. C (BioMed Central, 2017-02-14)
      ENGLISH SUMMARY : Background: There is limited information about the challenges of cancer management and attempts at improving outcomes in Africa. Even though South and North Africa are better resourceds to tackle the ...

    • Ventilasiestudies van die long met kripton-81m 

      Klopper, J. F.; Van Heerden, P. D. R.; Baard, W. P. (HMPG, 1981-08)
      During a 2-year study period it was found that krypton-81m was useful in routine clinical practice. During this period 1563 technetium-99m perfusion studies and 807 krypton-81m ventilation studies were performed. A distinct ...
