|Title:||(67)Ga SPECT/CT accurately localized recurrent hepatic cyst infection in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease||Authors:||Ayesa, Sally Louise ;Gradinscak, Denis J;Schembri, Geoff P||Affliation:||Central Coast Local Health District||Issue Date:||Jul-2014||Source:||39(7):625-8||Journal title:||Clinical Nuclear Medicine||Department:||Radiology||Abstract:||Hepatic pyocyst is a rare but potentially life-threatening complication of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. With extensive hepatic cystic disease, localization of a pyocyst and targeted aspiration or drainage is often a diagnostic challenge. Two patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease and recurrent gram-negative sepsis were imaged with Ga SPECT/CT for investigation of an infective source. In both patients, imaging accurately localized infected pyocysts and guided percutaneous drainage and further management.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/1/2337||DOI:||10.1097/RLU.0000000000000402||Pubmed:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/24662650||Publicaton type:||Journal Article||Keywords:||Diagnostic Imaging
