Abstract

Learning Objectives • Understand how radionuclide imaging is employed in the clinical routine as an important aid for better functional characterization of a variety of non-oncological diseases. • Understand the added value of radionuclide imaging for the diagnosis and functional characterization of a variety of non-oncological conditions upon which to base choice of optimal treatment for each condition. • Provide practical examples derived from the clinical routine illustrating how radionuclide imaging contributes to the diagnosis and choice of optimal treatment in patients with diseases of the brain including dementias and movement disorders. • Provide practical examples derived from the clinical routine illustrating how radionuclide imaging contributes to the diagnosis and choice of optimal treatment in patients with diseases of the cardiovascular system includ ing coronary artery disease, infective endocarditis, large-vessel vasculitis, and cardiac amyloidosis. • Provide practical examples derived from the clinical routine illustrating how radionuclide imaging contributes to the diagnosis and choice of optimal treatment in patients with non-oncological diseases of the musculoskeletal system including metabolic diseases and infection/inflammation. • Provide practical examples derived from the clinical routine illustrating how radionuclide imaging contributes to the diagnosis and choice of optimal treatment in patients with parathyroid adenoma(s). • Provide practical examples derived from the clinical routine illustrating how radionuclide imaging contributes to the diagnosis and choice of optimal treatment in patients with various conditions of the nephro-urinary tract. • Provide practical examples derived from the clinical routine illustrating how radionuclide imaging contributes to the diagnosis and choice of optimal treatment in patients with various functional conditions leading to altered transit through the gastrointestinal tract. • Provide practical examples derived from the clinical routine illustrating how radionuclide imaging contributes to the diagnosis and choice of optimal treatment in patients with secondary peripheral lymphedema.
