  • GMI research


    Garran Medical Imaging undertakes quality medical imaging research in a private practice setting. It is been important for us to contribute in as many ways as we can to improving medical care. In addition it helps us confirm the validity of our practices. When we adopt new techniques we to look carefully at existing research […]

    PSMA Scan for prostate cancer

    What is a PSMA scan? PSMA stands for prostate specific membrane antigen, which is a complex protein found in the cell walls of many types of cell, but greatly increased in prostate cancer. Radio-tracers have been developed to attach to the antigen and thus show up abnormal cells, usually related to prostate cancer. A nuclear […]

    What is quantitative bone imaging?

    Quantitative bone imaging is where we measure exactly the amount of tracer in a given volume of interest. This capability has only now become possible with new technological and computer analysis techniques with the use of a specially calibrated xSPECT gamma camera. When analysing the data, we express the result in SUV (standard uptake values), which is […]

    Back pain and Bone scans

    PECT-CT bone scans of the spine have become a clinically useful part of the evaluation of back pain. Uptake seen on a SPECT-CT correlates with metabolic activity in bone and the increased resolution and specificity of SPECT-CT has allowed a greater number and variety of clinically relevant findings.

    Liver Elastography

    What is liver elastography? Liver elastography is also known as shearwave elastography and is a novel technique of assessing tissue stiffness and hence fibrosis.  This technique measures the speed of ultrasound waves as they pass through the liver. The “shearwave” is a perpendicular wave produced as a result of a generated ultrasound pulse through the tissues. […]

    Parathyroid adenoma detection in 2016

    Hyperparathyroidism is most commonly due to parathyroid adenomas or carcinomas. These can frequently be detected with dual phase Sestamibi scans. The sensitivity for detection is poor with planar and SPECT imaging (60-80%) but with the advent of SPECT-CT much higher sensitivities have been achieved (>85%). Multi-glandular disease is uncommon but paradoxically more difficult to detect with all modalities. Now […]

    To biopsy or not -the thyroid nodule dilemna

    Thyroid nodules are very common and a small percentage of these are malignant. Ask 10 thyroid specialists about their approach to biopsy and diagnosis and you will get 10 different approaches. All will be rational and based on reasonable scientific data and on experience. The different approaches arise because the research is varied in its […]

    Ultrasound Aortic Aneurysm Screening

The USPSTF recommends that clinicians selectively offer screening for AAA in men ages 65 to 75 years who […]

    Imaging prosthetic joints in nuclear medicine

    Imaging prosthetic joints in nuclear medicine involves using several different radiotracers. The tracers discussed in this article are: Tc-MDP: bone scintigraphy Tc-sulesomab:  in vivo labelled Fab fragment of IgG1.  While this also binds to neutrophils (5%) and therefore should mimic WBC labelled scans it has a non-specific accumulation at infected sites. 35% of activity at […]
