Other studies suggest that initiation of EN in ICU patients within the 48-72 hours of admission improves immune response, enhances the cellular antioxidant system, decreases the hypermetabolic response to tissue injury, preserves intestinal integrity, and improves wound healing (Barr et al.
In the realm of proteomics, a three-amino acid profile detectable in saliva that exploits the hypermetabolic and hypercatabolic nature of cancer was found to have an area under the curve of 0.
In the realm of proteomics, a three--amino acid profile detectable in saliva that exploits the hypermetabolic and hypercatabolic nature of cancer was found to have an area under the curve of 0.
The PETCT confirmed a hypermetabolic mass in the left hemipelvis in close association with the left ovary (Figure 2), corresponding to the pathologic diagnosis of ovarian carcinoma.
Due to the patient's history of NHL, a positron emission tomography (PET) scan of the whole body was performed, but did not demonstrate any other abnormal hypermetabolic lesions except for the left posterior frontal mass.
Distinguishing the hypermetabolic response to burns from sepsis is challenging, and as such, the wound swabs sent from the burns unit may often reflect colonising bacteria rather than invasive pathogens.
6) Initial positron emission tomography (PET) imaging revealed a mildly hypermetabolic paraesophageal lymph node, but no other findings consistent with advanced disease.
A PETCT showed uptake in the lesion of concern, as well as focal hypermetabolic activity at the cecum without a clear anatomic correlate.
Positron emission tomography (PET), performed in the hematology clinic, revealed hypermetabolic areas in the right iliac bone, which may be associated with bone marrow involvement.
During regular follow-up 6 months after the cessation of radiotherapy, F18-fluorodeoxy-glucose positron-emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) detected a hypermetabolic lesion in the left lobe of the liver that was diagnosed as a metastasis of the head and neck SCC; no locoregional recurrence was found.
Unlike benign lesions, malignant adrenal masses are usually hypermetabolic and will demonstrate increased FDG uptake (Figure 8).
In the future we may evaluate its use in hypermetabolic states such as pancreatitis/ IMHA/SIRS etc.
