Conclusion: The Ki–SURstat correlations were considerably stronger than the Ki–SUV correlations. The good Ki–SURstat correlations suggest that static 18F-FDG PET/CT and SURstat analysis provides an alternative to dynamic 18F-FDG PET/CT and Patlak analysis, allowing the assessment of inflammation of whole lungs, repeated measurements within the period of 18F-FDG decay, and faster data acquisition.

ConclusionAlthough PDL is a benign condition, in most of the time, it needs aggressive management because of the possibility of malignancy or other critical diseases.

ConclusionsThis is the first case report to describe pneumorachis and pneumocephalus following blunt trauma with pneumothorax, but no spinal or skull fractures. The mechanism that is probably involved here is a migration of air with subcutaneous emphysema and a pleural hernia into the spinal canal. However, in cases of pneumorachis or pneumocephalus, skull fractures need to be investigated as these require surgery and appropriate vaccination to prevent meningitis.

ChuAbstractFrom the literature, the managements for nephropulmonary fistula were variable. We would like to present our case and review the literature for the best method of care.The common features were 1) infected kidney; 2) ipsilateral lower lobe pneumonia or pleural effusion; 3) sputum and urine culture growing the same organism. Renal gaseous content may not be present on x-ray or even CT scan.The choice of management for the nephropulmonary fistula was diverse. However, conservative management...

We presented the physics preparations and clinical workflow required for implementing MRI-based HDR IBT (MRI-HDR-IBT) of gynecologic cancer patients in a high-volume brachytherapy center. The present document is designed to focus on the clinical steps required from a physicist's standpoint. Those steps include: (a) testing IBT equipment with MRI scanner, (b) preparation of templates and catheters, (c) preparation of MRI line markers, (d) acquisition, importation and registration of MRI images, (e) development of treatment plans and (f) treatment evaluation and documentation. The checklists of imaging acquisition, registrat...

Abstract Tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica is a rare benign condition where multiple cartilaginous or bony submucosal nodules project into the trachea or bronchi. A 71-year-old man complained of cough for 3 months. Computed tomography scanning revealed a calcified tracheal tumor near the tracheal bifurcation. Pulmonary function testing indicated airflow limitation, and bronchoscopic examination confirmed a solitary rigid tumor. Bronchoscopic resection was performed under general anesthesia, and the tumor was detached by cauterizing its stem with high-frequency coagulation. The tumor was pathologically indi...

Authors: Chedid MF, Zahler S, Chedid AD, Leipnitz I, Prediger JE, Giampaoli AZD, Lopes BB, Kruel CRP, Grezzana-Filho TJM Abstract Shunts between the superior mesenteric vein (SMV) and the right renal vein (RRV) are very rare. Here, we describe and depict the rare case of a liver transplant (LT) in the setting of shunt between SMV and RRV. A 67-year-old white man presenting with Child C cirrhosis secondary to hemochromatosis and persistent encephalopathy was listed for LT. Preoperative abdominal angiotomography revealed the presence of a large spontaneous shunt between the SMV and the RRV. The patient underwent LT b...

We present a case of a 25 year old with HME who was referred for thoracic surgery assessment due to severe right sided chest pain. Computer tomography (CT) scan allowed pre-operative planning of the lesion. Under general anaesthesia, right video assisted thorascopic surgery (VATS) was performed through a cosmetic retro-mammary incision. Complete removal of the tumour resolved symptoms and she was subsequently discharged two days later.We show that VATS surgery with cosmetically placed muscle sparing incision allowed accurate resection with faster recovery.
