Diagnostic Usefulness of Combination of Diffusion-weighted Imaging and T2WI, Including Apparent Diffusion Coefficient in Breast Lesions

Conclusion Combining DWI, T2WI, and ADC values provides increased accuracy for differentiation between benign and malignant lesions, compared with DCE-MRI. A lower ADC value was associated with a higher histologic grade cancer.

Authors: Schuler PJ, von Witzleben A, Doescher J, Wollenberg B, Dietz A, Hoffmann TK Abstract In recent years, immunotherapy has been shown to be a promising approach for the treatment of various tumor entities. Due to further pharmacological developments and new studies, the checkpoint inhibitors have now arrived in the clinic. To date, patients with cancers in the head and neck region have benefited from these agents as part of a palliative therapy. Current clinical trials are testing other indications for the checkpoint inhibitors as monotherapy or in combination with other therapeutic approaches. The ...

ConclusionsA small subset of pulmonary adenocarcinomas shows immunoreactivity for ER clones 6F11 and 1D5 in FNA samples (18.2% and 9.1%, respectively). The absence of immunoreactivity for ER‐SP1 clone indicates higher specificity of this clone in non‐breast tissue. The differential diagnostic value of all ER clones in malignant PEs appears to be secure. Larger studies are necessary to validate this observation.

CONCLUSION The CT-defined hDAI was not an independent predictor of unfavorable short- and long-term outcomes and should not be used for acute prognostication in msTBI patients. Predominant hDAI patients had good clinical outcomes when supported to intensive care unit discharge and beyond. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE Prognostic study, level III.

A 38-year-old female, otherwise fit and well, presented with a mass on her left medial bulbar conjunctiva that had been enlarging for several months. Examinations showed a fixed pinkish tumour, 9 mm in maximum extent, spanning from the plica to the medial limbus. The tumour was removed in toto. Histology revealed it to be a biphasic tumour composed of lobules and infiltrative cords within a sclerotic matrix. The cells were spindle-shaped to epithelioid, with nuclear atypia and occasional mitotic figures. The tumour was positive for smooth muscle actin, beta-catenin, and vimentin. All other markers of myoepithelial differen...

Conclusions: There have been great advances in therapeutic research in MS. However, the stratification of patients according to their prognosis and predictive outcomes in response to treatment is still in its infancy. The many facets of MS make it difficult to piece all the data together into one cohesive conclusion for the individual patient. The visual system, with our ability to assess both structure and function, offers a promising opportunity to study both pathophysiologic mechanisms and novel therapies.
