We report an interesting case of hepatic ACC in a young woman with clinical signs of virilization.A-21-year old Sundanese woman visited our endocrine clinic with progressive hirsutism over the face, body, and extremities starting 14 years previously. She had irregular, heavy periods when she was 7 years old. She also experienced pubertal development of her breasts. However, both menstrual cycle and breast development ceased when she was 8 years old. She noticed voice deepening and alopecia. Physical examination showed male-type alopecia and intense hirsutism. Tanner stage was 3 for breast tissue and 5 for pubic hair. There...

In this study, a novel image-based finite element modeling algorithm is proposed to acquire the real three-dimensional topography of void defects, including micro X-ray computed tomography scanning, image processing, non-uniform rational B-spline reconstruction and Boolean logic operation. This new algorithm can solve the reconstruction of blurry tomographic slices. Epoxy resin specimens embedded with a low-density expanded polystyrene bead as void defect were fabricated and tested with a digital image correlation system. By using the developed modeling method, the effects of void defect on the ultimate strength, Young's m...

ConclusionsChange in nephrometry scoring measurements correlates with grade of cancer in small renal masses but falls short of significantly predicting presence of malignancy or grade of cancer on nomogram in patients opting for active surveillance for small renal masses. At present, this approach may be inadequate for decision-making.

Authors: Liu Z, Li Y, Luo Q Abstract Our study investigated the relationship between CT signs of colon cancer and the expression of miR-146a, to evaluate their predictive value in early diagnosis and of colon cancer. A total of 216 patients with colon cancer who were admitted to the Department of Hematology and Oncology in Yingcheng Hospital, the Second Hospital of Shandong University in Zhaoyuan City from January 2013 to March 2017 were selected as the study group. At the same time, 150 patients with benign colitis were also included to serve as the control group. CT scan was performed for patients in both the stu...

Authors: Buwenge M, Cilla S, Cammelli S, Macchia G, Arcelli A, Farina E, Frakulli R, Panni V, Wondemagegnhu T, Uddin AFMK, Sumon MA, Deodato F, Morganti AG Abstract The purpose of the present study was to propose an optimized 2D technique (2D-conformal) for radiotherapy (RT) of pancreatic cancer (CaP). This technique is based on double simulation which resolves the problems of radiographic image distortion. Five patients with locally advanced CaP were identified and enrolled. Treatment planning was simulated in 3 different ways: Two dimensional-standard (2D-SRT), 2D-conformal (2D-CRT), and three dimensional-conform...
