Reference values and variation of acetabular angles measured by computed tomography in 170 asymptomatic hips.
CONCLUSION: We found considerable variation in the values for acetabular angles. There were gender differences in the sector angles and for the AcAV. Knowledge of reference values is important when we attempt to diagnose the pathological hip conditions. PMID: 30818980 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion The dynamic second and third phase could potentially provide good predictors of clinicopathological discrimination, as can the early and delayed phases.
AbstractThis observational study aimed to evaluate the prognostic significance of interim and final18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET/CT) responses to upfront autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) in patients with peripheral T cell lymphomas (PTCLs). A total of 118 patients, from two independent institutions, with newly diagnosed PTCLs were enrolled, and 96 of them were evaluated. PET/CT was assessed at diagnosis, and during and after the primary treatment. Clinical outcomes of interim and final PET/CT were compared between transplanted and non-transplanted patients. The resp...
CONCLUSION: Our data revealed a high concordance rate between the Lugano and Ann Arbor staging system in Japanese patients with HL. Because of its low diagnostic value, routine bone marrow examination might be unnecessary for staging when FDG-PET/CT is used as a substitute. PMID: 31802636 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: 68Ga-pentixafor might be a promising imaging agent for the assessment of WM/LPL.
Authors: Melenotte C, Million M, Raoult D Abstract Introduction: Coxiella burnetii infection is still challenging physicians, mainly because no international coordination has been stated to standardize the therapeutic strategy and improve the clinical outcomes.Areas covered: Based on the recent knowledge on Q fever, we review here the clinical practices from Q fever diagnosis to therapy. We searched Pubmed and Google Scholar to perform the qualitative synthesis.Expert opinion: Four major critical points are highlighted in this review. The first point is that Q fever diagnosis has been reviewed in the light of the n...
ConclusionMeningeal metastasis of ENKTL is rare; when patients present with nervous system symptoms, CNS metastasis should be considered as a possibility, even in the early stage. The OS of our patient was 15 months, which is the longest survival time reported in the literature, probably due to early diagnosis and comprehensive management, including intrathecal therapy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy of the whole brain and spinal cord.
ConclusionsCardiac substructure delineation using E-CTA was feasible and inclusion in optimization led to modest improvements in sparing of radiosensitive cardiac substructures for some patients.
Authors: Xiao-Xue W, Xinyue H, Lijun Z Abstract BACKGROUND: Positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) and bone marrow biopsy are currently the common clinical examination of lymphoma infiltration. The aim of this research is to evaluate the value of PET-CT in diagnosis of bone marrow infiltration, clinical staging and pathological typing of lymphoma. METHODS: 153 cases were analyzed retrospectively to compare the consistency of PET-CT and bone marrow biopsy. We analyzed the sensitivity, accuracy and specificity of PET-CT in different clinical pathology of lymphoma. RESULTS: The PET-CT sensit...
ConclusionModels based on clinical, SUV, and radiomic features of18F ‐FDG PET/CT images could accurately discriminate breast carcinoma from breast lymphoma.
