Publication date: Available online 15 October 2019Source: Materials Science and Engineering: CAuthor(s): M. Ramazanilar, A. MojraAbstractThe biological tissue could be considered as a porous matrix filled with the interstitial fluid. The tumoral tissue has a different permeability from the healthy tissue. With regard to this knowledge, the main objective of the present study is to study the tissue permeability as a diagnostic parameter for the detection of breast cancer. To this end, the healthy and the cancerous specimens of the breast tissue are taken from 17 female cases. All cancerous tumors are in the vascular phase o...

Abstract The diagnosis of prostate cancer has changed. Improved magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology with diffusion-weighted imaging has led to the use of multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) before biopsy in patients suspected of having prostate cancer. This has the advantage that patients with a negative mpMRI may not need biopsy, therefore avoiding the risk of complications. Those in whom mpMRI is positive can have targeted biopsies with a higher probability of diagnosing clinically significant cancer. Prostate Cancer UK (PCUK) and the British Society of Urogenital Radiology submitted a Freedom of Information (FO...

Patients who are diagnosed with a 2 percent chance of developing breast cancer are less likely to return for the recommended 6-month scan if they have high out-of-pocket expenses, says a new  studypublished in theJournal of the American College of Radiology. Researchers from Johns Hopkins ’s Department of Radiology studied records of more than 190 women who were given the BI-RADS category 3 assessment between February 1, 2011 and June 30, 2017. They found that 57 percent went to their scheduled follow-up MRI within 10 months, 18 percent received the examination slightly after 10 mo nths, and 24 percent (or ...

In conclusion, a novel yet reliable method for the measurement of intracellular 18F-FDG via GS has been developed, and our results indicate that 18F-FDG uptake is associated with radiation and cetuximab response in HNSCC. PMID: 31620196 [PubMed]

We present unusual treatment outcome in a 59-year-old male diagnosed with metastatic lung adenocarcinoma with a very good response to ruxolitinib as monotherapy. In June 2017, this patient was diagnosed with myeloproliferative neoplasm – Janus-associated kinases 2 positive – and in December 2017 ruxolitinib therapy was started. At the same time, patient was diagnosed with lung adenocarcinoma in the left lower lobe with positive anaplastic lymphoma kinase mutation and with right lower lobe metastasis. Because of partial regression of tumor size noted on the computed tomography (CT) scans during tumor investigati...

We describe a case involving a 67-year-old ovarian cancer patient who underwent multiple lines of chemotherapy and presented with recurrent disease and a CA-125 of 4112 U/mL. Thenceforth, she was treated with GL-ONC1 oncolytic viral therapy that was administered laparoscopically in accordance with a clinical trial. The patient subsequently received chemotherapy and during the fourth cycle, her CA-125 decreased to 99 U/mL; moreover, a computed tomography scan of the pelvis exhibited significant disease reduction. Viral therapy hypothetically confers significant promise in the treatment of recurrent ovarian cancer, especiall...

Aim The aim of this study was to estimate the influence of biological parameters assessed in [18F]FDG PET/CT on overall survival (OS) in cervical cancer patients. Methods Retrospective analysis was performed on a group of 371 patients with newly diagnosed and histologically confirmed cervical cancer. PET biological parameters in primary tumor including SUVmax, SUVmean, total lesion glycolysis (TLG), metabolic tumor volume (MTV), heterogeneity, and parameters referring both to primary tumor and metastatic lesions: SUVtotal, TLGtotal, and MTVtotal, were analyzed. Results Based on PET/CT results, 3 subgroups were iden...

We present images of 177Lu-DOTATATE scan and 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT scan conducted on a 65-year-old man with prostate cancer with neuroendocrine differentiation, whose disease progressed despite conventional treatment and 177Lu-PSMA radioligand therapy; however, an extraordinary radiographic tumor remission, biochemical response, and improvement of clinical symptoms were observed after the patient underwent 177Lu-DOTATATE peptide receptor radionuclide therapy.
