The objective of the present study was to evaluate the beneficial effect of endorectal power Doppler/grayscale ultrasound-guided biopsy over that of mpMRI/TRUS-guided biopsy for decision-making regarding prostatectomy in males with a high risk of prostate cancer. Data regarding endorectal power Doppler/grayscale ultrasound-guided biopsies and mpMRI/TRUS-guided biopsies of 1,094 males with elevated specific prostate antigen, were included. Radical prostatectomy was performed in males aged

CONCLUSIONS Elastography is a useful imaging technique in differentiating benign breast masses from malignant ones. The strong relationship between prognostic factors and elastographic measures also demonstrated its excellent performance in predicting the prognosis of breast malignancies.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewAlthough liquid biopsies hold significant promise in the management of patients with cancer, peripheral blood analyses remain dependent on the degree of tumor burden with prohibitively low yields until the cancer is widely metastatic. Multiple lines of evidence support a dynamic, spatiotemporal localization of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) supporting specific targeting of vascular compartments, such as the portal vein. This review discusses the literature evaluating the possibility of portal venous blood as a new, potentially higher yield liquid biopsy and the current devices and techniques for en...

Authors: Yalcin S, Kaya E, Ebiloglu T, Akay S, Zor M, Sarıkaya S, Yilmaz S, Bedir S Abstract OBJECTIVES: In this research, we designed a cognitive fusion(CF) prostate biopsy(PB) (CFPB) technique by examining the multiparametric MRI of prostate (MP_MRI-P) images in a smart-phone near the trans-rectal ultrasound (TRUS) device, and examined the results. METHODS: Between January 2011 and January 2017, a total of 344 men who had PB enrolled in this study. Group 1 had a minimum of a 12-core standard TRUS PB (TRUSPB). Group 2 had CFPB while examining the MP_ MRI-P images in a smartphone near the TRUS device. A minimu...

AbstractIn patients with thyroid fine-needle aspiration (FNA) report of suspicious for malignancy (SFM), both lobectomy and thyroidectomy might be considered. BRAF mutation analysis could guide towards accurate surgical therapy. The primary outcome was the reliability of BRAF (V600E) in detecting malignancy in nodules with FNA reading of SFM. The secondary outcome was to analyze its positive predictive value (PPV) and negative predictive value (NPV) considering the surgical histology as gold standard. A literature search of online databases was performed in June 2019. BRAF prevalence among thyroid nodules with FNA read as ...

Authors: Wang G, Li X, Li L, Liu D, Sun R, Zhang Q, Geng C, Gong H, Gao X Abstract Clinical value of ultrasonic imaging in diagnosis of hypopharyngeal cancer with cervical lymph node metastasis was investigated. Eighty-nine patients who were diagnosed with hypopharyngeal cancer in Qilu Hospital of Shandong University (Qingdao) from January 2014 to June 2016 were retrospectively analyzed. Sixty-eight patients were diagnosed with hypopharyngeal cancer with cervical lymph node metastasis by pathological sections. Twenty-one patients did not have cervical lymph node metastasis. All the patients were diagnosed by palpat...
