Imaging Features of Sclerosing Angiomatoid Nodular Transformation in Spleen
Conclusions Imaging features on CT and MR have a high diagnostic value for SANT, especially when CT combined with MR examination.
ConclusionCT fluoroscopy-guided CNB for pulmonary nodules ≤ 8 mm showed a high diagnostic yield without severe complications.
Conclusions3-dimensional printing technique-assisted arthroscopic bone graft and fixation of scaphoid nonunion constitute an effective and accurate clinical treatment option.
ConclusionThe RHV drainage area resection could be one of the options of hepatic resection for the tumor involving the root of the RHV. ICG fluorescent imaging in hepatic resection of the RHV drainage area is useful for determining areas of liver congestion and clamping the PHA is not always necessary.
ConclusionPETCECT is a valuable tool to rule out metastatic disease in patients presenting with LAGBC.
ConclusionsThe novel success scale for evaluating alveolar cleft repair using CBCT takes into consideration all dimensions of the bony bridge. Future application is necessary for validation of its potential value.
Cellular Analytics, a biotechnology company in Ontario, Canada, has unveiled a novel liquid biopsy test for mesothelioma that could lead to more effective management of this rare cancer. The test has the potential to produce a much-earlier diagnosis of disease and the ability to personalize treatment and better predict a patient’s response to specific therapies. “We could change completely how this disease is viewed,” Dr. Brent Zanke, a specialist in diagnostic oncology and chief executive officer of Cellular Analytics, told The Mesothelioma Center at Asbestos.com. “It’s a proactive way to get...
We presented here an 18‐year‐old young adult with chest trauma caused by a fall. Chest computed tomography disclosed a cavitary lesion 10.5 × 8.5 × 6.4 cm3 over right upper lobe (RUL) with bilateral lower lung contusion and a mild haemopneumothorax but without rib fractures. Under conservative treatment, the condition lasted for ~8 months before complete resolution. Detailed temporal changes in chest X ‐ray were recorded for the analysis of natural healing processes.
Objectives: To identify a computed tomography (CT)-based radiomic signature for predicting progression-free survival (PFS) in stage IV anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients treated with tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) crizotinib.Materials and Methods: This retrospective proof-of-concept study included a cohort of 63 stage IV ALK-positive NSCLC patients who had received TKI crizotinib therapy for model construction and validation. Another independent cohort including 105 stage IV EGFR-positive NSCLC patients was also used for external validation in EGFR-TKI treatment. We initi...
ConclusionIn patients with adenomyomatosis, the presence of stones was independently associated with chronic inflammation.
An 85-year-old man presented with left hemiparesis, too late for any intervention. Brain computed tomography (CT) revealed a right hemispheric infarct. He had a history of diabetes mellitus (on metformin, statin), hypertension (on losartan/lercanidipine), past smoking, COPD (on inhalers) and peripheral artery disease (on aspirin).
