Conclusions L-SURmax showed the most powerful predictive performance than the other PET parameters in predicting occult lymph node metastasis. The combination of three independent risk factors (carcinoembryonic antigen, cytokeratin 19 fragment, and L-SURmax) can effectively predict occult lymph node metastasis in clinical N0 non–small cell lung cancer patients.

AbstractLymph node assessment is an essential component of the treatment of lung cancer. Identification of the correct “N” stage is important for staging which in turn determines treatment. Assessment of lymph nodes may be accomplished using imaging with CT scan and PET–CT, invasive techniques such as mediastinoscopy, endobronchial ultrasound transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) or endoscopic ultrasoun d fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA). Ultimately, regardless of any pre-resection assessment, lymph nodes must be assessed at the time of resection. The question to be addressed in this report is the ...

AbstractAir leakage is a common complication after pulmonary resection, which is usually caused by direct lung damage during surgery. Herein, we describe a case in which a pulmonary cyst developed rapidly in the right lower lobe and ruptured 10  days after right upper lobectomy. A 49‐year‐old man, who was a heavy smoker, underwent thoracoscopic right upper lobectomy for primary lung cancer. No air leakage was observed postoperatively, and the chest drain tube was removed on postoperative day 1. Although his postoperative course was u neventful for more than a week, extensive subcutaneous emphysema developed unex...

To identify sub-volumes that may predict treatment response to definitive concurrent chemoradiation therapy (CCRT) using parametric-response-mapping (PRM) of co-registered positron-emission-tomography (PET) and dynamic-contrast-enhanced (DCE) computed-tomography (CT) in locally advanced cervical carcinoma.

CONCLUSIONS: Imaging of head and neck cancer with 18F-PARPi is feasible and safe. 18F-PARPi detects primary and metastatic lesions, and retention in tumors is longer than in healthy tissues. PMID: 32245901 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionSarcopenia is a potential early marker of poor prognosis among patients with metastatic BC treated with CDK 4/6 inhibitors. CT scan evaluation of sarcopenia and adiposity revealed significant prognostic information. Visceral fat could also play an important role in response to CDK 4/6 inhibitors, deserving further investigation.

This study aims to determine the impact of sarcopenia on survival and late toxicity in a large cohort of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) patients treated with definitive (chemo)radiotherapy ((C)RT). MATERIALS AND METHODS: HNSCC patients treated with definitive (C)RT from January 2007 to June 2016 were included. Sarcopenia was assessed from radiation planning computed tomography (CT) scans using skeletal muscles at level C3. The impact of sarcopenia on overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) was evaluated using the Kaplan-Meier method. Multivariable association models were developed to asses...

We present a case of a 79 year old patient with a medical history of unilateral nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy due to a pT3aN0 (Gleason score 7) prostate carcinoma. Because of slightly elevated prostate specific antigen (PSA) level (0.35ng/dL), a fluorine-18-prostate specific membrane antigen (18F-PSMA)-1007 positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scan was performed, showing no signs of malignant recurrence. However, a moderately PSMA-avid nodular lesion was observed in the left occipital region with homogeneous contrast enhancement, suggestive for a meningioma, which was confirmed on magnetic resona...
