The aim of our study was to assess variations in sarcopenia in patients scheduled for neoadjuvant cisplatin-based chemotherapy (NAC) and RC for muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) and to explore the impact of sarcopenia on complications linked to NAC or surgery. METHODS: Between 2012 and 2017, 82 consecutive patients who underwent NAC and RC for c...

We present a case report of an adult woman with AKL-positive ALCL, diagnosed by endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspirate (EBUS-TBNA).A 59-year-old women with no history of breast implants, was admitted for a four-month low back pain. Initially, the patient was treated for a spondyloarthropathy, but due to persistence of the symptoms, a lumbosacral MRI was performed, showing changes in morphology and signal intensity in the vertebral body of L3, along with edema and a paravertebral collection that affected the left psoas muscle, suggesting granulomatous spondylodiscitis. Chest CT-scan showed mild left ...

ABVD (doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine, dacarbazine) is standard upfront chemotherapy for adults diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma (HL), but positron emission tomography (PET)-based response data following ABVD is lacking for pediatrics. Among children who received ABVD for HL, we document interim and end of therapy PET-computed tomography (CT) response by Deauville criteria, and survival outcomes following a response-based reduction in involved field radiotherapy (IFRT). Children 18 years of age or below with HL treated with ABVD between 2006 and 2015 who had interim PET/CT scans after 2 cycles of chemotherapy were inclu...

Conclusion 18F-FDG PET/CT seemed to be an excellent diagnostic test in assessment of BMI at initial assessment and staging of Hodgkin lymphoma and DLBCL patients.

Conclusion EORTC criteria and PERCIST had early predictive value to long-term outcome, but moderate value for pCR. Furthermore, PERCIST might show more potential than the EORTC criteria and conventional PET-based parameters to predict prognosis in breast cancer patients following two cycles of neoadjuvant chemotherapy.

Conclusion Multiple myeloma patients who received HDC/ASCT demonstrated a significant decrease in 18FDG uptake in the supratentorial brain and cerebellum, while patients who received CDC did not demonstrate significant changes in the brain 18FDG uptake.

ConclusionPatients with metastatic disease who experience a relatively long survival may be prone to undergo disproportionate recurrent CT imaging. The non-negligible CT radiation-induced cancer risk and mortality should be taken into account in these patients, while the effect of cumulatively administered CT contrast agents on kidney function requires further investigation.

Conclusions: Endoscopic treatment with a rehabilitation program may be a valuable strategy for the management of lung abscess that is refractory to standard antibiotic therapy. Further and larger studiesshould be done to confirm our results.

ConclusionsDespite several limitations affect this analysis, especially related to the heterogeneity of the studies included, MCL is an 18F-FDG-avid lymphoma in most of the cases, with the exception of BM and GI disease. Moreover, 18F-FDG PET/CT seems to be useful in evaluating treatment response and prognosis.

The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that computed tomography texture analysis (CTTA) is accurate for response assessment of Hodgkin lymphoma (HL). A total of 100 patients with HL were identified. CTTA in baseline and interim staging was performed generating volume of interests in lymphoma tissue from which CTTA features including 1st, 2nd, and higher order textural features were extracted. Baseline and interim 2-deoxy-fluor-glucose positron emission tomography results were used to determine therapy response and compared to CTTA in terms of patient outcome. At interim, 1st-order features yielded a significant...
