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 ...

AbstractObjectiveTo evaluate the efficacy of multiparametric magnetic resonance/transrectal ultrasound fusion (MRI/TRUS fusion) biopsy versus systematic biopsy and its association with PI-RADS v2 categories in patients with suspected prostate cancer.Materials and methods122 patients undergoing both MRI/TRUS fusion and systematic biopsy, with suspicion of prostate cancer, with suspicious findings on MRI based on PI-RADS v2, were included between April 2016 and March 2017. Comparison of tumor detection rates using each technique and combined techniques was performed for all lesions as well as those that are traditionally dif...

AbstractPurposeTransrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided biopsy has been the traditional biopsy route in the detection of prostate cancer. However, due to concern regarding overdetection of low-risk cancer and missed clinically significant cancers as well as risk of sepsis, alternative approaches have been explored. Transperineal template biopsy —sampling the gland every 5 m to 10 mm—reduces error by sampling the whole prostate but increases risk of detecting clinically insignificant cancers as well as conferring risks of side effects such as urinary retention and bleeding.MethodsThere are various targeted...

The objective of the paper is to study cases of premalignant and malignant tumors, with a view to their imagistic identification confirmed in terms of histopathology, to highlight the accuracy of the imagistic examination as an important factor in the diagnosis and adaptation of an appropriate therapeutic attitude. The study was performed on a batch of 768 patients admitted to the Department of Surgery III, "Prof. Dr. Alexandru Trestioreanu" Institute of Oncology, Bucharest, Romania. The classical examined hypothesis is local examination, mammography, ultrasound, with its variations, and histopathological (HP) co...

AbstractObjectivesTo evaluate the usefulness of bilateral mammography in male patients with unilateral breast symptoms, including investigation of the diagnostic performance of unilateral and bilateral reviews and the average glandular dose (AGD) per exposure.MethodsTwo hundred seventy-one consecutive male patients (mean age, 57  years) with unilateral breast symptoms underwent bilateral mammography. Image interpretation was performed in two ways, first with a unilateral review of the symptomatic breast and then with a bilateral review. A modified BI-RADS scale (from 1 to 5) was used. The diagnostic performance of uni...
