Computed tomography-guided percutaneous microwave ablation for pulmonary multiple ground-glass opacities

Guoliang Xue, Zhichao Li, Gang Wang, Zhigang Wei, Xin YeJournal of Cancer Research and Therapeutics 2021 17(3):811-813 With the wide application of low-dose computed tomography (CT) and high-resolution CT, the increasing cases of pulmonary nodules are identified through routine thoracic imaging examination, many of which are presented as multiple ground-glass opacities (GGOs). The multiple GGOs could be divided into four pathological types and usually got different combined mutation patterns, suggesting that each GGO is an independent event and should be treated separately. However, there is no established guideline to the treatment of multiple GGOs so far. Here, we report a multiple GGOs case with a different mutation pattern treated by CT-guided percutaneous microwave ablation.

ConclusionThe proposed methodology and presented software solution provides the capability to assess quantitatively myocardial metabolism acquired by routine [18F]FDG PET/CT scanning during cancer treatment for evaluating anthracycline-induced cardiotoxicity. The [18F]FDG PET/CT septal-lateral uptake ratio is proposed as a new quantitative measure of myocardial metabolism.

hsen Beheshti Accurate primary staging is the cornerstone in all malignancies. Different morphological imaging modalities are employed in the evaluation of prostate cancer (PCa). Regardless of all developments in imaging, invasive histopathologic evaluation is still the standard method for the detection and staging of the primary PCa. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) play crucial roles; however, functional imaging provides additional valuable information, and it is gaining ever-growing acceptance in the management of PCa. Targeted imaging with different radiotracers has remarkably evolved i...

CONCLUSIONS: We found that small bowel dilatation is the most important CT profile for identifying PH patients contraindicated for laparoscopic reduction. Despite the retrospective design of this study, these CT profiles are expected to define the scope of laparoscopic reduction in PH patients and to establish indications for the laparoscopic approach.PMID:34691304 | PMC:PMC8512502 | DOI:10.5114/wiitm.2021.103964

However, chemoresistance is a problem that limits the effectiveness of chemotherapy. Many factors influence chemoresistance, including drug inactivation, changes in drug targets, overexpression of ABC transporters, epithelial-to-mesenchymal transitions, apoptotic dysregulation, and cancer stem cells. The effectiveness of chemotherapy can be assessed clinically and pathologically. Clinical response evaluation is based on physical examin...
