[18F]HX4 PET/CT Imaging for Detection of Hypoxia

2016-11-30 15:45:11 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The aim of this study is to investigate the radiotracer [18F]HX4 for non-invasive detection of hypoxia in patients with head and neck, or lung cancer. Each participant will undergo a diagnostic [18F]HX4 PET/CT scan before beginning radiotherapy treatment. Patient follow up data will be collected from routine appointments, and analysed with the hypoxia scan results to assess whether [18F]HX4 PET/CT scanning can predict patient outcome from radiotherapy treatment.

PET/CT to Image Hypoxia in Head and Neck Tumours

Patients with head and neck cancer will be imaged with PET scan and CT scan in order to determine areas of the tumour that are hypoxic. It is hypothesized that PET /CT will provide inform...

Whole-Neck Computed Tomography Perfusion Scan in Imaging Patients With Head and Neck Tumors

This pilot clinical trial studies how well whole-neck computed tomography perfusion scans work in imaging patients with head and neck tumors. Diagnostic imaging procedures, such as whole-n...

Identification and Characterization of Novel Proteins in Head and Neck Cancer

Through this study, we hope to learn more about the mechanisms, which may contribute to development and progression of head and neck cancer. The long-term goal of this study will be to de...

The Role of CT-PET-MRI Image Fusion in Determining Radiation Treatment Volumes of Head-and-Neck Cancer Patients

Technical developments in radiation oncology are making it possible to deliver a prescribed radiation dose to radiation target volume with increasing accuracy. Therefore it is becoming ev...

For patients with head and neck cancer (HNC), communication difficulties often create substantial barriers in daily life, affecting a person's ability to return to work, establish or maintain relation...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Soft tissue tumors or cancer arising from the mucosal surfaces of the LIP; oral cavity; PHARYNX; LARYNX; and cervical esophagus. Other sites included are the NOSE and PARANASAL SINUSES; SALIVARY GLANDS; THYROID GLAND and PARATHYROID GLANDS; and MELANOMA and non-melanoma skin cancers of the head and neck. (from Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 4th ed, p1651)

Dissection in the neck to remove all disease tissues including cervical LYMPH NODES and to leave an adequate margin of normal tissue. This type of surgery is usually used in tumors or cervical metastases in the head and neck. The prototype of neck dissection is the radical neck dissection described by Crile in 1906.

A form of RHABDOMYOSARCOMA arising primarily in the head and neck, especially the orbit, of children below the age of 10. The cells are smaller than those of other rhabdomyosarcomas and are of two basic cell types: spindle cells and round cells. This cancer is highly sensitive to chemotherapy and has a high cure rate with multi-modality therapy. (From Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p2188)

A symptom, not a disease, of a twisted neck. In most instances, the head is tipped toward one side and the chin rotated toward the other. The involuntary muscle contractions in the neck region of patients with torticollis can be due to congenital defects, trauma, inflammation, tumors, and neurological or other factors.

Large veins on either side of the root of the neck formed by the junction of the internal jugular and subclavian veins. They drain blood from the head, neck, and upper extremities, and unite to form the superior vena cava.
