Summary of "Value of Diffusion-Weighted Magnetic Resonance Imaging Combined with miR-18a Level in Predicting Radiosensitivity of Cervical Cancer."

BACKGROUND Radioresistance during radiotherapy of cervical cancer often leads to treatment failure; therefore, there is an urgent need to develop effective predictive indicators of radiosensitivity for cervical cancer patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS Cervical cancer cells were collected from 40 patients who received surgical resections. The relationships between apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values of masses before surgery and different micro-RNAs (miRNA) levels (miR-18a, miR-132, and miR-145) of these cells were investigated. Cervical cancer cells were divided into 4 groups according to the ADC values of original tumor tissues and expression level of miR-18a. Then, these cells were exposed with irradiation both in vitro and in vivo. RESULTS Advanced cervical cancer showed lower ADC values in magnetic resonance imaging. miR-18a, miR-132, and miR-145 all were increased in the cervical cancer tissues, while miR-18a showed a more marked negative correlation with ADC values. The results of in vitro and in vivo assays showed that higher expression of miR-18a in cervical cancer cells leads to more radiosensitivity, especially in cells from cancer tissues with lower ADC values. CONCLUSIONS The combination of ADC values with expression level of miR-18a may be a new and reliable predictor for radiosensitivity of cervical cancer, helping cervical cancer patients with low ADC values and high expressions of miR-18a to achieve better outcomes in radiotherapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of diffusion ANISOTROPY data from diffusion magnetic resonance imaging results to construct images based on the direction of the faster diffusing molecules.

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

A diagnostic technique that incorporates the measurement of molecular diffusion (such as water or metabolites) for tissue assessment by MRI. The degree of molecular movement can be measured by changes of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) with time, as reflected by tissue microstructure. Diffusion MRI has been used to study BRAIN ISCHEMIA and tumor response to treatment.

A technique applicable to the wide variety of substances which exhibit paramagnetism because of the magnetic moments of unpaired electrons. The spectra are useful for detection and identification, for determination of electron structure, for study of interactions between molecules, and for measurement of nuclear spins and moments. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, 7th edition) Electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy is a variant of the technique which can give enhanced resolution. Electron spin resonance analysis can now be used in vivo, including imaging applications such as MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.

Spectroscopic method of measuring the magnetic moment of elementary particles such as atomic nuclei, protons or electrons. It is employed in clinical applications such as NMR Tomography (MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING).
