Risk of malignancy in pancreatic cysts with cytology of high-grade epithelial atypia.

The risk of malignancy is weighed against the attendant risks of surgery in the clinical management of pancreatic cysts. The latter are a group of histologically diverse and prognostically variable en...

Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging findings of pancreatic hamartoma: A case report and literature review.

Pancreatic hamartoma is a rare benign malformation that resembles a neoplasm and may be mistaken for a malignancy. The imaging findings of pancreatic hamartoma are not well established, as only one ra...

Rationale and feasibility of mucin expression profiling by qRT-PCR as diagnostic biomarkers in cytology specimens of pancreatic cancer.

Aberrantly expressed mucin glycoproteins (MUC) play important roles in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), yet their use as a diagnostic aid in fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is poorly docu...

Mucin-producing hepatic cystic neoplasms: an uncommon but challenging disease often misdiagnosed and mismanaged.

Mucin-producing hepatic cystic neoplasms (MHCN) are uncommon and potentially malignant.

Evaluation of Pancreatic Fibrosis With Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse Imaging and Automated Quantification of Pancreatic Tissue Components.

The aim of this study was to determine whether computer-assisted digital analysis and acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) imaging were useful for assessing pancreatic fibrosis, and if ARFI imaging...

Use of PET Imaging to Distinguish Malignant From Benign IPMN

Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) is a cystic pancreatic lesion that is a precursor to invasive pancreatic cancer. Differentiating whether an IPMN lesion is benign or malignan...

Pancreatic Core Biopsy Needle Study in Patients Suspected of Pancreatic Malignancy

This study evaluates whether a new endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) histology needle may improve the diagnostic yield during biopsies of pancreatic lesions

Comparison Between Dual Energy/Subtraction CT With MRI for the Identification of Predictors of Malignancy in Cystic Pancreatic Lesions

Cystic pancreatic lesions are increasingly detected incidentally in imaging studies, reportedly in up to 45% of the abdominal Magnetic Resonance (MR) examinations. The majority of these le...

Irreversible Electroporation for Inoperable Hepatic and Pancreatic Malignancy

The objectives of this study are to study the safety and effect of IRE as a treatment for inoperable hepatic and pancreatic malignancy.

Non-hypovascular Solid Pancreatic Lesions: Role of EUS

Vascular pattern of solid pancreatic lesions (SPLs) has been investigated by different abdominal imaging modalities and by contrast-enhanced endoscopic ultrasonography (CE-EUS). Compared w...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.

A gel-forming mucin that is primarily found on the surface of gastric epithelium and in the RESPIRATORY TRACT. Mucin 5AC was originally identified as two distinct proteins, however a single gene encodes the protein which gives rise to the mucin 5A and mucin 5C variants.

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 primary malignant neoplasm of the pancreatic ISLET CELLS. Usually it involves the non-INSULIN-producing cell types, the PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS and the pancreatic delta cells (SOMATOSTATIN-SECRETING CELLS) in GLUCAGONOMA and SOMATOSTATINOMA, respectively.

A gel-forming mucin that is predominantly expressed by submucosal glands of airway tissues and the SUBLINGUAL GLAND. It is one of the principal components of high molecular weight salivary mucin.
