The purpose of this study is to determine whether a convolutional neural network (CNN) can predict the maximum standardized uptake value (SUV) of lymph nodes in patients with cancer using the unenhanced CT images from a PET/CT examination, thus providing a proof of concept for potentially using deep learning to diagnose nodal involvement.

We aimed to investigate whether the tumor-to-blood SUV ratio (SUR) and metabolic parameters of F-FDG uptake could predict occult lymph node metastasis (OLM) in clinically node-negative (cN0) lung aden...
The favorable oncological impact of D3 lymph node dissection after colon cancer surgery has been described previously. However, D3 lymph node dissection is potentially more invasive than conventional ...
Surgical indications for rectal neuroendocrine tumors with potential lymph node metastasis remain controversial. Although accurate preoperative diagnosis of nodal status may be helpful for treatment s...
We investigated the prognostic value of F-FDG uptake in the supraclavicular lymph node (SCLN) on PET/CT in breast cancer patients with clinical ipsilateral SCLN metastasis (cN3c).
Vascularized lymph node transfer (VLNT) has become the established treatment for secondary lymphedema. The proposed mechanisms of VLNT include lymphangiogenesis and absorptive action of transplanted l...
Objectives: 1. To further validate the predictive efficacy of our established microRNA prediction model of HCC lymph node metastasis. 2. To establish a precise therapeutic...
RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as lymph node mapping and sentinel lymph node identification, performed before and during surgery, may improve the ability to detect lymph node metas...
This study is divided into three stages. In the first stage, the investigators try to explore the objective clinical imaging standard of cN0PTC on the basis of previous studies, formulate ...
In the previous study, we established a predictive model for non-sentinel lymph node involvement in early breast cancer (cT1-2cN0, 1-2 SLNs involvement). To validation the clinical value o...
To establish a predicting system on axillary lymph node metastasis based on peripheral blood CK19mRNA and contrast-enhanced ultrasound.
First lymph node to receive drainage from the primary tumor. SENTINEL LYMPH NODE BIOPSY is performed to determine early METASTASIS status because cancer cells may appear first in the sentinel node.
A diagnostic procedure used to determine whether LYMPHATIC METASTASIS has occurred. The sentinel lymph node is the first lymph node to receive drainage from a neoplasm.
Malignant lymphoma in which the lymphomatous cells are clustered into identifiable nodules within the LYMPH NODES. The nodules resemble to some extent the GERMINAL CENTER of lymph node follicles and most likely represent neoplastic proliferation of lymph node-derived follicular center B-LYMPHOCYTES.
The local lymph node assay (LLNA) is an alternative method for the identification of chemicals that have the ability to cause skin sensitization and allergic contact dermatitis. Endpoints have been established so fewer animals are required and less painful procedures are used.
The historic designation for scrofula (TUBERCULOSIS, LYMPH NODE). The disease is so called from the belief that it could be healed by the touch of a king. This term is used only for historical articles using the name "king's evil", and is to be differentiated from scrofula as lymph node tuberculosis in modern clinical medicine. (From Webster, 3d ed)
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
