The diagnosis of mediastinal space-occupying lesions largely relies on X-ray and computed tomography. However, thanks to technological progress, transthoracic echocardiography can clearly display the ...
We treated a patient with immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) exhibiting an isolated anterior mediastinal mass with high 2-[F]-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) accumulation, which mimicked thymo...
A 68-year-old woman presented with weight loss of 7 kg over two years. Clinical examination revealed no specific abnormality and the patient was otherwise asymptomatic. Chest radiography performed to ...
Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of mediastinal masses allows for rapid on-site evaluation and the triaging of material for ancillary studies. However, surgical pathology is often considered to ...
Multi-center, randomized, multiple-dose study to evaluate the safety, tolerability and efficacy of ACE-011 in patients with osteolytic lesions of multiple myeloma.
It is the aim of this multicentric clinical study to assess the efficacy and tolerability of zoledronic acid in combination with radiotherapy in patients with advanced osteolytic bone lesi...
This phase II trial studies how well copanlisib and nivolumab work in treating participants with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma or primary mediastinal large B-cell lymphoma that has come ba...
This prospective study will include 30 patients with hilar/mediastinal lymph nodes detected by thoracic CT either there was a known lung malignancy (for staging purpose) or not (for diagno...
Differentiation between benign and malignant mediastinal tumors as well as characterization and grading of malignancy which is essential for treatment planning as well as for prognosis
Presence of air in the mediastinal tissues due to leakage of air from the tracheobronchial tree, usually as a result of trauma.
A mass spectrometry technique using two (MS/MS) or more mass analyzers. With two in tandem, the precursor ions are mass-selected by a first mass analyzer, and focused into a collision region where they are then fragmented into product ions which are then characterized by a second mass analyzer. A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.
An analytical method used in determining the identity of a chemical based on its mass using mass analyzers/mass spectrometers.
A form of undifferentiated malignant LYMPHOMA usually found in central Africa, but also reported in other parts of the world. It is commonly manifested as a large osteolytic lesion in the jaw or as an abdominal mass. B-cell antigens are expressed on the immature cells that make up the tumor in virtually all cases of Burkitt lymphoma. The Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN) has been isolated from Burkitt lymphoma cases in Africa and it is implicated as the causative agent in these cases; however, most non-African cases are EBV-negative.
An asymptomatic, autosomal dominant trait in which pea-sized sclerotic spots, prominent in the metaphyseal area, are accompanied by unique cutaneous lesions. These are yellowish papules or plaques with increased elastin content. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, pp1434-35)
