Summary of "Clinical Implications of Decreased Computed Tomography Value after Ramucirumab in Advanced Gastric Cancer."

This study aimed to evaluate whether a decrease of computed tomography (CT) value for tumors serves as a predictive marker in patients with advanced gastric cancer (aGC) who have undergone chemotherapy with vascular epithelial growth factor receptor 2 inhibitor (ramucirumab).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.

Computed tomography where there is continuous X-ray exposure to the patient while being transported in a spiral or helical pattern through the beam of irradiation. This provides improved three-dimensional contrast and spatial resolution compared to conventional computed tomography, where data is obtained and computed from individual sequential exposures.

Computed tomography modalities which use a cone or pyramid-shaped beam of radiation.

Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.

Tomography using radioactive emissions from injected RADIONUCLIDES and computer ALGORITHMS to reconstruct an image.
