Predictive Role of Computed Tomography Texture Analysis in Patients with Metastatic Urothelial Cancer Treated with Programmed Death-1 and Programmed Death-ligand 1 Inhibitors.

Summary of "Predictive Role of Computed Tomography Texture Analysis in Patients with Metastatic Urothelial Cancer Treated with Programmed Death-1 and Programmed Death-ligand 1 Inhibitors."

Reliable biomarkers to predict the response of metastatic urothelial cancer (mUC) to programmed death-1 and programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-1/PD-L1) inhibitors are being investigated. Texture analysis represents tumor heterogeneity and may serve as a predictor of response in mUC.

Metastatic melanoma: pretreatment contrast-enhanced CT texture parameters as predictive biomarkers of survival in patients treated with pembrolizumab.

To determine whether texture analysis features on pretreatment contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) images can predict overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) in patients with ...

Computed tomography versus plain radiography assessment of acetabular fracture reduction is more predictive for native hip survivorship.

Computed tomography (CT) is more accurate than plain pelvic radiography (PXR) for evaluating acetabular fracture reduction. As yet unknown is whether CT-based assessment is more predictive for clinica...

Texture features of colorectal liver metastases on pretreatment contrast-enhanced CT may predict response and prognosis in patients treated with bevacizumab-containing chemotherapy: a pilot study including comparison with standard chemotherapy.

Bevacizumab added to chemotherapy can improve survival in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer, but no predictive factors of efficacy are available in clinical practice. The aim of this study is...

A Comparative Texture Analysis Based on NECT and CECT Images to Differentiate Lung Adenocarcinoma from Squamous Cell Carcinoma.

The purpose of the study was to compare the texture based discriminative performances between non-contrast enhanced computed tomography (NECT) and contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) images i...

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 chemotherap...

Predictive factors of osteoarthritis progression are not yet well understood. However, a growing role attaches importance to the subchondral bone. The aim of the present project is to dete...

Visualization of Anti-angiogenic Effects With Perfusion Computed Tomography (CTP)

The primary objective of this study is to investigate the anti-angiogenic effect of bevacizumab measured by CTP as a predictive marker for efficacy measured by progression-free survival (P...

Cone Beam Computed Tomography for Breast Imaging

The primary aim of this study is to investigate the use of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) for breast imaging in the diagnostic setting by providing a compelling body of evidence inco...

PET/CT and SPECT/CT Imaging in Improving Radiation Therapy Treatment in Patients With Stage IIB-IIIB Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

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.
