To evaluate the diagnostic efficacy in differentiating metastatic from inflammatory perigastric lymph nodes (LN) in patients with gastric cancer by using CT perfusion imaging (CTPI).
This article was published in the following journal.

Combination laparoscopic lymph node (LN) dissection and endoscopic resection is a promising treatment for early gastric cancer. However, LN dissection could cause nerve injury and deterioration of mot...
The aim of this study was to develop a prediction model for the presence and location of lymph node metastasis (LNM) in early gastric cancer.
CT perfusion (CTP) is an imaging technique that can be used to evaluate the changes in the microcirculation of tumor tissues. Our study aimed to investigate the role of CTP in predicting mediastinal l...
To assess metastatic involvement of perigastric lymph nodes (PLN) in patients with T1 gastric cancer by using CT perfusion imaging (CTPI).
Accurate prediction of lymph node status is of crucial importance in the appropriate treatment planning for patients with early gastric cancer (EGC). Some studies have examined factors predicting lymp...
Early gastric cancer is defined as gastric cancer that only invades mucosal or submucosal layer. The 5-year survival rate of gastric cancer can exceed 90% due to appropriate treatment. The...
D2 gastrectomy is standard treatment of early gastric cancer in Japan but in other countries there is still some discord, especially in Europe and North America. Although the quantity of m...
The aim of this study is intending to provide the optimal procedures of lymph node sorting for pathological examination after curative surgery for gastric cancer, which can discriminate th...
The present study aims at investigating the feasibility, the detection rate and the negative predictive value of sentinel node in predicting the presence or absence of lymph node metastasi...
Breast cancer patients with ipsilateral supraclavicular lymph node metastasis are defined as Ⅲc stage (N3) according to the newly published 8th AJCC TNM staging system. No concret guide ...
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.
Surgical excision of one or more lymph nodes. Its most common use is in cancer surgery. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p966)
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.
