RATIONALE: New diagnostic procedures, such as C-11 choline PET-CT scan, may be effective in finding cancer that has spread to the bone and lymph nodes in patients with prostate cancer. PU...
The purpose of this study is to see if a new diagnostic research agent named 68Ga-RM2 can show prostate cancer on a PET/CT scan. 68Ga-RM2 stands for Galium-68 labeled DOTA-4-amino-1-carbox...
The investigators are attempting to determine if a new form of imaging called 18F-DCFPyL PET/CT is helpful to physicians in deciding how to manage suspected prostate cancer recurrence. Thi...
The purpose of this study is to use a new imaging drug called 11C-choline that is used with a PET/CT scan to see prostate cancer when it cannot be seen well on other scans, such as bone sc...
The purpose of this study is to see if a new diagnostic research agent named 68Ga-HBED-CC-PSMA can show prostate cancer on a PET/CT scan that cannot be seen on other standard imaging even ...
A 76-year-old man with castration-resistant prostate cancer and widespread skeletal metastases underwent 2 cycles of Lu-prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) 617 therapy in our department. Whole-b...
A 76-year-old man with metastatic prostate cancer and back pain was referred for palliative radiotherapy. Staging F-fluorocholine PET/CT scan revealed fluorocholine-avid prostate mass, extensive lymph...
Mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) is among the most common causes of A&E admission. Current Guidelines have clearly evidenced risk factors and neurological signs that should suggest a head CT scan at...
Bone scintigraphy is key in imaging skeletal metastases in newly diagnosed prostate cancer. Unfortunately, a notable proportion of scans are not readily classified as positive or negative but deemed i...
A 51-year-old woman was found to have a new 14 × 6 mm soft tissue mass under the right serratus muscle on a CT scan of the chest performed for routine surveillance due to her history of stage I lun...
The use of combination of imaging techniques or platforms (e.g., MRI SCAN and PET SCAN) encompassing aspects of anatomical, functional, or molecular imaging methods.
A method of differentiating individuals based on the analysis of qualitative or quantitative biological traits or patterns. This process which has applications in forensics and identity theft prevention includes DNA profiles or DNA fingerprints, hand fingerprints, automated facial recognition, iris scan, hand geometry, retinal scan, vascular patterns, automated voice pattern recognition, and ultrasound of fingers.
A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
A method of producing a high-quality scan by digitizing and subtracting the images produced by high- and low-energy x-rays.
Intraoperative computer-assisted 3D navigation and guidance system generally used in neurosurgery for tracking surgical tools and localize them with respect to the patient's 3D anatomy. The pre-operative diagnostic scan is used as a reference and is transferred onto the operative field during surgery.
