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 ...
Ga-PSMA PET/CT is an imaging technique used in staging and detection of prostate cancer. However, enhanced uptake on Ga-PSMA PET/CT scan has also been ascribed to other malignant and benign lesions. W...
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...
Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET/CT scan for primary staging discovered increased Ga-PSMA uptake in a known anal fistula in a recently diagnosed high-risk prostate cancer patient. The ...
Value of computed tomography (CT) scan and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) in the diagnosis and treatment of esophageal cancer was investigated. Seventy-eight patients with esophageal cancer treated ...
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.
