RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as PET scan and CT scan, may help doctors determine the extent of cancer and predict a patient's response to treatment and help plan the best treatme...
The purpose of this study is to assess new low radiation dose techniques for clinical PET/CT scans through intra-individual comparison between a clinical, standard dose scan and a low-dose...
RATIONALE: Radiofrequency ablation uses a high-frequency, electric current to kill tumor cells. Diagnostic procedures, such as PET scan and CT scan, may help doctors measure the patient's ...
RATIONALE: Imaging procedures, such as positron emission tomography (PET) scan and CT scan, may help doctors plan radiation therapy for patients with non-small cell lung cancer. PURPOSE: ...
The purpose of this study is to to find out if the MRI and PET scans can truly stage patients with bladder cancer. Both scans use newer ways to find out if your disease has grown beyond th...
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...
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 ...
CT scan is a life-saving medical diagnostic tool, entailing higher levels of ionising radiation exposure than conventional radiography, which may result in an increase in cancer risk, particularly in ...
As a disease, cancer can affect an individual's well-being, from physical to psychological, social, and even spiritual wellness. The cancer survivor population must navigate a complex, constantly evol...
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 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.
Autosomal dominant HEREDITARY CANCER SYNDROME in which a mutation most often in either BRCA1 or BRCA2 is associated with a significantly increased risk for breast and ovarian cancers.
