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...
We present an implementation of dispersion-scan based on self-diffraction (SD d-scan) and apply it to the measurement of over octave-spanning sub-4-fs pulses. The results are compared with second-harm...
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...
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...
We present a patient with a history of lung cancer and displaying the typical pattern of hypertrophic osteoarthropathy on bone scan. We also discuss other etiologies, pathophysiology and management of...
There are computerized tomography (CT) scanners available commercially for imaging small objects and they are often categorized as mini-CT X-ray machines. One major limitation of these machines is the...
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.
