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: ...
CT-PET image fusion has the potential to differentiate 'tumor' from 'atelectasis' much better than the CT-scan in patients with non-small cell lung cancer who also have atelectasis. ...
Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer in the USA. Early stage lung cancer is asymptomatic. Most patients with lung cancer are usually symptomatic at diagnosis and already have advanc...
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 ...
This is a prospective study of ventilation image comparison for lung functional information incorporation in thoracic cancer treatment planning.
The present study aimed to evaluate the application of gemstone spectral imaging (GSI) for multi-parameter quantitative measurement in lung cancer.The study retrospectively enrolled 30 patients with l...
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 is the third metastatic site after liver and lungs. Bone metastases occur in one out of three lung cancers and are usually of osteolytic aspect. Osteolytic bone metastases are responsible of long...
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 ...
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.
The production of an image obtained by cameras that detect the radioactive emissions of an injected radionuclide as it has distributed differentially throughout tissues in the body. The image obtained from a moving detector is called a scan, while the image obtained from a stationary camera device is called a scintiphotograph.
