Positron Emission Tomography Scan and CT Scan in Planning Radiation Therapy for Patients With Stage II or Stage III Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

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: ...

Validation of Coregistered CT-PET Imaging in Determining Tumor Volume and Atelectasis in Patients With Operable Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer and Tumor Associated Atelectasis

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 Screening Study With Low-dose CT Scan and Blood Biomarker

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...

PET Scan and CT Scan in Evaluating Response in Patients Undergoing Radiofrequency Ablation for Lung Metastases

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 ...

Pilot Study of Regional Lung Ventilation

This is a prospective study of ventilation image comparison for lung functional information incorporation in thoracic cancer treatment planning.

A 51-Year-Old Woman With an Increasing Chest Wall Mass Years After Resection of an Early Stage Lung Cancer.

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...

Gemstone spectral imaging in lung cancer: A preliminary study.

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...

What is the best timing of repeated CT scan in mild head trauma with an initial positive CT scan?

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 metastases from lung cancer: a paradigm for multidisciplinary onco-rheumatology management.

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...

To Scan or Not to Scan: Horses and Zebras.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
