The main purpose of this study is to see if Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging with a radioactive tracer called 18F-ISO-1 can accurately identify how quickly cancer cells are growing or dividing. A second purpose for this study is to determine, by taking pictures, what tissues and organs of the body take up 18F-ISO-1 naturally and to determine how that uptake changes over time.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic

Past studies indicate delays in adoption of consensus-based guideline updates. In June 2016, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network changed its guidelines from routine testing to omission of orderi...
National guidelines for preoperative laboratory testing are based on limited, low-quality evidence. The role of age as a risk factor for testing is unclear. We sought to compare the prevalence of abno...
Breast cancer is a major health problem in Egypt. Her-2/Neu gene is routinely assessed for all breast cancer patients primarily by immunohistochemistry. At National Cancer Institute (NCI), Cairo Unive...
A significant proportion of prostate cancer diagnoses may be associated with a strong hereditary component. Men who have multiple single-gene polymorphisms and a family history of prostate cancer have...
In detection, treatment, and follow-up, male breast cancer has historically lagged behind female breast cancer. On the whole, breast cancer is less common among men than among women, limiting utility ...
Laboratory testing and diagnostic imaging services offered to consumers outside of the patient-physician relationship.
The testing of materials and devices, especially those used for PROSTHESES AND IMPLANTS; SUTURES; TISSUE ADHESIVES; etc., for hardness, strength, durability, safety, efficacy, and biocompatibility.
Assessments aimed at determining agreement in diagnostic test results among laboratories. Identical survey samples are distributed to participating laboratories, with results stratified according to testing methodologies.
Detection of or testing for certain ALLELES, mutations, genotypes, or karyotypes that are associated with genetic traits, heritable diseases, or with a predisposition to a disease, or that may lead to the disease in descendants. It includes prenatal genetic testing.
Laboratory and other services provided to patients at the bedside. These include diagnostic and laboratory testing using automated information entry.
