The purpose of this study is to determine whether F18 fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron-emission tomography scan (PET scan) is useful for the therapy strategy of hepatosplenic candidiasis.
This is a prospective multicenter study of patients diagnosed with a medium to giant incisional hernia (transverse defect >7 cm). Patients referred to the surgical outpatient clinic are invited to participate in the study. As a standard, all patients who are examined for incisional hernia undergo CT scan according to a hernia protocol, before planning of surgical repair (baseline scan). After this CT scan, patients are seen in the out-patient clinic once again and either treate...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if using the PEMFlex Solo II, a high-resolution camera for PET scan imaging, on an area of the body that has, or is suspected to have cancer will give researchers the same or better information about the disease compared to the images taken with a routine PET/CT. Researchers will compare the images taken using the PEMFlex Solo II to the images taken during your scheduled routine PET/CT scan, as well as any additional routine...
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: This clinical trial is studying how well a combined PET scan and CT scan works compared to a CT scan alone in planning radiation therapy for patients with stage II or stage III non-small cell lung cancer.
The research focuses on Cauda Equina Syndrome (CES) which describes damage to the nerves in the lower back which supply bladder, bowels, sexual function and the legs usually from slipped discs in the spine. CES is as common as multiple sclerosis and is diagnosed using an MRI scan of the spine, 'scan positive' CES. However, about 50% of people presenting with the symptoms of CES have MRI scans which do not explain their symptoms, 'scan negative' patients. The BLB study will be ...
SCARCE is a non-comparative randomized, 2:1 phase II study. The purpose of this study is to assess the progression-free survival rate at 12 months. (evaluation according with RECISTv1.1 criteria). For all patients, CT scan will be planned at baseline, and every 8 weeks until 12 months from randomization (or disease progression), and every 12 weeks thereafter. PET scan will be performed at baseline, at the end of mDCF treatment, and at 12 months after randomization (in a...
This study is a randomized controlled trial to determine whether i-scan can improve the detection of sessile serrated adenomas/polyps.
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 the bladder. The radioactive tracer used for the PET scan is called C-11 Acetate. We want to see if PET scan will be able to take a picture of the inside of your body that is better than other scans such as the CT scan and MRI. Therefore, the findings of the PET scan will be compared with other ...
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. This however has never been validated on a histological level. In this study patients with non small cell lung cancer and atelectasis who are eligible for surgery undergo a CT-scan and a PET-scan prior to surgery. The resection specimen will be compared to the preoperative imaging.
This study aims to determine whether a test, called the PET scan, may be useful in determining if there are additional locations of cancer not otherwise detectable by other tests. The PET scan is a nuclear medicine imaging study that measures how much radioactive sugar is used by your tumor. The study will compare pictures of the cancer from the PET scan to other x-ray exams, such as a CT scan, as well as to what your doctors find at the time of surgery. If the study res...
This study is designed to evaluate the Sentinel Breast Scan II® as well as the analysis of data by Therma-Scan.
This prospective study aims to 1. compare the detection rates among sonography, MIBI scan and 18F-FCH PET for localization of the parathyroid lesions including adenoma, hyperplasia or carcinoma; evaluate the usefulness of 18F-FCH PET as a second-line tracer in MIBI scan negative patients.
In the proposed study, our aim is to evaluate the uptake of 68Gallium-citrate in patients with failed joint prosthesis and compare it with that of conventional 18fluorine-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scan. We will perform PET/CT scan with 68Gallium citrate and 18F-FDG in subjects with failed hip or knee prosthesis. Both 68Gallium-citrate and 18F-FDG scans, done within 24-48 hours from each other, will be performed within...
RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as positron emission tomography (PET) scan and computated tomography (CT) scan, may help doctors predict a patient's response to treatment and may help plan the best treatment. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin and ifosfamide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving chemotherapy before surgery may make the tumor smaller and reduce the amou...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn how often using a positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) scan in addition to a standard computed tomography (CT) scan will change the surgical plan in patients with metastatic melanoma.
The purpose of the study is to see how measurements of tumor differences vary with slight changes in CT scan parameters. Reproducible radiomic features can be extracted for abdominal tumors, and specifically colorectal liver metastases, imaged with clinical CT scanners even in the setting of variable scan parameters and variable contrast timing. Participants will be consented to undergo an additional CT of their abdomen.
Explore association between intensity of C11-AMT PET at baseline, as measured by mean standardized uptake value (SUVmax at each lesion), total tumor metabolic volume, measurement of intra-tumoral and inter-lesional heterogeneity), with objective response rate (ORR) at 12 weeks (as defined via RECIST1.1) to pembrolizumab in patients with treatment-naïve metastatic melanoma.
This research protocol makes pictures of brain tumors. The pictures are made with a positron emission tomography (PET) scanner. PET scans use radioactivity to "see" cancer cells. We are using a new kind of PET scan. The new PET scan is called [18F]-FACBC PET. We will compare this to the standard PET scan. The standard PET scan is called [11C]-methionine PET. We expect these pictures will give us information about your tumor. We also hope to collect information about the amount...
