    Testicular cancer is a rare tumour with the potential for cure at diagnosis. It is important, however, to identify those patients with metastases at presentation so as to ensure that the optimum treatment strategy is employed. Many criteria have been used to try to place patients into high- or...

    Objective: Yttrium-90 radioembolisation (Y90-RE) is recommended for unresectable, chemorefractory liver-dominant disease; however, the incidence of extrahepatic disease (EHD) is high. FDG-PET may have additional value to CT in demonstrating EHD. Our aim was to evaluate the added diagnostic value...

    Bone marrow biopsy (BMB) is currently the standard method to evaluate marrow involvement in malignant lymphomas. However, there exist a number of pitfalls in this technique that can have important implications for initial staging, prognostification, and treatment of the disease. The present...

    The need for early detection of AD becomes critical as disease-modifying agents near the marketplace. Here, we present results from a study focused on improvement in detection of metabolic deficits related to neurodegenerative changes consistent with possible early AD with statistical evaluation...

    Background Hepatic hydrothorax is defined as a significant pleural effusion (usually greater than 500 ml) in a cirrhotic patient, without an underlying pulmonary or cardiac disease. The incidence of hepatic hydrothorax varies from 0.4% to 10% according to different reports, and it occurs much...

    The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of MRI and 18FDG-PET in bone marrow infiltration of the spine due to metastases of solid tumours and lymphoma in cancer patients. In 35 cancer patients (solid tumours n = 26, lymphoma n = 9) MRI of the spine and 18FDG-PET were reviewed...

    Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of [18F]fluorodeoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) on the primary staging of patients with small-cell lung cancer (SCLC). Methods: FDG-PET was performed in 120 consecutive patients with SCLC during primary staging....
