UNLABELLED Peri-ictal SPECT provides unique information on the dynamic changes in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) that occur during seizure evolution and, thus, could be useful in clarifying the poorly understood interplay of the interictal and ictal states in human focal epilepsy. The regional hyperperfusion observed on ictal SPECT is generally(More)
Induction chemotherapy followed by primary radiotherapy in responders is considered an alternative to surgery for advanced cancer of the larynx and hypopharynx (LHC). Comparison of therapeutic approaches is challenging and must respect oncological and functional outcome as well as quality of life during and after treatment. One aspect of primary(More)
Surgical procedures and in particular laryngectomy can become a life-saving treatment for patients with laryngeal or hypopharyngeal cancer, but can result in permanent damage. Clinical observation suggests that patients vary considerably in their ways of dealing with this new situation and in their ability to cope. The aim of our interdisciplinary group was(More)
Except for neoplasms, in symptomatic patients with submandibular swellings, gaps of the mylohyoid muscle may be the cause of herniations of sublingual tissues, such as fat and/or the sublingual gland. In two patients with a submandibular swelling, MRI with standard sequences including contrast enhancement was performed to exclude a neoplastic lesion. In(More)
BACKGROUND Commonly used staging procedures often cannot predict the absence of lymphatic micro- metastases in squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the head and neck. Therefore in many cases an elective neck dissection (ND) is necessary. In the surgical therapy of melanoma or breast cancer the presence of metastases can be evaluated securely by identification(More)
