OBJECTIVES The first consensus report that had been presented by the European Germ Cell Cancer Consensus Group (EGCCCG) in 2004 has found widespread approval by many colleagues throughout the world. In November 2006, the group met a second time under the auspices of the Department of Urology of the Amsterdam Medical Center, The Netherlands. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) may have a role in detecting clinically significant prostate cancer in men with raised serum prostate-specific antigen levels. Variations in technique and the interpretation of images have contributed to inconsistency in its reported performance characteristics. OBJECTIVE Our aim was to make(More)
INTRODUCTION Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides superior diagnostic accuracy over computed tomography (CT) in oropharyngeal tumours. Precise delineation of the gross tumour volume (GTV) is mandatory in radiotherapy planning when a GTV boost is required. CT volume definition in this regard is poor. We studied the feasibility of using flexible surface(More)
Interest in integrating MRI into the prostate (CaP) cancer diagnostic pathway seems to be gaining ground [1]. Multiparametric (mp)MRI combines diffusion-weighted, dynamic contrast enhanced sequences or MR spectroscopy with conventional T2-weighted sequences. This has resulted in accuracy rates for the detection of clinically important CaP that compare(More)
PURPOSE To compare revised Choi criteria that incorporate concurrent size and attenuation changes at early follow-up imaging with Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors ( RECIST Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors ) 1.1 and original Choi criteria in stratification of clinical outcomes in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma ( mRCC(More)
PURPOSE Hypoxia in patients with head-and-neck cancer (HNC) is well established and known to cause radiation resistance and treatment failure in the management of HNC. This study examines the role of parameters derived from dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) and perfusion computed tomography (CT) as surrogate markers of(More)
Sarcomas of the prostate are rare tumours. Their clinicopathologic features are well described, however, the imaging features of these tumours have rarely been documented. The purpose of this article is to illustrate the imaging findings of prostate sarcomas, with an emphasis on their appearance on magnetic resonance imaging and to identify features that(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the surgical anatomy knowledge of gynaecological oncology (GO) trainees and to evaluate the impact of a cadaveric dissection course on postgraduate surgical training. METHODS An intensive 3-day cadaveric dissection course with illustrated lectures and supervised dissection, with a multiple-choice questionnaire (MCQ) on surgical anatomy(More)
Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) is increasingly being used earlier in the prostate cancer diagnostic pathway in order to detect and localize disease. Its results can be used to help decide on the indication, type, and localization of a prostate biopsy for cancer diagnosis. In addition, mpMRI has the potential to contribute information on(More)
