PURPOSE To establish apparent diffusion coefficients (ADCs) of invasive cervical carcinoma compared with nontumor cervical epithelium and determine sensitivity and specificity of diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging used in conjunction with T2-weighted MR imaging to help detect invasive cervical carcinoma in patients with stage Ia and Ib1(More)
t(11;18)(q21;q21) is a specific chromosomal translocation associated with mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma. It fuses the amino terminal of the API2 gene to the carboxyl terminal of the MALT1 gene and generates a chimeric fusion product. Although the translocation is frequently detected in gastric and pulmonary MALT lymphoma, its incidence(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine whether histogram analysis of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values from diffusion-weighted MRI can be used to differentiate cervical tumors according to their histologic characteristics. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Sixty patients with International Federation of Gynecology stage I cervical cancer(More)
Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) is an uncommon, but aggressive nodal peripheral T-cell lymphoma. Little is known of its biology and its natural history has been poorly studied. We report the first comprehensive study on the natural history/histologic progression of AITL by reviewing consecutive biopsies in 31 cases. Immunostaining for CD3, CD20,(More)
Mature T-cell and T/NK-cell neoplasms are both uncommon and heterogeneous, among the broad category of non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Owing to the lack of specific genetic alterations in the vast majority, most currently defined entities show overlapping morphological and immunophenotypic features, and therefore pose a challenge to the diagnostic pathologist. In(More)
To compare sensitivity and specificity of endovaginal versus external-array coil T2-W and T2-W + DWI for detecting and staging small cervical tumours. Optimised endovaginal and external array coil MRI at 3.0-T was done prospectively in 48 consecutive patients with stage Ia/Ib1 cervical cancer. Sensitivity/specificity for detecting tumour and parametrial(More)
Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) is a systemic disease involving lymph nodes, spleen, and bone marrow. Although the histologic features have been well described, the diagnosis is often challenging, as there are no specific phenotypic or molecular markers available. This study shows that the neoplastic cells of AITL can be identified by aberrant(More)
Assessment of empirical diffusion-weighted MRI (DW-MRI) models in cervical tumours to investigate whether fitted parameters distinguish between types and grades of tumours. Forty-two patients (24 squamous cell carcinomas, 14 well/moderately differentiated, 10 poorly differentiated; 15 adenocarcinomas, 13 well/moderately differentiated, two poorly(More)
The germinal center T-helper cell has been proposed as the cell of origin for angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma. Our recent report of expression of CXCL13, a chemokine critical for germinal center formation and one of the most highly upregulated genes in the germinal center T-helper cell subset, in the majority of angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma cases,(More)
