The aim of this study was to investigate risk factors for recurrence in patients with lung adenocarcinoma (LAD) who were pathologically N0 (pN0) after curative surgical resection. A total of 102 LAD patients (M/F = 55/47, mean age, 62.6 ± 9.4 years) diagnosed as pN0 after curative surgery were included in this study. Clinical, biochemical, radiologic, and(More)
UNLABELLED This study assessed the maximum standardized uptake value of metastatic axillary lymph nodes in patients with invasive ductal breast cancer (IDC) to determine the pretreatment prognostic value of (18)F-FDG PET/CT for disease-free survival (DFS). METHODS Sixty-five female IDC patients who had undergone pretreatment (18)F-FDG PET/CT and had(More)
PURPOSE To determine the prognostic implications of pretreatment F-18 FDG PET/CT in patients with invasive ductal breast cancer (IDC), we evaluated the relationship between FDG uptake of the primary tumor and known prognostic parameters of breast cancer. Prognostic significance of tumoral FDG uptake for the prediction of progression-free survival (PFS) was(More)
This study assessed whether preoperative maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) of metastatic lymph nodes (LNs) measured by F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (F-FDG PET/CT) could improve the prediction of prognosis in gastric cancer.One hundred fifty-one patients with gastric cancer and pathologically confirmed(More)
We evaluated the prognostic value of pretreatment 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography with computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) in patients with Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC) stage 0 or A hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) who had received curative treatment or transarterial chemoembolization (TACE). Between 2009 and 2010, 317 patients(More)
UNLABELLED This study aimed to assess the prognostic value of (18)F-FDG uptake in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients who had transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) or concurrent intraarterial chemotherapy with external-beam radiotherapy (CCRT) and to compare the prognosis between patients treated with TACE and those with CCRT according to (18)F-FDG(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate predictability of occult lymph node metastasis (OLM) using metabolic parameters on pretreatment 18F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET)/CT in squamous cell non-small cell lung carcinoma (SC-NSCLC) patients who were clinically node negative (cN0) before surgery. A total of 63 cN0 SC-NSCLC(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was performed to evaluate the prognostic relevance of PET parameters measured by (18)F-FDG PET/CT in patients with invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast (IDC) who had distant metastasis at the time of initial diagnosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty women with IDC who had distant metastasis at the time of initial diagnosis and who(More)
Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC) stage C hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) consists of a heterogeneous group of patients with a wide range of survival times, requiring further prognostic stratification to facilitate treatment allocation. We evaluated the prognostic value of 18F-FDG uptake on PET/CT at the time of presentation in patients with BCLC stage C(More)
Facial muscle is a very rare site for distant metastasis of renal cell carcinoma (RCC). We present a 71-year-old man with isolated facial muscle metastasis 12 years after right nephrectomy for RCC. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a soft-tissue mass in the masticator space. F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography showed a(More)
