Emission computed tomography is a new, useful imaging technique; when a rotating gamma camera capable of such imaging is used multiple adjacent transverse sections may be obtained simultaneously, from which coronal and sagittal sections may be computed. The technique was used in a man undergoing urological investigation in whom excretion urography indicated… (More)
The use of chemotherapy in the treatment of prostate cancer is a relatively recent development, with no published data on the patterns of care in the UK. We carried out a population-based study to assess variation in the use of prostate cancer chemotherapy over time in a UK cancer network.
Though modern chemotherapy regimens cure over 80% of children with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL), the outcome of relapsed disease remains suboptimal. Current curative strategies for relapsed patients are based on high dose cytotoxic therapy often followed by an allogeneic stem cell transplant. Drug-related toxicities limits the intensification of… (More)
A multitude of skin lesions that are seen following organ transplantation have been presented. Many of them, such as opportunistic infections, are related to the immunosuppressive agents used to prevent graft rejection and graft-versus-host disease. Corticosteroids and cyclosporine commonly produce other skin changes as well. A high index of suspicion for… (More)

The clinical utility of radionuclide emission tomography of the kidney in comparison with conventional gamma-camera imaging has been assessed from scans of 60 patients suspected of having space-occupying lesions of the kidney. Nineteen patients had renal tumour, 17 had cysts and seven had renal pseudotumours; the remainder had no lesion. Objective trials… (More)
