BACKGROUND Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the prostate is considered to be the most precise noninvasive staging modality for localized prostate cancer. Multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) dynamic sequences have recently been shown to further increase the accuracy of staging relative to morphological imaging alone. Correct radiological staging, particularly the(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of varying microbubble (MB) and DNA doses on the overall and comparative efficiencies of ultrasound (US)-mediated gene delivery (UMGD) to murine hindlimb skeletal muscle using cationic versus neutral MBs. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cationic and control neutral MBs were characterized for size, charge, plasmid DNA binding, and(More)
Brain metastases from non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are associated with a poor prognosis. In selected cases, surgical resection of brain metastases may be indicated, but the identification of patients suitable for surgery remains difficult. We collected data on patient and tumour characteristics known or suspected to be associated with survival by(More)
BACKGROUND Consensus-based approaches provide an alternative to evidence-based decision making, especially in situations where high-level evidence is limited. Our aim was to demonstrate a novel source of information, objective consensus based on recommendations in decision tree format from multiple sources. METHODS Based on nine sample recommendations in(More)
