The study aimed to investigate the function of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) in diagnosing of autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) and whole-body evaluation. Seven AIP patients who underwent 18F-FDG PET/CT systemic examination in our hospital from August 2010 to March 2012 were analyzed retrospectively.(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was designed to validate the therapeutic effectiveness of CT-guided percutaneous ethanol injection of the thymus for the treatment of myasthenia gravis. SUBJECTS AND METHODS The subjects were 45 patients with myasthenia gravis. The diagnosis was determined by the patients' histories, physical findings, neostigmine tests, and(More)
To investigate the multi-modality imaging presentation of the pancreatic retention cyst (PRC) with pathologic correlation. Imaging data including CT, MRI, endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) and EUS guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA), and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in fifteen patients (five males and ten females; mean age, 44.5(More)
The incidence of small (≤2 cm), non-functioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NF-pNETs) increased in the last decades. Before making appropriate strategy for patients with NF-pNETs ≤2 cm, pathological confirmation is vital. Incidentally diagnosed, sporadic small NF-pNETs may bring aggressive behavior and poor prognosis, such as extrapancreatic(More)
Pancreatic cancer is a highly malignant disease with a 5-year survival rate <5% mainly due to lack of early diagnosis and effective therapy. In an effort to improve the early diagnostic rate of pancreatic cancer, a nanoprobe Fe3O4@SiO2 modified with anti-mesothelin antibody (A-MFS) was prepared to target cells and tumor tissues highly expressing mesothelin(More)
OBJECTIVE Develop a swine model of secondary infection in severe acute pancreatitis (SAP). METHODS Twenty-seven female swine were divided into 3 groups (1-3). In the first experiment, a SAP model was developed by retrograde injection of sodium taurocholate and trypsin into the pancreatic duct. In the second experiment, the SAP model was used to develop a(More)
Chronic pancreatitis (CP) is a progressive inflammatory and fibrotic disease of the pancreas which encompasses a variety of clinical syndromes ranging from mild to life-threatening complications. Metabolomics has increasingly been applied to identify biomarkers for disease diagnosis with particular interest in diseases at an early stage. In this study, we(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the influence of region of interest (ROI) size on tumor apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) measurements in pancreatic cancer. METHODS The study population consisted of 64 patients with pathologically proved pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas (PDACs), who underwent preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations(More)
