OBJECTIVE To examine the effectiveness of pH analysis of fetal scalp blood compared with lactate analysis in identifying hypoxia in labour to prevent acidaemia at birth. DESIGN Randomised controlled multicentre trial. SETTING Labour wards. PARTICIPANTS Women with a singleton pregnancy, cephalic presentation, gestational age >or=34 weeks, and clinical(More)
PURPOSE The purposes of this study were to evaluate the feasibility of simultaneous 18F choline positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the prostate and to present the first clinical results of the method. MATERIALS AND METHODS From March 2012 to October 2012, a total of 15 consecutive patients were examined with(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the positron emission tomography (PET) component of [18F]choline PET/MRI and compare it with the PET component of [18F]choline PET/CT in patients with histologically proven prostate cancer and suspected recurrent prostate cancer. Thirty-six patients were examined with simultaneous [18F]choline PET/MRI following combined(More)
BACKGROUND Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) is routinely used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of prostate cancer. However, the routine use of b values higher than 1000 s/mm(2) is not clear up to present. Moreover, the complex diffusion behavior of malignant and benign prostate tissues hampers precise predictions of contrast in DWI images and apparent(More)
OBJECTIVE To quantitatively analyze bone metastases from prostate cancer and correlate the apparent diffusion coefficients (ADCs) and standardized uptake values (SUVs). METHODS Fifty-five patients with biopsy-proven prostate cancer or suspected recurrent prostate cancer were examined with simultaneous [18F] choline Positron emission tomography (PET)/MRI(More)
