Salvage radiotherapy (SRT) represents the main treatment option for relapsing prostate cancer in patients after radical prostatectomy. Several open questions remain unanswered in terms of target volumes definition and delivered doses for SRT: the effective dose necessary to achieve biochemical control in the SRT setting may be different if the tumor(More)
Breast cancer is an international public health concern in which an optimal treatment plan requires a precise staging. Both MRI and PET imaging techniques have made significant progress in the last decades with constant improvements that made both modalities clinically relevant in several stages of breast cancer management and follow-up. On one hand,(More)
To evaluate the performance of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MR) for preoperative breast cancer staging. Preoperative PET/MR exams of 58 consecutive women with breast cancer were retrospectively reviewed. Histology and mean follow-up of 26 months served as gold standard. Four experienced readers(More)
We report the case of a 56-year-old male with bilateral total knee prostheses suffering from bilateral knee pain mainly on the right side and referred for bone scintigraphy. The medical history of the patient revealed an opening wedge high tibial osteotomy performed nine years earlier, with insertion of two blocks of ceramic made of hydroxyapatite and(More)
PURPOSE The aims of this study were to assess the intraindividual performance of F-fluorocholine (FCH) and C-acetate (ACE) PET studies for restaging of recurrent prostate cancer (PCa), to correlate PET findings with long-term clinical and imaging follow-up, and to evaluate the impact of PET results on patient management. METHODS Thirty-three PCa patients(More)
The goal of this study was to determine whether the presence of isolated tumoral cells (ITCs) in sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) after core needle biopsy (CNB) is related to the time interval between CNB and surgery and to histopathologic features of invasive breast cancer. Data from 633 consecutive patients with no micrometastasis or metastasis on both frozen(More)
Neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA) is a group of rare genetic neurological disorders characterized by iron deposits in the basal ganglia. Apart from the iron accumulation identified on MRI, the role of imaging modalities is limited [1]. Here we present the metabolic findings in a 45-year-old man with NBIA. After a 14year history of(More)
