BACKGROUND Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) and MRI fusion targeted biopsy (FTB) detect significant prostate cancer (sPCa) more accurately than conventional biopsies alone. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the detection accuracy of mpMRI and FTB on radical prostatectomy (RP) specimen. DESIGN, SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS From a cohort of 755 men who(More)
Das Prostatakarzinom (PCa) ist die häufigste Krebserkrankung bei Männern in Industrieländern. Zu Verbesserung der PCa-Diagnostik wurde in den letzten Jahren 68Ga-PSMA-11 als neuer PET-Tracer (Positronen-Emissions-Tomographie) entwickelt. 68Ga-PSMA-11 bindet hochspezifisch an das prostataspezifische Membranantigen (PSMA), welches bei dem überwiegenden Teil(More)
INTRODUCTION Laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) remains challenging in endophytic and complex kidney tumors as the clear understanding of tumor location and spreading depends on a precise analysis of available imaging. The purpose of this study was to investigate navigated kidney surgery using intraoperative cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) images(More)
Beef cattle from 3 independent studies conducted in the Texas Panhandle (Exp. 1: n = 3,906 and Exp. 2: n = 4,000) and southern Idaho (Exp. 3; n = 542) were used to investigate the association of pro-melanin concentrating hormone (PMCH) genotype with beef carcass quality and yield attributes. Tissue samples were collected from each animal to determine which(More)
The objective of this study was to quantify the effects of zilpaterol hydrochloride (ZH) on feeding performance and fabrication yield of concentrate-finished cull cows. Three hundred twenty commercial cull cows (2 to 10 yr old) were obtained from ranches in Missouri and South Dakota and assigned to 1 of 2 treatments: 1) a control diet containing no ZH and(More)
OBJECTIVE This study is a prospective evaluation of a volume-based, computer-assisted method for transperineal optimized prostate (TOP) biopsy. The TOP algorithm automates core planning for systematic prostate biopsies using the 3-dimensional organ contour and an alterable volume for tumors to be excluded. SUBJECTS AND METHODS MRI-transrectal ultrasound(More)
PURPOSE To show the benefit of three-dimensional (3D) reconstructions of preoperative imaging for surgical performance. METHODS A laparoscopic training environment with 15 hidden lymph nodes was designed. Three of them were marked with radiographic contrast agent and were only distinguishable from unmarked nodes via CT imaging. Thirty-six surgeons were(More)
Das Nierenzellkarzinom mit supradiaphragmalem Cavathrombus ist eine seltene Tumorentität. Die Operation mittels Nephrektomie und Thrombektomie gilt als Therapiestandard. Präoperativ ist mittels Magnetresonanztomographie und transösophagealer Echokardiographie das Ausmaß des Thrombus zu evaluieren. Die Operationsplanung und -durchführung sollte in(More)
In recent years, PSMA-targeting PET tracers such as 68Ga-PSMA-11 have shown promising results, thus contributing to a better management of prostate cancer patients. At the present time, 68Ga-PSMA-11 is most frequently used for diagnostic evaluation in the setting of biochemical recurrence of prostate cancer. In this context, the 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET/CT delivers(More)
