The adenosine triphosphate-based chemotherapy response assay (ATP-CRA) is a chemosensitivity test that offers the potential of selecting cancer treatments based on the responsiveness of individual tumors. We report a case of 47-yr-old male, presented with sigmoid colon cancer with multiple liver and peritoneal metastases, in which there was a complete… (More)
A coherent OFDR model that enables to extend the dynamic range is proposed. π/2 phase shifting technique is involved in the proposed system in order to obtain complex interference signal. The obtained complex signal is processed to remove DC and mirror peaks in the frequency domain. The simulated results show the enhancement of dynamic range.
BACKGROUND An objective method for determining the location of the cancer with respect to peritoneal reflection would be helpful to decide the treatment modality for rectal cancer. This study was designed to evaluate the accuracy and usefulness of rectal MRI to determine spatial relations between the peritoneal reflection and rectal cancer and to compare… (More)
