We have demonstrated that FMISO uptake is significantly higher in tumor tissue in the C6 intracerebral glioma rat model compared to normal brain, and that there is persisting hypoxia in gliomas independent of tumor size. FMISO uptake was observed homogeneously throughout viable glioma tissue in tumor sizes ranging from 2mm to almost 1cm. Quantitation of(More)

METHODS We retrospectively examined patients treated for oesophageal perforation in a university teaching(More)
Optimal interval between neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (CRT) and surgery is not elucidated for esophageal squamous carcinoma. The aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of this time interval on patient outcome. Patients treated with neoadjuvant CRT followed by surgery between 2002 and 2009 were analyzed. Patients were divided into two groups based on(More)
