BACKGROUND We have previously developed (11)C-erlotinib as a new positron emission tomography (PET) tracer and shown that it accumulates in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-positive lung cancer xenografts in mice. Here, we present a study in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) investigating the feasibility of (11)C-erlotinib PET as a(More)
Pulmonary nodules are of high clinical importance, given they may prove to be an early manifestation of lung cancer. Pulmonary nodules are small, focal, radiographic opacities that may be solitary or multiple. A solitary pulmonary nodule is a single, small (<-30 mm in diameter) opacity. Larger opacities are called masses and are often malignant. As imaging(More)
BACKGROUND Malignant ascites is a pathological condition caused by intra- or extra-abdominal disseminated cancer. The object of treatment is palliation. In search of an effective and minimally invasive palliative treatment of malignant ascites placement of a permanent intra peritoneal catheter has been suggested. PURPOSE To evaluate our experiences with(More)
BACKGROUND After the diagnosis Non-Small-Cell Lung Carcinoma (NSCLC) has been established, consideration must turn toward the stage of disease, because this will impact directly on management and prognosis. Staging is used to predict survival and to guide the patient toward the most appropriate treatment regimen or clinical trial. Distinguishing malignant(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the in vivo antiproliferative effect of interferon alpha (IFN-alpha) in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC). Core needle biopsies of metastatic and/or the primary kidney cancer were obtained before interleukin-2 (IL-2)- and IFN-alpha-based immunotherapy in 34 patients and repeated after 5(More)
Cervical myelography (CM) was taken from 14 cases with cervical root-compression symptoms. Prior to myelography, there was complete cranial CT registration to assess the subarachnoid, intraventricular, subcortical and periventricular densities. Control scans at 3,6,24 and 48 h following myelography disclosed intracranial contrast medium at level of basal(More)
Cervical myelography was performed in fourteen patients under suspicion of cervical disc herniation. Prior to myelography, complete cranial-CT registration of the density in the subarachnoid space, intraventricularly, subcorticaly and periventriculary was performed. Control scans 3, 6, 24 and 48 hours following myelography disclosed intracranial contrast(More)
