Preserving functional lung using perfusion imaging and intensity-modulated radiation therapy for advanced-stage non-small cell lung cancer.
Function-guided IMRT planning appears to be effective in preserving functional lung in locally advanced-stage NSCLC patients. Expand
The role of 18F-FDG PET in staging and early prediction of response to therapy of recurrent gastrointestinal stromal tumors.
It is suggested that (18)F-FDG PET is superior to CT in predicting early response to therapy in recurrent or metastatic GIST patients and is a better guide for imatinib mesylate therapy. Expand
Does colon cancer ever metastasize to bone first? a temporal analysis of colorectal cancer progression
It is suggested that resistant metastasis to the lungs predicts potential disease progression to bone in the colorectal cancer population better than liver metastasis does. Expand
Prospective trial of targeted radioimmunotherapy with Y-90 ibritumomab tiuxetan (Zevalin) for front-line treatment of early-stage extranodal indolent ocular adnexal lymphoma.
Rituximab followed by (90)Y ibritumomab tiuxetan is an effective and safe front-line treatment for early-stage extranodal indolent B-cell lymphoma of the ocular adnexa. Expand
The value of 99mTc-sestamibi SPECT/CT over conventional SPECT in the evaluation of parathyroid adenomas or hyperplasia.
SPECT/CT has no significant clinical value additional to that of conventional SPECT for parathyroid imaging except in locating ectopic parathyoid glands. Expand
Comparison of bone and 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose positron emission tomography in the evaluation of bony metastases in lung cancer.
UNLABELLED Positron emission tomography (PET) is a proven accurate modality used for the detection of active malignant tumors. The performance of PET in detecting bony metastases, however, has notExpand
Usefulness of preoperative lymphoscintigraphy in patients who undergo radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy for cervical cancer.
Preoperative lymphoscintigraphy adds little value over intraoperative lymphatic mapping for sentinel lymph node identification during radical hysterectomy, and Concordance between the 2 methods was poor. Expand
Lymphatic mapping and sentinel lymph node detection in women with vaginal cancer.
In women with vaginal cancer, lymphatic drainage from the primary lesion does not always follow the lymphatic channels that would have been predicted anatomically, and the addition of lymphoscintigraphy to the pretreatment evaluation for women with vagina cancer may significantly improve comprehensive treatment planning.

Lung Perfusion Imaging Can Risk Stratify Lung Cancer Patients for the Development of Pulmonary Complications after Chemoradiation
LPS using lung perfusion imaging is useful for predicting possible pulmonary complications after CRT or RT in lung cancer patients, and there were no significant differences between the mean lung radiation dose, the volume of lung irradiated or the percentage of lung receiving greater than 20 Gy between the two groups. Expand
A Novel Nomenclature to Classify Parathyroid Adenomas
A reproducible nomenclature that provides a precise means of communicating the most frequently encountered parathyroid adenoma locations is developed and may be beneficial for surgical planning as well as operative and pathology reporting. Expand
