PURPOSE To prevent overtreatment, it is very important to diagnose the precise distribution and characteristics of all cancer lesions, including small daughter tumors. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (T2W), diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI), magnetic resonance spectroscopy(More)
BACKGROUND Many mortality risk scoring tools exist among patients with ST-elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI). A risk stratification model that evaluates STEMI prognosis more simply and rapidly is preferred in clinical practice. METHODS AND FINDINGS We developed a simple stratification model for blood examination by using the STEMI data of AMI-Kyoto(More)
We have evaluated a polar cortical flow Baumkuchen map (BK map), constructed from projection data by inwardly layering cortical flow stripes from the base to the apex, to detect postural cerebral hypoperfusion using 99Tcm-HMPAO brain SPET. A circular cortical perfusion outline was constructed from sinogram data at a 20% threshold; a ring was then formed by(More)
BACKGROUND Patient dropout from treatment can lead to a deterioration in clinical condition, thereby increasing the need for more intensive therapy that incurs substantial social and economic losses. The aim of this study was to identify factors related to psychiatric patient dropout at a university outpatient clinic in Japan. METHODS We retrospectively(More)
The International Prognostic Index (IPI; age, the disease stage according to the Ann Arbor system, serum lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status (PS) and the presence of extranodal involvement (ENI)) has been the traditionally utilized prognostic tool for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) treated with(More)
