Preliminary results of ultrasound studies do exist in the literature on the successful use of the MammoSite Radiation Therapy System (RTS), a new device for delivering brachytherapy following breast-conserving surgery. In Europe, some groups started a prospective multicentre trial to investigate the use of the MammoSite RTS. In this early publication, we(More)

Electromyography of the duodenums was performed in dogs, using two bipolar electrodes placed 5 and 10 cm aborally of the pylorus on the serosa of the duodenums. 10 days after implantation and 24 hours after the last meal the duodenal motility was registered in 9 bastard dogs for 5 hours. Pentagastrin, given as a 1-hour intravenous infusion, changed the(More)
Positron emission tomography using 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG-PET) is a encouraging imaging technique allowing a highly sensitive whole-body search for malignant foci detected by their increased glucose metabolism compared with benign tissues. Several studies are now available that indicate its added value for diagnosis and staging of colorectal cancer. In(More)
BACKGROUND Traditionally, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the lung is a central rather than a peripheral form of lung cancer. Rates of SCC in the lung periphery are typically sited in the 15-30% range. Recently, we observed that a significant portion of newly diagnosed SCC was located on a periphery. A comprehensive review of the tumor data at our(More)
In this study was observed the influence of Pancreozymin, Secretin, Glucagon, Pentagastrin and Somatostatin on the motility of duodenum in 256 seances in acute experiments on 12 dogs before and after truncal vagotomy and on 20 Wistar rats. As a control we used the return of the parameters of electrical and motor activity to their original levels. The(More)
