AIM To undertake a pilot study assessing whether tumour heterogeneity evaluated using computed tomography texture analysis (CTTA) has the potential to provide a marker of tumour aggression and prognosis in oesophageal cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 21 patients, unenhanced CT images of the primary oesophageal lesion obtained using positron-emission(More)
AIM This pilot study investigates whether heterogeneity in focal breast lesions and surrounding tissue assessed on mammography is potentially related to cancer invasion and hormone receptor status. MATERIALS AND METHODS Texture analysis (TA) assessed the heterogeneity of focal lesions and their surrounding tissues in digitized mammograms from 11 patients(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Grading of cerebral gliomas is important both in treatment decision and assessment of prognosis. The purpose of this study was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of grading cerebral gliomas by assessing the tumor heterogeneity using MRI texture analysis (MRTA). MATERIAL AND METHODS 95 patients with gliomas were included, 27 low(More)
To undertake a preliminary study that uses CT texture analysis (CTTA) to quantify heterogeneity in gliomas on contrast-enhanced CT and to assess the relationship between tumour heterogeneity and grade. Retrospective analysis of contrast enhanced CT images was performed in 44 patients with histologically proven cerebral glioma between 2007 and 2010. 11(More)
AIM To identify factors that influence the use of PET in phase III oncology trials in the UK by evaluating stakeholder perspectives. METHODS A wide range of UK PET research stakeholders with a potential interest in the use of PET in phase III trials were identified and invited to participate. These UK PET research stakeholders were consulted using a(More)
