BACKGROUND AND AIM White globe appearance (WGA) is a small white lesion with a globular shape that can be identified by magnifying endoscopy with narrow-band imaging (M-NBI). WGA was recently reported as a novel endoscopic marker that can differentiate between gastric cancer (GC) and low-grade adenoma. However, the usefulness of WGA for differentiating GC(More)
We propose a method for traffic line guidance that relies on projecting moving information by using a pan-tilt projector. The information is changed on the basis of personal feature extraction performed by using surveillance cameras. For the effective design, we made models are based on how a person perceives information through sight. Thorough two(More)
OBJECTIVE Since 2007, S-1 plus cisplatin therapy has been recognized as the standard first-line treatment for advanced gastric cancer in Japan. However, no standard regimen has been established for patients refractory to first-line treatment. Furthermore, irinotecan and paclitaxel are considered key drugs for second-line treatment. Several studies have(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to clarify the frequency of colorectal neoplasm (CRN) complicating superficial esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) and the need for colonoscopy. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 101 patients who had undergone initial endoscopic resection (ER) for superficial ESCC. Control group participants were age- and(More)
OBJECTIVES Magnifying narrow-band imaging (M-NBI) is more accurate than white-light imaging for diagnosing small gastric cancers. However, it is uncertain whether moving M-NBI images have additional effects in the diagnosis of gastric cancers compared with still images. DESIGN A prospective multicenter cohort study. METHODS To identify the additional(More)
A 73-year-old female was admitted to our hospital with abdominal pain and diarrhea. Computed tomography detected distension of the small intestine. A palmar erythema, multiple oral ulcers, and desquamation of the fingers appeared after hospitalization. Small-bowel endoscopic images showed multiple ulcers. We attributed this case to infection with Yersinia(More)
AIM To determine whether S-1 induces hepatic steatosis in patients being treated for pancreatic cancer. METHODS This retrospective study evaluated 22 patients who received oral S-1 as a first-line treatment for pancreatic cancer between January 2008 and July 2015 at the Ishikawa Prefectural Central Hospital. Patients underwent abdominal computed(More)
Superficial non-ampullary duodenal epithelial tumor (SNADET) is defined as a sporadic tumor that is confined to the mucosa or submucosa that does not arise from Vater's papilla, and it includes adenoma and adenocarcinoma. Recent developments in endoscopic technology, such as high-resolution endoscopy and image-enhanced endoscopy, may increase the chances of(More)
We report on a case of rhabdomyolysis related to sorafenib treatment for advanced hepatocellular carcinoma. A 70-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with fatigue, myalgia and an elevated creatine phosphokinase level. He was diagnosed as rhabdomyolysis related to sorafenib treatment for advanced hepatocellular carcinoma. After discontinuation of(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Although magnifying endoscopy with narrow-band imaging (M-NBI) is useful for the diagnosis of gastric mucosal lesions, differentiating between early cancer (EC) and low grade adenoma (LGA) remains a challenge. During M-NBI examination, we have noted the presence of a small, white lesion with a globular shape underneath cancerous(More)
