PURPOSE The study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of PET/CT in detecting peritoneal carcinomatosis in patients with ovarian cancer and to compare the diagnostic accuracy of FDG PET/CT with that of enhanced abdominal CT. METHODS The medical records of 46 consecutive patients with ovarian cancer were reviewed, and the presence of peritoneal tumor on(More)
Twelve parotid incidentalomas in 10 consecutive subjects (nine with a known malignancy elsewhere and one presumptively healthy subject) identified by combined 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose whole-body positron emission tomography and computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) were investigated, with the aim of calculating maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) of(More)
This study assessed whether preoperative maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) of metastatic lymph nodes (LNs) measured by F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (F-FDG PET/CT) could improve the prediction of prognosis in gastric cancer.One hundred fifty-one patients with gastric cancer and pathologically confirmed(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the properties of adrenal lesions with and without known primary cancer and investigate predictors for differential diagnosis between benign and malignant adrenal enlargement. METHODS This retrospective study used fluorine-18 fludeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (PET)/CT in 325 patients with adrenal lesions (229 with known(More)
PURPOSE This retrospective study investigated the usefulness of F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) after interventional therapy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS Between March 2007 and November 2010, 31 patients (24 men, 7 women; mean age, 61.8 ± 11.0 years) with 45 lesions underwent PET/CT(More)
A 69-year-old man with common bile duct cancer and deep jaundice had complained of abdominal pain after percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage. The laboratory workup showed reduction of serum hemoglobin level after the procedure. A 99mTc-hydroxy diphosphonate bone scan was performed for further evaluation of common bile duct cancer, and there was no(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to characterize the patterns of fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake on F-18 FDG positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) at the anastomotic site of gastroduodenostomy after distal subtotal gastrectomy in patients with gastric cancer. METHODS From May 2007 to May 2010, two or more follow-up measurements(More)
UNLABELLED Cancer patients frequently have anemia or an altered coagulation state that may affect their risk stratification for perioperative cardiac events. We performed this study to investigate the incidence of perioperative cardiac events in cancer patients who had abnormal stress myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) results versus cancer patients with(More)
Spontaneous pneumothorax is a rare manifestation of metastatic lung cancers and described in advanced diseases or during cytotoxic chemotherapy which is manifested by sudden onset of dyspnea. The cause or mechanism of spontaneous pneumothorax has been unknown, as well as the association with site of metastases or type of cancers or side effect of(More)
