Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) is a noninvasive multimodality technique that allows high-resolution imaging in mice. It is affordable, widely available, and portable. When it is coupled to Doppler ultrasound with color and power Doppler, it can be used to quantify blood flow and to image microcirculation as well as the response of tumor blood supply to(More)
AIM To assess whether performing routinely 2-deoxy-2-[(18)F]fluoro-D-glucose PET/CT ((18)FDG PET/CT) scan from the upper thigh to the vertex of skull is clinically relevant. MATERIALS AND METHODS 3502 (1634 female; mean-age 60+16) consecutive patients undergoing (18)FDG PET/CT were retrospectively analyzed. Patients were divided in 10 groups according to(More)
BACKGROUND The neurobiological underpinnings of avolition in schizophrenia remain unclear. Most brain imaging research has focused on reward prediction deficit and on ventral striatum dysfunction, but findings are not consistent. In the light of accumulating evidence that both ventral striatum and dorsal caudate play a key role in motivation, we(More)
Cerebral vein analysis provides a fundamental tool to study brain diseases such as neurodegenerative disorders or traumatic brain injuries. In order to assess the vascular anatomy, manual segmentation approaches can be used but are observer-dependent and time-consuming. In the present work, a fully automated cerebral vein segmentation method is proposed,(More)
Since 2001 the Istituto Superiore di Sanità established a quality assurance programme for molecular genetic testing that covers four pathologies: Cystic Fibrosis (CF), Beta Thalassemia (BT), Fragile X Syndrome (FX), and Familial Adenomatous Polyposis Coli (APC). Since 2009 this activity is an institutional activity and participation is open to both public(More)
AIM The aim was to compare the imaging findings of (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose ((18)F-FDG) PET and integrated PET/CT in patients with primary, recurrent or metastatic ovarian cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS 21 women with ovarian cancer were evaluated. All patients had a integrated PET/CT scan. Localization, infiltration and uptake intensity of [(18)F]FDG were(More)
