A prototype small animal imaging system was created for coupling fluorescence tomography (FT) with x-ray microcomputed tomography (microCT). The FT system has the potential to provide synergistic information content resultant from using microCT images as prior spatial information and then allows overlay of the FT image onto the original microCT image. The(More)
Tomographic imaging of a glioma tumor with endogenous fluorescence is demonstrated using a noncontact single-photon counting fan-beam acquisition system interfaced with microCT imaging. The fluorescence from protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) was found to be detectable, and allowed imaging of the tumor from within the cranium, even though the tumor presence was not(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to determine the feasibility of using a clinical optical breast scanner with molecular imaging strategies based on modulating light transmission. PROCEDURES Different concentrations of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT; 0.8-20.0 nM) and black hole quencher-3 (BHQ-3; 2.0-32.0 µM) were studied in specifically designed(More)
The authors report a case of a tumour arising in an aberrant intrasplenic pancreas, forming a fistula with the left colon, responsible for rectal bleeding in a 75 year old woman and treated by surgical resection. This tumour is classified as a heterotopic pancreatic tumour. As in the other two cases described in the literature, this tumour was found to be(More)
Second or more surgical procedures on parotid are usually difficult and may induce injury on the facial nerve. The authors report their experience about 42 patients. The choice between a total parotidectomy or a surgical excision of a tumor depends of the number of surgical procedure, the type of initial procedure and the histological type of the tumor.(More)
A retrospective multicenter study involving 12 digestive surgery centers was conducted on 497 cases of colon obstruction. The most frequent cause of colon obstruction was colo-rectal cancer (71 p. cent of cases), but many other etiologies were involved, including 61 cases of torsion and 37 patients with occlusive sigmoiditis. Differential clinical and(More)
