PURPOSE Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) surveillance programs are currently offered to high-risk individuals aiming to detect precursor lesions or PDAC at an early stage. We assessed differences in frequency and behavior of precursor lesions and PDAC between two high-risk groups. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Individuals with a p16-Leiden germline mutation(More)
BACKGROUND It is recommended that BRCA1/2 mutation carriers undergo breast cancer screening using MRI because of their very high cancer risk and the high sensitivity of MRI in detecting invasive cancers. Clinical observations suggest important differences in the natural history between breast cancers due to mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2, potentially(More)
In order to assess the characteristics of malignant breast lesions those were not detected during screening by MR imaging. In the Dutch MRI screening study(MRISC), a non-randomized prospective multicenter study,women with high familial risk or a genetic predisposition for breast cancer were screened once a year by mammography and MRI and every 6 months with(More)
PURPOSE Diffuse optical spectroscopy (DOS) has the potential to enable monitoring of tumor response during chemotherapy, particularly in the early stages of treatment. This study aims to assess feasibility of DOS for monitoring treatment response in HER2-negative breast cancer patients receiving neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) and compare DOS with tumor(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE MR angiography of the head and neck region has been studied widely, but few studies have been performed concerning the efficacy of MR angiography for the identification of the specific vascular supply of the highly vascular head and neck paragangliomas. In this study, we compared three MR angiography techniques with respect to(More)
AIMS A new multiple electrode probe, the Multiple Array Probe Leiden (MAPLe), has been developed for biofeedback registration of the individual pelvic floor musculature (PFM). The aim was to determine the reliability and differentiation of electromyography (EMG) signals measured with the MAPLe in healthy volunteers. METHODS Two hundred twenty nine healthy(More)
Balb/c mice were immunized with human plasmin-generated fibrinogen degradation product Y. Spleen cells were fused with P3X63-Ag8.653 myeloma cells. A clone (Y22) was found that produces monoclonal antibodies (MoAbs) with a strong reactivity with human fibrin and only a weak reactivity with fibrinogen in an enzyme immunoassay (EIA). Y22 also reacts with(More)
In 3–5 % of all cases of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), hereditary factors influence etiology. While surveillance of high-risk individuals may improve the prognosis, this study describes two very different outcomes in patients with screen-detected lesions. In 2000, a surveillance program of carriers of a CDKN2A/p16-Leiden-mutation consisting of(More)
UNLABELLED Nonanastomotic biliary strictures (NAS) remain a frequent complication after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). The aim of this study was to evaluate whether magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) could be used to detect NAS and to grade the severity of biliary strictures. METHODS In total, 58 patients after OLT from 2 Dutch(More)
