With the superb spatial resolution of modern multislice CT scanners and their ability to complete a thoracic scan within one breath-hold, software algorithms for computer-aided detection (CAD) of pulmonary nodules are now reaching high sensitivity levels at moderate false positive rates. A number of pilot studies have shown that CAD modules can successfully(More)
BACKGROUND Taurolidine (TRD) is a novel agent with multimodal antineoplastic effects. We present the case of a tumor remission after intravenous administration of taurolidine in a patient with gastric cancer re-recurrence. CASE PRESENTATION A 58 years old male patient suffering from a gastric adenocarcinoma was submitted to partial gastrectomy and partial(More)
The study investigates the effect of a substantial dose reduction on the variability of lung nodule volume measurements by assessing and comparing nodule volumes using a dedicated semiautomated segmentation software on ultralow-dose computed tomography (ULD-CT) and standard-dose computed tomography (SD-CT) data. In 20 patients, thin-slice chest CT datasets(More)
Tomosynthesis is a 3-dimensional mammography technique that generates thin slices separated one to the other by typically 1 mm from source data sets. The relatively high image noise in these thin slices raises the value of 1-cm thick slices computed from the set of reconstructed slices for image interpretation. In an initial evaluation, we investigated the(More)
