An overview of the newer noninvasive or minimally invasive biomarkers of CRC ranging from their potential usefulness to obtain early and less-invasive diagnosis to their potential implementation in the development of a bespoke treatment of CRC is provided.
Concurrent chemotherapy alone versus irreversible electroporation followed by chemotherapy on survival in patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer
Treatment with IRE followed by chemotherapy substantially increases median OS rate and quality-of-life of LAPC-diagnosed patients when compared to patients treated with traditional methods, including chemotherapy.
Radiofrequency ablation of osteoid osteoma
An overview about the radiofrequency thermal ablation procedure in the treatment of osteoid osteoma is provided to be a safe and effective alternative to classical surgery, with a low complication and recurrence rate, and a significant reduction in hospitalization cost and duration.
Coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging in the assessment of patients presenting with chest pain suspected for acute coronary syndrome.
In high-risk patients, with acute and chronic manifestations of CAD, CMR may be preferable to CCTA, since it would allow detection, differential diagnosis, prognostic evaluation and management of MI.
Diagnostic value of computed tomography colonography (CTC) after incomplete optical colonoscopy.
Earliest Videofluoromanometric Pharyngeal Signs of Dysphagia in ALS Patients
A video fluoromanometric swallowing study may show an increase in the pharyngeal contraction time and in residual pressure after relaxation of the UES in ALS patients without videofluoroscopic changes in contrast-medium oropharyngeAL transit.
Assessing Response to Radiation Therapy Treatment of Bone Metastases: Short-Term Followup of Radiation Therapy Treatment of Bone Metastases with Diffusion-Weighted Magnetic Resonance Imaging
This study examined the usefulness of diffusion-weighted Magnetic Resonance Imaging in monitoring bone metastases response to radiation therapy in 15 oligometastatic patients and found it may represent a useful tool in the differentiation between treatment-induced necrosis and highly cellular residual tumor.
