OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to evaluate the utility of single-shot spin-echo echo-planar diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) using a b value of 400-500 s/mm(2) for depicting peritoneal tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-four consecutive oncology patients underwent preoperative abdominal and pelvic MRI for tumor staging. MRI included breath-hold(More)
BACKGROUND Evaluation of peritoneal metastases by computed tomography (CT) scans is challenging and has been reported to be inaccurate. METHODS A multi-institutional prospective observational registry study of patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis from colorectal cancer was conducted and a subset analysis was performed to examine peritoneal cancer index(More)
PURPOSE To compare fat-suppressed, gadolinium-enhanced, breath-hold magnetic resonance (MR) imaging after administration of dilute oral barium solution with unenhanced MR imaging and computed tomography (CT) in the detection of peritoneal tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 24 patients in whom peritoneal tumor was known or suspected, double-contrast MR(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the safety, toxicity, and antitumor immune response following S.C. immunizations with a mixture of irradiated, autologous tumor cells and autologous fibroblasts that were genetically modified to express the gene for interleukin 2 (IL-2) in patients with colorectal carcinoma. Ten patients were treated with a fixed(More)
To compare the accuracy of MRI and CT for predicting the Peritoneal Cancer Index (PCI) preoperatively compared with the PCI tabulated at surgery. Twenty-two patients underwent preoperative MRI and CT scanning followed by cytoreductive surgery for appendiceal (n = 17) and ovarian (n = 5) cancer. MR and CT examinations were retrospectively reviewed to(More)
Liver metastases are a common cause of death in colon carcinoma. The dual blood supply of the liver permits regional perfusion while hepatic catabolism fo 5-fluorouracil (FU), floxuridine (FUdR) permit higher drug exposures than systemic (IV) administration. We have studied the effect of continuous intra-arterial chemotherapy (FU: 5-10 mg/kg/day and FUdR:(More)
Six patients with unresectable carcinoma of the esophagus received a combined course of external radiation therapy (1000 rads in four fractions in four days commencing on day 2) combined with constant infusional 5-fluorouracil (20 mg/kg every 24 hours for five days beginning on day 1). This program was repeated every other week to give a total x-ray dose of(More)
To determine if delta 1-testololactone can inhibit the peripheral aromatization of androstenedione (delta), nine postmenopausal women with metastatic breast cancer were studied before and after 2 weeks of therapy with 250 mg of the drug, given every 6 h by mouth. The conversion ratio of delta to estrone (E1) was significantly reduced (P less than 0.005)(More)
