OBJECTIVES To determine how many men with high-risk prostate cancer (prostate-specific antigen [PSA]>20 ng/ml or biopsy Gleason score 8-10) have positive lymph nodes (sentinel lymph nodes [SLNs] and nonsentinel lymph nodes [NSLNs]) and whether these positive nodes are localised in the region of SLN dissection or in other regions, too. METHODS In 228 men(More)
PURPOSE We determined the incidence of positive pelvic lymph nodes in men undergoing radical retropubic prostatectomy and describe the correlation with prostate specific antigen, histological grade and stage. We examined whether tumor cells are localized in the sentinel nodes only or also in other nonsentinel lymph nodes. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of(More)
UNLABELLED This study is a retrospective analysis of 124 differentiated thyroid cancer patients who underwent dosimetric evaluation using MIRD methodology over a period of 15 y. The objectives of the study were to demonstrate the clinical use of dosimetry-guided radioactive iodine ([RAI] (131)I) treatment and the safe and effective application of a 3-Gy(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate how many men with low-risk prostate cancer had positive lymph nodes detected by radio-guided surgery and whether they had a higher biochemical relapse rate after radical prostatectomy, because in such patients most urologists dispense with operative lymph node staging, as nomograms indicate only a low percentage of lymph node(More)
A sigma-delta capacitance-to-digital converter (CDC) with a resolution down to 19.3 aF at a bandwidth of 10 kHz, corresponding to a noise level of 0.2 aF/√Hz, is presented. An integrated dielectric loss measurement circuit by means of two parallel channels with different integration times offers a complex permittivity measurement in a single-chip(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the reliability of preoperative diagnostics in predicting the true histopathological stage and grade of prostate cancer, and to examine whether lymph node (LN) metastases in unilateral prostate cancer are located unilaterally and therefore whether it is justified to dissect only the ipsilateral LNs in presumed unilateral disease.

— For capacitive measurement applications different methods were proposed recently. One of the most promising architecture to achieve high resolution is the delta sigma capacitance to digital converter (CDC). It offers a multitude of architectural variants – order of modulator, oversampling ratio, multibit feedback and digital filter functions to design for(More)
