OBJECTIVES This study compares tumour response assessment by automated CT volumetry and standard manual measurements regarding the impact on treatment decisions and patient outcome. METHODS 58 consecutive patients with 203 pulmonary metastases undergoing baseline and follow-up multirow detector CT (MDCT) under chemotherapy were assessed for response to(More)
PURPOSE This in-vivo study quantifies the accuracy of automated pulmonary nodule volumetry in reconstructions with different slice thicknesses (ST) of clinical routine CT scans. The accuracy of volumetry is compared to that of unidimensional and bidimensional measurements. MATERIALS AND METHODS 28 patients underwent contrast enhanced 64-row CT scans of(More)
The Muller F element (4.2 Mb, ~80 protein-coding genes) is an unusual autosome of Drosophila melanogaster; it is mostly heterochromatic with a low recombination rate. To investigate how these properties impact the evolution of repeats and genes, we manually improved the sequence and annotated the genes on the D. erecta, D. mojavensis, and D. grimshawi F(More)
