PURPOSE This study aimed to investigate whether metabolic tumor volume (MTV) measured from [(18)F]-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) predicts short-term outcome to radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy and disease-free survival (DFS) in patients with pharyngeal cancers. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN The MTVs of(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the prognostic significance and predictive performance of volume-based parameters of F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (F-FDG PET/CT) in early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). BACKGROUND Although surgical resection remains the optimal treatment for early-stage NSCLC, approximately 40% of(More)
Accurate prediction of cancer prognosis before the start of treatment is important since these predictions often affect the choice of treatment. Prognosis is usually based on anatomical staging and other clinical factors. However, the conventional system is not sufficient to accurately and reliably determine prognosis. Metabolic parameters measured by(More)
OBJECTIVES Spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH) is caused by spontaneous spinal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks. However, there is debate regarding clinical indication of radionuclide cisternography (RNC) for identification of the actual site of a CSF leak. We therefore investigated the potential value of RNC in SIH. PATIENTS AND METHODS RNC was(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of this study was to identify the incidence and clinical significance of incidental pituitary uptake on whole-body (18)F-FDG PET/CT. METHODS We evaluated 13,145 consecutive subjects who underwent (18)F-FDG PET/CT. The final diagnosis of pathologic or physiologic uptake was based on brain MRI and follow-up PET scanning.(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of metabolic tumor volume (MTV) measured by 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (18F-FDG PET) in patients with esophageal carcinoma. We retrospectively reviewed 151 patients with pathologically proven esophageal carcinoma (146 squamous cell carcinomas and 5 adenocarcinomas) who(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to investigate the value of (18)F-FDG parameters of the primary tumor in predicting occult lymph node metastasis in patients with clinically N0 esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. METHODS The study comprised 143 consecutive patients (mean age ± SD, 63.9 ± 8.6 y; range, 31.8-81.2 y) from May 2003 to January 2010 who had(More)
We evaluated the prognostic impact of volume-based assessment by 18F-FDG PET/CT in patients with stage III non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We reviewed 194 consecutive patients with stage IIIA NSCLC treated with surgical resection (surgical group) and 115 patients treated with nonsurgical therapy (nonsurgical group: 50 stage IIIA, 65 stage IIIB).(More)
We assessed the association between nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and carotid artery inflammation measured by (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography. Participants were 755 consecutive otherwise healthy adult males who underwent a general health screening program. Carotid FDG uptake, represented as maximum(More)
To evaluate the importance of assessing volume-based parameter of 18F-FDG PET/CT in patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) for the prediction of response and patient outcome early in the course of treatment. Patients (n = 13; M:F = 9:4, mean age, 54 years) with histopathologically proven MPM, all of whom were scheduled to undergo curative(More)
