BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The primary aim of this prospective study was to investigate the value of (99m)Tc-methoxyisobutylisonitrile (MIBI) single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) gated myocardial perfusion imaging (GMPI) in the detection of radiation-induced heart disease (RIHD) as early as during radiotherapy (RT) for oesophageal cancer (EC). The(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate whether during/post-radiotherapy FDG uptake locations within tumors is likely identified using a pre-radiotherapy scan for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), ultimately enabling confirm that a suitable metabolically active sub-volume pre-radiotherapy of the primary tumor for radiation boosting target. METHODS Patients with a(More)
Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) patients are at risk for local failure (LF) following treatment. Predicting tumor regions at high risk for local failure before radiotherapy may increase treatment efficacy by permitting an escalated radiation dose specifically to those regions critical for tumor control. Forty-one patients with non-resectable(More)
In this retrospective study, we analyzed the association of clinicopathological factors and therapeutic plans with platinum-sensitivity status and survival of limited-stage small cell lung cancer (LS-SCLC) patients. We enrolled 452 LS-SCLC patients with 279 platinum sensitive and 173 platinum refractory patients. The low serum neuro-specific enolase levels(More)
Pyruvate kinase isoenzyme M2 (PKM2) is a key enzyme to regulate aerobic glycolysis in tumor cells and can be used as potential target for cancer therapy. Here, we investigated the effect of knockdown of PKM2 on non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) responses to ionizing radiation. Our results showed that PKM2 was greatly up-regulated in radioresistant cell(More)
