Eighteen patients with mediastinal involvement of Hodgkin disease were examined with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging before and during therapy to find out if size of residual masses could be predicted from the MR characteristics of the tumor at diagnosis. After the first treatment, a significant decrease in T2 values and signal intensity ratios of tumor to(More)
Many studies have reported satisfactory clinical outcomes and low redislocation rates after reconstruction of the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) for the treatment of lateral patellar instability. Despite uncorrected severe trochlear dysplasia (Dejour type B to D) being acknowledged as a major reason for less favourable clinical outcomes and a higher(More)
UNLABELLED Our goal was to determine whether PET with 11C-methionine and/or 18FDG could predict malignancy grade in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). METHODS Twenty-three patients with high-grade, low-grade or transformed low-grade NHL were investigated. Standardized uptake values (SUV), transport rate and mass influx values were calculated both for the whole(More)
Twenty-four patients with malignant bone marrow involvement or polycythemia vera, 8 patients with reactive bone marrow and 7 healthy individuals were examined with spin-echo magnetic resonance imaging at 0.35 T and 0.5 T. Signs of an increased longitudinal relaxation time, T1, were found when normal bone marrow was replaced by malignant cells, polycythemia(More)
Fifty patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) were examined with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in order to analyze whether it is possible to distinguish in vivo between the two major prognostic groups, low-grade NHL and high-grade NHL. Most high-grade NHL nodes (15 of 24 [63%]) had an inhomogeneous appearance at MR imaging, in contrast to low-grade NHL(More)
Six patients with mediastinal involvement of Hodgkin's disease were examined with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at 0.35 T before and/or at various stages of therapy, with the sequences TR/TE: 500/35, 500/70, 1600/35 and 1,600/70. Before therapy the image intensity of tumour involved lymph nodes deviated considerably from fat and muscle, but no clear(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was compared with chest radiography, computed tomography (CT) and ultrasonography (US) for demonstration of spleen and liver engagement and enlarged lymph nodes in patients with malignant lymphoma. The investigation comprised 24 patients with Hodgkin's disease (HD) and 39 with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). MRI demonstrated(More)
In a previous study of 50 patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) it was shown that the inhomogeneous appearance of a tumor at MR imaging strongly indicated a high malignancy grade. In this study of 33 patients with NHL, the administration of an i.v. contrast medium, Gadolinium-DTPA, improved the subjective detectability of the inhomogeneities. A method of(More)
The prognostic relevance of flow cytometric DNA measurements of lymph node biopsies in relation to histopathology according to the Kiel classification, stage, age and presence or absence of B-symptoms was investigated in 106 patients with non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL) of proven B-cell type. Biopsies were taken at diagnosis before treatment. The mean(More)
The possibility of using [18F] FDG PET for assessment of tumor extension in primary gastric non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) was studied in 8 patients (6 high-grade and 2 low-grade, one of the MALT type) and in a control group of 7 patients (5 patients with NHL without clinical signs of gastric involvement, 1 patient with NHL and benign gastric ulcer and 1(More)
