PURPOSE To compare the diagnostic performance of rapid whole-body anatomic magnetic resonance (MR) staging of pediatric and adolescent lymphoma to an enhanced positron emission tomographic (PET)/computed tomographic (CT) reference standard. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ethical permission was given by the University College London Hospital ethics committee, and(More)
PURPOSE This study explores the relationship between MRI Apparent Diffusion Coefficient (ADC) and PET Standardized Uptake Value (SUV) measurements in pediatric Hodgkin lymphoma. METHODS Sixteen patients (mean age 15.4 yrs, 8 male) with proven Hodgkin lymphoma were recruited and staged using PET-CT, anatomical MRI and additional 1.5T diffusion weighted(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is associated with increased mortality in fibrotic idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (IIP). We hypothesize that baseline K(CO) (diffusing capacity of carbon monoxide/alveolar volume) and 6-month decline in K(CO) reflect PH, thus predicting mortality in IIP. METHODS All IIP referrals (2004-2007) were(More)
A 69-year-old man who presented with abdominal discomfort was, on examination, found to have a palpable abdominal mass. Contrast-enhanced CT showed a mass arising from the inferior vena cava, which biopsy confirmed to be a leiomyosarcoma. One month after chemoradiotherapy, CT demonstrated a new 15 mm solitary central right liver metastasis. Microwave(More)
Multidisciplinary meetings are central to the management of chronic and complex diseases and they have become widely established across the modern healthcare. Patients with pancreatobiliary diseases can often present with complex clinical dilemmas, which fall out with the scope of current guidelines. Therefore, these patients require a personalised(More)
OBJECTIVE Painful chronic pancreatitis is often associated with main duct obstruction due to stones. Approaches to management are challenging, including surgery, extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, or endoscopic approaches. Here, we report our experience of pancreatoscopy + electrohydraulic lithotripsy (EHL) for pancreatic duct (PD) stones using(More)
We present a case of a patient who following chemotherapy developed semi-invasive pulmonary aspergillosis and an aspergilloma in a lung cavity previously formed by microwave ablation (MWA). A 55-year-old woman presented with cough and shortness of breath after finishing three cycles of chemotherapy for a metastatic nerve sheath tumour. She had been treated(More)
