PURPOSE To evaluate the usefulness of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) for the differential diagnosis of breast tumors and to determine the relation between ADC and tumor cellularity. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred and thirty-six female patients (age range, 17-83 years; average age, 51.7 years) with 140 histologically proven breast tumors underwent(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of a combination of dynamic contrast-enhanced MR imaging (DCE-MRI) and diffusion-weighted MR imaging (DWI) in characterization of lesions showing non-mass-like enhancement on breast MR imaging and to find the strongest discriminators between carcinoma and benignancy. MATERIALS AND METHODS We analyzed consecutive(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of a combination of dynamic contrast-enhanced MR imaging (DCE-MRI) and diffusion-weighted MR imaging (DWI) in characterization of enhanced mass on breast MR imaging and to find the strongest discriminators between carcinoma and benignancy. MATERIALS AND METHODS We analyzed consecutive breast MR images in 270(More)
PURPOSE This study was performed to evaluate whether the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) of a primary lesion correlates with local failure in primary head-and-neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) treated with chemoradiotherapy or radiotherapy. METHODS AND MATERIALS We retrospectively studied 38 patients with primary HNSCC (12 oropharynx, 20(More)
The purpose of the study was to compare observer performance in the detection of masses and microcalcifications of breast cancer among hard-copy reading and soft-copy readings using 3-megapixel (3M) and 5-megapixel (5M) liquid crystal display (LCD) monitors. For the microcalcification detection test, we prepared 100 mammograms: 40 surgically verified cancer(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the ability of dynamic contrast material-enhanced and diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging to help detect early response to chemotherapy in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was approved by the institutional review board, and written informed consent was obtained from(More)
We report two cases of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) of the lung in a 4-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl. We performed dynamic contrastenhancement computed tomography in both of our cases and dynamic contrast enhancement magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in one case. These dynamic studies showed a demarcated mass with delayed enhancement in both(More)
Breast magnetic resonance imagings (MRIs) including diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) of 110 breast cancers (26 with pathologically proven axillary node metastasis and 84 without metastasis) were retrospectively studied. Axillary nodes were detected as high-signal-intensity areas on DWI in 71 cancers (24 with metastasis and 47 without) and not detected in 39(More)
To evaluate the correlation between apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) and prognosis in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) treated with radiotherapy. We retrospectively studied 41 patients (38 male and 3 female, ages 37–85 years) diagnosed with HNSCC (14 oropharynx, 22 hypopharynx, 4 larynx, 1 oral cavity) and treated with radiotherapy, with(More)
OBJECTIVE Visual event related potentials (ERPs) were studied during an oddball paradigm, to testify whether cognitive slowing in Parkinson's disease exists and to investigate whether cognitive information processing can be influenced by different interstimulus intervals (ISIs) of an oddball task in patients with Parkinson's disease and normal subjects.
