OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to evaluate quantitative multiphasic CT enhancement patterns of malignant renal neoplasms to enable lesion differentiation by their enhancement characteristics. We used a new method to standardize enhancement measurement in lesions on multiphasic CT not being influenced by intrinsic factors like cardiac output. (More)
AIM The retrospective evaluation of correlations between semi-quantitative breast-specific gamma imaging (BSGI) and invasive ductal breast cancer (IDC) sub-types. MATERIALS AND METHODS The biopsy specimen of 50 histologically-proven IDCs were retrospectively evaluated concerning receptor status, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2/Neu) status,(More)
OBJECTIVE Selective sacral neuromodulation may fail after fluoroscopically guided lead placement because of malpositioning. We implemented a new technique to attain precise lead placement. CONCLUSION CT-guided tined lead placement was successful in eight patients after 12-month follow-up. Especially in patients with an altered anatomy in the sacral(More)
OBJECTIVE To prospectively analyse the diagnostic value of semi-quantitative breast-specific gamma imaging (BSGI) in the work-up of suspicious breast lesions compared with that of mammography (MG), breast ultrasound and MRI of the breast. METHODS Within a 15-month period, 67 patients with 92 breast lesions rated as Category IV or V according to the breast(More)
Catumaxomab, the first anti-EpCAM antibody, was approved in 2009 for the treatment of malignant ascites in cancer patients with EpCAM positive tumors. We consider this case of interest as treatment with catumaxomab not only prolonged the puncture-free interval but also showed a systemic effect in a patient with metastasized colorectal cancer by regression(More)
Tumors of the reproductive organs are among the most common female tumors. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are used for establishing the differential diagnosis, for staging and increasingly for treatment stratification. Sonography is the first line imaging modality for assessing benign and malignant tumors of the uterus as well(More)
As ovarian masses are common in both pre-and in postmenopausal age, a life time risk of up to 5-10% to undergo pelvic surgery has been reported [1]. However, the likelihood of malignancy in these lesions is extremely low. Imaging, particularly, US and MRI, have been integrated as diagnostic tools to better define indications for adequate surgery and to(More)
