PURPOSE This was a multinational, open-label, randomized phase III trial comparing yttrium-90-labeled murine HMFG1 (90Y-muHMFG1) plus standard treatment versus standard treatment alone in patients with epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) who had attained a complete clinical remission after cytoreductive surgery and platinum-based chemotherapy.

The appearance of the pancreas in 17 adult patients with cystic fibrosis was evaluated with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. The pancreas was abnormal in 15 patients. Three patterns were observed: (a) lobulated enlarged pancreas with complete replacement by fatty tissue (n = 9), (b) small atrophic pancreas with partial replacement by fat tissue (n = 5), and(More)
Infrahepatic interruption of the inferior vena cava is a congenital anomaly, resulting in venous drainage of the lower extremities by way of a compensatory enlarged vena azygos system. We report the case of a 37-year-old male who presented with symptoms of deep vein thrombosis of the entire right lower extremity. A right-sided mediastinal mass on the chest(More)
While studying the uptake of iodine-123-metaiodobenzylguanidine ([123I]MIBG) in chemodectomas, we coincidentally detected catecholamine secreting tumors in 5 out of 14 patients. In three of these cases, a norepinephrine secreting abdominal paraganglioma was subsequently removed. One patient had a norepinephrine secreting chemodectoma and one had a dopamine(More)
OBJECTIVE Because the distinction between adenomas and nonadenomas of the adrenal gland is essential, we investigated which of the following parameters--size, CT attenuation values, MRI signal intensity ratios on T1- and T2-weighted sequences, calculated T2 relaxation times, or T2 relaxation time ratios--provides better discrimination.

The accuracy of computed tomography (CT) and [99mTc]HMPAO granulocyte scintigraphy (GS) for detection of bowel localization, inflammatory activity, and complications in acute inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) was prospectively studied in 32 patients. Of each bowel segment, findings on CT and GS were scored by one blinded observer. Findings on operation or(More)
A prospective study was performed in 64 patients suspected of having primary or recurrent ovarian epithelial cancer. Physical examination (PE), ultrasonography (US), computer tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were performed and CA 125 serum levels (CA 125) were determined. This evaluation was followed within 3 weeks by laparotomy, which(More)
Leptospirosis, although ubiquitous and potentially lethal, is often not diagnosed. The seroprevalence of anti-Leptospira antibodies and the utility of two rapid tests for the serodiagnosis of the disease were studied in Binh Thuan, an area in southern Vietnam with favourable conditions for Leptospira. In an initial survey, blood samples from 44 patients(More)
In a double-blind, prospective study, the authors analyzed bone scintigrams and magnetic resonance (MR) images of the spine in 71 patients with histologically proved skeletal metastases. Bone scintigrams and MR images were separately reviewed by four independent observers. Bone scintigraphy permitted identification of 499 abnormal vertebrae and MR imaging,(More)
