BACKGROUND There is currently little support to understand which pathological factors led to differences in tumor texture as measured from FDG PET/CT images. We studied whether tumor heterogeneity measured using texture analysis in FDG-PET/CT images is correlated with pathological prognostic factors in invasive breast cancer. METHODS Fifty-four patients(More)
The recent introduction of tissue harmonic imaging could resolve the problems related to ultrasound in technically difficult patients by providing a marked improvement in image quality. Tissue harmonics are generated during the transmit phase of the pulse-echo cycle, that is, while the transmitted pulse propagates through tissue. Tissue harmonic images are(More)
To assess the accuracy of FDG-PET/CT and MR with diffusion-weighted imaging (MR-DWI) for diagnosing peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) from gastrointestinal malignancies. Thirty consecutive patients referred for staging of gastrointestinal malignancy underwent FDG-PET/CT and MR-DWI in this retrospective study. Extent of PC was characterised by dividing the(More)
MSCs constitute a population of multipotential cells giving rise to adipocytes, osteoblasts, chondrocytes, and vascular-smooth muscle-like hematopoietic supportive stromal cells. It remains unclear whether MSCs can be isolated from adult peripheral blood under stationary conditions and whether they can be mobilized in a way similar to hematopoietic stem(More)
Findings from animal studies have suggested that bone remodeling is under beta-adrenergic control. However, the level of adrenergic inhibition required to achieve the most favorable effects on the skeleton remains unknown. To address this question, we compared the effects of low (0.1 mg/Kg/day), medium (5 mg/Kg/day) or high (20 mg/Kg/day) doses of(More)
To evaluate the diagnostic performance of Fourier phase analysis of gated blood pool single-photon emission computed tomography (GBP SPECT) in arrhythmogenic right ventricular (RV) cardiomyopathy, 18 patients with confirmed arrhythmogenic RV cardiomyopathy underwent GBP SPECT and x-ray cineangiography. Results were compared with data obtained with GBP SPECT(More)
PURPOSE We assessed early hemodynamic characteristics of various types of retinal vein occlusion using color Doppler imaging and spectral analysis. METHODS We measured the maximum systolic and diastolic blood flow velocities and the resistance index (RI) in the central retinal artery and the maximum and minimum blood flow velocities in the central retinal(More)
INTRODUCTION In a discordant orthotopic xenotransplantation model (pig-to-baboon) donor pigs expressing human decay accelerating factor (hDAF) as a regulator of complement activity were used to prevent hyperacute xenograft rejection (HXR). We investigated a modified immunosuppressive therapy consisting of ERL080 (Novartis Pharma AG, Base, Switzerland),(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this study was to evaluate the ability of Doppler tissue imaging (DTI) to localize the ventricular emergence site of accessory atrioventricular pathways (Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome). METHODS Thirty-three patients were studied prospectively by Doppler tissue imaging (128XP and Sequoia 256 echocardiographic systems; Acuson,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the prognostic value of early brain scintigraphy in head injury in relation to long-term neuropsychological behavior. Twenty-four patients underwent technetium-99m (Tc-99m) ethyl cysteinate dimer single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) within 1 month of the trauma. Scintigraphic abnormalities were(More)
