Results of the proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy carried out on normal, benign breast disease and locally advanced breast cancer patients are presented. The in-vivo MR spectra of malignant breast tissue of patients (n = 67) suffering from infiltrating ductal carcinoma are dominated by the water resonance, while the spectra of the unaffected(More)
The association of estrogen receptor, progesterone receptor, and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) status of breast cancer patients with total choline (tCho) concentration and tumor volume was investigated using in vivo proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy and MRI at 1.5 T. Values for tCho concentration were determined in 120 locally(More)
Primary gallbladder carcinoma is a malignant neoplasm with an incidence of 1.2 cases per 100 000 people each year. Its occurrence increases with age, particularly in women. It is the fifth most common cancer of the gastrointestinal tract, and the most common malignancy in the biliary tract. Adenocarcinoma is the most common type of gallbladder neoplasm(More)
The role of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) in the diagnosis of breast cancer and its association with molecular biomarkers was investigated in 259 patients with breast cancer, 67 with benign pathology, and 54 healthy volunteers using diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) at 1.5 T. In 59 breast cancer patients, dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCEMRI) was(More)
BACKGROUND Enlargement of adipocyte is associated with their dysfunction and alterations in metabolic functions. OBJECTIVES We evaluated the association of adipocyte size of subcutaneous and omental adipose tissue with body composition and cardiovascular risk factors in Asian Indians. METHODOLOGY Eighty (40 males and 40 females) non-diabetic adult(More)
Studies pertaining to trans fatty acids (TFA), which have been implicated in development of chronic diseases, are more relevant in developing countries where nutrition transition is changing traditional habits and practices. Measuring TFA is an arduous task because of the need for fat biopsies. This study identifies a tissue, which can be easily accessed(More)
