From 1977 to 1988, 215 patients with a diagnosis of testicular seminoma were referred to the University Hospital, Hamburg, West Germany, for radiation therapy (RT). In 15 patients a careful review of the histologic condition showed signs of embryonal cell carcinoma. Three patients refused completion of therapy. No patient was lost to follow-up. On this(More)
Ultrasonography, especially real-time-B-mode, is outstandingly suitable for detecting larger alterations of abdominal blood vessels or stenosis of the truncus coeliacus. This stenosis could be detected in 18 cases by real-time-scanning. 10 of these diagnosis were confirmed by angiography. The clinical value of these findings is discussed.
Basing on the case of a woman patient with marked cystic degeneration of the liver and both kidneys, it is shown that the meaningful use of sonographically monitored relief punctures every 3 to 5 months, can render effective help of a palliative nature over a period of presently more than 5 years, in a simple manner which is free from complications.
In 848 examinations of the testes in 317 patients, including 253 follow-up and/or multiple follow-up examinations and 36 unilateral testicle examinations (e.g., orchidectomy, aplasia or nondescent) it was shown that sonography is a diagnostic method which is on the one hand capable of clearly differentiating cystic from solid space-occupying processes, and(More)

In 152 examinations, sonography was found to be a reliable screening method in the follow-up of curative and palliative surgery of carcinoma of the pancreas. By the effected changeover from compound scanning to the high-resolution real-time B-process, it has become possible to recognize at an early date even small locoregional recurring tumours (1.5 cm(More)
Therapy of large inoperable squamous cell-carcinomas of the head and neck is considerably problemful. Combined simultaneous radio-chemotherapy with carboplatin and radiotherapy with hyperfractionated accelerated radiation is small effective than conventional monofractionated radiotherapy alone and may reduce side effects. Aim of the following study was(More)
Radiological and ultrasound examinations were performed in 34 women with recurrent urinary tract infection, as part of a prospective study of pyelonephritis. Ultrasound was found to be valuable in the recognition of new pyelonephritic scars and for screening. In assessing ultrasound and radiological findings the criteria of Hodson are equally valuable in(More)
