BACKGROUND Many studies have shown that cancer cell differentiation and microvascular invasion play a principle role in cancer progression and metastasis, and non-invasive imaging techniques such as CT, MRI and US assessing the differentiation and the surgical resectibility and the prognosis of cancers are now of great importance. This study aimed to(More)
AIM To study the relationship between the CX3CL1 chemokine, its receptor CX3CR1, and gastric carcinoma/gastric carcinoma perineural invasion (PNI). METHODS Thirty cases of gastric carcinoma were surgically resected (radical resection or palliative resection) between February 2012 and July 2012. Tumour and tumour-adjacent tissues were evaluated for the(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to investigate multi-slice CT contrast-enhanced presentation of gastric cancer and its correlation with histo-differentiation and p53 and P-glycoprotein (P-gp) expression. METHODS Sixty-six patients with gastric cancer in the present study underwent a multi-slice CT preoperative routine and dual-phase contrast-enhanced(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the value of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and perfusion imaging (PI) in definition of the ischemic penumbra in hyperacute cerebral infarction. METHODS (1) Animal study: Fifty-five SD rats were randomly divided into 5 groups of 10 rats. Nylon monofilament was inserted into the left middle cerebral artery (MCA) and immediately(More)
This study aimed to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of combined direct and indirect CT venography (combined CTV) in the detection of lower extremity deep vein thrombosis (LEDVT). The institutional review board approved the study protocol, and patients or qualifying family members provided informed consent. A total of 96 consecutive patients undergoing(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the associations of triple-phase enhancement multi-slice CT scan with histological differentiation and lymphovascular invasion in advanced gastric cancer. METHODS Patients with gastric cancer undergoing surgical resection between January 2006 and December 2009 were included, all of whom underwent routine and two-phase contrast(More)
