Focused ultra sound cancer

Restaging local recurrence after high-intensity focused ultra-sound (HIFU) is based on multiparametric MRI (mpMRI). However, postinterventional changes of the tissue, such as edema or hemorrhage, are limiting tumor detection on mpMRI. We present a case of a rising prostate-specific antigen values, negative mpMRI, and a Gleason score of 4+4 on template biopsy after HIFU. On F-choline PET/MR, high focal uptake was detected at the location of positive biopsy. Re-HIFU based on the fused F-choline PET/MR images was performed, followed by a recurrence-free period of 11 months...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of the regimen of low-dose high intensity focused ultra-sound (HIFU) plus S-1 and oxaliplatin (SOX) in the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer patients with pelvic masses. METHODS: A total of 46 patients with metastatic colorectal cancer were recruited and divided into 2 groups: Twenty patients received concurrent HIFU plus S-1 and oxaliplatin (SOX) while another 26 patients SOX alone. The baseline characteristics, progressive-free survival, overall survival time and adverse events were retrospectively analyzed...

PURPOSE: To propose a state-of-the art of current knowledge about clinical, ureteroscopic and photodynamic for the diagnosis of the upper urinary tract cancer (UTUC). MATERIAL AND METHOD: A systematic review of the literature search was performed from the database Medline (NLM, Pubmed), focused on the following keywords: urothelial carcinomas; upper urinary tract; ureter; renal pelvis; diagnosis; fluorescence; ureteroscopy; photodynamic technique; biopsy; cytology...

A new, simple, non-invasive and inexpensive imaging method of internal organs, using the "Bi-Digital O-Ring Test" was developed by the author. This new imaging technique does not require any bulky expensive instruments or electric power source. Unlike currently available imaging techniques, such as NMR tomography, CAT-Scan, angiography, or ultrasonography, which expose the patient to undesirable radiation, this new imaging technique does not expose the patient to undesirable radiation, such as X-rays, strong magnetic field, ultra-sound, etc...
