Philippe Ryvlin, Fabienne Picard
Invasive long-term EEG investigations of the insula have been performed since the mid-nineties in an expanding range of focal epilepsies suspected to involve the insular cortex. The various clinical forms of insular epilepsies were delineated during the last 2 decades, and include the following presentations: perisylvian epilepsy, temporal plus epilepsy, sleep hypermotor epilepsy, MRI-negative frontal and parietal lobe epilepsies, and insular lesions. In fact, a majority of complex stereoelectroencephalography procedures will include at least one electrode targeting the insula...

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced in the specific tumor site plays the key role in photodynamic therapy (PDT). Herein, a multifunctional nanoplatform is designed by absorbing ultrasmall upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) on mesoporous graphitic-phase carbon nitride (g-C3 N4 ) coated superparamagnetic iron oxide nanospheres, then further modified with polyethylene glycol (PEG)molecules (abbreviated as Fe3 O4 @g-C3 N4 -UCNPs-PEG). The inert g-C3 N4 layer between Fe3 O4 core and outer UCNPs can substantially depress the quenching effect of Fe3 O4 on the upconversion emission...

Deep learning models have outperformed some of the previous state-of-the-art approaches in medical image analysis. Instead of using hand-engineered features, deep models attempt to automatically extract hierarchical representations at multiple levels of abstraction from the data. Therefore, deep models are usually considered to be more flexible and robust solutions for image analysis problems compared to conventional computer vision models. They have demonstrated significant improvements in computer-aided diagnosis and automatic medical image analysis applied to such tasks as image segmentation, classification and registration...

INTRODUCTION: Physiology-guided deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery requires patients to be awake during a portion of the procedure, which may be poorly tolerated. Interventional MRI-guided (iMRI) DBS surgery was developed to use real-time image guidance, obviating the need for patients to be awake during lead placement. METHODS: All English-speaking adults with PD who underwent iMRI DBS between 2010 and 2014 at our Center were invited to participate. Subjects completed a structured interview that explored perioperative preferences and experiences...

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is being rapidly integrated for cancer treatments-such systems are referred to as MRI-guided radiation therapy (MRIgRT). As the magnet of an MRI scanner is always on, the presence of a strong static magnetic field from the MRI scanner during radiotherapy delivery presents new challenges. One of the challenges is that a personal radiation dosimeter used to estimate the radiation dose deposited in an individual wearing the device must be MR-safe. No such devices, however, are currently available...

BACKGROUND: The recent development of MRI-guided laser-induced thermal therapy (LITT) offers a minimally invasive alternative to craniotomies performed for tumor resection or for amygdalohippocampectomy to control seizure disorders. Current LITT therapies rely on linear stereotactic trajectories that mandate twist-drill entry into the skull and potentially long approaches traversing healthy brain. The use of robotically-driven, telescoping, curved needles has the potential to reduce procedure invasiveness by tailoring trajectories to the curved shape of the ablated structure and by enabling access through natural orifices...

Regional radiotherapy (RT) is increasingly used in breast-cancer treatment. Conventionally, computed tomography (CT) is performed for RT planning. Lymph node (LN) target levels are delineated according to anatomical boundaries. MRI could enable individual LN delineation. The purpose was to evaluate applicability of MRI for LN detection in supine treatment position, before and after sentinel-node biopsy (SNB). 23 female breast-cancer patients (cTis-3N0M0) underwent 1.5T MRI, before and after SNB, additional to CT...

Cancer multimodal treatment by combining the effects of different theranostics agents can efficiently improve treatment efficacy and reduce side effects. In this work, we demonstrate the theranostics nanodevices on the basis of Cu(2+)-loaded polydopamine nanoparticles (CuPDA NPs), which are able to offer magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided thermochemotherapy (TCT). Systematical studies reveal that after Cu(2+) ions loading, the molar extinction coefficient of PDA NPs is greatly enhanced by 4 times, thus improving the performance in photothermal therapy...

Radiotherapy is one of the treatment options for locally advanced prostate cancer; however, with standard radiation doses, it is not always very effective. One of the strategies to improve the efficiency of radiotherapy is increasing the dose. In this study, to increase tumor local control rates, a new radiotherapy method, known as dose painting (DP), was investigated. To compare 3-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT) and intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) plans with DP for prostate cancer. Twenty-four consecutive patients with locally advanced prostate cancer who underwent an multiparametric-magnetic resonance imaging (MP-MRI) (T2w, diffusion weighted image, dynamic contrast enhancement, and MRS) scan before a diagnostic biopsy from September 2015 to April 2016 were invited to take part in this study...

With the recent clinical implementation of real-time MRI guided x-ray beam therapy (MRXT), attention is therapy (MRPT). MRI guidance for proton beam therapy is expected to offer a compelling improvement to the turning to the concept of combining real-time MRI guidance with proton beam therapy; MRI guided proton beam current treatment workflow which is warranted arguably more than for x-ray beam therapy. This argument is born out of the fact that proton therapy toxicity outcomes are similar to that of the most advanced IMRT treatments, despite being a fundamentally superior particle for cancer treatment...
