Ultrasound is a good tool for theranostics due to have multi-potency both of diagnostics with sonography and therapeutics with high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). In addition, microbubbles and nanobubbles are utilized as not only contrast imaging agent but also enhancer of drug and gene delivery by combination of ultrasound. Recently, we developed novel liposomal nanobubbles (Bubble liposomes) which were containing perfluoropropane. Bubble liposomes induced jet stream by low intensity ultrasound exposure and resulted in enhancing permeability of cell membrane...

INTRODUCTION: Thermal ablation is a well established treatment option for the management small renal masses. Increasingly, renal ablation is performed via a percutaneous approach. However, most urologists are not formally trained in image-based deployment of ablation needles. To address this need, we created a novel training model to teach urologists to perform precise and accurate percutaneous needle placement. This teaching model was implemented as part of a recent training course on tissue ablation organized by the American Urological Association...

We propose a system for detection of overproduction of protein kinase MAK-V/Hunk in tumours. MAK-V/ Hunk overproduction is observed in about 50% breast carcinomas. Positive staining is obseved in tumour cells only and has mainly cytoplasmic characteristics. Increased production of MAK-V/Hunk does not correlate with histological type of carcinoma, metastasizing, steroid receptor status (estrogen and progesterone), proliferative activity. Tumours positive for MAK-V/ Hunk were more frequently observed in c-erbB2-positive (3+) tumours than in c-erbB2-negative ones...

To estimate and compare the awakening period following 4 different anaesthetic techniques (enflurane and halothane and two intraveinous anaesthetic substances: propanidide and althesin), the authors examined 120 outpatients who had undergone maxillo-facial surgery distributed over 4 sample groups of 30 each. A statistical analysis of the responses to psycho-dianostic tests has not enabled the authors to decide which anaesthetic ambulatory technique is preferable.

The results of a further trial of a clinical dianostic index (CDI) for ill-defined mammary nodules, based on the algebrical results of positive numerical values (for a suspect feature), or negative numerical values (for non suspect feature), attributed to 10 characteristic semeiological features, previously described, are reported. 222 nodules were clinically examined, all subsequently subjected to mammography and 188 of them to thermography; they were then operated and examined histologically. Of 106 malignant nodules the accuracy of the CDI was 88...
