Radiotherapy, particularly the target delineation of cancer based on scanned images, plays a key role in the planning of cancer treatment. Recently, diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) has emerged as a prospective superior procedure compared with intensified computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET) in the target delineation of cancer. However, the implication of DW-MRI in lung cancer, the leading cause of cancer-associated mortality worldwide, has not been extensively evaluated...

With the expansion of immunotherapy in the treatment of lung cancer, clinicians have to face new clinical pictures and adapt their practice. We report the case of a 69-year-old man diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer using endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) and treated with nivolumab as second-line therapy. After 8 injections of nivolumab, a new CT and PET scan revealed massive growth and increase in metabolism of hilar and mediastinal lymph nodes, whereas the size and metabolism of the left upper lobe lesion were reduced...

OBJECTIVES: Role of 18-FDG PET/CT had been well established in other more prevalent malignancies such as colorectal and lung cancer; however, this is not as well defined in cholangiocarcinoma. Literature focusing on the prognostic values of preoperative PET/CT for resectable cholangiocarcinoma is scarce. METHOD: This is a retrospective cohort of 66 consecutive patients who had received curative resection for cholangiocarcinoma from 2010 to 2015. All patients had preoperative 18-FDG PET/CT performed...

Considering the general application of dedicated small-animal positron emission tomography/computed tomography is limited, an acceptable alternative in many situations might be clinical PET/CT. To estimate the feasibility of using clinical PET/CT with [F-18]-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose for high-resolution dynamic imaging and quantitative analysis of cancer xenografts in nude mice. Dynamic clinical PET/CT scans were performed on xenografts for 60 min after injection with [F-18]-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose. Scans were reconstructed with or without SharpIR method in two phases...

Programmed cell death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression is commonly observed in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The prognostic value of PD-L1 expression and the maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) on 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography ((18)FDG-PET) in surgical pulmonary squamous cell carcinoma(SCC)remains unclear. Furthermore, the correlation between the SUVmax and PD-L1 expression has not been assessed. Thus, the purpose of this study was to investigate the correlation between PD-L1 expression and the SUVmax on (18)FDG-PET and to examine the prognostic significance of PD-L1 expression and the SUVmax in surgical pulmonary SCC...

Adrenocortical carcinoma is a rare cancer, with estimate population incidence of 0.7-2.0 cases per 1 million each year. It also carries poor prognosis with estimated 5-year survival of less than 15% of those with metastatic disease and has a poor response to cytotoxic treatment. A randomized controlled trial published in 2012 by Fassnacht et al. demonstrated improved progression-free survival with first-line etoposide-doxirubicin-cisplatin-mitotane (EDP-M) compared to first-line streptozocin-mitotane in patients with stage III-IV disease...

Small intestine intussusception in adults is a rare condition mainly caused by primary or metastatic small intestine malignancy. Here, we present a 72-year-old male patient who was diagnosed with small intestine cancer that was presented as small intestine intussusception on hybrid (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT). The patient was initially referred for an abnormality on a chest radiography and severe anemia. FDG PET/CT showed the lung lesion in the right upper lobe of lung as a high FDG uptake mass...

Renal metastasis of thyroid cancer is extremely rare. We report the case of a 62-year-old woman with Hürthle cell thyroid cancer (HCTC) with lungs, bones, and bilateral kidneys metastases. The renal metastatic lesions were clearly demonstrated by (131)I whole body scan (WBS) with SPECT/CT. However, they exhibited false-negative results in (18)F-FDG PET/CT, kidney ultrasonography, and contrast-enhanced CT scan. The findings imply that tumors have low glucose metabolism and are able to accumulate radioiodine, which is not commonly found in the relatively aggressive nature of HCTC...

OBJECTIVES: Previously published studies showed that the standard tumor-to-blood standardized uptake value (SUV) ratio (SUR) was a more accurate prognostic method than tumor maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax). This study evaluated and compared prognostic value of positron emission tomography (PET) parameters and normalized value of PET parameters by blood pool SUV in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients who received curative surgery. METHODS: Seventy-seven patients who underwent curative resection for NSCLC between January 2010 to December 2013 were enrolled in this study...

New developments in breast cancer radiotherapy make possible new standards in treatment recommandations based on international guidelines. Developments in radiotherapy irradiation techniques from 2D to 3D-Conformal RT and to IMRT (Intensity Modulated Arc Therapy) make possible to reduce the usual side effects on the organs at risk as: skin, lung, miocard, bone, esophagus and brahial plexus. Dispite of all these progresses acute and late side effects are present. Side effects are as old as the radiotherapy was used...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Standard nodal staging of lung cancer consists of positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT), followed by endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) if PET/CT shows mediastinal lymphadenopathy. Sensitivity of EBUS-TBNA in patients with N0/N1 disease by PET/CT is unclear and largely based on retrospective studies. We assessed the sensitivity of EBUS-TBNA in this setting. METHODS: We enrolled patients with proven or suspected lung cancer staged as N0/N1 by PET/CT and without metastatic disease (M0), who underwent staging EBUS-TBNA...

BACKGROUND: Most solid tumors contain inadequately oxygenated (i.e., hypoxic) regions, which tend to be more aggressive and treatment resistant. Hypoxia PET allows visualization of hypoxia and may enable treatment adaptation. However, hypoxia PET imaging is expensive, time-consuming and not widely available. We aimed to predict hypoxia levels in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) using more easily available imaging modalities: FDG-PET/CT and dynamic contrast-enhanced CT (DCE-CT). MATERIAL AND METHODS: For 34 NSCLC patients, included in two clinical trials, hypoxia HX4-PET/CT, planning FDG-PET/CT and DCE-CT scans were acquired before radiotherapy...
