  1. 1. Detecting prostate cancer metastases - PET/CT and the sentinel node technique

    Författare :Henrik Kjölhede; Malmö Urologisk cancerforskning; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate cancer; Metastases; PET CT; Choline; Fluoride; Sentinel lymph nodes;

    Sammanfattning : Prostate cancer is one of the most common malignancies. Its treatment is highly dependent on the presence or absence of metastases. The available invasive and non-invasive modalities for detecting metastases are imperfect. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Colorectal Cancer Liver Metastases : Effects of Chemotherapy on Liver Parenchyma and Resections

    Författare :Jozef Urdzik; Agneta Norén; Per Hellman; James O Garden; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Current multimodal treatment of colorectal cancer liver metastasis often combines liver resections with preoperative chemotherapy with a 5-year survival of 40-50%. Preoperative chemotherapy includes conversion of initially non-resectable situation and control of micrometastatic disease. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Colorectal Liver Metastases. Aspects on Diagnosis and Surgical Treatment

    Författare :Björn O B Ohlsson; Lund Kirurgi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; carcinoembryonic antigen; fine-needle aspiration cytology; intraoperative ultrasonography; computed tomography; dearterialization; liver resection; Colorectal cancer; liver metastases; follow-up; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Sammanfattning : Liver is the most common site of dissemination in colorectal cancer, and untreated liver metastases are associated with a poor prognosis. The main reason for trying to detect liver metastases early is that liver resection offers a chance for cure in selected patients. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Colorectal and appendiceal peritoneal metastases : From population studies to genetics

    Författare :Malin Enblad; Helgi Birgisson; Wilhelm Graf; Peter Matthiessen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Peritoneal metastases; Peritoneal carcinomatosis; Pseudomyxoma peritonei; Colorectal cancer; Appendiceal cancer; Cytoreductive surgery; HIPEC; Appendicitis;

    Sammanfattning : Peritoneal dissemination of colorectal and appendiceal origin was previously considered the end-stage of malignant disease. Today, treatment with cytoreductive surgery (CRS) in combination with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) has prolonged survival and cured some patients with peritoneal metastases (PM).

  5. 5. Diagnosis and evaluation of therapeutic response of bone metastases

    Författare :Ipek Çiray; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; Bone metastases; breast neoplasm; MR imaging; CT; diagnosis; therapy evaluation; Onkologi; Oncology; Onkologi; diagnostisk radiologi; Diagnostic Radiology;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this study was to investigate different aspects of different imaging modalities in the diagnosis of bone metastases and in the assessment of their response to therapy. The role of CT, with and without clinical information, was investigated as compared to CT-guided bone biopsy in the evaluation of suspected bone metastases. LÄS MER
