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

    University dissertation from Division of Urological Cancers

    Author : Henrik Kjölhede; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate cancer; Metastases; PET CT; Choline; Fluoride; Sentinel lymph nodes;

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE

  2. 2. Multimodal sentinel lymph node imaging using nanoscale-tailored particles; The importance of particle size

    University dissertation from Department of Medical Radiation Physics, Clinical Sciences, Lund, Lund University

    Author : Pontus Kjellman; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; multimodal contrast agent; USPIO; sentinel lymph node; in vivo; EL-4 tumor;

    Abstract : As a cancer grows it will, at a certain stage of disease progression, start spreading in the body. For several types of cancer this spreading will first occur through the lymphatic system and the first place where metastatic cell will be encountered is the first lymph node that drains the area where the tumor is located.

  3. 3. Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) as a multimodality imaging probe for sentinel nodes : Design and Preclinical Evaluation

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Medical Radiation Physics

    Author : Renata Madru; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2018-04]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; iron oxide; nanoparticles; SPIONs; PET-MRI; SPECT-MRI; SPECT-MRI- optical imaging; sentinel lymph node; SNL;

    Abstract : Breast cancer and malignant melanoma disseminate through the lymphatic system and the first metastases arise in one or two regional, sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) draining the primary tumour site. Therefore, identification and characterization of the SLNs is of major importance for cancer staging and for choice of therapy in patients. READ MORE

  4. 4. Nuclear medicine imaging of breast cancer and regional lymph nodes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Center for Surgical Sciences CFSS

    Author : Rimma Danielsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; breast neoplasm; scintimammography; diagnostic accuracy; triple diagnosis; axillary lymph node metastases;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to explore the role of nuclear medicine in diagnosis of primary breast carcinoma and regional lymph node involvement. The introduction includes a review over nuclear medicine techniques currently under investigation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Predictors of Lymph Node Metastasis in Primary Breast Cancer - Risk Models for Tailored Axillary Management

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Looket Dihge; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Breast Cancer; Axillary lymph node dissection; Sentinel lymph node biopsy; Ultrasonography; Nomogram; Artificial neural network; Gene Expression; Prediction model;

    Abstract : Most patients with breast cancer present with low-risk tumors, node-negative disease, and excellent prognosis. For these patients, routine axillary nodal staging by sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) has no therapeutic benefit. For patients with limited sentinel lymph node metastasis, completion axillary nodal dissection is controversial. READ MORE
