    Keywords : Colon; Rectum; Computed tomography; Three-dimensional imaging; Colorectal neoplasms; Colonic polyps; Colonoscopy; Acceptance testing; Incidental findings; Diagnostic accuracy;

    Abstract : The aim was to evaluate diagnostic potential, technical performance, and patient acceptance of CT colonography when used for detection of colorectal polyps and cancer in symptomatic patients with a high risk of colorectal neoplasia.Methods: After bowel preparation, 111 symptomatic patients underwent CT colonography followed by conventional colonoscopy.

    Abstract : The PET-CT imaging modality is based on positron emission tomography combined with computed tomography. Before a PET-CT examination, a radioactive tracer (also called a radiopharmaceutical) is intravenously injected into the patient. PET technology images the distribution of this tracer element by detecting the decay. READ MORE

  3. 3. Interpretation of diagnostic information given patient characteristics

    Author : Martin Gellerstedt; Hans Åhlfeldt; Sweden The Sahlgrenska Academy at Göteborg University Institute of Biomedicine; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; reference values; diagnostic theory; diagnostic tests; partitioning; prevalence function;

    Abstract :  The aim with this thesis was to describe, exemplify and develop theory for reference values and diagnostic tests, especially focusing on the variability between individuals. To facilitate interpretation of medical information it is common to establish some kind of limit. There are several different rationales for the choice of such a limit. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fetal Anomalies : Surveillance and Diagnostic Accuracy of Ultrasound and Magnetic Resonance Imaging

    Author : Hashem Amini; Ove Axelsson; Johan Wikström; Pelle Lindqvist; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pregnancy termination; fetal anomalies; antenatal diagnosis; ultrasound; second trimester; fetal MRI; CNS anomalies; pregnancy management; non-CNS anomalies; fetal autopsy; birth defects registry; ascertainment; spina bifida; cleft lip palate; Obstetrics and women s diseases; Obstetrik och kvinnosjukdomar; Obstetrics and gynaecology; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Abstract : The aims were to investigate the accuracy of ultrasound in diagnosis of structural fetal anomalies with special focus on false positive findings (I), to evaluate the additional value of second trimester fetal MRI on pregnancy management (II-III) and to estimate the ascertainment in the Swedish Birth Defects Registry and incidence of spina bifida and cleft lip/palate (IV). Retrospectively, 328 fetal autopsies were identified where pregnancies were terminated due to ultrasonographically diagnosed fetal anomalies. READ MORE
