  1. 1. Pathogenetic Mechanisms in Soft Tissue Tumors

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Elsa Arbajian; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Soft tissue tumors; Sarcomas; Gene fusions; SNP array; Next generation sequencing; Haploidization; Point mutations;

    Abstract : Soft tissue tumors (STT) constitute a heterogeneous group of tumors that arise in tissues of mesenchymal origin. They are currently classified according to morphology and resemblance to normal tissue into over 100 subtypes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Imaging of soft tissue tumors

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Surgical Science

    Author : Hildur Einarsdóttir; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Abstract The aim of this project on soft tissue tumors, was to evaluate existing imaging methods and test new Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) sequences for diagnosis and assessment of cytotoxic therapy and to relate the imaging studies to cytology to explore the limitations of each procedure. Patients and method The studies were based on patients with a soft tissue lesion diagnosed and treated at the Orthopedic Tumor Service at the Karolinska Hospital 1990-2003. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genetic Profiling in Soft Tissue Sarcoma

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine Doctoral Dissertation

    Author : Princy Francis; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; oncology; synovial sarcoma; prognosis; Cytology; SS18-SSX; intratumor heterogeneity; aCGH; array comparative genomic hybridization; gene expression analysis; microarray; cDNA; Soft tissue sarcoma; cancerology; Cytologi; onkologi; cancer;

    Abstract : Soft tissue sarcomas (STS) are a heterogeneous group of highly malignant mesenchymal tumors that account for ~1% of all malignancies. Frequent heterogeneity and pleomorphism along with suboptimal diagnostic reproducibility and insufficient prognostic markers make clinical management of these tumors difficult. READ MORE

  4. 4. Soft Tissue Sarcoma Patterns multiplicity, heterogeneity and growth characteristics

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Josefin Fernebro; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cancerology; Cytologi; oncology; Soft tissue sarcoma; tumor periphery; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Medicin människa och djur ; Cytology; multiple primary tumors; onkologi; cancer;

    Abstract : Soft tissue sarcomas (STS) represent a group of rare and heterogenous tumors that optimally should be diagnosed and treated within multidisciplinary teams. This thesis has studied various aspects ? pathological, genetical, and clinical ? of STS. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fine needle aspiration diagnosis of spindle cell tumors of soft tissue, including the use of ancillary methods, and correlation with clinical data

    University dissertation from Department of Patology & Cytology Lund University Hospital 221 85 Lund Sweden

    Abstract : Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is gaining increased popularity in the diagnosis of soft tissue lesions. FNAC used as a primary examination method to obtain a morphologic diagnosis, has been part of the diagnostic work-up of patients admitted to the Musculoskeletal Tumor Center of the Lund University Hospital since 1972.
