  • tumor
  • Investigate predictive models for long-term tumor control and late treatment lung toxicity by using FDG-PET-CT, V/Q SPECT-CT and blood test during the course of radiation therapy. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Quantitative MR diffusion imaging provides delineation of viable lung tumor and exhibits excellent correspondence with PET imaging. (ismrm.org)
  • primary
  • A primary malignant neoplasm that overlaps two or more contiguous (next to each other) sites should be classified to the subcategory/code .8 ('overlapping lesion'), unless the combination is specifically indexed elsewhere. (icd10data.com)
  • parenchyma
  • The evaluation of low-intensity reduction in the compliance of the lung parenchyma (LIRCLP) can, we believe, give early diagnostic signs from a few months to two or more years before the time at which diagnosis can be made today from chest radiograms or CT scan of the chest in a significant number of cases of secondary lung neoplasm. (semanticscholar.org)
  • pneumothorax
  • Relief of pneumothorax and collapse of the lung from accumulations of either air or fluids within the pleural space may be provided by aspiration of the air or fluid from the thoracic cavity ( thoracentesis ) or by insertion of chest tubes to provide for a gradual reexpansion of the lung. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • patients
  • Patients referred to our institution for lung RFA are evaluated clinically by a nurse practitioner and a radiologist with experience in RFA. (appliedradiology.com)
  • chest wall
  • The external intercostal muscles provide flexibility to the thoracic cage and allow more room for lung expansion by elevating the anterior end of each rib, thereby increasing the anterior-posterior diameter of the chest wall. (thefreedictionary.com)
