PURPOSE: Prostate needle biopsy is a commonly performed procedure since it is the most definitive form of cancer diagnosis. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows target-specific biopsies to be performed. However, needle placements are often inaccurate due to intra-operative prostate motion and the lack of motion compensation techniques. This paper detects and determines the extent of tissue displacement during an MRI-guided biopsy so that the needle insertion plan can be adjusted accordingly. METHODS: A multi-slice-to-volume registration algorithm was developed to align the pre-operative planning image volume with three intra-operative orthogonal image slices of the prostate acquired immediately before needle insertion. The algorithm consists of an initial rigid transformation followed by a deformable step. RESULTS: A total of 14 image sets from 10 patients were studied. Based on prostate contour alignment, the registrations were accurate to within 2 mm. CONCLUSION: This algorithm can be used ...

Background Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), with or without MRI‐targeted biopsy, is an alternative test to systematic transrectal ultrasonography‐guided biopsy in men suspected of having prostate cancer. At present, evidence on which test to use is insufficient to inform detailed evidence‐based decision‐making.. Objectives To determine the diagnostic accuracy of the index tests MRI only, MRI‐targeted biopsy, the MRI pathway (MRI with or without MRI‐targeted biopsy) and systematic biopsy as compared to template‐guided biopsy as the reference standard in detecting clinically significant prostate cancer as the target condition, defined as International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) grade 2 or higher. Secondary target conditions were the detection of grade 1 and grade 3 or higher‐grade prostate cancer, and a potential change in the number of biopsy procedures.. Search methods We performed a comprehensive systematic literature search up to 31 July 2018. We ...

Screenshots of the UroNav platform during biopsy target acquisition and sampling are shown followed by an optional 12-core TRUS biopsy ...
Multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) and transperineal prostate biopsy in men with negative transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate biopsies,
Biopsy-the removal of cells or tissue for microscopic examination-has a long history in medicine. The first percutaneous needle biopsy of the liver was reported in 1923, and the technique developed into an invaluable diagnostic tool in many organ systems.. The development of computed tomography (CT), ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), allowed physicians to use advanced imaging guidance with biopsies. Imaging-guided percutaneous needle biopsies achieve greater precision in targeting lesions, resulting in high sensitivities and low complication rates.. For the study, researchers looked for biopsy trends in Medicare claims data from 1997 through 2008 for 10 anatomical regions. Biopsy procedures increased from 1,380 per 100,000 Medicare enrollees in 1997 to 1,945 biopsies in 2008, representing a compound annual growth rate of 3 percent. In 2008, 67 percent of all biopsies were performed percutaneously, compared to 59 percent in 1997.. "We also found that the use of imaging guidance ...
Postmortem computed tomography (pmCT) and pmCT angiography (pmCTA) provide a minimally invasive method to determine the cause of death. Postmortem image-guided biopsy allows for precise sampling of histological specimens. This case study describes the findings of lethal systemic fat embolism (FE) on whole-body unenhanced pmCT, pmCTA, and image-guided biopsy, with autopsy and histopathologic correlation. Unenhanced pmCT revealed a distinct fat level on top of sedimented layers of corpuscular blood particles and serum in the arterial system and pulmonary trunk. Subsequent pmCTA showed reproducible results, and image-guided biopsy confirmed fatal FE. pm CT/pmCTA combined with image-guided biopsy established the cause of death as right heart failure as a result of systemic fatal FE prior to autopsy. All imaging findings were consistent with traditional autopsy and histological specimens. This unique case demonstrates new imaging findings in massive, fatal FE and highlights that postmortem imaging, ...

You can read part 1 here.. Put the carrier in a sunbeam or other comfortable place.. If the cat is suspicious, and doesnt enter the carrier right away, toss in the treats, and walk away! Dont try to encourage or coax the cat into the carrier - - they will become suspicious, especially if they have had previous negative experiences with the carrier in the past. Do this every day to start with, and dont forget to walk away. Cats will soon eat the treats, first it may be when you arent watching. And most of them will start to spend time in the carrier.. Sense of Control: To protect themselves, cats want to have a sense of control over their environment. Cats are more secure if they have options to hide and the ability to monitor their environment from a higher place.. If instead of putting them on exam tables at the practice, we allow them to choose whether to be on the floor, in the carrier, or in another place, we will be much more successful in our goals for feline healthcare and reduction ...

The following three major strategies were evaluated: (a) standard transrectal ultrasonography (US)-guided biopsy; (b) diagnostic MR imaging followed by MR imaging-targeted biopsy, with no biopsy performed if MR imaging findings were negative; and © diagnostic MR imaging followed by MR imaging-targeted biopsy, with a standard biopsy performed when MR imaging findings were negative. The following three MR imaging-guided biopsy strategies were further evaluated in each MR imaging category: (a) biopsy with cognitive guidance, (b) biopsy with MR imaging/US fusion guidance, and © in-gantry MR imaging-guided biopsy. Model parameters were derived from the literature. The primary outcome measure was net health benefit (NHB), which was measured as quality-adjusted life-years (QALYs) gained or lost by investing resources in a new strategy compared with a standard strategy at a willingness-to-pay (WTP) threshold of ...
Purpose: Transrectal ultrasound guided biopsy is the gold standard for detecting prostate cancer but international reports suggest that increasing risks are associated with the procedure. We estimated incidence and risk factors for infection after prostate biopsy as well as 90-day mortality using a nationwide Swedish sample.. Material and Methods: We performed a population based study of 51,321 men from PCBaSe between 2006 and 2011. Primary outcome measures were dispensed prescriptions of antibiotics for urinary tract infection and hospitalization with a discharge diagnosis of urinary tract infection. Multivariable logistic regression was used to examine risk factors for infection in men who underwent prostate biopsy.. Results: During the 6 months before biopsy the background incidence of urinary tract infection was approximately 2%. Within 30 days after biopsy 6% of the men had a dispensed prescription for urinary tract antibiotics and 1% were hospitalized with infection. The strongest risk ...

Nowadays, the majority of biopsies performed in the hospital are carried out in the Radiology department. Most of these are performed with local anaesthesia on its own or with a combination of local anaesthetic and light sedation using midazolam. Only a very small proportion of image-guided biopsies require the use of deeper sedation with a combination of midazolam and fentanyl; a general anaesthetic is almost never necessary (usually only for very painful lesions, such as an osteoid osteoma of bone).. Biopsies are performed through tiny (less than 5 mm) incisions in most cases; sutures are not required. If the patient is expected to require sedation he or she is admitted as a day case, and discharged once the sedation has worn off. When the biopsy is performed under local anaesthetic only, the patient can go home immediately after the procedure.. There are two forms of biopsy that we commonly perform: fine needle aspiration (FNA) and core biopsy.. FNA involves the use of a small calibre (23 G ...

Malignant melanoma of the mandibular gingiva is extremely rare. It is a malignant tumour of melanocytes or their precursor cells, and often misinterpreted as a benign pigmented process. A few reports have described computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of malignant melanoma in the oral cavity. We report a rare case of malignant melanoma of the mandible and the related CT and MRI findings. Soft tissue algorithm contrast-enhanced CT showed an expansile mass and irregular destruction of alveolar bone in the right side of the mandibular molar area. MR images showed an enhancing mass and the tumour had a low to intermediate signal intensity and a high-signal intensity. Soft tissue algorithm contrast-enhanced CT and MR images showed lymphadenopathy involving the submandibular lymph nodes. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of malignant melanoma ...

Prostate Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Michael S. Leapman, M.D. 12/2015 What is a Prostate MRI? Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a method for visualizing soft tissue structures in the body. Images are generated by MRI scanners using magnetic fields instead of x-rays or other forms of radiation. When applied to imaging of the prostate, MRI offers advantages in identifying potentially significant aggressive prostate cancers and recent advances in technology also facilitate directlesion targeted biopsy. What is a Fusion Biopsy? Fusion MRI-ultrasound biopsy is a technique that overlays previously acquired MRI images of the prostate with real-time transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS) to allow clinicians to directly target suspicious areas identified on MRI. It combines ability to target in real-time ultrasound with the more detailed MR images to allow for a more accurate diagnosis of prostate cancer. The technique involves acquisition of the MR images that are reviewed by experienced radiologists ...
My research proceeds from the idea that the foundation of mental health and mental illness is social; thus mental health care must include attention to the patient (or client) as a person living in society and in relationship with others. In the 1990s I studied mental health outreach to people who are homeless (outreach work). In outreach work, clinicians leave their offices to find, make contact, and build trust with people who, often, are avoiding contact with mental health professionals due to their previous negative experiences with them. Outreach workers move at the clients pace, gradually introducing a range of services including primary care, access to entitlement income, and housing, hoping eventually to persuade people to accept mental health care. While the encounters between homeless people and outreach workers are clinical encounters, I see them, also, as social encounters taking place at the psychological, socioeconomic, and physical boundaries of society. These social encounters ...
From hazard mitigation and strategic planning to the urgent deployment of resources in response to major disasters, public safety comprises a major component of local, state and federal government administration. Response to natural disasters like Superstorm Sandy on the Atlantic coast, wildfires in the west or implications of potentially harmful virus outbreaks all present unique and unpredictable challenges to police, fire, EMS and military agencies at all levels. Acts of terror, such as the Charleston Church Massacre and Orlando nightclub shootings, challenge our efforts to prevent danger, minimize its effects and respond efficiently and effectively when necessary. Security is not just a federal responsibility; local and state agencies share responsibility. Noble public administrators are entrusted to protect and serve citizens on a daily basis. But what are the public administration implications when such trust is compromised by previous negative community relationships, civil protest and ...
Background Prostate cancer (PCa) diagnosis by means of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) is a current challenge for the development of computer-aided detection (CAD) tools. An innovative CAD-software (Watson Elementary (TM)) was proposed to achieve high sensitivity and specificity, as well as to allege a correlate to Gleason grade. Aim/Objective To assess the performance of Watson Elementary (TM) in automated PCa diagnosis in our hospitals database of MRI-guided prostate biopsies. Methods The evaluation was retrospective for 104 lesions (47 PCa, 57 benign) from 79, 64.61 +/- 6.64 year old patients using 3T T2-weighted imaging, Apparent Diffusion Coefficient (ADC) maps and dynamic contrast enhancement series. Watson Elementary (TM) utilizes signal intensity, diffusion properties and kinetic profile to compute a proportional Gleason grade predictor, termed Malignancy Attention Index (MAI). The analysis focused on (i) the CAD sensitivity and specificity to classify suspect lesions ...

Induced pluripotent stem cell-derived neural stem cells (iNSCs) have significant potential as an autologous, multifunctional cell therapy for stroke, which is the primary cause of long term disability in the United States and the second leading cause of death worldwide. Here we show that iNSC transplantation improves recovery through neuroprotective, regenerative, and cell replacement mechanisms in a novel ischemic pig stroke model. Longitudinal multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) following iNSC therapy demonstrated reduced changes in white matter integrity, cerebral blood perfusion, and brain metabolism in the infarcted tissue. The observed tissue level recovery strongly correlated with decreased immune response, enhanced neuronal protection, and increased neurogenesis. iNSCs differentiated into neurons and oligodendrocytes with indication of long term integration. The robust recovery response to iNSC therapy in a translational pig stroke model with increased predictive potential ...

Imaging techniques, mainly mpMRI, have developed as an accurate modality in PCa detection. Lesions identified on mpMRI correlate with tumor location on radical prostatectomy specimens [21]. Real-time fusion of mpMRI and TRUS images of the prostate is feasible and potentially able to identify cancerous regions for subsequent biopsy. This kind of biopsy can be performed using MRI localization information without requiring the cost, difficulties, or inconvenience of an MRI suite or MRI-compatible equipment. This double center prospective study evaluated the impact of real time free-hand transperineal targeted prostate biopsy guided by MRI-TRUS fusion imaging and made comparisons of biopsy performance between TB and traditional 12-core SB in Chinese men with prior negative biopsy sessions.. Our study indicated that PCa detection rate of TB and SB was 30.7 and 26.7% respectively, while the overall rate increased to 40.6% when combined the two approaches. With a mean of only 16.2 biopsies, we achieved ...

51 NCCN Guidelines for Patients ® Prostate Cancer, Version 1.2016 5 Treatment guide: Initial treatment Low risk each year and others do them based on test results. Examples of such test results include a rise in PSA level or change in DRE. A decision to do a repeat biopsy should balance the potential benefits and risks. Risks include infection and other side effects. If 10 or more cores were removed, the next biopsy may be done within 18 to 24 months of diagnosis. If youre likely to live less than 10 years or are older than 75 years of age, repeat prostate biopsies are rarely needed. A prostate biopsy may be done under the guidance of MRI images combined with real-time ultrasound images. This type of biopsy is called MRI-US fusion biopsy and may help detect higher-grade cancers. Higher-grade cancers include those with Gleason score 7 through 10. The use of mpMRI may help to assess whether the cancer is still low risk. Your doctor may suspect that the cancer is in the front part of your ...

Objectives: Advances in multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) and ultrasound/MRI fusion imaging offer a powerful alternative to the typical undirected approach to diagnosing prostate cancer. However, these methods require the time and expertise needed to interpret mpMRI image scenes. In this paper, a machine learning framework for automatically detecting and localizing cancerous lesions within the prostate is developed and evaluated. Methods: Two studies were performed to gather MRI and pathology data. The 12 patients in the first study underwent an MRI session to obtain structural, diffusion-weighted, and dynamic contrast enhanced image vol- umes of the prostate, and regions suspected of being cancerous from the MRI data were manually contoured by radiologists. Whole-mount slices of the prostate were obtained for the patients in the second study, in addition to structural and diffusion-weighted MRI data, for pathology verification. A 3-D feature set for voxel-wise appear- ance ...

In this chapter, we study the effect of nonholonomic constraints on the behavior of robotic systems. These constraints arise in systems such as multifingered robot hands and wheeled mobile robots, where rolling contact is involved, as well as in systems where angular momentum is conserved. We discuss the problem of determining when constraints on the velocities of the configuration variables of a robotic system are integrable, and illustrate the problem in a variety of different situations. The emphasis of this chapter is on the basic tools needed to analyze nonholonomic systems and the application of those tools to problems in robotic manipulation. These tools are drawn both from some basic theorems in differential geometry and from nonlinear control theory. ...

Doctors order biopsies to examine tissue or cells when theyre concerned about a problem (such as an infection, inflammation, or cancer) in an organ.
Most prostate cancers are detected with a standard transrectal biopsy. However, some patients PSA levels continue to rise, even though they had a negative office biopsy.. Fortunately, Chicago Prostate Cancer Center has developed stereotactic transperineal prostate biopsy or STPB. This technique is able to detect 40% more cancer than the standard office procedure. The patient is put under general anesthesia and the biopsy samples are taken through the perineum. The advantage to this technique, is that samples can be taken systematically from all parts of the prostate. In addition, there is no discomfort to the patient during the biopsy and it is done on an outpatient basis, so the patient can resume normal activities within a day.. Chicago Prostate Cancer Center is pleased to offer STPB to its patients. "Right from the first phone call I received to schedule my biopsy, I had an outstanding experience with all CPCC staff members. Everyone was efficient, helpful and extremely friendly. I have ...
A.. Kathy Arthurson, A/Professor, Neighbourhoods, Housing and Health Research Unit, Flinders University, Adelaide, AUSTRALIA. Policies for Achieving Healthy, Just and Sustainable Australian Cities: Planning for Urban Diversity. This paper presents the findings of an Australian Research Council funded project that investigated inclusionary planning policies for creating urban diversity, promoting a mix of affordable housing, private ownership and rental housing in inner city Melbourne, Australia. The research examined numerous questions, including whether re-configuring urban diversity through urban renewal had positive effects in terms of contributing to residents well-being and modifying the previous negative neighbourhood reputation. In the analysis we conceptualise neighbourhood reputation as a critical factor that impacts on residents well-being and social inclusion. The paper sets out the mixed method research, which included a quantitative survey of residents and in-depth qualitative ...
The European Randomized Study of Screening for Prostate Cancer (ERSPC) showed a significant prostate cancer mortality reduction in the screening group of 21% after a median follow-up of 11 years, and of 29% in screened men when adjusted for selection bias. However, PSA screening is associated with considerable unfavorable effects. In the ERSPC screening group, cumulative incidence of prostate cancer was 7.4%, versus 5.1% in the control group. A proportion of the screen-detected tumors (10-56%) would never have led to clinical symptoms but these over-diagnosed cancers are frequently treated with associated risks of adverse effects. Furthermore, because of a long lead-time, estimated 5-12 years, men have to live longer with those effects. Two specific studies on quality of life after prostate cancer treatment have been performed for men participating in Rotterdam and Sweden. Pre-operatively 1-2% of the men were incontinent and 31-40% impotent. After 18-52 months 6-16% of the radical prostatectomy ...
This updated course addresses advanced imaging techniques and the fundamentals of stereotactic breast biopsy. The morning portion will focus on advanced imaging techniques that can be used to provide patients with both early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. The course will include a clear management strategy in screening the patient with the dense/complex breast and/or high-risk. Standard and emerging imaging modalities (3D Tomo, whole breast ultrasound, abbreviated MRI) will be explored. There will be an in-depth mammography interpretation primer to better understand micro-calcifications and other indications for image-guided biopsy. Pathologic dilemmas in dealing with indeterminate and high-risk lesions will be addressed. The final 4 hours of the program will address stereotactic breast procedures, including detailed lectures on the procedure, problem solving, certification tips, and a hands-on workshop.. This course may be taken as a half-day morning or as a full day for those ...
HCC-related mortality can be reduced by prevention of the acquisition of risk factors (such as viral infection, excessive alcohol intake, or obesity) or by achieving its early detection with application of potentially curative treatment such as resection, liver transplantation, and ablation. In all instances, the smaller the HCC at diagnosis, the higher the likelihood of long-term success after therapy. Accordingly, the goal of screening programs in the population at risk (namely, patients with cirrhosis of any etiology) is to detect and treat HCC at an early stage and, specifically, when it has not grown ,2 cm in diameter. Although tumor marker (alfa fetoprotein) determination is not useful for this purpose (Aliment Pharmacol Ther 2009;30:37-47), US is able to detect such small nodules. The critical point at that time is how to confirm diagnosis before treatment indication. Image-guided biopsy is known to have a relevant rate of false negatives and, in addition, is associated with risks of ...

April 24, 2014 - The global biopsy devices market value will increase at a modest rate over the coming years, climbing from $506.4 million in 2013 to $602.4 million by 2019, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.93%, forecasts research and consulting firm GlobalData.. According to the companys latest report, MediPoint: Biopsy Devices - Global Analysis and Market Forecasts, the biopsy devices market in emerging economies, such as China, India and Brazil, will increase at much higher CAGRS than the global rate, reaching shares of 24%, 10% and 6% by 2019, respectively.. Despite the modest global growth, several barriers are dampening the potential adoption of biopsy devices within a number of markets. Notably in the United States, reimbursement for image-guided breast biopsies has undergone drastic cuts, which GlobalData expects will have a significant effect on the adoption of more expensive vacuum-assisted biopsy (VAB) devices.. Joseph Gregory, GlobalDatas analyst covering surgical ...

In the linked study (doi:10.1136/bmj.d7894), Rosario and colleagues assess the effects of transrectal ultrasound guided prostate biopsy in primary and secondary healthcare on patient reported outcomes.1. Transrectal ultrasound guided prostate biopsy is the core means but also the core problem of diagnosing prostate cancer. New and old serum markers, such as prostate specific antigen and its isoforms p2PSA and benign prostatic hyperplasia associated PSA,2 and improved imaging techniques based on fusion of images guided by transrectal ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging, will certainly optimise patient selection, thus improving specificity (by reducing the number of men undergoing unnecessary biopsy procedures). However, the entire process is handicapped by an ailing biopsy procedure, which has changed little since the introduction of Stameys sextant biopsy technique.. Most of todays research aims to identify new and better serum markers for prostate cancer.3 The main concern is that most ...
