  • 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)
  • As a result, it is recommended that all multiphasic malignant lung tumors (i.e. those with more than one histological pattern) that are found to contain any proportion of SCLC cells should be classified as c-SCLC, and not as combined forms of any of the other histological variants present in the tumor. (wikipedia.org)
  • In right middle lobe syndrome, the middle lobe of the right lung contracts, usually because of pressure on the bronchus from enlarged lymph glands and occasionally a tumor. (wikipedia.org)
  • Aside from the great heterogeneity seen in lung cancers (especially those occurring among tobacco smokers), the considerable variability in diagnostic and sampling techniques used in medical practice, the high relative proportion of individuals with suspected GCCL who do not undergo complete surgical resection, and the near-universal lack of complete sectioning and pathological examination of resected tumor specimens prevent high levels of quantitative accuracy. (wikipedia.org)
  • pleura
  • Protecting each lung is the pleura, a two-layered membrane that envelops the lung and contains lubricating fluid between its inner and outer layers. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • It occurs when either local or generalized fibrotic changes in the lung or pleura hamper expansion and increase elastic recoil during expiration. (wikipedia.org)
  • In rounded atelectasis (Folded lung or Blesovsky syndrome), an outer portion of the lung slowly collapses as a result of scarring and shrinkage of the membrane layers covering the lungs (pleura), which would show as visceral pleural thickening and entrapment of lung tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • histological
  • These variants are increasingly appreciated as having different genetic, biological, and clinical properties, including prognoses and responses to treatment regimens, and therefore, that correct and consistent histological classification of lung cancers are necessary to validate and implement optimum management strategies. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • The lungs are made of elastic tissue filled with interlacing networks of tubes and sacs carrying air, and with blood vessels carrying blood. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Malignant neoplasms of ectopic tissue are to be coded to the site mentioned, e.g., ectopic pancreatic malignant neoplasms are coded to pancreas, unspecified ( C25.9 ). (icd10data.com)
  • Although frequently described as a collapse of lung tissue, atelectasis is not synonymous with a pneumothorax, which is a more specific condition that features atelectasis. (wikipedia.org)
  • This growth can spread beyond the lung by the process of metastasis into nearby tissue or other parts of the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • lymphoma
  • Other side effects may include liver disease, lung disease, lymphoma, and severe skin rashes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other disease states that increase the risk of developing tuberculosis are Hodgkin lymphoma, end-stage renal disease, chronic lung disease, malnutrition, and alcoholism. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
  • pulmonary
  • In an American study of a database of over 60,000 lung cancers, GCCL comprised between 0.3% and 0.4% of primary pulmonary malignancies, with an age-adjusted incidence rate of about 3 new cases per million persons per year. (wikipedia.org)
  • lobe
  • Direct signs of atelectasis include displacement of interlobar fissures and mobile structures within the thorax, overinflation of the unaffected ipsilateral lobe or contralateral lung, and opacification of the collapsed lobe. (wikipedia.org)
  • chest
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • pleural
  • The lungs are surrounded by an airtight compartment, the pleural space within the pleural membrane. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • It is usually associated with accumulation of blood, fluid, or air within the pleural cavity, which mechanically collapses the lung. (wikipedia.org)
  • Breast
  • For multiple neoplasms of the same site that are not contiguous, such as tumors in different quadrants of the same breast, codes for each site should be assigned. (icd10data.com)
  • approximately
  • With approximately 220,000 total lung cancers diagnosed in the US each year, the proportion suggests that approximately 660 and 880 new cases are diagnosed in Americans annually. (wikipedia.org)
  • tumors
  • The study has currently met its primary end point and is now recruiting patients to be treated at the RD expansion cohort of selected tumor types, specifically: endometrial adenocarcinomas, neuroendocrine tumors, and small-cell lung cancer (SCLC). (careacross.com)
  • Play media A 1972 study compared neoplasms in "Sprague-Dawley" rats from six different commercial suppliers and found highly significant differences in the incidences of endocrine and mammary tumors. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • A neoplasm or tumor is a group of cells that have undergone unregulated growth and will often form a mass or lump, but may be distributed diffusely. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some scientists have identified these mutations as deletions in the mitochondrial DNA of Hürthle cells found in neoplasms and Hashimoto's thyroiditis. (wikipedia.org)
