[Radiologic imaging in the diagnosis and follow up of malignant lymphomas]

[Certain viral infections, gene mutations and immune suppression are likely to play some role in the development of malignant lymphomas. The clinical stage at the time of diagnosis is a decisive factor of prognosis. The evaluation of the nodal and extranodal manifestation of the disease is performed by standardized imaging techniques. Most frequent extranodal manifestation involves the bone marrow, the lung and the gastrointestinal tract. Different imaging techniques are indispensable in monitoring the effectiveness of the treatment and in long term follow up.]

[Pelvic computed tomography in staging of prostate cancer before surgery]

BERCZI Csaba, TÓTH György, VARGA Attila, FLASKÓ Tibor, KOLLÁR József, TÓTH Csaba

[PURPOSE - The aim of the study was to measure the sensitivity and specificity of computed tomography for local staging in patients underwent radical perineal prostatectomy. PATIENTS AND METHODS - 160 patients were involved in the study. Rectal digital examination, measurement of prostate specific antigen, prostate biopsy, CT, ultrasound, chest X-ray examination and bone scintigraphy were performed in every case before radical prostatectomy. RESULTS - The average preoperative prostate specific antigen concentration was 15.8 ng/ml before surgery. The average Gleason score of biopsies was 3.19. CT showed extraprostatic infiltration in 14 patients (pericapsular invasion n: 6, seminal vesicula n: 3, bladder infiltration n: 5, lymph node metastasis n: 2). The histological examination proved extraprostatic invasion of the tumour in 35 cases (pericapsular invasion n: 35, seminal vesicula n: 25, bladder infiltration n: 5). The cancer was localized in the prostate in 125 patients. Sensitivity and specificity of CT for pericapsular invasion were 14% and 98%, for infiltration of seminal vesicula 12% and 100%, and for bladder infiltration 20% and 97%. There was not a significant difference between the prostate specific antigen values (p=0.94) in cases when the tumour was confined to the prostate and when the cancer showed extraprostatic infiltration. There was significant difference between the Gleason score values between the two groups (p=0.008). CONCLUSION - The sensitivity of CT for local spread of prostate cancer is very low, thus CT is not a suitable method for the local staging before surgery.]
