Rare thyroid Cartilage Metastases Detected on F-Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography Scan.

Indian J Nucl Med 2021 Jan-Mar;36(1):39-42. Epub 2021 Mar 4.

Department of Nuclear Medicine, Mahajan Imaging Centre, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi, India.

Metastatic lesions to thyroid cartilage are very rare and can be often missed on conventional imaging. Anatomical and functional fused positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging has higher sensitivity as compared to conventional CT imaging and can thus identify such atypical sites of metastasis. Here, we present four cases of thyroid cartilage metastases detected on fluorodeoxyglucose PET/CT scan from carcinoma lung, breast, stomach and urinary bladder. Read More

Radiographics 2021 May 14:200168. Epub 2021 May 14.

From the Department of Radiology, University of Texas Health at San Antonio, 7703 Floyd Curl Dr, San Antonio, TX 78229 (A.B., S.D., J.K., V.S.K.); University of Texas at Austin, Austin, Tex (S.K.); Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis, Mo (V.M.); and Department of Radiology, Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale, Ariz (C.O.M.).

The human gastrointestinal tract houses trillions of microbes. The gut and various types of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and archaea, form a complex ecosystem known as the gut microbiota, and the whole genome of the gut microbiota is referred to as the gut microbiome. The gut microbiota is essential for homeostasis and the overall well-being of a person and is increasingly considered an adjunct "virtual organ," with a complexity level comparable to that of the other organ systems.

Front Oncol 2021 23;11:637015. Epub 2021 Mar 23.

Department of Medical Imaging and Interventional Radiology, Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center, Guangzhou, China.

Many types of gastrointestinal cancer have shown promising outcomes after checkpoint blockade immunotherapy; however, it remains largely unclear about the expression profiles of programmed death 1 (PD-1) ligands (CD274 and PDCD1LG2) in the context of human pan-cancer. This work comprehensively analyzed the expression pattern of the PD-1 ligands and the clinical significance in the prognosis prediction among the seven types of gastrointestinal malignancies collected from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and the Cancer Cell Line Encyclopedia (CCLE) database. Furthermore, the correlation of CD274/PDCD1LG2 with cancer immunity was also explored. Read More
