This Newsletter presents the last set of Professor Eisenblätter’s podcasts focusing on the essential contribution of CT imaging to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. The two new podcasts proposed below emphasize, in particular, the advantage associated with contrast medium administration in improving the detection of tumor recurrence in patients treated for lung and pancreatobiliary cancers. The appropriate use of contrast material may allow for a very high image quality enabling an optimal and early evaluation of tumor response to treatment and correct staging.
The two selected papers demonstrate the usefulness of advanced detection systems that can be applied to CT technology to enhance its staging and monitoring capabilities in these two malignancies.
We also repropose three clinical cases from the mdct.net archive where contrast-enhanced CT is successfully utilized to accurately classify lung and pancreatic cancers and assess tumor response to therapy in patients affected by these cancers.
As usual, suggestions for topics to be covered in future issues of this newsletter are welcome: please send us your proposals at firstname.lastname@example.org.
