Double diffential fragmentation cross sections measurements of 95 MeV/u 12C on thin targets for hadrontherapy

3 juin 2013

During therapeutic treatment with heavy ions like carbon, the beam undergoes nuclear fragmentation and secondary light charged particles, in particular protons and alpha particles, are produced. To estimate the dose deposited into the tumors and the surrounding healthy tissues, an accurate (...)

Methylene Blue Dye, an Accurate Dye for Sentinel Lymph Node Identification in Early Breast Cancer

1er décembre 2009

The aim of this prospective study was to analyze the safety of methylene blue dye (MBD) and compare its efficacy with that of isotopic mapping for sentinel lymph node (SLN) identification in breast cancer. Patients and Methods : The SLN procedure, involving isotopic mapping and MBD (subareolar (...)

A New Intraoperative Gamma Camera for the Sentinel Lymph Node Procedure in Breast Cancer

17 mars 2009

This study aimed at evaluating the performance of an intraoperative gamma camera, named CarolIReS, to detect axillary drainage and to assess the removal of sentinel lymph nodes (SLN) in breast surgery. Patients and Methods : SLN biopsy was performed on 25 patients and the CarolIReS camera was (...)

Design of a High Performances Small Animal PET System With Axial Oriented Crystals and DOI Capability

16 mars 2009

In most Positron Emission Tomography (PET) systems dedicated to small animal imaging, the geometry of the detector module is based on a block structure where the crystal elements are coupled to a reduced number of photomultiplier tubes (PMT). In this configuration, the spatial resolution and (...)

Optimization of sentinel lymph node biopsy in breast cancer using an operative gamma camera

11 janvier 2008

Sentinel lymph node (SLN) procedure is now a widely accepted method of LN staging in selected invasive breast cancers (unifocal, size [less than or equal to] 2 cm, clinically N0, without previous treatment). Complete axillary clearance is no longer needed if the SLN is negative. However, the (...)

Récidives ganglionnaires axillaires après lymphadénectomie sentinelle pour cancer du sein Axillary lymph node recurrence after sentinel lymph node biopsy for breast cancer

22 août 2007

Objectif L’objectif de cette mise au point est l’analyse des taux de récidives ganglionnaires axillaires (RA) après lymphadénectomie sélective (LS) pour cancer mammaire. Méthodes Les principales séries publiées entre 1995 et 2006, en langues française et anglaise, concernant la pratique de la LS en (...)

Study of 4 inorganic scintillating crystals for an operative gamma probe in radioguided surgery

20 août 2007

In case of lymphatic cancers, the sentinel lymph node technique is performed using a gamma probe for intraoperative radioguided surgery. The inorganic scintillating crystal gamma probe developed at IPHC was equipped with 4 fast decay time inorganic scintillators : YAP, LYSO, LaCl3 and LaBr3. (...)

An operative gamma camera for sentinel lymph node procedure in case of breast cancer

20 août 2007

Large field of view gamma cameras are widely used to perform lymphoscintigraphy in the sentinel lymph nodes (SLN) procedure in case of breast cancer. However, they are not specified for this application and their sizes do not enable their use in the operative room to control the excision of the (...)

Precise Localization of Sentinel Lymph Nodes and Estimation of Their Depth Using a Prototype Intraoperative Mini $gamma$-Camera in Patients with Breast Cancer

29 mai 2007

The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of a prototype intraoperative mini -camera, the CarolIReS, with a 50 x 50 mm field of view, to precisely localize sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) and to determine their depth in a series of patients with infiltrative breast cancer requiring SLN (...)
