2525 Background: GSK1070916A is a potent and selective inhibitor of Aurora B and C. This phase I study in collaboration with GlaxoSmithKline was part of the Cancer Research UK Clinical Development Programme. Methods: Patients (pts) with advanced/metastatic solid cancers for whom there was no standard therapy, with adequate performance status and organ function were eligible for GSK1070916A (1 hour i.v. infusion days 1 – 5, every 21 days). The primary objectives were to determine the safety profi...

Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW MRI) is an established technique in neuroradiology and more recently has emerged as a useful adjunct to various oncological applications of MRI. It has an expanding role in the evaluation of liver lesions, offers higher detection rates for small lesions, and can increase confidence in differentiating between benign and malignant lesions. Other applications include assessment of tumour response to therapy, differentiating tumour from bland thrombu...

Background: Riedel’s thyroiditis is characterised by chronic inflammatory invasive fibrosclerosis of the thyroid gland, surrounding structures, and extrathyroidal fibrosis. We present a case of Riedel’s thyroiditis associated with nodular fibrosis of the lungs and liver. Case: A 40-year-old woman presented with a 3-month history of neck swelling, difficulty swallowing and breathlessness on exertion. Core biopsy of the goitre revealed dense fibrous tissue with mixed chronic inflammatory cells. A ...

Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) are rare, heterogeneous, and often hormonally active neoplasms. Nuclear medicine (NM) imaging using single photon- and positron-emitting radiopharmaceuticals allows sensitive and highly specific molecular imaging of NETs, complementary to anatomy-based techniques, such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Somatostatin-receptor scintigraphy is a whole-body imaging technique widely used for diagnosis, staging and restaging of NETs. The inc...

Abstract Diffuse idiopathic pulmonary neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia (DIPNECH) is a rare pulmonary disorder presenting with multiple pulmonary nodules in association with a typical mosaic perfusion pattern on computed tomography. In this case, the absence of mosaic perfusion led to an erroneous initial diagnosis of pulmonary metastases from an unknown primary malignancy. This illustrates the importance of considering differential diagnoses when presented with imaging findings compatible with pu...

AbstractBackground Many physicians do not consider thediagnosis of bile acid malabsorption in patients withchronic diarrhea, or do not have access to testing. Weexamined yield of 23-seleno-25-homo-tauro-cholicacid (SeHCAT) scanning in chronic diarrhea patients,and attempted to identify predictors of a positive test.Methods Consecutive patients with chronic diarrheaundergoing SeHCAT scan over a 7-year period wereidentified retrospectively. Bile acid malabsorption wasdefined as present at a retentio...
