Comparison of 11C-choline with 18F-FDG in positron emission tomography/computerized tomography for staging urothelial carcinoma: a prospective study

Abstract PURPOSE: 11C-choline was postulated to provide better diagnostic capabilities than other tracers used in positron emission tomography/computerized tomography for staging urothelial carcinoma. We compared the value of using 11C-choline…

Differential use of partial nephrectomy for intermediate and high complexity tumors may explain variability in reported utilization rates

Abstract PURPOSE: Partial nephrectomy has become a reference standard for tumors amenable to a kidney sparing approach but reported utilization rates vary widely. The R.E.N.A.L. (radius, exophytic/endophytic, nearness of tumor…
