Hepatopancreato-biliary (HPB) surgeons, when planning complex cases of pancreatic cancer, lose precious time because of difficulties in visualising the interaction between tumour and blood vessels and identifying patient-specific anatomy. To tackle this issue, the Integrated Imaging Workstation (IIW) was prototyped by e/MTIC and Philips. This...

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is a devastating disease with a high mortality rate, poor prognosis, and a mere 7.7% 5-year survival rate [1] compared to 65% for all cancer types [2]. Approximately 80% of patients are diagnosed at the advanced stage [3], for which only palliative chemo(radio)therapy remains as treatment option. However,...

With a 5-year survival rate of only 9%, pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest types of cancer. Among other things, this is caused by the extreme difficulty of diagnosing recurrent pancreatic cancer in an early stage. One of the important next steps in discovering pancreatic cancer automatically on a CT scan is finding healthy pancreatic...

Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest types of cancer and generally has a 5-year survival rate of 5%. Surgery (pancreatoduodenectomy) is the only form of curative treatment for patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. If the tumour is operable, the resectability of the tumour depends on the level of tumour-vessel contact. Based on CT scans...

Introduction: Pancreatic adenocarcinoma holds one of the worst prognosis of all known malignancies. Local treatment options for patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer may increase tumor control and benefit patient survival. This study aimed to test the feasibility of a possible new treatment method utilizing intratumoral holmium...

Purpose: Solutions to improve the implementation of shared decision making (SDM) in oncology often focus on the consultation, with limited effects. In this study, we used a service design perspective on the care path of locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC). We aimed to understand how experiences of patients, their significant others, and...

Cancer is known as one of the leading causes of death in the world with difficult<br/>diagnose at early stages, poor prognosis and high mortality. Animal-based<br/>experiments and clinical trials have always been the main approach for cancer<br/>research, albeit they may have limitations and ethical issues. Mathematicalmodeling<br/>as an...

More than eighty percent of pancreatic cancer involves ductal adenocarcinoma with an abundant desmoplastic extracellular matrix surrounding the solid tumor entity. This aberrant tumor microenvironment facilitates a strong resistance of pancreatic cancer to medication. Although various therapeutic strategies have been reported to be effective...
