Abstract

Objective: To present our experience in assessing tumor vascularity in advanced cervical cancer using the HDlive flow silhouette mode.
Materials and methods: Thirteen advanced cervical cancer patients (11 squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) patients and 2 gastric-type mucinous carcinoma (GAS) patients) were studied using the HDlive flow silhouette mode. Tumor vascularity was assessed using the subjective grading system (grade I, minimal blood flow pattern; grade II, moderate blood flow pattern; and grade III, abundant blood flow pattern).
Results: The number of patients with grade I was 0, that of grade II was 4 (36.4%), and that of grade III was 7 (63.6%) in the SCC group, whereas that of grade I was 2 (100%) in the GAS group (p = 0.0128).
Conclusion: Tumor vascularity may differ between SCC and GAS advanced cervical cancers. A grading system using the HDlive flow silhouette mode may provide useful, additional information on the assessment of tumor vascularity in the treatment effect on advanced cervical cancers. Further studies involving a larger sample size are needed to confirm the validity of this grading system using the HDlive flow silhouette mode for the assessment of tumor vascularity in advanced cervical cancer patients.
Keywords: Advanced cervical cancer, Gastric-type mucinous carcinoma, HDlive flow silhouette mode, Squamous cell carcinoma, Tumor vascularity.
