Metabolic abnormalities and survival among patients with non-metastatic breast cancer

Research on the impact of metabolic abnormalities on breast cancer prognosis is limited by small samples and assessment of laboratory values at a single time point, often prior to cancer diagnosis and treatment. In this population-based cohort, time-updat...

Body composition from single versus multi-slice abdominal computed tomography: Concordance and associations with colorectal cancer survival

Computed tomography (CT) scans are routinely obtained in oncology and provide measures of muscle and adipose tissue predictive of morbidity and mortality. Automated segmentation of CT has advanced past single slices to multi-slice measurements, but the co...
