Los angeles coloscopie virtuelle a considérablement bouleversé l’approche du dépistage et du diagnostic du melanoma colorectal et des polypes. los angeles reconstruction 3D des organes permet en effet de les explorer virtuellement, épargnant au sufferer le traumatisme de l. a. coloscopie endoscopique. Elle a désormais une position importante aux côtés de l. a. coloscopie endoscopique et peut, dans un nombre de cas croissants, réaliser une replacement fiable.

Tumors originating from a given organ change their phenotype (and the corresponding gene expression profile) in a way resembling the profile of another organ. This might also explain why sometimes histologic types obviously contradicting the clinical distribution pattern of metastatic spread are found. Of course, this mimicry hypothesis is speculative, but the methods described above used to verify gene expression-based assignment would be blind toward such mimicry. After all, it would be highly desirable to systematically verify molecularly assigned sites of origin in autopsied patients.
