Horizontal distance of anterior communicating artery aneurysm neck from anterior clinoid process is critically important to predict postoperative complication in clipping via pterional approach.

CONCLUSION: The horizontal distance from the base of the anterior clinoid process is important to predict CT abnormalities and complications in clipping of AcomA aneurysm through pterional approach. PMID: 28904827 [PubMed]

Publication date: Available online 11 December 2019Source: Urology Case ReportsAuthor(s): Nobufumi Ueda, Hirohito Naito, Mikio SugimotoAbstractWe experienced a case of retroperitoneal hematoma secondary to spontaneous lumbar artery rupture in a kidney transplant patient. A 48-year-old woman underwent kidney transplantation for end-stage renal disease. Fifteen days after transplantation, the patient presented with strong abdominal and back pain on the right side, and blood examination showed severe anemia. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography and emergent angiography was performed, which showed extravasation from the lumba...

Advances in X-ray computed tomography (CT) over the past 20 years have enabled non-invasive imaging of the coronary arteries, as well as cardiac structure and function. Coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) has emerged as an accurate non-invasive imaging modality for identifying the anatomic severity of coronary stenoses (1 –3). Similar to other anatomic coronary imaging, coronary CTA alone has been limited in its ability to define the hemodynamic significance of coronary stenoses (4). Since the identification of the presence and severity of ischemia are important parameters for selecting between invasive an...

Data on left ventricular (LV) deformation imaging using CT angiography (CTA) are scarce and the feasibility of atrial deformation analysis by CT has not been addressed. We aimed to compare 2D echocardiographic and CT derived LV and left atrial (LA) global longitudinal strain (GLS) obtained by using a novel feature tracking algorithm in patients following transcatheter aortic valve implantation.

AbstractAcute heart failure is one of the main diagnostic and therapeutic challenges in clinical practice due to a non ‐specific clinical manifestation and the urgent need for timely and tailored management at the same time. In this position statement, the Heart Failure Association aims to systematize the use of various imaging methods in accordance with the timeline of acute heart failure care proposed in the rec ent guidelines of the European Society of Cardiology. During the first hours of admission the point‐of‐care focused cardiac and lung ultrasound examination is an invaluable tool for rapid differential diagn...

Authors: Xu J, Wang X, Xiao H, Xu J Abstract BACKGROUND To determine the difference in size-specific dose estimates (SSDEs), separately based on effective diameter (deff) and water equivalent diameter (dw) of the central slice of the scan range in computed tomography coronary angiography (CTCA). MATERIAL AND METHODS There were 134 patients who underwent CTCA examination, were electronically retrieved. SSDEs (SSDEdeff and SSDEdw) were calculated using 2 approaches: deff and dw. The median SSDEs and mean absolute relative difference of SSDEs were calculated. Linear regression model was used to assess the absolute rel...

Objective The aim of this study was to compare the risk of hypersensitivity reactions to iopromide after intra-arterial (IA) administration and intravenous (IV) administration. Materials and Methods Four observational studies were pooled. Almost half of the study population (48.1%) was from Europe, and one quarter each from China (27.6%) and other Asia countries (24.1%). All patients received iopromide either intra-arterially or intravenously for angiographic procedures (mostly cardio-angiography) or contrast-enhanced computed tomography. A nested case-control analysis, including a multivariable logistic regression mo...

Objectives The aim of this study was to compare image quality, conspicuity, and endoleak detection between single-energy low-kV images (SEIs) and dual-energy low-keV virtual monoenergetic images (VMIs+) in computed tomography angiography of the aorta after endovascular repair. Materials and Methods An abdominal aortic aneurysm phantom simulating 36 endoleaks (2 densities; diameters: 2, 4, and 6 mm) in a medium- and large-sized patient was used. Each size was scanned using single-energy at 80 kVp (A) and 100 kVp (B), and dual-energy at 80/Sn150kVp for the medium (C) and 90/Sn150kVp for the large size (D). VMIs+ at 40 k...
