The role of MRI-guided biopsy for diagnosis of prostate cancer; comparison between FUSION and "IN-BORE" approaches. Minerva Urol Nefrol. 2020 May 26;: Authors: D'agostino D, Casablanca C, Mineo Bianchi F, Corsi P, Romagnoli D, Giampaoli M, Fiori C, Schiavina R, Brunocilla E, Artibani W, Porreca A Abstract BACKGROUND: The aim of the present study is to evaluate the difference in terms of feasibility and detection rate of two magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guided biopsy approaches (MRI fusion versus "in-bore" MRI) in a single tertiary centre. METHODS: We retrospectively identifi...

Authors: Takatsu Y, Nakamura M, Kobayashi S, Miyati T Abstract PURPOSE: To investigate whether the contrast enhancement effect in hepatobiliary phase (HBP) images can be predicted using transitional phase (3-min delay) images on liver magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) based on the quantitative liver-spleen contrast ratio (Q-LSC) and albumin-bilirubin (ALBI) grade. METHODS: Overall, 212 patients (124 men and 88 women; mean age 66.7 ± 11.1 years) who underwent blood tests (assessed within 1 month of performing MRI) were included; patients with diffuse tumor, hepatectomy, splenectomy, Gamna-Gandy bodies in t...

Conclusions: The independent risk factors for motor deterioration after ependymoma resection were age, worse preoperative McCormick Scale score, and non-GTR. Early surgery for patients with even mild neurological disorders could facilitate functional outcomes. These results may contribute to determining the optimal timing of surgery for spinal intramedullary ependymoma. PMID: 32460467 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

BACKGROUND Patients with blunt cerebrovascular injuries are at risk of thromboembolic stroke. Although primary prevention with antithrombotic therapy is widely used in this setting, its effectiveness is not well defined and requires further investigation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the utility of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)–detected ischemic brain lesions as a possible future outcome for randomized clinical trials in this patient population. METHODS This prospective observational study included 20 adult blunt trauma patients admitted to a level I trauma center with a screening neck CTA showing ex...

Conclusions: Bupivacaine injection improved eye alignment in small-angle horizontal comitant strabismus, effectively diagnosed with orbital magnetic resonance imaging to evaluate volumetric changes of the extraocular muscles. Further clinical studies with larger numbers of patients should be performed to define optimal dosages, concentration, and application method and dose-response relationship.RESUMO Objetivo: Relatar resultados da inje ção de bupivacaína para o tratamento do estrabismo comitante horizontal e avaliar sua eficácia clínica e as alterações radiológicas...

In this study, the presence of other RE in GBCA formulations was investigated. Different lots of Magnevist®, Viewgam®, OptiMARK®, Omniscan®, Dotarem®, and Gadovist® were analyzed. Inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry and atomic absorption spectrometry were used for RE determination. Procedure optimization included sample decomposition and method validation for element determination. The results showed that Sc, Y, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Eu, Tb, Tm, Dy, Ho, and Er were present in the 22 samples analyzed. Terbium, Thulium, Europium, and Lanthanum were, on average, found in the highest amounts, which w...

AbstractThalassemia defined a spectrum of diseases characterized by reduced or absent production of one of the globin chains of hemoglobin. High iron deposition in the myocardium may cause functional impairment even before any changes in left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction. These impairments may appear as changes in strain values. Early detection of myocardial dysfunction is essential for improving survival and preventing further complications. Therefore, this study aims to evaluate the cardiac strain patterns by Feature Tracking -Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (FT-CMR) method and their correlation with T2* values ...
