Neurovascular Embolization Coils Can Up Image Artifact on MRA Neurovascular Embolization Coils Can Up Image Artifact on MRA
Some neurovascular embolization coils can cause increased image artifact on follow-up magnetic resonance angiography, the US Food and Drug Administration warns.News Alerts
Indocyanine green (ICG) is a near-infrared dye that has been used in the clinic for retinal angiography, and defining cardiovascular and liver function for over 50 years. Recently, there has been an increasing interest in the incorporation of ICG into nanoparticles (NPs) for cancer theranostic applications. Various types of ICG-incorporated NPs have been developed and strategically functionalised to embrace multiple imaging and therapeutic techniques for cancer diagnosis and treatment. This review systematically summaries the biodistribution of various types of ICG-incorporated NPs for the first time, and discusses the pri...
Conclusions: In this feasibility study we have demonstrated the ability of acoustic angiography to detect longitudinal changes in vascular density, which was shown to be a potential biomarker for tumor response to RT.
Conclusions: Exosomes derived from patients with myocardial ischemia promote angiogenesis via the miR-939-iNOS-NO pathway. Our study highlights that coronary serum exosomes serve as an important angiogenic messenger in patients suffering from myocardial ischemia.
This article reviews the imaging diagnosis of nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding, the techniques of diagnostic and therapeutic angiography, the angiographic appearance of the various etiologies of nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding, the rationale behind case-specific selection of embolic agents as well as the anticipated outcome of transcatheter arterial embolization.
Conclusion NC-MRA produced similar and comparable measurements of the thoracic arteries with superior image quality when compared to contrast- enhanced MRA in pediatric congenital heart defects.
Conclusion This study shows that significant PAD is present in almost 15% of ischemic Egyptian patients. We recommend ABI to be done routinely in patients with significant CAD for exclusion or diagnosis of PAD to help in treatment and improving quality of life in addition to modification of cardiac rehabilitation program in presence of PAD according to its severity.

AbstractPurposeStudies focusing on the originating patterns of the deep inferior epigastric artery (DIEA) have not been conducted. Here, we analyzed the vascular anatomy of the DIEA with computed tomographic angiography (CTA) to provide assistance during proximal pedicle dissection of a DIEA-based flap.MethodsWe conducted a retrospective study on patients who had undergone breast reconstruction with the transverse rectus abdominis musculocutaneous flap and the deep inferior epigastric perforator flap from March 2006 to October 2016. Preoperative three-dimensional computed tomographic angiograms of the abdominal wall (hemi-...
Conclusion DADA2 should be included in the differential diagnosis of young patients presenting with ischemic and/or hemorrhagic lesions located in the brain stem and deep gray matter, especially if they have a family history or additional systemic abnormalities.
Conclusion Software monitoring and documentation of radiation dose in interventional procedures can be successfully implemented. Radiation-induced tissue reactions are relatively uncommon.
