McLean, in his letter to the editor, suggested that the conclusions made in our manuscript1 may be the result of Simpson's paradox. In other words, he believes that our results would have been different had we combined the US Sarcoma Collaborative and National Cancer Database (NCDB) patients and analyzed them collectively.

MR imaging has been increasingly getting attention for the evaluation of bladder cancer. Recent studies have been promising for the staging performance of MR imaging in the bladder cancer, although its specific role has not been established yet. Additionally, the use of hybrid imaging combining PET with MR imaging could have the potential to increase its accuracy, although more research studies are needed.

Renal tumors encompass a heterogeneous disease spectrum, which confounds patient management and treatment. Percutaneous biopsy is limited by an inability to sample every part of the tumor. Radiomics may provide detail beyond what can be achieved from human interpretation. Understanding what new technologies offer will allow radiologists to play a greater role in caring for patients with renal cell carcinoma. In this article, we review the use of radiomics in renal cell carcinoma, in both the pretreatment assessment of renal masses and posttreatment evaluation of renal cell carcinoma, with special emphasis on the use of mul...

Multiparametric MR imaging is being used for prostate cancer diagnosis. However, many cancers are missed and the performance needs to improve before it can be used for population-level screening. We can expect standardization of multiparametric MR imaging and increased use of quantitative multiparametric MR imaging, which will lead to more reproducible results and improved interpretation. The development and integration of new acquisition techniques and use of artificial intelligence for image interpretation can lead to implementation of new clinical MR methods. These will lead to increased adoption of multiparametric MR i...

Pancreatic cysts are common and are incidentally detected in up to 13.5% of individuals. Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) and mucinous cystic neoplasm (MCN) are precursors to pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Most will never develop into pancreatic cancer. Several types of pancreatic cysts have no malignant potential. Solid tumors can present as a pancreatic cysts. Guidelines recommend surveillance. Management includes differentiating IPMNs and MCNs from other types, identifying those at highest risk of harboring pancreatic cancer or high-grade dysplasia, and referral to a multidisciplinary group for evaluation and ...
