ConclusionThe DCE-MRI radiomics model, especially image features extracted from the delayed phases, can help improve the performance in predicting TILs. The radiomics nomogram is effective in predicting TILs in breast cancer.Key Points•Radiomics features extracted from DCE-MRI, especially delayed phase images, help predict TIL levels in breast cancer.•We developed a nomogram based on MRI to predict TILs in breast cancer that achieved the highest AUC of 0.950.

ConclusionWe observed strong reproducibility in the assessment of PI-QUAL between two radiologists with high expertise in prostate mpMRI. At present, PI-QUAL offers clinicians the only available tool for evaluating and reporting the quality of prostate mpMRI in a systematic manner but further refinements of this scoring system are warranted.Key Points•Inter-reader agreement for each single Prostate Imaging Quality (PI-QUAL) score (i.e., PI-QUAL 1 to PI-QUAL 5) was strong, with weighted kappa = 0.85 (95% confidence intervals: 0.51 – 1) and percent agreement = 84%.• Interobserver  agreement was strong wh...

This study was designed to compare the detection of subtle lesions (calcification clusters or masses) when using the combination of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) and synthetic mammography (SM) with digital mammography (DM) alone or combined with DBT.MethodsA set of 166 cases without cancer was acquired on a DBT mammography system. Realistic subtle calcification clusters and masses in the DM images and DBT planes were digitally inserted into 104 of the acquired cases. Three study arms were created: DM alone, DM with DBT and SM with DBT. Five mammographic readers located the centre of any lesion within the images that s...

The number of people living with chronic immunosuppression is increasing in the United States. Patients with HIV, those who have had bone marrow or solid organ transplants, and patients taking biologics for autoimmune diseases are at increased risk for skin cancer. Skin cancer in these patients is more aggressive and more likely to metastasize and cause death. Medications and individual risk factors such as sex, age, and ethnicity are independent risk factors for the development of skin cancer. Routine screening and aggressive treatment of actinic keratoses and nonmelanoma skin cancers can reduce patients' skin cancer burd...

Normal-pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) is characterized by the clinical triad of dementia, gait instability, and urinary incontinence. The estimated annual incidence is 1.8 cases in 100,000 persons, making NPH a rare diagnosis and uncommon cause of dementia. NPH is a form of communicating hydrocephalus that can easily be missed in older adults with multiple comorbidities, so clinicians must exclude reversible causes of dementia before diagnosing irreversible causes such as Alzheimer disease.
