AbstractWide-spread visualization methods which are computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are not sensitive to mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). However, mTBI may cause changes of cerebral microstructure that could be found using diffusion-tensor imaging. The aim of this study is to reveal the impact of acute mTBI (no more than 3  days after trauma) on diffusion parameters in corpus callosum, corticospinal tract, and thalamus in children (aged 14–18). Fractional anisotropy (FA) and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) were analyzed. Significant increase in FA and decrease in ADC were ob...

AbstractThe usefulness of whole-body 18-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose (FDG)-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission (PET)/computed tomography (CT) is established for assessment of disease staging, detection of early disease recurrence, therapeutic evaluation, and predicting prognosis in various malignancies; and for evaluating the spread of inflammation. However, the role of FDG-PET/CT for the liver is limited because CT and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can provide an accurate diagnosis of most tumors. In addition, in other potentially useful roles there are several pitfalls in the interpretation of FDG uptake in PET/CT imaging. ...

Authors: Stević M, Vlajković M, Veličković F, Stanojević G, Nestorović M, Petrović F Abstract A 69 year old patient was admitted to hospital with massive gastrointestinal hemorrhage. The clinical presentation of the patient, except for bleeding, was dominated by the presence of neurofibromatosis type 1 - Von Recklinghausen disease. The patient was referred to multislice computed tomography (CT) angiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy, which were performed without successful detection of the bleeding site. The MRI examination showed the existence of a tumor lo...

We present a case of a 79 year old patient with a medical history of unilateral nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy due to a pT3aN0 (Gleason score 7) prostate carcinoma. Because of slightly elevated prostate specific antigen (PSA) level (0.35ng/dL), a fluorine-18-prostate specific membrane antigen (18F-PSMA)-1007 positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scan was performed, showing no signs of malignant recurrence. However, a moderately PSMA-avid nodular lesion was observed in the left occipital region with homogeneous contrast enhancement, suggestive for a meningioma, which was confirmed on magnetic resona...

CONCLUSION: Carbon-11-choline PET was found have a greater correlation with Gleason score than DWI and is considered to be more useful to predict a higher score in patients with prostate cancer. Fluorine-18-FDG PET was limited because of low sensitivity. PMID: 32222730 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractPulmonary thromboembolism may be accompanied by pulmonary infarction. Even though pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) is a frequently found cause of death at autopsy, pulmonary infarction accompanying PTE is a less common finding and may therefore easily be misinterpreted as infectious or cancerous lung disease. Appearance of pulmonary infarction in post-mortem imaging and acquisition parameters helping to identify pulmonary infarctions are not described yet. Based on a case of a 50-year-old man who died due to PTE and presented pulmonary infarction, we suggest using a pulmonary algorithm in post-mortem computed tomogr...
