State-of-the-art MR Imaging of Fat-containing Focal Lesions of the Liver.

CONCLUSION: Liver nodules should be characterised with regard to underlying liver condition, MRI characteristics and contrast enhancement pattern, including hepatobiliary phase. In many cases, identification of fatty content may help narrowing the differential diagnosis. PMID: 32008550 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Chen SM, Lin KT, Dai YH, Chiang KT, Lee SY Abstract For nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), radiotherapy is the primary treatment. However, complications occur after radiation to the nasopharynx, which could potentially affect the flying safety. Four fighter pilots with NPC were reported. With early to locally advanced NPC, they received radiotherapy with or without concurrent chemotherapy. The prescribed radiation dose was 70 Gy to the primary tumor over the nasopharynx. Before treatment, all patients presented with various degrees of hearing loss on pure tone audiometry (main frequencies of 20-45 dB at 3-4.5...

Objectives The aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of an automated workflow for multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) of the prostate compared with a manual mpMRI workflow. Materials and Methods This retrospective study was approved by the local ethics committee. Two MR technicians scanned 2 healthy volunteers with a prototypical highly automated workflow (Siemens Healthineers GmbH, Erlangen, Germany) and with a manually adjusted scan protocol each. Thirty patients (mean age ± standard deviation, 68 ± 11 years; range, 41–93 years) with suspected prostate cancer underwent ...

Introduction Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the abdomen increasingly incorporates diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) sequences. Whereas DWI can substantially aid in detecting and characterizing suspicious findings, it remains unclear to what extent the use of ultra-high b-value DWI might further be of aid for the radiologist especially when using DWI sequences with advanced processing. The target of this study was therefore to compare high and ultra-high b-value DWI in abdominal MRI examinations. Methods This institutional review board–approved, prospective study included abdominal MRI examinations of 70 onco...

We report a case of a 70-year-old Japanese man who presented with an incidentally discovered retroperitoneal mass without any evidence of excessive corticosteroid secretion. Laboratory and imaging studies, as well as transgastric endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration failed to establish a definitive diagnosis. Thus, the patient underwent surgical resection of the left-sided peritoneal tumor. Weiss score was positive in 6/9 points and the tumor met two major criteria of the Lin-Weiss-Bisceglia (LWB) system leading to a diagnosis of an oncocytic variant of ACC. Based on our findings in this patient, we conclude...

Conclusion: As a result, the correlation of clinical, radiologic, and pathologic data is significant while going for a specific diagnosis in cases of craniofacial fibrous lesions. Total excision is the best treatment, but it can recur. PMID: 32257561 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
