In this study, we reevaluated data sets from patients undergoing CT examinations because of suspected pulmonary embolism and compared doses and diagnostic results of the standard protocol to the additional modern CT subtraction technique. Two groups of single-blinded radiologists were provided with CT data sets from 50 patients. One group (G1) had access to full datasets including CT subtraction with perfusion map. The other group (G2) only evaluated conventional CT angiography. Results were compared to final clinical diagnosis. Dose length product (DLP) of CT angiography was compared to CT subtraction technique, which con...

AbstractPurposeTo compare Lipiodol uptake and tumor response in intermediate-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with and without pre-embolization vascular lake phenomenon (VLP) and to identify the incidence and predictive factors of this phenomenon, in patients treated by conventional transarterial chemoembolization (cTACE).Materials and MethodsThis retrospective study included 151 consecutive patients with intermediate HCC totaling 232 nodules, who underwent cTACE from June 2015 to October 2018. Patients were divided into two groups according to the presence of VLP before embolization. Initial Lipiodol uptake was assess...

Abstract The full spectrum of COVID-19 is still emerging, although several studies have highlighted that patients infected with the novel coronavirus can potentially develop a hypercoagulable state. However, several aspects related to the incidence and pathophysiology of the association between COVID-19 and pulmonary embolism are not well established. Here, we present a case of a patient with COVID-19 who developed acute pulmonary embolism. Clinical and laboratory data and findings of non-enhanced CT indicate possibility of acute pulmonary embolism, and support the decision to proceed with computed tomography pulmonary ang...
