Evaluation of a corrected implementation of a method of simulating pulmonary nodules in chest tomosynthesis.
CONCLUSION: The computer code including a correct rounding function generates simulated nodules that are more visually realistic than simulated nodules generated using the uncorrected computer code, but have a slightly different detection rate compared to real nodules.

Radiation exposure in patients treated with endovascular aneurysm repair: what is the risk of cancer, and can we justify treating younger patients?
CONCLUSION: Treating younger patients with EVAR poses a low ACR of 0.65% (15-year standard surveillance) compared to a lifetime cancer risk of 44%. A simplified surveillance should be used if treating younger patients, which will halve the ACR over 15 years. PMID: 27279268 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Acta Radiologica)

Adverse effects of metallic artifacts on voxel-wise analysis and tract-based spatial statistics in diffusion tensor imaging.
CONCLUSION: Metallic implants existing outside the field of view produce artifacts that affect the statistical analysis (voxel-wise group comparisons) for FA mapping.

Apparent diffusion coefficient values are superior to transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy for the assessment of prostate cancer aggressiveness.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Few studies have focused on comparing the utility of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided biopsy in predicting prostate cancer aggressiveness. Whether apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values can provide more information than TRUS-guided biopsy should be confirmed. PURPOSE: To retrospectively assess the utility of ADC values in predicting prostate cancer aggressiveness, compared to the TRUS-guided prostate biopsy Gleason score (GS). MATERIAL AND METHODS: The DW images of 54 patients with biopsy-proven prostate cancer were obtained using 1.5-T m...

CT-based measurement of the inner pelvic volume.
SM Abstract BACKGROUND: Surgery in the lesser pelvis is associated with a high complication rate as surgeons are spatially limited by solid anatomic structures and soft tissue borders. So far, only two-dimensional (2D) parameters have been used for risk stratification. PURPOSE: To precisely measure the inner pelvic volume a computed tomography (CT)-based three-dimensional (3D) approach was established and compared to approximations by 2D parameter combinations. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Thin-layered multi-slice CT datasets were used retrospectively for slice by slice depiction of the inner pelvic surface. T...

Preparation methods prior to PET/CT scanning that decrease uptake of 18F-FDG by myocardium, brown adipose tissue, and skeletal muscle.
Abstract BACKGROUND: The hypermetabolic environment of the myocardium, brown adipose tissue (BAT), and muscle will have an effect on the diagnostic accuracy of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron-emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT). A low carbohydrate, high fat, and protein-permitted diet before PET/CT scanning can reduce the degree of 18F-FDG uptake by the myocardium, brown adipose tissue, and skeletal muscle.
