CT and microbiologic follow-up in primary multidrug-resistant pulmonary tuberculosis.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Little attention has been paid to the initial and follow-up computed tomography (CT) features in primary multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (pMDR-TB) setting. PURPOSE: To describe serial CT findings and clinical course of pMDR-TB with antibiotic treatment. MATERIAL AND METHODS: For the last 10 years, 340 MDR-TB patients were managed in a tertiary referral hospital. Among them, we included 44 (27 men, 17 women; mean age, 40 years; age range, 20-81 years) pMDR-TB patients; 37 treated with chemotherapy only and seven treated with medical therapy plus surgery. CT findings were evaluated r...

Magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) for measurement of muscle stiffness of the shoulder: feasibility with a 3 T MRI system.
This study prospectively evaluated 16 healthy subjects (mean age, 29.8 years; range, 25-51 years). MRE was acquired with 3 T MR through the use of a 2D-gradient-echo-based MRE sequence at two different excitation frequencies (90 and 120 Hz). The mean stiffness values (MSV) of the trapezius and infraspinatus muscles were measured by two radiologists. Differences between the MSV in the x, y, and z motion-sensitization directions were assessed. Inter-observer agreement was also measured. RESULTS: The MSV of the trapezius muscle were 2.72 kPa ± 0.6 (SD) at 90 Hz and 4.66&th...

Influence of different reconstruction parameters in the visualization of intracranial stents using C-arm flat panel CT angiography: experience in an animal model.
r A Abstract BACKGROUND: C-arm flat panel computed tomography angiography (CA-CTA) is a relatively new imaging modality. Consequently, knowledge about postprocessing parameters and their influence on image quality is still limited, especially for the visualization of implanted microstents. PURPOSE: To optimize reconstruction parameters by evaluating the influence of these different parameters for CA-CTA visualization of microstents in an animal model. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Eleven microstents were implanted within the left common carotid artery of 11 New Zealand white rabbits. Both CA-CTA, using intra-ven...

Image quality evaluation of iterative model reconstruction on low tube voltage (80 kVp) coronary CT angiography in an animal study.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Iterative model reconstruction (IMR) is a newer generation iterative reconstruction method, but its value on coronary computed tomography (CT) angiography requires investigation. PURPOSE: To evaluate coronary image quality using IMR at a low-tube voltage of 80 kVp on coronary CT angiography in miniature pigs. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Five healthy miniature pigs underwent prospective electrocardiogram-gated coronary 256-slice CT angiography at 120 kVp and 80 kVp tube voltages, respectively. Filtered back projection (FBP) was used to reconstruct the 120 kVp standard-dose (SD) image sets (...

Additional US or DBT after digital mammography: which one is the best combination?
Abstract BACKGROUND: Digital mammography (DM) is widespread used for the detection of breast cancer, but its sensitivity drops in dense breasts. It is well known that additional breast ultrasound (US) and digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) increase the sensitivity of DM. However, to our knowledge, there are no articles comparing the role of both additional techniques. PURPOSE: To assess the diagnostic performance of DM and the different combinations of DM + additional DBT and DM + additional US in an enriched sample of patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective study in an enriched sample of 1042 pati...

Preoperative planning of renal transplantation: a comparison of non-contrast-enhanced ultrasonography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance angiography with observations from surgery.
CONCLUSION: Either US or NCCT can be used as the preferred preoperative imaging modality to examine vessel status before kidney transplantation, but a combination of the two is preferable. NCMRA should not be used as the sole imaging modality for preoperative imaging before kidney transplantation because of its low sensitivity in detecting severe arteriosclerotic disease without the presence of stenosis.
