Sixteen Gauge biopsy needles are better and safer than 18 Gauge in native and transplant kidney biopsies.
r B Abstract BACKGROUND: Kidney biopsies are essential for optimal diagnosis and treatment. PURPOSE: To examine if quality and safety aspects differ between types and sizes of biopsy needles in native and transplant kidneys. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 1299 consecutive biopsies (1039 native and 260 transplant kidneys) were included. Diagnostic quality, needle size and type, clinical data and complications were registered. Eight-three percent of the data were prospective. RESULTS: In native kidney biopsies, 16 Gauge (G) needles compared to 18 G showed more glomeruli per pass (11 vs. 8, P

Contrast medium enhanced susceptibility imaging signal mechanism; should we use contrast medium?
Hakyemez B Abstract BACKGROUND: Intracranial lesions exhibit clear contrast enhancement in T1-weighted imaging, but the mechanism whereby contrast-enhanced susceptibility-weighted imaging (CE-SWI) generates signals remains unclear. Contrast enhancement patterns cannot be reliably predicted. PURPOSE: To explore the mechanism of CE-SWI contrast enhancement. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Fifty-five patients were retrospectively enrolled. All of the imaging employed a clinical 3T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system fitted with a 32-channel head coil. Minimum-intensity projection reformatted images were evaluate...

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. PURPOSE: To determine the effect of a low carbohydrate, high fat and protein-permitted diet on 18F-FDG uptake by myocardium, BAT, and muscle during PET/CT. MATERIAL AND METHOD...

Metal artifact reduction (MAR) based on two-compartment physical modeling: evaluation in patients with hip implants.

PURPOSE: To evaluate the impact of a MAR algorithm on image quality of CT examinations in comparison to filtered back projection (FBP) in patients with hip prostheses. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twenty-two patients with 25 hip prostheses who underwent clinical abdominopelvic CT on a 64-row CT were included in this retrospective study. Axial images were reconstructed with FBP and five increasing MAR levels (M30-34)....

Which system is better to predict prognosis of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma treated by transcatheter arterial chemoembolization as initial therapy? Comparison between CLIP and JIS in a Japanese population.
Abstract BACKGROUND: There has been no consensus as to which system, either the Cancer of the Liver Italian Program (CLIP) or the Japan Integrated Staging (JIS) system, is suitable to predict the prognosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients who underwent transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) as initial therapy. PURPOSE: To retrospectively compare the usefulness of CLIP and JIS in predicting and stratifying the prognosis of HCC patients treated by TACE. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Between 1995 and 2005, consecutive 728 patients with untreated HCC who underwent TACE in our institute were select...

Optimal detection of scapholunate ligament tears with MRI.
CONCLUSION: SLIL tears are more readily detectable on axial MRI sequences than coronal. Clinically, patients with radial-sided wrist pain and suspicion for SLIL tears should have the axial sequences scrutinized carefully.

Increased aortic wall thickness on CT as a sign of prosthetic valve endocarditis.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Increased wall thickness in the aortic root has been suggested as an early sign of prosthetic valve endocarditis (PVE). However, there are no previous studies on the aortic wall thickness after aortic valve replacement (AVR) or in patients with PVE. PURPOSE: To identify a clinically useful cutoff value for aortic wall thickness to detect PVE. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Chest computed tomography (CT) studies (n = 303) on patients with a prosthetic aortic valve were retrospectively analyzed. CT studies on patients without PVE (n = 260) were compared with CT studi...

Carcinosarcoma of the uterus: MRI findings including diffusion-weighted imaging and MR spectroscopy.
CONCLUSION: Large, exophytic heterogeneous endometrial mass containing strongly enhanced areas, which may exhibit "tumor delivery", is a suggestive of carcinosarcoma. Relatively high mean ADC and low choline concentration considering its highly malignant nature due to intra-tumoral heterogeneity with necrosis and epithelial cystic components, and the presence of necrosis-associated high lipid peak may be compatible with carcinosarcoma.

Abstract BACKGROUND: The thickness and signal intensity (SI) of normal uterine endometrium on T2-weighted (T2W) imaging changes depend on the menstrual cycle phase.
