Radiomics-based nomogram using CT imaging for noninvasive preoperative prediction of early recurrence in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma.
CONCLUSION: The radiomics nomogram is a non-invasive preoperative biomarker for predicting early recurrence in patients with HCC. This model may be of clinical utility for guiding surveillance follow-ups and identifying optimal interventional strategies.

Radiation dose and image quality of computed tomography fluoroscopy with partial exposure mode.
Abstract PURPOSE: The present study aimed to evaluate the scan technique of computed tomography (CT)-guided puncture procedures using partial exposure mode (PEM) on the radiation dose of the operator's hand and image quality. METHODS: Radiation dose was evaluated using three types of scanning methods: one-shot scan (OS), OS with a bismuth shield added (OSBismuth), and a half-scan (i.e., PEM) capable of an adjustable exposure angle. Dose evaluation was performed using a torso phantom, while a circular phantom simulating the liver parenchyma and lesions was used for image quality evaluation. For each scanning m...

A warning for warming catheters: interventional radiology's role.
Abstract Concerns have been raised in the literature, regarding the risk of venous thromboembolic events associated with the use of thermoregulatory catheters. Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are commonly used to prevent venous thromboembolic events. We demonstrate the usefulness of IVC filter placement prior to the removal of thermoregulatory warming catheters. The management of thermoregulatory warming catheter associated venous thromboembolism is outlined through a retrospective case series of three patients. In one case IVC thrombus was incidentally detected at ultrasonography one-week post removal. The secon...

Benign focal liver lesions masquerading as primary liver cancers on MRI.
Abstract Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) are the most common primary liver malignancies. HCC and ICC have characteristic imaging findings, but a number of benign entities can appear similar and can cause diagnostic dilemma. Ideally, accurate and timely diagnosis of these conditions can help the patient to avoid a needle biopsy or even unnecessary treatment. In this article, we present various benign liver lesions that display imaging characteristics that are similar to HCC and ICC on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and discuss salient features that may assist in accurate d...

This makes it imperative to develop and set guidelines in place to limit transmission and utilize resources in an optimal fashion. A multi-tiered approach needs to be devised and monitored at the administrative level, tak...

Abstract Radiographs of the abdomen and pelvis are routinely obtained as a standard part of clinical care for the abdomen and pelvis. Brisk advances in technology over the last few decades have resulted in a multitude of medical devices and materials. Recognizing and evaluating these devices on abdominal and pelvic radiographs are critical, yet increasingly a difficult endeavor. In addition, multiple devices serving different purposes may have a similar radiographic appearance and position causing confusion for the interpreting radiologist. The role of the radiologist is to not only identify accurately these medic...

Duodenal tumors on cross-sectional imaging with emphasis on multidetector computed tomography: a pictorial review.
Abstract Duodenal tumours are uncommon, but they can cause significant morbidity and mortality. As stomach and colon are a more common site of gastrointestinal malignancies, radiologists sometimes neglect the duodenum. Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can accurately locate and characterize mass-forming duodenal lesions, making them invaluable for the differential diagnosis and determining management strategies such as biopsy or surgery. Although conventional endoscopy continues to play an important role in the diagnosis of duodenal tumors, MDCT and MRI are very useful f...

Abdominal and pelvic radiographs of medical devices and materials- Part 1: gastrointestinal and vascular devices and materials.
Abstract When compared with chest radiographs, medical devices of the abdomen and pelvis are less frequently seen. However, with recent advances in technology the interpreting radiologists are seeing more medical objects on these radiographs. The identification of these devices and materials are crucial for not only enabling the radiologist to understand the underlying background pathology but also for evaluating any related complications. An online survey of literature showed our review article to be the most detailed. In this first part of our two-part series, we discuss about the various gastrointestinal and va...

Quantitative assessment of diffusion kurtosis imaging depicting deep myometrial invasion: a comparative analysis with diffusion-weighted imaging.
Abstract PURPOSE We aimed to investigate histogram analysis of diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI) and conventional diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) to distinguish between deep myometrial invasion and superficial myometrial invasion in endometrial carcinoma (EC). METHODS A total of 118 pathologically confirmed EC patients with preoperative DWI were included. The data were postprocessed with a DKI (b value of 0, 700, 1400, and 2000 s/mm2) model for quantitation of apparent diffusion values (D) and apparent kurtosis coefficient values (K) for non-Gaussian distribution. The apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) was postp...
