Impaired lesion detectability on gadoxetic acid-enhanced MR imaging in indocyanine green excretory defect: case series of three patients
AbstractIndocyanine green (ICG) excretory defect is characterized by an ICG retention rate of more than 50% at 15  min without any other abnormal liver functions. The incidence of ICG excretory defect is 0.007% in the Japanese population. Due to its rarity, the imaging characteristics associated with ICG excretory defect remain unclear. Herein, we present three cases of ICG excretory defect, which showed impai red lesion detectability on gadoxetic acid-enhanced MR imaging (EOB-MRI). In the hepatobiliary phase (HBP) of EOB-MRI, diminished enhancement of the liver parenchyma, prolonged intravascular enhancement, and att...

Improved image quality of temporal bone CT with an ultrahigh-resolution CT scanner: clinical pilot studies
AbstractPurposeUltrahigh-resolution CT (UHRCT) with slice collimation of 0.25  mm × 160 and matrix size of 1024 × 1024 has become clinically available. We compared the image quality of temporal bone CT (TBCT) between UHRCT and conventional multidetector CT (MDCT).Materials and methodsWe retrospectively enrolled 20 patients who underwent TBCT by MDCT (matrix size, 512  × 512) and subsequently by UHRCT (matrix size, 1024 × 1024). Two independent reviewers subjectively graded delineation of normal stapes, oval window, facial nerve canal, incu...

Comprehensive review of Wernicke encephalopathy: pathophysiology, clinical symptoms and imaging findings
AbstractWernicke ’s encephalopathy (WE) is a severe and life-threatening illness resulting from vitamin B1 (thiamine) deficiency. The prevalence of WE has been estimated from 0.4 to 2.8%. If not treated properly, severe neurologic disorders such as Korsakoff psychosis and even death may occur. The classical triad of clinical symptoms (abnormal mental state, ataxia, and ophthalmoplegia) is found in only 16–33% of patients on initial examination. The originally described underlying condition of WE is alcoholism, but it accounts for about 50% of causes of WE. Nonalcoholic patients are also affected by WE and likel...

Follow-up non-contrast MRA after treatment of intracranial aneurysms using microcoils with prominent metallic artifact: a comparative study of TOF-MRA and Silent MRA
ConclusionBarricade coils are associated with prominent metallic artifact on TOF-MRA. Silent MRA is useful for follow-up MRA after embolization using Barricade coils.Secondary abstractThe metallic artifacts were compared between TOF-MRA and Silent MRA in patients treated by using Barricade coils. Barricade coils are associated with more metallic artifact on TOF-MRA than Silent MRA. Silent MRA is useful for follow-up MRA after embolization using Barricade coils.

Radiological approach for the newly incorporated T staging factor, depth of invasion  (DOI), of the oral tongue cancer in the 8th edition of American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging manual: assessment of the necessity for elective neck dissection
AbstractThe 8th edition of American Joint Committee on Cancer ’s (AJCC) Cancer Staging Manual was modified by incorporating depth of invasion (DOI) in the T categorization of oral cavity cancer. This is because DOI is strongly associated with cervical lymph node metastasis, which is the most important negative prognostic factor of oral cavity cancer. This ma jor change in the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual caused re-staging of T category in several cases. Although, the DOI on MRI and CT (radiological DOI; r-DOI) strongly correlated with pathological DOI (p-DOI), it is often 2–3 mm larger than p-DOI. Due to thi...

Imaging features in patients with SAPHO/CRMO: a pictorial review
AbstractSynovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome and chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) have been described as disorders of chronic osteoarthritic inflammation frequently associated with skin manifestations, and SAPHO and CRMO (SAPHO/CRMO) are rare autoinflammatory disorders of unknown etiology. SAPHO tends to occur in adults and CRMO predominantly occurs in children and adolescents. SAPHO/CRMO can affect any skeletal region (e.g., anterior chest wall, spine, or long bones). As SAPHO/CRMO are diagnoses of exclusion, the diagnoses might be difficult if skin manifestations are n...

Morphometric changes and imaging findings of diffuse liver disease in relation to intrahepatic hemodynamics
AbstractDiffuse hepatic diseases have a variety of etiologies, with each showing characteristic morphometric changes. These changes are closely related to micro- and macro-level intrahepatic hemodynamics, in addition to the specific underlying pathophysiology. Short-term disorders in intrahepatic hemodynamics caused by each pathophysiological condition are compensated for by the balance of blood perfusion systems using potential trans-sinusoidal, transversal, and transplexal routes of communication (micro-hemodynamics), while long-term alterations to the intrahepatic hemodynamics result in an increase in total hepatic vasc...

Ovarian solid tumors: MR imaging features with radiologic –pathologic correlation
AbstractOvarian solid tumors have variable histological types including benign and malignant tumors. In addition, non-neoplastic lesions sometimes show a tumor-like appearance. It is important to differentiate benign from malignant tumors. In general, low signal intensity (SI) on T2-weighted imaging (T2WI), low SI on diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), and gradual increased pattern on dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging are known to be suggestive of a benign tumor. Conversely, there are some cases in which these rules do not apply. We should, therefore, strive for a greater understanding of these except...

FDG-PET/CT imaging findings of hepatic tumors and tumor-like lesions based on molecular background
AbstractThe usefulness of whole-body 18-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose (FDG)-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission (PET)/computed tomography (CT) is established for assessment of disease staging, detection of early disease recurrence, therapeutic evaluation, and predicting prognosis in various malignancies; and for evaluating the spread of inflammation. However, the role of FDG-PET/CT for the liver is limited because CT and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can provide an accurate diagnosis of most tumors. In addition, in other potentially useful roles there are several pitfalls in the interpretation of FDG uptake in PET/CT imaging. ...

Hemorrhage owing to cerebral cavernous malformation: imaging, clinical, and histopathological considerations
AbstractCavernous malformation (CM) is the second most common cerebral vascular malformation and is often found incidentally. Their natural history is usually benign, however, patients with CM who present with symptomatic hemorrhage may later follow a serious clinical course if left untreated. The risk of hemorrhage is associated with previous hemorrhage, lesion location (infratentorial and deep), and the presence of associated developmental venous anomaly (DVA). Histopathological specimens also indicate that coexistence of DVA and other vascular malformations may be associated with hemorrhage owing to CMs. Diagnosing CMs ...
