Dual-Energy CT Monitoring of Cryoablation Zone Growth in the Spinal Column and Bony Pelvis: A Laboratory Study
ConclusionsThis application of dual-energy CT and VNCa imaging to cryoablation monitoring permits earlier ice visualization within the vertebral column and pelvic bones in near real time. Because these scanners and imaging techniques increase in availability in interventional suites, cryoablation of tumors along the spine and pelvic bone potentially could be performed with greater confidence.

Estimation of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Rupture Risk with Biomechanical Imaging Markers
ConclusionsRRED was smaller than the actual diameter in more than half of pre-rupture AAAs, suggesting a lower rupture risk than estimated with the actual diameter. The results suggest that the currently available biomechanical imaging markers might not be ready for use in clinical practice. (Source: Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology)
