Role of Diffusion Weighted Magnetic Resonance Imaging in evaluation of hepatic focal lesions
Conclusion In conclusion, DW MRI alone performs equally well as Gd-MRI in detection and differentiation of different hepatic focal lesions. In cases where gadolinium injection is not allowed, dynamic contrast-enhanced imaging can be replaced by a protocol based on unenhanced T1 and T2 weighted imaging combined with DWI. Adding DWI to Gd-MRI is more accurate. (Source: The Egyptian Journal of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine)

Role of venous Doppler evaluation of intrauterine growth retardation
Conclusion We observed that venous Doppler is superior to arterial Doppler in predicting poor perinatal outcome and that the abnormal equivocal BPP scoring significantly correlated with adverse outcome. We also, concluded that multi-vessel Doppler Ultrasonography and BPP can effectively stratify IUGR fetuses with placental vascular insufficiency into risk categories. Fetal deterioration appears to be independently reflected in these two testing modalities; their combined use is likely to be complementary.

Positive remodeling index by MSCT coronary angiography: A prognostic factor for early detection of plaque rupture and vulnerability
Conclusion Previous studies had shown that most acute coronary syndromes were initiated by sudden changes of mildly stenotic lesions, commonly found in positively remodeled vessels. Promising comparative results between MSCT and IVUS allowed consideration of MDCT as a useful tool in the noninvasive detection of potentially threatening coronary lesions. In our study, RI⩾1.5 showed a strong correlation between the lipid plaque area, multiplicity of the plaques, and cross sectional area which were prognostic factors for plaque rupture and vulnerability, and thus, early detection of coronary artery disease.
