Understanding the current status of image-guided ablation for metastatic colorectal disease.
We examine whether with careful patient selection, optimal technology, meticulous technique, and diligent follow-up, consistently reproducible high quality outcomes will be achieved in the next few years....
Extra-abdominal lumbar abscesses caused by retroperitoneal gastrointestinal perforations through the lumbar triangle of Petit: report of two...
We report two cases of retroperitoneal bowel perforation presenting spontaneously at admission with a lumbar abscess trespassing the lumbar triangle of Petit, a classical "locus of minus resistencia" of the posterior abdominal wall. The first case was caused by perforation of a retrocecal appendicit...
Discrepancy in diagnosis of gastric submucosal tumor among esophagogastroduodenoscopy, CT, and endoscopic ultrasonography: a retrospective a...
We retrospectively investigated diagnostic accuracy of EGD and CT for SMT, in comparison to EUS findings. Ninety-three consecutive lesions in which gastric SMT was suspected by EGD were investigated by EUS from March 2009 to June 2011, including 55 lesions evaluated also by CT 4 months before or aft...
CT and enhanced CT in diagnosis of gastrointestinal neuroendocrine carcinomas.
CT and enhanced CT provide useful information regarding gastrointestinal neuroendocrine carcinomas' location, density, enhancement pattern, and some metastasis. These features are helpful to increase the diagnostic accuracy....
Diagnostic yield of capsule endoscopy for gastric diseases.
Currently, the diagnostic yield of CE for gastric diseases is not high enough for gastric screening. Additional improvements including preparations, position change, or the invention of new technologies are required....
Virtual colonoscopy in the US Army: current utilization at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
Virtual colonoscopy (VC), also known as CT colonography, continues to gain momentum worldwide as a safe and accurate alternative to traditional optical colonoscopy (OC) for colorectal cancer (CRC) screening. Within the US Army medical system, VC has experienced sustained growth since the program's in...
Incidentally discovered solid pancreatic masses: imaging and clinical observations.
All of the solid masses were malignant. There were 14 adenocarcinomas and 10 neuroendocrine tumors. The most common indications for the initial CT were surveillance of an extrapancreatic malignancy (n = 10) and evaluation for hematuria (n = 6). On the initial CT, 16 of the patients (67%) had a c...
64-Section multi-detector row CT in the preoperative diagnosis of peritoneal carcinomatosis: correlation with histopathological findings.
64-Section CT with the addition of isotropic reformatted coronal and sagittal images is a very effective technique in the detection of peritoneal metastases of 0.5 cm in diameter or larger, although sensitivity decreases remarkably for lesions <0.5 cm in diameter....
Computed tomographic features of two cases of acute gastric anisakiasis.
Our two cases showed transiently swollen gastric folds comprised of the remarkably thickened contrast little-enhanced submucosal layer with little-thickened contrast-enhanced mucosal and muscular-serosal layers on multi-detector row CT. When CT demonstrates the swollen gastric folds in acute abdomen...
Comparison of diffusion-weighted MR imaging and multidetector-row CT in the detection of liver metastases in patients operated for pancreati...
Sensitivity and specificity in detecting liver metastases were 53.3% and 77.8% for MDCT and 86.7% and 97.5% for DWI, respectively. In our study population DWI would have changed the therapeutic management in 4 out of 31 patients (12.9%) when compared to MDCT. CONCLUSION: In the present pilot study,...
