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....
Assessment of wall inflammation and fibrosis in Crohn's disease: value of T1-weighted gadolinium-enhanced MR imaging.
MRI is increasingly advocated as a robust method for quantifying disease activity in Crohn's disease. In particular, T1-weighted gadolinium-enhanced imaging shows considerable promise as a marker of inflammatory activity. However, interpretation of the literature must be made with an understanding o...
"Peripancreatic strands appearance" in pancreatic body and tail carcinoma: evaluation by multi-detector CT with pathological correlation.
We retrospectively evaluated MDCT images in 17 patients with pancreatic body and tail carcinoma who underwent surgical resection. Peripancreatic strands appearance was defined as the strands structure deriving from the primary lesion and associated with increased CT attenuation of surrounding adipos...
Severe intestinal ischemia as a presenting feature of metastatic ileal carcinoid tumor: role of MDCT with coronal reformation in the early d...
We present a case of intestinal ischemia secondary to metastatic ileal carcinoid tumor diagnosed by CT that showed a small mesenteric mass with an extensive desmoplastic reaction causing an intense involvement of the small bowel. Improvements in CT technology with the use of MDCT scanners and advanc...
Contrast agents as a biological marker in magnetic resonance imaging of the liver: conventional and new approaches.
Liver imaging is an important clinical area in everyday practice. The clinical meaning of different lesion types in the liver can be quite different. Therefore, the result of imaging studies of the liver can change therapeutic concepts fundamentally. Contrast agents are used in the majority of MR ex...
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....
Aggressive angiomyxoma of the pelvis and perineum: a case report and review of the literature.
We present the typical CT and MRI appearances of a 36-year old young woman with an aggressive angiomyxoma of the pelvis and perineum that was proved by postoperative pathology. We also review the CT and MRI features of this disease in the current literature....
Current concepts in transarterial chemoembolization of hepatocellular carcinoma.
Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) has the potential to improve survival in patients with intermediate stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Careful selection of patients is mandatory to gain survival benefit and safe quality of life. Basic principles of TACE in HCC include selective treatment v...
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...
