PURPOSE: To compare high flip angle (FA) hepatobiliary-phase (hHBP) imaging with variable time intervals to conventional HBP (cHBP) to assess the impact of increased FA on image quality in shortened HBP imaging. METHODS: Data from 218 patients, divided into normal liver group (n = 184) and decompensated liver group (n = 34), who underwent liver magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) including 10-min, 15-min, 20-min hHBP, and cHBP were analyzed...

PURPOSE: To develop and validate a model for predicting suboptimal debulking surgery (SDS) of serous ovarian carcinoma (SOC) using radiomics method, clinical and MRI features. METHODS: 228 patients eligible from institution A (randomly divided into the training and internal validation cohorts) and 45 patients from institution B (external validation cohort) were collected and retrospectively analyzed. All patients underwent abdominal pelvic enhanced MRI scan, including T2-weighted imaging fat-suppressed fast spin-echo (T2FSE), T1-weighted dual-echo magnetic resonance imaging (T1DEI), diffusion weighted imaging (DWI), and T1 with contrast enhancement (T1CE)...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy of low-flow oxygen inhalation in mitigating transient severe motion (TSM) artifacts associated with gadoxetate disodium-enhanced hepatic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS: Patients undergoing gadoxetate disodium-enhanced MRI were included. During the examination, the experimental group received oxygen at 2 L/min via nasal cannula, while the control group did not. Images and TSM scores were evaluated and compared across precontrast, arterial, venous, and hepatobiliary phases...

We provide commentary on the paper by You et al., which proposed the 'serosal invasion sign' as a new criterion for T4a gastric cancer on CT. We clarify the anatomical relationship between the perigastric vessels and the serosa, correcting for an anatomical oversight in the original figures. We affirm the significance of this diagnostic sign in the T-staging of gastric cancer. Our insights aim to enhance the understanding and clinical application of this criterion in staging advanced gastric cancer.

BACKGROUND: Accurate detection of lymph node metastasis (LNM) is crucial for determining the tumor stage, selecting optimal treatment, and estimating the prognosis for cervical cancer. This study aimed to assess the diagnostic efficacy of multimodal diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and morphological parameters alone or in combination, for detecting LNM in cervical cancer. METHODS: In this prospective study, we enrolled consecutive cervical cancer patients who received multimodal DWI (conventional DWI, intravoxel incoherent motion DWI, and diffusion kurtosis imaging) before treatment from June 2022 to June 2023...

OBJECTIVE: Transcatheter Arterial Chemoembolization (TACE) is the first choice for the treatment of advanced-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, TACE suffers from a lack of specificity and rapid drug release. Herein, a targeted redox-responsive peptide (TRRP) was synthesized and used as a carrier of doxorubicin (DOX) to enhance the efficacy of TACE through tumor cells targeting and controlled drug release. METHODS: TRRP has a high loading capacity of DOX and a sensitive drug release behavior at high glutathione (GSH) concentration...

The kidney is the most common solid organ transplant globally and rates continue to climb, driven by the increasing prevalence of end stage renal disease (ESRD). Compounded by advancements in surgical techniques and immunosuppression leading to longer graft survival, radiologists evermore commonly evaluate kidney transplant patients and candidates, underscoring their role along the transplant process. Multiphase computed tomography (CT) with multiplanar and 3D reformatting is the primary method for evaluating renal donor candidates, detailing renal size, vascular/collecting system anatomy, and identifying significant pathologies such as renal vascular diseases and nephrolithiasis...

PURPOSE: Urologic prosthetics offer significant quality of life enhancements for patients with stress urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction. Artificial urinary sphincter and penile prosthesis are the most commonly used prosthetics for these patients. Radiographic imaging offers important insight, guiding treatment when patients present with complications. Herein, we pictorialize normal radiographic findings and complications alike.

OBJECTIVES: To compare the image quality of 1.5T and 3T prostate MRIs of the same post-hip arthroplasty patients, with a specific focus on the degree of susceptibility artifacts. METHODS: This single-center retrospective study included post-hip arthroplasty patients who underwent 1.5T prostate MRIs between 2021 and 2023, as well as comparative 3T prostate MRIs. Three blinded abdominal radiologists retrospectively reviewed their diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI, 50 s/mm2 ), T2-weighted imaging (T2WI), and dynamic contrast-enhanced imaging (DCE) to evaluate the image quality...

BACKGROUND: Although systemic therapies are recommended for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients with main portal vein (MPV) invasion and preserved liver function, the outcome is limited. In the real-world, chemoembolization is a commonly used local treatment for advanced HCC. PURPOSE: To evaluate whether the additional chemoembolization treatment yields survival benefits compared to systemic therapy for HCC patients with MPV invasion and preserved liver function (Child-Pugh score ≤ B7) in a real-world study from multiple centers...

OBJECTIVE: The Node-RADS classification was recently published as a classification system to better characterize lymph nodes in oncological imaging. The present analysis investigated the diagnostic benefit of the Node-RADS classification of staging computed tomography (CT) images to categorize and stage lymph nodes in patients with colon cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All patients were surgically resected and the lymph nodes were histopathological analyzed. All investigated lymph nodes were scored in accordance to the Node-RADS classification by two experienced radiologists...

Diagnostic multiparametric MRI of the prostate has steadily evolved over the last three decades and can now reliably depict the dominant tumor in most men with prostate cancer. In response, several methods of targeted biopsy to direct tissue sampling of suspected tumor foci seen at multiparametric MRI have been developed and successfully tested in recent years, including software-assisted MRI-ultrasound (US) fusion biopsy and direct MRI-guided in-bore biopsy. These advances are leading to a sea change in the approach to prostate cancer diagnosis, with the traditional approach of blind systematic biopsy increasingly being replaced by MRI directed targeted biopsy...

V John, J Mercer, K Kim, R Kochhar
Cytoreductive surgery (CRS) with or without hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) is the mainstay of potentially curative surgical treatment for malignancies that have spread to peritoneal surfaces. This surgical procedure is however associated with high morbidity and appropriate patient selection and planning is therefore essential. Available multimodality imaging techniques include CT with oral and intravenous contrast, MRI including use of dedicated peritoneal protocol and FDG-PET/CT. These used with the correct technique, read by specialist radiologists and discussed under the auspices of a dedicated multidisciplinary team, can help to improve outcomes...
