Comparison of clinical MRI liver iron content measurements using signal intensity ratios, R 2 and R 2*

Purpose To compare three types of MRI liver iron content (LIC) measurement performed in daily clinical routine in a single center over a 6-year period. Methods Patients undergoing LIC MRI-scans (1.5T) at our center between January 1, 2008 and December 31, 2013 were retrospectively included. LIC was measured routinely with signal intensity ratio (SIR) and MR-relaxometry (R 2 and R ...

FDG-PET/CT lymph node staging after neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with adenocarcinoma of the esophageal–gastric junction

Objectives The aim of the analysis was to assess the accuracy of various FDG-PET/CT parameters in staging lymph nodes after neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Methods In this prospective study, 74 patients with adenocarcinoma of the esophageal–gastric junction were examined by FDG-PET/CT in the course of their neoadjuvant chemotherapy given before surgical treatment. Data from the final ...

Diagnostic performance of contrast-enhanced multidetector computed tomography and gadoxetic acid disodium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging in detecting hepatocellular carcinoma: direct comparison and a meta-analysis

The purpose of this study was to directly (head-to-head) compare the per-lesion diagnostic performance of contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) (also referred to as CT hereafter) and gadoxetic acid disodium (Gd-EOB-DTPA)-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging (also referred to as MRI hereafter) for the detection of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Studies reporting direct ...
