Association of subchondral bone texture on magnetic resonance imaging with radiographic knee osteoarthritis progression: data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative Bone Ancillary Study

ObjectivesTo assess whether initial or 12–18-month change in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) subchondral bone texture is predictive of radiographic knee osteoarthritis (OA) progression over 36 months.MethodsThis was a nested case-control study including 122 knees/122 participants in the Osteoarthritis Initiative (OAI) Bone Ancillary Study, who underwent MRI optimised for...

Hybrid cardiac imaging using PET/MRI: a joint position statement by the European Society of Cardiovascular Radiology (ESCR) and the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM)

Positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have both been used for decades in cardiovascular imaging. Since 2010, hybrid PET/MRI using sequential and integrated scanner platforms has been available, with hybrid cardiac PET/MR imaging protocols increasingly incorporated into clinical workflows. Given the range of complementary information provided by...

Initial experience of an investigational 3T MR scanner designed for use on neonatal wards

ObjectivesMR imaging of neonates is difficult for many reasons and a major factor is safe transport to the MR facilities. In this article we describe the use of a small, investigational 3-T MR customised for brain imaging and sited on a neonatal unit of a tertiary centre in the UK, which is in contrast to a 300-m journey to the whole-body MR scanner used at present for clinical...

Optic radiations are thinner and show signs of iron deposition in patients with long-standing remitting-relapsing multiple sclerosis: an enhanced T2*-weighted angiography imaging study

ObjectiveThis study aimed to investigate iron deposition and thickness and signal changes in optic radiation (OR) by enhanced T2*-weighted angiography imaging (ESWAN) in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) with unilateral and bilateral lesions or no lesions.MethodsFifty-one RRMS patients (42 patients with a disease duration [DD] ≥ 2 years [group Mor], nine...

Gout of hand and wrist: the value of US as compared with DECT

ObjectivesThe purpose of this study was to compare findings of ultrasound (US) with dual-energy CT (DECT) in patients presenting with suspected gouty hand and wrist arthritis.MethodsThis prospective study included 180 patients (136 men and 44 women, age range, 31– 94 years; mean age, 65.9 years) with an initial clinical diagnosis of acute gouty arthritis who underwent DECT and US...

Observer variability of reference tissue selection for relativecerebral blood volume measurements in glioma patients

ObjectivesTo assess observer variability of different reference tissues used for relative CBV (rCBV) measurements in DSC-MRI of glioma patients.MethodsIn this retrospective study, three observers measured rCBV in DSC-MR images of 44 glioma patients on two occasions. rCBV is calculated by the CBV in the tumour hotspot/the CBV of a reference tissue at the contralateral side for...

A simple method for bone age assessment: the capitohamate planimetry

ObjectivesTo determine if the capitohamate (CH) planimetry could be a reliable indicator of bone age, and to compare it with Greulich-Pyle (GP) method.MethodsThis retrospective study included 391 children (age, 1–180 months). Two reviewers manually measured the areas of the capitate and hamate on plain radiographs. CH planimetry was defined as the measurement of the sum of areas...
