Radiologic protection in pediatric radiology: ICRP recommendations

On Aug. 24, 2011, the US Joint Commission issued a sentinel event alert on radiation risk from diagnostic imaging that could change the way radiology departments are run in the near future [1]. The Joint Commission, cognizant of the benefits of diagnostic imaging, is also aware of the known risks of radiation dose for the development of cancer and the alarming increasing...

Quantitative Assessment of Diffusion-Weighted MR Imaging in Patients with Primary Rectal Cancer: Correlation with FDG-PET/CT

Purpose The aim of the study was to assess correlations between parameters on diffusion-weighted imaging and 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-d-glucose–positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) in rectal cancer. Procedures Thirty-three consecutive patients with pathologically confirmed rectal adenocarcinoma were included in this study. Apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC...

Deleted in Liver Cancer 2 (DLC2) Was Dispensable for Development and Its Deficiency Did Not Aggravate Hepatocarcinogenesis

DLC2 (deleted in liver cancer 2), a Rho GTPase-activating protein, was previously shown to be underexpressed in human hepatocellular carcinoma and has tumor suppressor functions in cell culture models. We generated DLC2-deficient mice to investigate the tumor suppressor role of DLC2 in hepatocarcinogenesis and the function of DLC2 in vivo. In this study, we found that, unlike...
