Screening for breast cancer reduces breast cancer-related mortality and earlier detection facilitates less aggressive treatment. Unfortunately, current screening modalities are imperfect, suffering from limited sensitivity and high false-positive…

This multidisciplinary update of the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound consensus statement on liver elastography incorporates the large volume of new information available in the literature since the initial publication. The recommended procedure…

Positron emission tomography (PET), with the use of F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG), has been shown to be useful in the evaluation of many tumors as a result of its high sensitivity and specificity. There are instances, however, in which false-positive…

Objectives-The purpose of this study was to determine whether the elasticity imaging/B-mode ratio on strain elastography can predict breast cancer tumor grades. Methods-A retrospective review of patients with breast lesions who underwent strain…

Purpose: To prospectively evaluate the performance of real-time ultrasonographic (US) shear-wave elastography (SWE) in the diagnosis of peripheral zone prostate cancer in patients with high and/or increasing prostate-specific antigen levels and/or…

PURPOSE: High-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy boost in prostate cancer allows dose escalation and delivery of higher biologically effective dose (BED). We evaluated the outcomes of intensitymodulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and HDR boost in a…

Aortic pseudocoarctation is a congenital abnormality consisting of an elongated aortic arch with a kink at level of the isthmus. However, unlike coarctation, significant flow obstruction is not associated with pseudocoarctation, although there is an…

OBJECTIVE. We sought to compare image quality, contrast enhancement, and radiation dose in patients undergoing ECG-triggered high-pitch helical CT or non-ECG-synchronized helical CT of the thoracoabdominal aorta. MATERIALS AND METHODS. We…
