Hepatocellular carcinoma detection: diagnostic performance of a simulated abbreviated MRI protocol combining diffusion-weighted and T1-weighted imaging at the delayed phase post gadoxetic acid
TLDR
AMRI using DWI and T1w-HBP has a clinically acceptable sensitivity and NPV for HCC detection and could serve as the basis for a future study assessing AMRI for H CC screening and surveillance.
Diffusion-weighted imaging of the liver in patients with chronic liver disease: comparison of monopolar and bipolar diffusion gradients for image quality and lesion detection.
TLDR
A comparison of diffusion-weighted imaging sequences using a bipolar versus a monopolar single-shot echo-planar imaging (EPI) gradient design for image quality and for lesion detection and characterization in patients with chronic liver disease concluded that ADC has a limited role for HCC characterization in Patients with liver disease.
Epstein–Barr virus‐associated smooth muscle tumors in children following solid organ transplantation: A review
TLDR
The aim of this review is to summarize the existing data regarding pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of EBV‐SMT.
Society of Abdominal Radiology (SAR) and European Society of Urogenital Radiology (ESUR) joint consensus statement for MR imaging of placenta accreta spectrum disorders
TLDR
MRI is a powerful adjunct to ultrasound and provides valuable information on the topography and depth of placental invasion and a standardized imaging protocol and reporting system ensures recognition of the salient features of PAS disorders.
White paper of the Society of Abdominal Radiology hepatocellular carcinoma diagnosis disease-focused panel on LI-RADS v2018 for CT and MRI
TLDR
An overview of the key changes including the removal of the requirement for visibility on antecedent surveillance ultrasound for LI-RADS 5 (LR-5) categorization, and adoption of the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network definition of threshold growth are provided.
Imaging and clinical assessment of functional defecatory disorders with emphasis on defecography
TLDR
A thorough overview of the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnostic criteria, clinical and imaging evaluation, and treatment options forFunctional defecation disorders is provided, with an emphasis on available diagnostic imaging tools such as defecography and conventional fluoroscopic methods.
Volumetric quantitative histogram analysis using diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging to differentiate HCC from other primary liver cancers
TLDR
The combination of quantitative ADC histogram parameters and LI-RADS categorization yielded the best prediction accuracy for distinction of HCC compared to ICC and combined HCC-ICC.
The gravid uterus: MR imaging and reporting of abnormal placentation
TLDR
MRI features and appropriate reporting ofplacenta previa and the placenta accreta spectrum are reviewed.
MR defecography technique: recommendations of the society of abdominal radiology’s disease-focused panel on pelvic floor imaging
TLDR
A set of consensus recommendations for MR defecography technique based on a survey of expert radiologists in the SAR pelvic floor dysfunction disease-focused panel are provided and can be used to develop a standardized imaging protocol.
CT/MR LI-RADS 2018: clinical implications and management recommendations
TLDR
This pictorial review discusses management recommendations associated with CT/MR LI-RADS observations, the rationale for the recommendations and the role of multidisciplinary management discussion, and a framework for standardized reporting is provided.
