UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to compare (11)C-choline PET/CT with pelvic multiparametric MR imaging for detection of recurrent prostate carcinoma in patients with suspected recurrence after radical prostatectomy and to identify an optimal imaging method to restage these patients. METHODS This was a retrospective, single-institution study of 115(More)
Multiple techniques for stenting left main coronary artery (LMCA) bifurcation lesions exist, and an accurate understanding of normal LMCA anatomy is essential for proper diagnosis and therapeutic intervention for these lesions. The purpose of this paper is to identify various anatomic LMCA characteristics at the point of bifurcation and draw relevant(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to describe the imaging features of renal epithelioid angiomyolipoma (EAML), a rare subtype of angiomyolipoma, with clinical and pathologic correlation. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was a retrospective review of nine cases from a single institution in which total resection and preoperative imaging were performed(More)
Purpose To determine the interobserver reproducibility of the Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS) version 2 lexicon. Materials and Methods This retrospective HIPAA-compliant study was institutional review board-approved. Six radiologists from six separate institutions, all experienced in prostate magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, assessed(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the utility of DWI and dynamic contrast enhancement (DCE) in MRI at 3 T with an endorectal coil in identifying local prostate cancer recurrence after radical prostatectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty men underwent MRI for suspected local recurrence. The reference standards were histopathologic result,(More)
Patient-centered emergency diagnostic imaging relies on efficient communication and multispecialty care coordination to ensure optimal imaging utilization. The construct of the emergency diagnostic imaging care coordination cycle with three main phases (pretest, test, and posttest) provides a useful framework to evaluate care coordination in(More)
Ureteral injury is a well-known complication of radiofrequency ablation of renal tumors. Ureteral injury with cryoablation seems to be less common, but has been reported. Herein, the authors describe a technique that can be used to avoid direct ureteral injury during cryoablation of renal masses. Initial ice ball formation serves to fix the probe in the(More)
In May 2015, the Academic Emergency Medicine consensus conference “Diagnostic imaging in the emergency department: a research agenda to optimize utilization” was held. The goal of the conference was to develop a high-priority research agenda regarding emergency diagnostic imaging on which to base future research. In addition to representatives from the(More)
In the present report we aimed to analyze the incremental value of preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), in addition to clinical variables and clinically-derived nomograms, in predicting outcomes radical prostatectomy (RP). All Mayo Clinic RP patients who underwent preoperative 1.5-Tesla MRI with endo-rectal coil from 2003 to 2013 were identified.(More)
