BACKGROUND This study aimed to investigate whether diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) could contribute to the discrimination between benign and malignant renal cancer. METHODS We searched the PubMed electronic database for eligible studies. STATA 12.0 software was used for statistical analysis. The SMD and 95% CI were calculated. RESULTS Decreased ADC(More)
The authors designed a chemical genomics screen with the aim of understanding genes and pathways that modulate neural stem/precursor cell differentiation. Multipotent mouse neural precursor cells isolated from cortices of embryonic day 12 (E12) embryos were subjected to spontaneous differentiation triggered by growth factor withdrawal. A quantitative(More)
We used intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to explore the possibility of preoperative diagnosis of soft tissue tumors (STTs). This prospective study enrolled 23 patients. Conventional MRI and IVIM examinations were performed on a 3.0T MR imager. Eight (35%) hemangiomas, 11 (47%) benign soft tissue tumors excluding(More)
To determine the clinical value of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) measurement by diffusion weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) in differentiating renal tumors. Electronic databases were searched using combinations of keywords and free words relating to renal tumor, ADC and DW-MRI. Based on carefully selected inclusion and exclusion criteria,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the feasibility of applying R2* values to differentiate hepatocellular carcinomas (HCC) from cavernous hemangiomas of the liver (CHL). MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study was approved by the participating Institutional Review Board and written informed consent for all subjects were obtained. Seventy-three patients with 79(More)
