Preoperative distinction between focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) that should be managed conservatively and hepatocellular adenoma (HA) that should be resected remains difficult. The result is controversial management of these patients. The aims of this study were to report the value of modern imaging procedures for noninvasive diagnosis of these lesions, to(More)
Assessment of early therapeutic response using metabolic imaging is potentially useful to determine prognosis in aggressive lymphoma. Between January 2000 and January 2004, 90 patients with newly diagnosed aggressive lymphoma (median age 53 years, 94% diffuse large B-cell) were prospectively explored with [18F]fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission(More)
PURPOSE To retrospectively evaluate a respiratory-triggered diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging sequence combined with parallel acquisition to allow the calculation of pure molecular-based (D) and perfusion-related (D*, f) diffusion parameters, on the basis of the intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) theory, to determine if these(More)
Knowledge of age-related distribution patterns of cellular and fatty marrow is critical to the interpretation of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging studies. To determine such patterns, the authors retrospectively evaluated 70 examinations each of the skull, cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, pelvis, and proximal femur (420 examinations) in patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To design a whole-body MR protocol using exclusively diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) with respiratory gating and to assess its value for lesion detection and staging in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), with integrated FDG PET/CT as the reference standard. METHODS Fifteen patients underwent both whole-body DWI (b = 50, 400,(More)
PURPOSE To describe calcification in focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) of the liver, which poses a new problem for the differentiation of FNH from fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Ultrasound, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging findings of 357 FNH lesions diagnosed in the past 5 years in 295 patients (274(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of this study was to assess the prognostic value of early (18)F-FDG PET using standardized uptake value (SUV) compared with visual analysis in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). METHODS Ninety-two patients with newly diagnosed DLBCL underwent (18)F-FDG PET prospectively before and after 2 cycles of chemotherapy (at(More)
UNLABELLED Interim (18)F-FDG PET (after 1-4 cycles of chemotherapy) may be useful for tailoring a risk-adapted therapeutic strategy in lymphoma. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether semiquantification of standardized uptake values (SUVs) may help to improve the prognostic value of (18)F-FDG PET, compared with visual analysis, after 4 cycles(More)
More accurate noninvasive estimation of prostate size is important in therapeutic trials for benign prostatic hyperplasia. The accuracy of MRI and transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) in assessing prostate weight was evaluated in 48 patients who underwent radical prostatectomy for stage A or B cancer. The volume derived from the wet weight of the freshly excised(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this pilot study was to assess post-treatment apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) changes of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma lesions on respiratory-gated whole-body diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), with integrated (18)F-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) as the reference standard.
