An accurate detection and characterization of focal liver lesions in patients with known primary extrahepatic malignancy are essential to define management and prognosis. OBJECTIVES To assess the diagnostic accuracy of the split-bolus multidetector-row computed(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of our study is to analyze survival, treatment-related morbidity, and safety in our experience of cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy. METHODS Sixty-four patients were treated. Survival curves were calculated according to the Kaplan-Meier method. Univariate and multivariate analyses were done, and Cox's(More)
BACKGROUND Currently computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) has become a widely accepted clinical tool in the diagnosis of acute pulmonary embolism (PE). OBJECTIVES To report split-bolus single-pass 64-multidetector-row CT (MDCT) protocol for diagnosis of PE. PATIENTS AND METHODS MDCT split-bolus results in 40 patients suspicious of PE were(More)
