BACKGROUND It is well documented that transarterial embolization (TAE) can successfully stop bleeding in renal trauma patients and reduce the failure rate of conservation treatment. However, there is no consensus on the indications for TAE. The aim of this study was to evaluate the criteria for computed tomography (CT) to predict the need for TAE for(More)
A 25-year-old woman had carcinosarcoma of uterine cervix after definitive treatment. One year later, local recurrent disease was found in the right posterior pelvis on FDG PET/CT. FDG PET/CT also disclosed an incidental intramural hypermetabolic lesion in the rectum, which seemed separate from the right pelvic lesion on contrast-enhanced CT. The rectal(More)
BACKGROUND Positron emission tomography-computed tomography using F-fluorodeoxyglucose (F-FDG PET/CT) has been widely used in oncology. Vascular invasion of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is associated with a high risk of tumor recurrence and low survival rates after liver transplantation (LT). This retrospective study determined the predictive value of(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Lung cancer screening using low-dose computed tomography (CT) has been reported to reduce lung cancer-specific mortality for smokers at high risk. However, despite different characteristics of lung cancer in Asia, there are few data concerning this specific population for screening. We aim to analyze the performance of lung cancer(More)
A 68-year-old man underwent serial F-FDG PET/CT scan follow-up for lung cancer. Then 5.5 years after the initial F-FDG PET/CT scan, the presumed benign bone tumor in the left clavicle showed markedly increased FDG uptake during follow-up; in contrast, the Tc-MDP bone scan paradoxically exhibited no apparent interval change since last bone scan 5.5 years(More)
BACKGROUND The prognostic significance of the new classification of lung adenocarcinoma proposed in the 2015 World Health Organization guideline has been validated. This study aimed to compare the preoperative classification of the adenocarcinoma subtype based on computed tomography-guided 18-gauge core needle biopsy (CTNB) or radial probe endobronchial(More)
Dopamine transporter (DAT) radiopharmaceuticals are capable of binding to the DAT with high selectivity, especially in the corpora striata, and have been widely used to evaluate parkinsonian disorder. However, only a few reports have mentioned about the extrastriatal pathologic DAT uptake. Herein we present an interesting case about the incidental discovery(More)
