PURPOSE To prospectively evaluate the local efficacy of radiofrequency (RF) ablation of lung neoplasms, with a minimum follow-up period of 1 year. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty patients (34 men and 26 women; age range, 27-81 years; mean age, 66 years) with 100 lung tumors gave written informed consent to be enrolled in a prospective study that was approved(More)
PURPOSE To describe the appearance of hepatic tumors treated with radio-frequency (RF) ablation on computed tomographic (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) images and the pattern of residual tumor at the site of RF ablation and to assess prospectively the sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive CT and MR imaging values in the evaluation(More)
OBJECTIVE We describe the rates and potential risk factors of complications of radiofrequency ablation of hepatic tumors. SUBJECTS AND METHODS. Over a 5-year period, 312 patients underwent 350 sessions of radiofrequency ablation (124 intraoperative and 226 percutaneous) for treatment of 582 liver tumors including 115 hepatocellular carcinomas and 467(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the diagnostic accuracy of dual-energy contrast-enhanced digital mammography (CEDM) as an adjunct to mammography (MX) ± ultrasonography (US) with the diagnostic accuracy of MX ± US alone. One hundred ten consenting women with 148 breast lesions (84 malignant, 64 benign) underwent two-view dual-energy CEDM in addition(More)
To compare mammography (MG), contrast-enhanced spectral mammography (CESM), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the detection and size estimation of histologically proven breast cancers using postoperative histology as the gold standard. After ethical approval, 80 women with newly diagnosed breast cancer underwent MG, CESM, and MRI examinations. CESM(More)
PURPOSE To determine the diagnostic performance of Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse (ARFI) Virtual Touch IQ shear wave elastography in the discrimination of benign and malignant breast lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Conventional B-mode and elasticity imaging were used to evaluate 110 breast lesions. Elastographic assessment of breast tissue abnormalities(More)
The Breast Imaging Report and Data System (BIRADS) of the American College of Radiology (ACR) is today largely used in most of the countries where breast cancer screening is implemented. It is a tool defined to reduce variability between radiologists when creating the reports in mammography, ultrasonography or MRI. Some changes in the last version of the(More)
PURPOSE Because calcitonin level remains elevated after initial treatment in many medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) patients without evidence of disease in the usual imaging work-up, there is a need to define optimal imaging procedures. PATIENTS AND METHODS Fifty-five consecutive elevated calcitonin level MTC patients were enrolled to undergo neck and(More)
To assess and compare the performance of CT and 18F-FDG-PET/CT in the evaluation of peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC). Thirty consecutive patients with PC and scheduled for a surgery underwent a CT of the abdomen and pelvis and a whole-body 18F-FDG PET/CT. The extent of PC was assessed precisely using the peritoneal cancer index combining the distribution of(More)
Survival of metastatic gastroenteropancreatic well-differentiated endocrine carcinoma (GEP WDEC) is not well characterized. We evaluated the long-term outcome and prognostic factors for survival in 118 patients with distant metastases from GEP WDEC. Inclusion criteria were 1) pathological review by a single pathologist according to the present WHO criteria,(More)
