OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of Organ Effective Modulation (OEM) on objective and subjective image quality as well as the radiation dose needed for thoracoabdominal computed tomography (CT). METHOD This retrospective study included 196 consecutive patients who were referred to our institution for enhanced thoracoabdominal CT on a specific scanner.(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Three-dimensional (3D) printing is attracting increasing attention in the medical field. This study aimed to apply 3D printing to the production of hollow splenic artery aneurysm models for use in the simulation of endovascular treatment, and to evaluate the precision and accuracy of the simulation model. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Computed tomographic colonography (CTC) is reported to be feasible for screening of colorectal polyps; however, its efficacy in preoperative workup remains unknown. This study was done to define our CTC methodology and assess CTC's potential for preoperative examination in patients with colon cancer. METHODS A total of 86 colon cancer patients(More)
A case of multiple hepatocellular carcinomas with a severe intrahepatic arterioportal shunt that was successfully embolized with n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate with coaxial double-balloon occlusion prior to transcatheter arterial chemoembolization is presented. A proximal balloon positioned at the proper hepatic artery was used for flow control, and a coaxial(More)
This report describes perioperative hemodynamic monitoring of the common hepatic artery (CHA) during endovascular treatment of a pancreaticoduodenal arcade aneurysm, in a patient with celiac artery stenosis caused by the median arcuate ligament. Pressure monitoring was performed as a safety measure against critical complications such as liver ischemia. As(More)
