To assess the actual diagnostic impact of digital tomosynthesis (DTS) in oncologic patients with suspected pulmonary lesions on chest radiography (CXR). A total of 237 patients (135 male, 102 female; age, 70.8 ± 10.4 years) with a known primary malignancy and suspected pulmonary lesion(s) on CXR and who underwent DTS were retrospectively identified. Two(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate diagnostic imaging costs before and after DTS implementation in patients with suspected thoracic lesions on CXR. METHODS Four hundred sixty-five patients (263 male, 202 female; age, 72.47 ± 11.33 years) with suspected thoracic lesion(s) after CXR underwent DTS. Each patient underwent CT when a pulmonary non-calcified lesion was(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the value of time-intensity curves obtained after sulphur hefluoride-filled microbubble contrast agent injection to discriminate responders from non-responders among patients with Crohn's disease (CD). METHODS Forty-three patients (29 male and 14 female; mean age ± SD, 48.5 ± 17.17 years) with initial diagnosis of active CD were(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To assess the capability of digital tomosynthesis (DTS) as a problem-solving imaging technique to confirm or exclude potential thoracic lesions based on chest x-ray radiography (CXR). MATERIALS AND METHODS Four hundred and-sixty five patients (263 male, 202 female; age, 72.47 ± 11.33 years) with suspected thoracic lesion(s) after(More)
PURPOSE This study was done to assess the clinical-diagnostic impact and cost of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) versus computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the characterisation of focal liver lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS CEUS with sulphur hexafluoride-filled microbubbles (SonoVue bolus 2.4 ml) was performed in 157(More)
UNLABELLED Malignant mesothelioma is doubtless the more known pleural tumour. However, according to the morphology code of the International Classification of Diseases for Oncology (ICD-O), there are several histological types of pleural neoplasms, divided into mesothelial, mesenchymal and lymphoproliferative tumours, that may be misdiagnosed.
