AIM To document the computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of acinar cell carcinoma of the pancreas and to correlate them with pathological findings to determine the unique imaging manifestations of this rare subtype tumour of the pancreas. MATERIALS AND METHODS From January 1986 to August 2008, six patients (five men and(More)
This study was designed to assess the clinical usefulness of imaging for predicting the prognosis of patients with combined hepatocellular cholangiocarcinoma (cHCC-CC). Between 1999 and 2004, 30 patients with histopathologically proven cHCC-CC underwent computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The imaging data and survival were(More)
AIM To evaluate the safety and efficacy of computed tomography (CT)-guided percutaneous fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) of pancreatic masses that traverses the gastrointestinal tract or solid viscera. MATERIALS AND METHODS From January 2002 to December 2012, 144 patients underwent 165 CT-guided biopsies of pancreatic masses. Biopsies were performed(More)
BACKGROUNDS/AIMS Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma and colorectal cancer liver metastasis are the most primary and secondary adenocarcinoma of the liver, respectively. A large-scale long-term comparative study of these two cohort patient is lacking. METHODS A total of 166 colorectal cancer liver metastasis patients and 206 intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma(More)
AIM To compare the safety and efficacy of percutaneous computed tomography (CT)-guided core-needle biopsy (CNB) of pancreatic masses traversing the gastrointestinal tract or solid viscera versus trans-mesenteric and retroperitoneal approaches. MATERIALS AND METHODS CT-guided CNB of pancreatic lesions performed between May 2004 and December 2014 were(More)
