Hepatocellular carcinoma in the cirrhotic liver: double-contrast MR imaging for diagnosis.
PURPOSE To measure the sensitivity and accuracy of double-contrast magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the cirrhotic liver. MATERIALS AND METHODSExpand
Hepatic lesion detection after superparamagnetic iron oxide enhancement: comparison of five T2-weighted sequences at 1.0 T by using alternative-free response receiver operating characteristic
PURPOSE To compare the accuracy of five T2-weighted sequences in the detection of liver lesion at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging after superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) enhancement. MATERIALSExpand
Hepatocellular carcinoma in cirrhotic livers: double-contrast thin-section MR imaging with pathologic correlation of explanted tissue.
OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to determine the sensitivity of double-contrast MR imaging in the detection of hepatocellular carcinomas in patients with a cirrhotic liver. SUBJECTS AND METHODSExpand
Liver metastases in candidates for hepatic resection: comparison of helical CT and gadolinium- and SPIO-enhanced MR imaging.
PURPOSE To prospectively compare accuracy of dynamic contrast material-enhanced thin-section multi-detector row helical computed tomography (CT), high-spatial-resolution three-dimensional (3D)Expand
Dynamic contrast-enhanced MR imaging and dual-phase helical CT in the preoperative assessment of suspected pancreatic cancer: a comparative study with receiver operating characteristic analysis.
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare dynamic contrast-enhanced MR imaging and dual-phase helical CT in the preoperative assessment of patients with suspected pancreatic carcinoma. Expand
T2-weighted and dynamic enhanced MRI in acute pancreatitis: comparison with contrast enhanced CT.
The purpose of this study was to compare T2-weighted and dynamic contrast enhanced MRI with contrast enhanced CT in patients with severe acute pancreatitis. Thirty-two patients were examined usingExpand

It is well established that hepatic resection improves the long-term prognosis of many patients with liver metastases. However, incomplete resection does not prolong survival, so knowledge of theExpand
Hepatic lesion detection: comparison of MR imaging after the administration of superparamagnetic iron oxide with dual-phase CT by using alternative-free response receiver operating characteristic
PURPOSE To compare the performance of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging after the administration of superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) and dual-phase computed tomography (CT) in the depiction of liverExpand
Hilar cholangiocarcinomas: T2-weighted spin-echo and gadolinium-enhanced FLASH MR imaging.
PURPOSE To investigate the use of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with dynamic gadopentetate dimeglumine enhancement in hilar cholangiocarcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-four patients (14 men,Expand
How to detect hepatocellular carcinoma in cirrhosis
Abstract. Cirrhosis predisposes to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) which develops by sequential steps of de-differentiation of hepatocytes from regenerative nodules via borderline (dysplastic) nodulesExpand
