INTRODUCTION Gadoxetate-disodium is a liver-specific MR contrast agent absorbed by hepatocytes via organic anion transporting polypeptide 1B3 and is excreted into the biliary system by multidrug resistance-associated protein 2. It has been suggested that relative parenchymal enhancement on hepatocyte phase image is associated with hepatic function. However,(More)
The aim of this prospective study was to compare the painful subacromial gliding limitation of the supraspinatus tendon (SGLS) during dynamic ultrasonography, the features of magnetic resonance arthrography (MRA), and the maximum intra-articular injection volume to predict decreased joint capacity of the shoulder joint. Between January 2003 and August 2011,(More)
BACKGROUND Inadequate remnant liver volume is a major cause of postoperative liver failure. Preoperative portal vein embolization (PVE) is used clinically to prevent postoperative liver insufficiency.

This study investigated the efficacy of locoregional ultrasonography (LRUS) for the detection of recurrence in asymptomatic patients who underwent mastectomy and the impact of LRUS on prognosis. A total of 1796 LRUSs were performed in 874 asymptomatic patients who showed no clinical evidence of recurrence after mastectomy. Ultrasonography (US) results were(More)
