To investigate predictive factors for liver necrosis after transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) of neuroendocrine liver metastases. A total of 164 patients receiving 374 TACE were reviewed retrospectively to analyze predictive factors of liver necrosis. We analyzed patient age and sex; metastasis number and location; percentage of liver(More)
This study was designed to compare the accuracy of targeting and the radiation dose of bone biopsies performed either under fluoroscopic guidance using a cone-beam CT with real-time 3D image fusion software (FP-CBCT-guidance) or under conventional computed tomography guidance (CT-guidance). Sixty-eight consecutive patients with a bone lesion were(More)
To evaluate imaging changes occurring in a rat model of elastase-induced abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), with emphasis on the intraluminal thrombus (ILT) occurrence. The post-induction growth of the AAA diameter was characterized using ultrasound in 22 rats. ILT was reported on 13 rats that underwent 14 magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) 2-18 days(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively compare electromagnetic needle tracking (EMT) and freehand ultrasound (US)-guided liver biopsies. MATERIALS AND METHODS Among 60 consecutive US-guided liver biopsies performed by staff radiologists (senior operators) and residents (junior operators), 30 were performed freehand and 30 with EMT. Needle placement time, numbers of(More)
We report three cases of ureteral-iliac fistula (UIF) in patients referred for treatment of macroscopic haematuria. Though it is a classic aetiology of haematuria, it is often difficult to diagnose and the treatment is not yet standardized. A diagnostic evaluation in combination with multidisciplinary approach improves the prognosis of the patients.(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To evaluate the efficacy, tolerance, and outcomes of covered stents in the treatment of carotid blowout syndrome (CBS) in head and neck cancer patients. STUDY DESIGN Individual retrospective cohort study. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the medical and image files of all 20 consecutive head and neck cancer patients treated with(More)
