Clinical practice guidelines for gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) in Japan: English version
The English version of the Japanese Clinical Practice Guideline for GIST is presented, prepared by the GIST Guideline Subcommittee, and was published after assessment by the Guideline Evaluation Committee of JSCO. Expand
Diffusion-weighted imaging of surgically resected hepatocellular carcinoma: imaging characteristics and relationship among signal intensity, apparent diffusion coefficient, and histopathologic grade.
The histopathologic grade of HCC had no correlation with the ADC, but HCC tumors tended to show a higher signal on DWI as the histopathological grade rose, however, predicting the correct histopathology grade of each HCC before surgery on the basis of DWI findings was difficult because of the large overlap among Histopathologic grades.

Primary retroperitoneal neoplasms: CT and MR imaging findings with anatomic and pathologic diagnostic clues.
Attention to diagnostic clues is essential in making an accurate radiologic diagnosis of primary retroperitoneal tumors and in obtaining clinically significant information. Expand
Cystic lesions of the maxillomandibular region: MR imaging distinction of odontogenic keratocysts and ameloblastomas from other cysts.
From the MR findings of the walls, solid components, and the fluid contents, odontogenic keratocysts could be differentiated from ameloblastomas in all cases, although some other cysts showed MR findings similar to those of odontogenic ker atocysts. Expand
Hepatic pseudo-anisotropy: a specific artifact in hepatic diffusion-weighted images obtained with respiratory triggering
Hepatic pseudo-anisotropy is an artifact observed in hepatic diffusion-weighted imaging under respiratory triggering (RT-DWI) that originates from respiratory movement and ADC measurement of the liver is inaccurate, especially in non-cirrhotic patients. Expand
Carcinosarcoma of the uterus: MR findings
To clarify the imaging characteristics of carcinosarcomas, which are the most common malignant mixed epithelial and mesenchymal tumors (MEMTs) of the uterus, a large number of patients with these tumors have had their ovaries removed. Expand
Different mechanisms involved in interhemispheric transfer of visuomotor information
The results suggested that CUD depended on the interhemispheric transfer via the CC, and that C UD and redundancy gain involved different brain mechanisms. Expand
Cerebral aneurysms: detection and delineation using 3-D-CT angiography.
3-D-CT angiography of cerebral aneurysms could be performed routinely and was helpful in demonstrating the complex anatomy of cerebralAneurysm and surrounding structures and this technique will be of value in surgical planning. Expand
Spectrum of Epstein-Barr virus-related diseases: a pictorial review
The spectrum of EBV-related lymphoproliferative disorders and lymphomas are especially common in immunocompromised patients and awareness of their clinical settings and imaging spectrum contributes to early detection and early treatment of possibly life-threatening disorders. Expand
Postaortic left innominate vein: radiological assessment and pathogenesis.
Postaortic left innominate vein (PALIV) is a rare venous anomaly and the findings on plain chest radiographs have not been well described. Plain chest radiographs, CT and MR of nine adults known toExpand
