OBJECTIVES To evaluate the additional value of computer-aided detection (CAD) in breast MRI by assessing radiologists' accuracy in discriminating benign from malignant breast lesions. METHODS A literature search was performed with inclusion of relevant studies using a commercially available CAD system with automatic colour mapping. Two independent(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess volumetric measurement variability in pulmonary nodules detected at low-dose chest CT with three reconstruction settings. METHODS The volume of 200 solid pulmonary nodules was measured three times using commercially available semi-automated software of low-dose chest CT data-sets reconstructed with 1 mm section thickness and a soft(More)
BACKGROUND There is no consensus on the most effective strategy (mammography or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)) for screening women with BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations. The effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of the Dutch, UK and US screening strategies, which involve mammography and MRI at different ages and intervals were evaluated in high-risk women with(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether quantitative multivoxel MRS improves the accuracy of MRI in the assessment of breast lesions. METHODS Twenty-five consecutive patients with 26 breast lesions ≥ 1 cm assessed as BI-RADS 3 or 4 with mammography underwent quantitative multivoxel MRS and contrast-enhanced MRI. The choline (Cho) concentration was calculated using(More)
BACKGROUND To optimize and validate intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) modeled diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) compared with the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) for semi-automated analysis of breast lesions using a multi-reader setup. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients (n = 176) with breast lesions (≥1 cm) and known pathology were prospectively(More)
