OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to retrospectively determine the accuracy of CT for differentiating intrarenal transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) from centrally located renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and to define the most discriminating diagnostic CT features. MATERIALS AND METHODS CT studies of 98 pathologically proven central renal tumors (64(More)
Worldwide, ovarian cancer accounts for 4% of all female cancers with over 190,000 new cases diagnosed each year. The incidence rates vary considerably across the globe with the highest rates seen in Europe and the USA and low rates in Africa and Asia. Ovarian cancer has been termed a 'silent' killer with the majority of patients presenting with advanced(More)
OBJECTIVE Uterine malignant mixed müllerian tumors (MMMTs) are rare aggressive tumors with a high incidence of lymphatic, peritoneal, and pulmonary metastases. Preoperative differentiation from endometrial adenocarcinoma would be beneficial because their prognoses differ. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed MRI examinations of 51(More)
Epithelioid angiomyolipoma is a recently described rare variant of renal angiomyolipoma. It can occur in patients with or without tuberous sclerosis, and may potentially be malignant. We report the imaging findings from two cases of epithelioid angiomyolipoma: the first in a patient with tuberous sclerosis complex, arising in a horse-shoe kidney and growing(More)
Patients who undergo endovascular repair of aorto-iliac aneurysms (EVAR) require internal iliac artery (IIA) embolization (IIAE) to prevent type II endoleaks after extending the endografts into the external iliac artery. However, IIAE may not be possible in some patients due to technical factors or adverse anatomy. The aim of this study was to assess(More)
OBJECTIVE Endometrial cancer is the most common gynaecological malignancy in developed countries. Histological grade and subtype are important prognostic factors obtained by pipelle biopsy. However, pipelle biopsy "samples" tissue and a high-grade component that requires more aggressive treatment may be missed. The purpose of the study was to assess the use(More)
Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) is now widely used as a standard imaging sequence for evaluation of the liver. The technique is easy to implement across different MRI platforms, and results in enhanced disease detection and characterization. With careful implementation, the quantitative apparent diffusion coefficient derived shows(More)
Recent developments in chemotherapy have resulted in several new drug treatments for metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC). These therapies have shown improved progression-free survival and are applicable to many more patients than the conventional cytokine-based treatments for metastatic RCC. Consequently imaging is playing a greater part in the management(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess site of disease on preoperative computed tomography (CT) to predict surgical debulking in patients with ovarian cancer. DESIGN Two-phase retrospective cohort study. SETTING West London Gynaecological Cancer Centre, UK. POPULATION Women with stage 3 or 4, ovarian, fallopian or primary peritoneal cancer undergoing cytoreductive(More)
Treatments for gynecologic cancer usually result in loss of fertility due to surgery or radical radiation therapy in the pelvis. In countries with an established screening program for cervical cancer, the majority of gynecologic malignancies occur in postmenopausal women. However, a substantial number of affected women are of childbearing age and have not(More)
