This study highlights the better prognosis of ACC diagnosed at a noninvasive local stage, the particularly poor prog outlook of patients with cortisol-secreting tumors, and the beneficial effect of o,p'DDD therapy in this subgroup of patients.
Pancreatic tumors: comparison of dual-phase helical CT and endoscopic sonography.
Dual-phase helical CT and endoscopic sonography do not differ significantly for diagnosis and assessment of resectability of pancreatic tumors.
Corticotroph tumor progression after adrenalectomy in Cushing's Disease: A reappraisal of Nelson's Syndrome.
After adrenalectomy in Cushing's disease, one should no longer wait for the occurrence of Nelson's syndrome: modern imaging allows early detection and management of corticotroph tumor progression.
CT, endoscopic sonography, and a combined protocol for preoperative evaluation of pancreatic insulinomas.
The most effective method for revealing insulinomas is a combined imaging protocol that consists of both dual-phase thin-section multidetector CT and endoscopic sonography.
18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography for the diagnosis of adrenocortical tumors: a prospective study in 77 operated patients.
In a multidisciplinary team approach, (18)F-FDG PET helps to manage suspicious CT scan lesions and correctly predicted the benignity in 13 of 15 ACAs.
Efficiency and tolerance of mitotane in Cushing's disease in 76 patients from a single center.
Mitotane dose adjustment based on plasma concentration monitoring and side effects could control hypercortisolism in the majority of CD patients and is useful at different stages of CD.
Clinical significance of myocardial magnetic resonance abnormalities in patients with sarcoidosis: a 1-year follow-up study.
Cardiac MRI is a useful noninvasive method for the early diagnosis and follow-up of cardiac sarcoidosis and, in one patient, was predictive of clinical cardiac involvement.
Cardiac involvement in granulomatosis with polyangiitis: a magnetic resonance imaging study of 31 consecutive patients
CMR is an accurate technique for detecting heart involvement in GPA and may provide information with important clinical implications for the accurate early assessment of cardiac lesions in GPA patients and for detecting cumulative, irreversible damage.
Multiparametric MRI features of granulomatous prostatitis and tubercular prostate abscess.
Effects of corticosteroids and immunosuppressors on idiopathic inflammatory myopathy related myocarditis evaluated by magnetic resonance imaging
Treatment with intravenous methylprednisolone followed by prednisone and immunosuppressive therapy seems to be effective for treating myocardial involvement in patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies, either alone or presenting as overlap syndromes.
