Improved detection of focal liver lesions at MR imaging: multicenter comparison of gadoxetic acid-enhanced MR images with intraoperative findings.
PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of gadoxetic acid disodium-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for the detection of focal liver lesions, with results of histopathologic examinationExpand
Diagnostic efficacy of gadoxetic acid (Primovist)-enhanced MRI and spiral CT for a therapeutic strategy: comparison with intraoperative and histopathologic findings in focal liver lesions
A multicenter study has been employed to evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) using the new liver-specific contrast agent gadoxetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA, Primovist), asExpand
Hepatocellular carcinoma in the cirrhotic liver: double-contrast MR imaging for diagnosis.
PURPOSE To measure the sensitivity and accuracy of double-contrast magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the cirrhotic liver. MATERIALS AND METHODSExpand

The performance of the human eye and brain has failed to keep pace with the enormous technical progress in the first full century of radiology. Errors and variations in interpretation now representExpand
Hepatic lesion detection after superparamagnetic iron oxide enhancement: comparison of five T2-weighted sequences at 1.0 T by using alternative-free response receiver operating characteristic
PURPOSE To compare the accuracy of five T2-weighted sequences in the detection of liver lesion at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging after superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) enhancement. MATERIALSExpand
Hepatocellular carcinoma in cirrhotic livers: double-contrast thin-section MR imaging with pathologic correlation of explanted tissue.
OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to determine the sensitivity of double-contrast MR imaging in the detection of hepatocellular carcinomas in patients with a cirrhotic liver. SUBJECTS AND METHODSExpand
The Effect of Palate Repair on Otitis Media with Effusion
Cleft palate in children is very frequently associated with otitis media with effusion. In this prospective study of 150 cleft palate children aged between 2 and 18 months, the prevalence of otitisExpand
Liver metastases in candidates for hepatic resection: comparison of helical CT and gadolinium- and SPIO-enhanced MR imaging.
PURPOSE To prospectively compare accuracy of dynamic contrast material-enhanced thin-section multi-detector row helical computed tomography (CT), high-spatial-resolution three-dimensional (3D)Expand
Variation between experienced observers in the interpretation of accident and emergency radiographs.
Skill mix and role extension initiatives have highlighted the difficulty of establishing quality standards for the accuracy of plain film reporting. An acceptable performance might be one which isExpand
Dynamic contrast-enhanced MR imaging and dual-phase helical CT in the preoperative assessment of suspected pancreatic cancer: a comparative study with receiver operating characteristic analysis.
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare dynamic contrast-enhanced MR imaging and dual-phase helical CT in the preoperative assessment of patients with suspected pancreatic carcinoma. Expand
