This study was undertaken to compare the accuracy of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and 64-slice multidetector computed tomography (64-MDCT) in the T staging of gastric carcinoma in comparison with histopathology. Forty patients with an endoscopic diagnosis of gastric carcinoma underwent preoperative MR imaging and 64-MDCT, both of which were performed(More)
To assess interobserver variability of R.E.N.A.L., preoperative aspects and dimensions used for an anatomical classification system (PADUA), and centrality index (C-Index) systems among observers with varying degrees of clinical experience and each system’s subscale correlation with surgical outcome metrics. Computed tomography images of 90 patients who(More)
This study was undertaken to prospectively evaluate the diagnostic performance of colour Doppler ultrasonography (CDUS), first-pass (FP) and steady-state (SS) contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) and computed tomography angiography (CTA) of the carotid arteries using digital subtraction angiography (DSA) as the reference standard. A total(More)
The authors performed a preliminary study with blood-pool contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) in evaluating the degree of carotid artery stenosis and plaque morphology, comparing the diagnostic performance of first-pass (FP) and steady-state (SS) acquisitions with 64-slice computed tomography angiography (CTA) and using digital(More)
The aim of this study was to validate a 64-row multidetector computed tomography (64-MDCT) acquisition protocol with biphasic administration of contrast medium for comprehensive assessment of the coronary and systemic arterial tree in a single examination. The scanning protocol comprised two acquisitions: an electrocardiograph (ECG)-gated scan at the level(More)
This study was performed to validate a highresolution whole-body magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) protocol with parallel imaging and biphasic administration of a single bolus of contrast agent in the preliminary assessment of systemic atherosclerotic burden in patients referred for endovascular procedures. Forty patients referred for endovascular(More)
Methods 14 patients with biopsy proven focal T2 prostate cancer (low-to-intermediate risk: PSA max 12 and Gleason max 3+4), confirmed on a previous multiparametric MR exam (Discovery 750, GE) including dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) imaging (Gd-BOPTA, Bracco), underwent MRgFUS ablation (ExAblate, InSightec). 1 patient had already performed radiotherapy(More)
The discovery of solar-driven water splitting catalysts with high activity and stability has been instrumental for storing solar energy to chemical fuels that can satisfy the increasing demand of sustainable energy. Ru-based catalysts continue to serve as the springboard for the development of solar energy conversion into chemical fuels. It is clear that(More)
