OBJECTIVES To assess the differences between normal and cirrhotic livers by means of T1 mapping of liver parenchyma on gadoxetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA)-enhanced 3 Tesla (3T) MR imaging (MRI). METHODS 162 patients with normal (n = 96) and cirrhotic livers (n = 66; Child-Pugh class A, n = 30; B, n = 28; C, n = 8) underwent Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced 3T MRI. To obtain… (More)
BACKGROUND Correct characterization of focal solid hepatic lesions has always been a challenge and is of great diagnostic and therapeutic relevance. The purpose of this study was to determine the added value of hepatobiliary phase images in Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for differentiating focal solid hepatic lesions. METHODS In… (More)
PURPOSE To evaluate risk factors associated with alterations in venous structures adjacent to an ablation zone after percutaneous irreversible electroporation (IRE) of hepatic malignancies at subacute follow-up (1 to 3 days after IRE) and to describe evolution of these alterations at mid-term follow-up. MATERIALS AND METHODS 43 patients (men/women, 32/11;… (More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to calculate the effective dose during fluoroscopy-guided pediatric interventional procedures of the liver in a phantom model before and after adjustment of preset parameters. METHODS Organ doses were measured in three anthropomorphic Rando-Alderson phantoms representing children at various age and body weight (newborn… (More)

Posttraumatic pseudoaneurysms of the lateral plantar artery are rare. We report the case of a 31-year-old woman with a painful pseudoaneurysm of the lateral plantar artery resulting from a deep plantar cut injury. The pseudoaneurysm was successfully treated by performing a transarterial "frontdoor-backdoor" coil embolization technique, which is a minimally… (More)
