Comparison of the diagnostic performance of the 2017 and 2018 versions of LI-RADS for hepatocellular carcinoma on gadoxetic acid enhanced MRI.
TLDR
In LI-RADS v2018, although a considerable number of observations re-classified subthreshold growth, changes in the assigned categories were insignificant; overall diagnostic performance was comparable to that of v2017, but v2018 might emphasise the value of ancillary features in combination with major features for determining the probability of HCC.

Targetoid hepatic observations on gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI using LI-RADS version 2018: emphasis on hepatocellular carcinomas assigned to the LR-M category.
TLDR
An intratumoural septum and non-targetoid restriction as well as enhancing capsule and blood products in the mass may be useful for differentiating HCC assigned to LR-M from non-HCC malignancy on gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI. Expand
Integration of different criteria for borderline resectable pancreatic cancer using classification tree analysis: the use of radiological tumour-vascular interface in correlation with surgical and
TLDR
Various criteria for borderline resectable pancreatic cancer (BRPC) based on radiological parameters were integrated using classification tree analysis, and a modified criterion for BRPC, which provides satisfactory results, was established. Expand
Questionable correlation of the apparent diffusion coefficient with the histological grade and microvascular invasion in small hepatocellular carcinoma.
TLDR
The tumour grade of small HCCs was not correlated with ADC parameters, and the tumour-to-liver ADC ratio was a significant independent parameter for the degree of lymphocyte infiltration and MVI of smallHCCs. Expand
