Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Studies Evaluating Diagnostic Test Accuracy: A Practical Review for Clinical Researchers-Part II. Statistical Methods of Meta-Analysis
Meta-analysis of diagnostic test accuracy studies differs from the usual meta-analysis of therapeutic/interventional studies in that, it is required to simultaneously analyze a pair of two outcomeExpand
Percutaneous CT-guided aspiration and core biopsy of pulmonary nodules smaller than 1 cm: analysis of outcomes of 305 procedures from a tertiary referral center.
OBJECTIVE We conducted a retrospective analysis to evaluate the diagnostic outcomes of CT-guided aspiration and core biopsy of 305 pulmonary nodules measuring less than 1 cm. MATERIALS AND METHODSExpand
Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Studies Evaluating Diagnostic Test Accuracy: A Practical Review for Clinical Researchers-Part I. General Guidance and Tips
In the field of diagnostic test accuracy (DTA), the use of systematic review and meta-analyses is steadily increasing. By means of objective evaluation of all available primary studies, these twoExpand
Thyroid nodules with initially non-diagnostic, fine-needle aspiration results: comparison of core-needle biopsy and repeated fine-needle aspiration
AbstractObjectiveTo evaluate the role of core-needle biopsy (CNB) by comparing the results of CNB and repeated fine-needle aspiration (FNA) for thyroid nodules with initially non-diagnostic FNAExpand
LI-RADS Classification and Prognosis of Primary Liver Cancers at Gadoxetic Acid-enhanced MRI.
Purpose To (a) evaluate the postsurgical prognostic implication of the Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System (LI-RADS) categories of primary liver cancers and (b) determine the performance ofExpand
Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System v2014 With Gadoxetate Disodium–Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Validation of LI-RADS Category 4 and 5 Criteria
ObjectivesThe aim of this study was to validate the Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System (LI-RADS) v2014 category 4 (LR-4) and 5 (LR-5) criteria on gadoxetate disodium–enhanced magnetic resonanceExpand
Diagnostic criteria for hepatocellular carcinoma ⩽3 cm with hepatocyte-specific contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Current diagnostic imaging criteria for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are dedicated to imaging with nonspecific extracellular contrast agents. This study aimed to evaluateExpand
Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma in Patients with Cirrhosis: Differentiation from Hepatocellular Carcinoma by Using Gadoxetic Acid-enhanced MR Imaging and Dynamic CT.
Purpose To determine the imaging features at gadoxetic acid-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (IHCC) in a cirrhotic liver, with an emphasis on theExpand
Progression of Unresected Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms of the Pancreas to Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta‐analysis
BACKGROUND & AIMS: It is not clear how best to manage patients with low‐risk intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) of the pancreas because little is known about IPMN progression to cancer.Expand
Diagnosis of Metastasis to the Thyroid Gland
Objectives Early detection and diagnosis of metastasis to the thyroid gland is important. This study aims to evaluate the clinical value of core-needle biopsy (CNB) by comparing the results of CNBExpand
