Hepatic adenomas: imaging and pathologic findings.
Hepatocellular adenoma is a rare benign lesion that is most often seen in young women with a history of oral contraceptive use. It is typically solitary, although multiple lesions have been reported,Expand
Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma: imaging and pathologic findings in 31 recent cases.
PURPOSE To review characteristic findings of fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) at computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. MATERIALS AND METHODS The authorsExpand
Imaging study of early hepatocellular carcinoma: usefulness of gadoxetic acid-enhanced MR imaging.
PURPOSE To describe imaging findings of early hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) at gadoxetic acid-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, dynamic contrast material-enhanced computed tomography (CT),Expand
Liver parenchymal enhancement of hepatocyte‐phase images in Gd‐EOB‐DTPA‐enhanced MR imaging: Which biological markers of the liver function affect the enhancement?
To clarify the factors that predict enhancement of the liver parenchyma in hepatocyte‐phase of gadolinium ethoxybenzyl diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (Gd‐EOB‐DTPA)‐enhanced MR imaging.
Ganglioneuroma: computed tomography and magnetic resonance features.
12 patients who had histological proven ganglioneuromas were investigated by computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. CT scans (n = 11), conventional spin-echo MR images (n = 10)Expand
Diffusion-Weighted MR Imaging in the Evaluation of Pancreatic Exocrine Function Before and After Secretin Stimulation
OBJECTIVES: To evaluate diffusion weighted MR imaging before and after secretin stimulation in the assessment of pancreatic exocrine function in the setting of chronic pancreatitis.METHODS: NineExpand
Duct-penetrating sign at MRCP: usefulness for differentiating inflammatory pancreatic mass from pancreatic carcinomas.
PURPOSE To define the duct-penetrating sign at magnetic resonance (MR) cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) and to assess the usefulness of this sign for distinguishing an inflammatory pancreatic massExpand
Distinguishing hypervascular pseudolesions of the liver from hypervascular hepatocellular carcinomas with gadoxetic acid-enhanced MR imaging.
PURPOSE To retrospectively determine findings at gadoxetic acid-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in hypervascular pseudolesions that were observed at computed tomography (CT) during hepaticExpand
Liver adenomatosis: clinical, histopathologic, and imaging findings in 15 patients.
PURPOSE To report and correlate the clinical, histopathologic, and imaging findings in 15 patients with liver adenomatosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifteen adult patients had more than 10 hepaticExpand
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma: preoperative assessment with helical CT versus dynamic MR imaging.
PURPOSE To compare helical computed tomography (CT) and dynamic, magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the evaluation of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Dynamic MR imagesExpand
