To evaluate the ability of contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in monitoring percutaneous thermal ablation procedure in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in comparison with contrast enhanced computed tomography (CECT) and/or magnetic resonance imaging (CEMRI). A total of 151 patients were enrolled in the study. Before the radio-frequency (RF) or(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatic angiomyolipoma (HAML) is a rare tumor containing a variable amount of fat, vessels and smooth muscle. We report the image findings on ultrasonography and computed tomography (CT) of huge HAML. METHOD The clinical, imaging and pathological data of a case of HAML were retrospectively collected and analyzed. RESULTS A huge heterogeneous(More)
BACKGROUND Castleman's disease is a rare lymphoproliferative disease of unknown cause. Most multicentric cases described have been of the plasma-cell variety. This article presents a case of multicentric hyaline-vascular Castleman's disease in the retroperitoneum with the ultrasonographic and computed tomography (CT) imaging manifestations. METHODS During(More)
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has been widely reported as a minimally invasive treatment for liver tumours in adults, but has not been documented as a treatment for hepatoblastoma in a child. We report a 2-year-old boy with local recurrence of hepatoblastoma after partial hepatectomy. Percutaneous RFA was performed under real-time sonographic guidance.(More)
Arterioportal fistula (APF) is a rare cause of portal hypertension and may lead to death. APF can be congenital, post-traumatic, iatrogenic (transhepatic intervention or biopsy) or related to ruptured hepatic artery aneurysms. Congenital APF is a rare condition even in children. In this case report, we describe a 73-year-old woman diagnosed as APF by(More)
AIMS We assessed the role of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in the differential diagnosis between benign and malignant portal vein thrombosis (PVT) in patients who had liver tumors. METHODS Seventeen consecutive patients who had cirrhosis, liver tumors, and PVT were prospectively studied with CEUS. CEUS was performed at low mechanical index after(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the application of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) in diagnosis of inflammatory pseudotumor of liver (IPL). METHODS The contrast-enhanced untrasonography was performed in 32 cases of IPL and the results were retrospectively analyzed. RESULT Among total 32 cases, 21 had absent contrast enhancement (type I); 6 had rimlike or(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine whether contrast-enhanced sonography can improve the ability to differentiate branch duct intraductal mucinous neoplasms from serous cystadenomas of the pancreas compared to conventional (unenhanced) sonography alone. METHODS Between March 2008 and May 2012, there were 20 patients with branch duct(More)
We report a case of successful fused CT-sonographic imaging-guided percutaneous biopsy of an anterior mediastinal mass, which was visualized poorly with conventional sonography. Real-time sonography fused with CT can be useful for biopsy of anterior mediastinal masses that are not well visualized on conventional sonography.
BACKGROUND Percutaneous ethanol injection has been widely used as a non-surgical therapy for liver cancer, but it has some shortcomings such as local diffusion and unequal permeation. This study was designed to observe the volume, controllability and completeness of necrosis after injection of low concentration sodium hydroxide in the normal liver(More)
