Abbreviations: ACR ϭ American College of Radiology, RSNA ϭ Radiological Society of North America AS images, imaging reports, and medical records move online, radiologists need a unified language to organize and retrieve them. Standardized terminology is increasingly vital to the practice of medicine, as this enables the information in reports to be(More)
BACKGROUND Endovascular revascularization of chronic total occlusion (CTO) of the iliac arteries is rapidly becoming first-line treatment, with surgical aortofemoral bypass procedures reserved for failure of endovascular treatment. Percutaneous subintimal recanalization is the most common endovascular revascularization technique for CTO of the iliac(More)
PURPOSE To present the techniques for endovascular treatment of thrombosed filter-bearing inferior vena cavae (IVCs), along with short-term clinical and imaging follow-up. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 45 consecutive patients (17 females and 28 males), aged 19-79 years (mean age of 49 years), who had IVC filter placement complicated by symptomatic(More)
Eustachian valve (EV) endocarditis is extremely rare and often difficult to diagnose. An extensive review of the English literature has shown no report of EV endocarditis as a complication of the automatic implantable cardioverter defibrillator (AICD). A rare case is reported following AICD placement that was diagnosed by clinical findings of sepsis and(More)
Interpenetrating polymer networks of polyurethane and vinyl monomers such as polyacrylamide, polyvinyl pyrrolidone, poly(hydroxyethyl methacrylate) and poly(methyl methacrylate) were implanted intramuscularly in rabbits. Attempts were made to correlate the morphological aspects of the interpenetrating polymer networks to their histological response. A(More)

OBJECTIVES Existing prognostic models for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) have limitations. Analytic morphomics, a novel process to measure body composition using computational image-processing algorithms, may offer further prognostic information. The aim of this study was to develop and validate a prognostic model for HCC patients using body(More)
