PURPOSE To evaluate whether gadoxetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA)-enhanced MR images of tumors taken during the hepatocyte-specific phase can aid in the differentiation between hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and dysplastic nodules (DNs) in patients with atypical cirrhotic nodules detected on dynamic CT images. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-one patients with 112(More)
PURPOSE Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a non-invasive cancerous breast lesion; however, from 10% to 50% of patients with DCIS diagnosed by core needle biopsy (CNB) or vacuum-assisted core biopsy (VACB) are shown to have invasive carcinoma after surgical excision. In this study, we evaluated whether preoperative clinicopathologic factors and breast(More)
BACKGROUND Gadoxetic acid is one of the hepatobiliary-specific agents and so can be used for contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance cholangiography (CE-MRC). The aim of our study was to compare the performance of CE-MRC with that of T2-weighted magnetic resonance cholangiography (T2W-MRC), and also to ascertain the effectiveness of both modalities combined(More)
PURPOSE To compare the accuracy of magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) with that of aspartate aminotransferase-to-platelet ratio index (APRI) for estimating the stage of hepatic fibrosis in patients with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) or chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively enrolled 160 patients with(More)
