OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the value of dual energy spectral CT (DEsCT) imaging in preoperative diagnosis of insulinomas in comparison with conventional multi-detector CT (MDCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-five patients were included in this study with 14 underwent the conventional dual-phase CT imaging (from March 2009 to(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the usefulness of computed tomographic (CT) spectral imaging parameters in differentiating small (≤3 cm) hepatic hemangioma (HH) from small hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), with or without cirrhosis, during the late arterial phase (AP) and portal venous phase (PVP). MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective study was institutional(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to select the optimal monochromatic level for gemstone spectral imaging (GSI) to minimize both the image noise and beam-hardening artifacts (BHAs) in nonenhanced cranial computed tomography (CT). MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred subjects scanned with GSI mode on Discovery CT750HD were enrolled. Six sets of CT(More)
To evaluate and describe CT and endoscopic imaging findings in patients with pathologically confirmed gastrointestinal tract lymphangiomas. Findings from imaging examinations in 6 patients with pathologically confirmed lymphangioma were retrospectively reviewed (computed tomographic images obtained in 6 patients and endoscopic images obtained in 4 patients(More)
BACKGROUND UVB light can generate potentially harmful hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) in vivo, but it can also promote the beneficial proliferation and migration of melanocytes. The successful use of UVB monotherapy for treatment of vitiligo suggests that H(2)O(2) may have a biphasic effect on melanin synthesis and melanosome transfer. OBJECTIVE To study the(More)
To assess image quality and diagnostic accuracy of monochromatic imaging from spectral CT in patients with small HCC (≤3 cm). Twenty-seven patients with 31 HCC underwent spectral CT to generate conventional 140-kVp polychromatic images (group A) and monochromatic images with energy levels from 40 to 140 keV (group B) during the late arterial phase (LAP) and(More)
