Accuracy of gadoxetic acid-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging for the diagnosis of sinusoidal obstruction syndrome in patients with chemotherapy-treated colorectal liver metastases
AbstractObjectiveTo assess whether reticular hypointensity on hepatobiliary phase images of gadoxetic acid-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (EOB-MRI) is a diagnostic finding of sinusoidalExpand

Chromosomal imbalances in Korean intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma by comparative genomic hybridization.
Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) arises from epithelial cells in the intrahepatic bile duct. Until now, only few reports have been available concerning the genetic changes during the progressionExpand

The Differential Imaging Features of Fat-Containing Tumors in the Peritoneal Cavity and Retroperitoneum: the Radiologic-Pathologic Correlation
There are a variety of fat-containing lesions that can arise in the intraperitoneal cavity and retroperitoneal space. Some of these fat-containing lesions, such as liposarcoma and retroperitonealExpand

Genetic Alterations in Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma as revealed by Degenerate Oligonucleotide Primed PCR-Comparative Genomic Hybridization
Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC), a malignant neoplasm of the biliary epithelium, is usually fatal because of difficulty in early diagnosis and lack of availability of effective therapy. TheExpand

Hepatic Splenosis Preoperatively Diagnosed as Hepatocellular Carcinoma in a Patient with Chronic Hepatitis B: A Case Report
We report on a case of hepatic splenosis. A 32-yr-old man underwent a splenectomy due to trauma at the age of 6. He had been diagnosed as being a chronic hepatitis B-virus carrier 16 yr prior to theExpand

Aberrant promoter CpG islands methylation of tumor suppressor genes in cholangiocarcinoma.
Aberrant DNA methylation of 5'-CpG islands located within gene promoters has been identified as a mechanism for transcriptional inactivation of tumor suppressor genes. To ascertain the mechanism ofExpand

Added value of smooth hypointense rim in the hepatobiliary phase of gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI in identifying tumour capsule and diagnosing hepatocellular carcinoma
ObjectivesTo examine the added value of considering smooth hypointense rim in the hepatobiliary phase (HBP) of gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI as capsule appearance for diagnosing tumour capsules andExpand

Effect of cetrorelix acetate on apoptosis and apoptosis regulatory factors in cultured uterine leiomyoma cells.
This report suggests the possibility that a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist initiates apoptosis not only by causing a sex hormone deficit by inhibiting GnRH secretion in theExpand

Clinicopathologic implication of hepatic progenitor cell marker expression in hepatoblastoma.
Hepatic progenitor cells (HPCs) are thought to play a role in hepatoblastoma, as hepatoblastomas are characterized by an immature histology and a wide variety of cell lineages. We aimed toExpand
