OBJECTIVE In a small pilot study, we assessed whether early-phase dynamic contrast-enhanced MDCT can be used to detect bladder tumors and whether thin reconstruction improves the detection rate. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Thirty-six patients (30 with 59 cystoscopy-proven bladder cancers and six with normal bladders) underwent dynamic contrast-enhanced MDCT of the pelvis and abdomen. Images were obtained from the symphysis pubis to the diaphragm 70 seconds after injection of 100 mL of contrast… CONTINUE READING
