AbstractBackground: The purpose of our study was to evaluate the imaging features and patterns of contrast enhancement in peripheral cholangiocarcinomas with computed tomography (CT) and correlate these features with histologic findings when available. Methods: We reviewed the CT scans of 24 patients with 25 peripheral cholangiocarcinomas proved by orthotopic liver transplantation (n= 1), liver resection (n= 7), percutaneous needle biopsy (n= 10), and fine needle aspiration biopsy (n= 6… 

‘Hepatic tuberculosis: a sheep in wolf’s clothing’. Author response

The main purpose of the present study was to sensitize readers regarding localized forms of hepatic tuberculosis as a cancer mimic so that HTB will be considered as a differential diagnosis while evaluating liver lesions.

Common CT findings of cholangiocarcinoma at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital ( KCMH )

Most of cholangiocarcinoma tumors of each type showed enhancement in the portovenous phase (77.8%) and the delayed phase (95%).

Endoscopic Ultrasound/Fine Needle Aspiration Is Effective for Lymph Node Staging in Patients With Cholangiocarcinoma

Evaluating the staging impact of EUS for CCA, including analysis by subtype, finds its role in intrahepatic CCA (iCCA) is unclear.

Multimodality imaging of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.

Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas account for approximately 20% of cases of cholangiocarcinomas. Three growth patterns or morphologic subtypes exist, including mass-forming, periductal-infiltrating,

The current management of cholangiocarcinoma: A comparison of current guidelines.

Current guidelines onCC were reviewed to provide useful information and suggestions to help institutes and organizations all around the world to draft better guidelines on CC.

Intrahepatic peripheral cholangiocarcinoma (IPCC): comparison between perfusion ultrasound and CT imaging

The perfusion patterns of intrahepatic peripheral cholangiocarcinoma (IPCC) on contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) and dynamic computed tomography (CT) are compared to show enhancement discrepancy between delayed-phase CEUS (hypoechogenicity) and CT (hyperdensity).

Diagnosis of Cholangiocarcinoma

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) are recommended as the next step in the evaluation of extrahepatic CCA, which shows abrupt changes in ductal diameter with upstream ductal dilation.

Biomarkers of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma: diagnosis and response to therapy.

Potential biomarkers for ICC are discussed and how these markers can assist in diagnosis, monitor response to therapy, and potentially identify novel interventions for the treatment of ICC.

Cholangiocarcinoma: delayed CT contrast enhancement patterns.

Delayed tumoral contrast enhancement is a typical feature of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma and may aid in the detection and characterization of such lesions at CT.

Imaging of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma: 1. Peripheral cholangiocarcinoma.

The appearances of peripheral cholangiocarcinoma are reviewed and the various imaging techniques that can be used to evaluate this unusual tumor that is often resectable and potentially curable are discussed.

Hyperenhancing focal liver lesions: differential diagnosis with helical CT.

The purpose of this essay is to illustrate the spectrum of helical CT features of hyperenhancing liver lesions according to the phases of hepatic enhancement.

Contrast-enhanced CT of intrahepatic and hilar cholangiocarcinoma: delay time for optimal imaging.

Delayed CT images are helpful for tumor characterization and may improve observer confidence for the presence of tumor in patients who have intrahepatic or hilar cholangiocarcinoma.

Intrahepatic Peripheral Cholangiocarcinoma: Two‐Phased Dynamic Incremental CT and Pathologic Correlation

Two-phased dynamic incremental CT scans of 20 cholangiocarcinomas in 16 patients were carefully analyzed and found that most of the tumors appeared hypodense in the early phase and had increased CT numbers in their delayed images.

Peripheral cholangiocarcinoma and clonorchiasis: CT findings.

Peripheral cholangiocarcinoma should be the primary diagnostic consideration when these characteristic CT findings are detected in a noncirrhotic patient.

CT of hepatic tumors: prevalence and specificity of retraction of the adjacent liver capsule.

Capsular retraction of the liver adjacent to hepatic tumors is an uncommon CT finding that appears to be specific for malignant hepatic tumor types.

Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma: radiologic-pathologic correlation.

The following features may be helpful in differentiating ICAC from other primary intrahepatic tumors, particularly typical hepatocellular carcinoma: a homogeneously echogenic or high-attenuation appearance on images that reflects the uniform nature observed at pathologic examination, the presence of calcification, and the uncommon invasion of portal or hepatic veins.

Inflammatory pseudotumor of the liver: CT and sonographic findings.

CT and sonographic findings of inflammatory pseudotumor of the liver in two cases are described and awareness of this condition and recognition of its radiologic manifestation may guide a clinician to perform a liver biopsy instead of surgery.
