Abstract Purpose To assess the interreader variability of submillisievert CT for lung cancer screening in radiologists with various experience levels. Method Six radiologists with different degrees of clinical experience in radiology (range, 1-15 years), rated 100 submillisievert CT chest studies as either negative screening finding (no nodules, benign nodules, nodules 10 mm). Each radiologist interpreted scans randomly ordered and reading time was recorded. Interobserver agreement was assessed ...

Despite its crucial role, the placenta is the least understood human organ. Recent clinical studies indicate a direct association between placental calcification and maternal and offspring health. This study reveals distinct characteristics of minerals formed during gestational ageing using cutting-edge nano-analytical characterization and paves the way for investigations focused on the identification of potential markers for disease risks in a clinical setting based on atypical placental minera...

Rationale and Objectives To determine the value of chest CT with tin filtration applying a dose equivalent to chest x-ray for the assessment of the Haller index for evaluation of pectus excavatum. Materials and Methods Two hundred seventy-two patients from a prospective single center study were included and underwent a clinical standard dose chest CT (effective dose 1.8 ± 0.7 mSv) followed by a low-dose CT (0.13 ± 0.01 mSv) in the same session. Two blinded readers independently evaluated all dat...

Abstract Objective To determine whether coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) should be performed in patients with any clinical probability of coronary artery disease (CAD), and whether the diagnostic performance differs between subgroups of patients. Design Prospectively designed meta-analysis of individual patient data from prospective diagnostic accuracy studies. Data sources Medline, Embase, and Web of Science for published studies. Unpublished studies were identified via direct con...

Background Response to immune checkpoint inhibitors depends on tumor intrinsic properties and also on host factors in the tumour microenvironment including the presence of immune cells (IC). We hypothesized that nivolumab efficacy varies across different metastatic sites.
