Objectives The aim of the study was to establish the setup and workflow for delivering focal MRI-guided high-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy for prostate cancer (PCA) and to assess patient comfort and safety aspects of MRI-guided single-fraction HDR.
Objectives We sought to determine the added value of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI) in the differentiation of pelvic insufficiency fracture (PIF) from bone metastasis after radiotherapy in cervical cancer patients.
Objectives To assess the discriminative power of a 5-min quantitative double-echo steady-state (qDESS) sequence for simultaneous T2 measurements of cartilage and meniscus, and structural knee osteoarthritis (OA) assessment, in a clinical OA population, using radiographic knee OA as reference standard.
Objectives To evaluate the feasibility of assessment of microvessel perfusion of pituitary adenomas with intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) imaging using single-shot turbo spin-echo-based diffusion-weighted imaging (SS-TSE-DWI).
To assess the spectrum of periprosthetic MRI findings after primary total hip arthroplasty (THA). This multi-center cohort study analyzed 31 asymptomatic patients (65.7 ± 12.7 years) and 27 symptomatic patients (62.3 ± 11.9 years) between 6 months and 2 years after THA. 1.5-T MRI was performed using Compressed Sensing SEMAC and high-bandwidth sequences. Femoral stem and acetabular cup were assessed for bone marrow edema, osteolysis, and periosteal reaction in Gruen zones and DeLee and Charnley z...
To compare the diagnostic performance of abbreviated MRI (AMRI) combined with multiphasic CT (mCT) with that of full-sequence gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI (EOB-MRI) in a hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)-screening cohort Consecutive patients at risk of HCC who underwent EOB-MRI and mCT within 3 months for evaluation of new 0.5–3-cm hepatic observations were retrospectively recruited from 3 centers. An AMRI protocol comprising hepatobiliary phase, T2- and diffusion-weighted imaging, and dual-echo seq...
Aim of the study Skeletal muscle metastases (SMM) are a rare entity, mainly detected at autopsy. Nevertheless, radiological and nuclear medicine imaging can contribute to the diagnosis with a significant impact on the treatment and prognosis of neoplastic patients. This study aimed to systematically review the features of SMM at imaging considering the primary tumors and the sites of occurrence.
