Do we still need positive enteric contrast for abdominal and pelvic CT?

This retrospective observational study evaluates the diagnostic accuracy of abdominal CT depending on the type of enteric contrast agent used. Multislice CTs of 2,008 patients were evaluated for delineation of intestinal segments and influence on diagnosis and diagnostic reliability exerted by the enteric contrast.

Key Points:
  • Neutral oral contrast ensures an equivalent delineation of the bowel.
  • Neutral contrast ensures a similar detection rate for intestinal pathologies.
  • Positive ...

Prostate cancer: how well can MRI predict pathological downgrading?

This study examined the diagnostic performance of pre-treatment 3T multiparametric MRI for predicting Gleason score downgrading after radical prostatectomy in 304 prostate cancer patients with Gleason score 3 + 4 on biopsy.

Key Points:
  • Diagnostic performance of T2-weighted-imaging + DWI was better than T2-weighted-imaging alone.
  • Diagnostic performance of T2-weighted-imaging + DWI was similar to T2-weighted-imaging + DWI + DCE-MRI.
  • Combining clinical and T2-weighted-imaging + DWI ...
