Ribs: unfolded

In order to examine radiologist’s detection rate of rib fractures in trauma CT when reading curved planar reformats (CPRs) instead of standard MPRs, 220 trauma CTs were retrospectively subjected to a software algorithm generating CPRs of the ribs.  Sensitivity and specificity of CPR was also assessed.

Key Points:

  • In major blunt trauma, rib fractures are diagnosed with Computed Tomography.
  • Image processing can unfold all ribs into a single plane.
  • Unfolded ribs can be ...

Predicting the histological response

Thirty-one patients were prospectively enrolled in this study to find out whether dual-phase 18 F-FDG PET/CT can predict the histological response after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) in osteosarcoma.

Key Points:
  • Pretreatment dual-phase FDG-PET was useful to predict histological response in osteosarcoma.
  • A combination of early and delayed PET may increase the predictive value.
  • Early/delayed SUV change of tumours significantly decreased after neoadjuvant chemotherapy.

Dear Editor,

Millet et al. published an article entitled ‘‘Value of CT findings to predict surgical ischemia in small bowel obstruction: A systematic review and meta-analysis’’ in European Radiology [1]. We are very interested in this article. The authors mentioned that “sufficient data were available to construct 2x2 contingency tables ...” in the study selection part and appendix E1 part. Jancelewicz’ study showed that the sensitivity and ...
