Epicardial fat as an easy predictor of coronary artery disease

The amount of epicardial fat can be estimated on regular CT without gating. Measurements are robust. It is related to the presence of coronary artery disease. Article: Epicardial fat volume measured on nongated chest CT is a predictor of coronary artery disease...

Femoro-acetabular impingement: new developments

Correlation of imaging and surgical findings shows that 3DCT can determine the extent of intra-articular soft tissue damage seen during surgery. Article: Cam-type femoroacetabular impingement—correlations between alpha angle versus volumetric measurements and surgical...

Dual Energy CT and EGFR status in lung cancer

Mutations are important to consider in lung (and other) cancer, as they can influence response to treatment. Non-invasive imaging can help to identify the very common EGFR mutation. Article: Identification of epidermal growth factor receptor mutations in pulmonary...

Texture analysis facilitates the follow up of Acromegaly with MRI

Follow-up of Acromegaly is not easy, as it is related to the pituitary mass and to biochemical issues. It seems that texture analysis can bring new and valuable information for predicting the outcome. Article: Predicting response to somatostatin analogues in...

Grading HCC with Radiomics from MRI

Based on a large cohort, this study highlights how the grade of HCC can be approached with radiomics analysis of MRI images. Article: Predicting the grade of hepatocellular carcinoma based on non-contrast-enhanced MRI radiomics signature Authors: Minghui Wu, Hongna...

Predicting survival in lung cancer with CT

This study includes feature selection and internal and external validation of the findings and shows that radiomics, in addition to clinical information, predicts prognosis better than clinical data alone. Article: Development of a radiomics nomogram based on the 2D...
