Is Dual-Energy CT beneficial for head and neck imaging?

Dual-energy is constantly gaining ground. This is also the case for head and neck imaging. This study may well encourage us to change our protocols. Article: Comparison of dual- and single-source dual-energy CT in head and neck imaging Authors: Matthias Stefan May,...

Brain deposition of gadolinium: position statement

This position paper from the European Gadolinium Retention Evaluation Consortium (GREC) Task Force position statement provides useful thoughts for analysis of this worrying situation, and the basis for future studies. Article: Standardized assessment of the signal...

Do you know the Inchworm sign?

This sign is found in case of bladder cancer. It provides information on the degree of microinvasion into the muscularis propria. When absent, the likehood of progression is higher. Article: Usefulness of the inchworm sign on DWI for predicting pT1 bladder cancer...

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...
