  • MRI of anal canal: common anal and perianal disorders beyond fistulas:
           Part 2
    • Authors: Ayşe Erden
      Pages: 1353 - 1367
      Abstract: A broad spectrum of disease, from benign processes to life-threatening pathologies, can cause anal pain. MR imaging (MRI) has become increasingly widely used method over the past two decades for the evaluation of individuals with anorectal symptoms. Although imaging is rarely necessary to determine the etiology of the majority of cases, MRI is particularly useful as a noninvasive method of excluding severe neoplastic conditions. In this article, MRI findings of a number of pathologies such as anal and perianal neoplasms, hemorrhoidal disease, arteriovenous malformation of the perianal region, and anal sphincter lesions (defects, scarring, atrophy) which may lead to fecal incontinence are presented.

  • Rapid kV-switching single-source dual-energy CT ex vivo renal calculi
           characterization using a multiparametric approach: refining parameters on
           an expanded dataset
    • Authors: J. Scott Kriegshauser; Robert G. Paden; Miao He; Mitchell R. Humphreys; Steven I. Zell; Yinlin Fu; Teresa Wu; Mark D. Sugi; Alvin C. Silva

      Abstract: Purpose We aimed to determine the best algorithms for renal stone composition characterization using rapid kV-switching single-source dual-energy computed tomography (rsDECT) and a multiparametric approach after dataset expansion and refinement of variables. Methods rsDECT scans (80 and 140 kVp) were performed on 38 ex vivo 5- to 10-mm renal stones composed of uric acid (UA; n = 21), struvite (STR; n = 5), cystine (CYS; n = 5), and calcium oxalate monohydrate (COM; n = 7). Measurements were obtained for 17 variables: mean Hounsfield units (HU) at 11 monochromatic keV levels, effective Z, 2 iodine-water material basis pairs, and 3 mean monochromatic keV ratios (40/140, 70/120, 70/140). Analysis included using 5 multiparametric algorithms: Support Vector Machine, RandomTree, Artificial Neural Network, Naïve Bayes Tree, and Decision Tree (C4.5). Results Separating UA from non-UA stones was 100% accurate using multiple methods. For non-UA stones, using a 70-keV mean cutoff value of 694 HU had 100% accuracy for distinguishing COM from non-COM (CYS, STR) stones. The best result for distinguishing all 3 non-UA subtypes was obtained using RandomTree (15/17, 88%). Conclusions For stones 5 mm or larger, multiple methods can distinguish UA from non-UA and COM from non-COM stones with 100% accuracy. Thus, the choice for analysis is per the user’s preference. The best model for separating all three non-UA subtypes was 88% accurate, although with considerable individual overlap between CYS and STR stones. Larger, more diverse datasets, including in vivo data and technical improvements in material separation, may offer more guidance in distinguishing non-UA stone subtypes in the clinical setting.

  • Clinical utility of magnetic resonance imaging in the evaluation of
           pregnant females with suspected acute appendicitis
    • Authors: Borko Kereshi; Karen S. Lee; Bettina Siewert; Koenraad J. Mortele
      Pages: 1446 - 1455
      Abstract: Objectives To assess the diagnostic performance of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a large cohort of pregnant females with suspected acute appendicitis and to determine the frequency of non-appendiceal causes of abdominal pain identified by MRI in this population. Methods This HIPAA compliant, retrospective study was IRB-approved and informed consent was waived. 212 MRI exams were performed consecutively on pregnant women aged 17–47 years old suspected of having acute appendicitis; eight exams were excluded and analyzed separately due to equivocal findings or lack of clinical follow up. Radiology reports for the MRI and any preceding ultrasound exams were reviewed as well as the patients’ electronic medical record for surgical, pathological, or clinical follow up. Results Fifteen (7.3%) of 204 MRI scans were determined to be positive for appendicitis, 14 of which were proven on surgical pathology, and one was found to have ileocecal diverticulitis. Out of the remaining 189 scans, none were subsequently shown to have acute appendicitis either surgically or based on clinical follow up. Negative predictive value (NPV) was 100% and positive predictive value was 93.3%. Sensitivity and specificity were 100% and 99.5%, respectively. Non-appendiceal findings which may have accounted for the patient’s abdominal pain were seen in 91 (44.2%) of 189 scans. The most common extra-appendiceal causes of abdominal pain identified on MRI include degenerating fibroids (n = 11), significant hydronephrosis (n = 12), cholelithiasis (n = 6), and pyelonephritis (n = 3). Conclusion Our large study cohort of pregnant patients confirms MRI to be of high diagnostic value in the workup of acute appendicitis with 100% NPV and sensitivity and 99.5% specificity. Furthermore, an alternative diagnosis for abdominal pain in this patient population can be made in nearly half of MRI exams which are deemed negative for appendicitis.

      Pages: 1472 - 1477
      Abstract: Purpose The purpose of the study is to determine if clear cell renal cell cancer (RCC) subtype predicts efficacy in percutaneous radiofrequency (RF) ablation of RCC. Methods and materials Patients who underwent percutaneous RF ablation for histologically proven RCC subtypes were retrospectively reviewed. Group comparisons were done using univariate and multivariate logistic regression analysis to determine factors impacting primary, secondary, and total technique effectiveness. A p value less than 0.05 was considered significant. Results One hundred pathologically proven RCC lesions in 84 patients were analyzed. The median (mean) follow-up was 24 (27) months (range 1–106 months). Overall RF ablation primary, secondary and total technique effectiveness was 86%, 9%, and 95%, respectively. Clear cell subtype demonstrated worse treatment efficacy with primary, secondary, and total technique effectiveness of 42/55 (76.4%), 8/55 (14.5%), and 50/55 (90.9%), respectively. Non-clear cell subtypes had primary, secondary, and total technique effectiveness of 44/45(97.8%), 1/45 (2.2%), 45/45 (100%), respectively. The difference in primary (p = 0.002), secondary (p = 0.032), and total (p = 0.038) technique effectiveness between the two groups was statistically significant. Conclusion Clear cell RCC was a novel predictor of primary, secondary, and total technique efficacy in the percutaneous RF ablation of clear cell RCC.

    • Authors: Aina Venkatasamy; Tri Thai Huynh; Bénédicte Caron; Francis Veillon
      Pages: 1508 - 1509
      Abstract: The Hourglass sign is a useful imaging clue for diagnosing diaphragmatic ruptures with viscera herniation on multidetector CT, with a sensitivity ranging from 16% to 63% and a specificity around 98%–100%. This sign is also commonly found in the literature under the name “Collar sign,” first described in 1995 by Worthy et al. It refers to the waistlike constriction of the herniated structure at the site of the diaphragmatic rupture.

  • Synchronous colorectal cancer using CT colonography vs. other means: a
           systematic review and meta-analysis
    • Authors: Nicola Flor; Edoardo Zanchetta; Giovanni Di Leo; Miriam Mezzanzanica; Massimiliano Greco; Gianpaolo Carrafiello; Francesco Sardanelli
      Abstract: Objectives The objective of our study was to systematically review the evidence about synchronous colorectal cancer diagnosed with or without computed tomography colonography (CTC). Materials and methods Two systematic searches were performed (PubMed and EMBASE) for studies reporting the prevalence of synchronous colorectal cancer (CRC): one considering patients who underwent CTC and the another one considering patients who did not undergo CTC. A three-level analysis was performed to determine the prevalence of patients with synchronous CRC in both groups of studies. Heterogeneity was explored for multiple variables. Pooled prevalence and 95% confidence interval (CI) were calculated. A quality assessment (STROBE) was done for the studies. Results For CTC studies, among 2645 articles initially found, 21 including 1673 patients, published from 1997 to 2018, met the inclusion criteria. For non-CTC studies, among 6192 articles initially found, 27 including 111,873 patients published from 1974 to 2015 met the inclusion criteria. The pooled synchronous CRC prevalence was 5.7% (95% CI 4.7%–7.1%) for CTC studies, and 3.9% (95% CI 3.3%–4.4%) for non-CTC studies, with a significant difference (p = 0.004). A low heterogeneity was found for the CTC group (I2 = 10.3%), whereas a high heterogeneity was found in the non-CTC group of studies (I2 = 93.5%), and no significant explanatory variables were found. Of the 22 STROBE items, a mean of 18 (82%) was fulfilled by CTC studies, and a mean of 16 (73%) by non-CTC studies. Conclusions The prevalence of synchronous CRC was about 4–6%. The introduction of CTC is associated with a significant increase of the prevalence of synchronous CRCs.

  • Superb Micro-vascular Imaging (SMI): a Doppler ultrasound technique with
           potential to identify, classify, and follow up endoleaks in patients after
           Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR)
    • Abstract: Purpose The aim of the study was to assess the effectiveness of Superb Micro-vascular Imaging (SMI) as an alternative to Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) and Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) for endoleak detection and classification in patients followed up after endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). Materials and methods From May 2015 to January 2017, 30 patients underwent post-EVAR follow-up with Color Doppler Ultrasound (CDUS), CEUS, SMI, and CTA examinations. Aneurysmal sac diameter and graft patency were evaluated; endoleaks were identified and classified. Sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy values were calculated for each of the four diagnostic methods of endoleak detection. A percentage of agreement and Cohen’s Kappa coefficient were calculated for comparison of methods in terms of endoleak identification. Results CTA revealed fifteen endoleaks (50%): three type Ia, nine type II, and three type III. The sensitivity of CDUS, CEUS, and SMI relative to CTA was 27%, 100%, and 100%, respectively. Specificity was 93%, 93%, and 93%, respectively. Accuracy was 60%, 97%, and 97%, respectively. There were no differences between SMI and CEUS in terms of sensitivity, specificity, or accuracy (100%, 93%, and 97%). We do not observe statistically significant differences between CTA, CEUS, and SMI concerning endoleak identification ability. The weakest method in endoleak identification was CDUS. Conclusions The analysis showed that SMI is effective, repeatable, and comparable with the CEUS modality in identification endoleaks after EVAR; it may be considered as a potential tool to monitor patients after EVAR implantation, especially those with renal insufficiency or with an allergy to any contrast media.

  • Diagnostic performance of MRI for pregnant patients with clinically
           suspected appendicitis
    • Authors: Sung Ah Wi; Dae Jung Kim; Eun-Suk Cho; Kyoung Ah Kim
      Abstract: Purpose To evaluate the accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis of acute appendicitis in pregnant patients and the value of additional diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI). Methods A total of 125 pregnant patients with clinically suspected appendicitis who underwent 1.5 T MRI were enrolled between May 2011 and January 2016. During this period, two radiologists prospectively predicted acute appendicitis on MRI during daily interpretation. We retrospectively reviewed clinical records, and radiological results were correlated with surgical pathology and clinical outcomes. We calculated the sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of MRI for diagnosing acute appendicitis. We performed additional DWI between August 2014 and January 2016, and we calculated sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of MRI with or without DWI. Results The sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of MRI for acute appendicitis were 100%, 95%, and 96%, respectively. The sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of MRI without DWI (n = 72) vs. with DWI (n = 53) were 100%, 94.7%, and 95.8% versus 100%, 95%, and 96%, respectively. Conclusions MRI has high accuracy for the diagnosis of acute appendicitis in pregnant patients. Therefore, MRI is recommended for use as a first-line diagnostic test for pregnant patients with clinically suspected appendicitis.

  • Thermal ablation of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma: Safety, efficacy, and
           factors affecting local tumor progression
    • Authors: Edwin A. Takahashi; Kristin A. Kinsman; Grant D. Schmit; Thomas D. Atwell; John J. Schmitz; Brian T. Welch; Matthew R. Callstrom; Jennifer R. Geske; A. Nicholas Kurup
      Abstract: Purpose To evaluate the safety and oncologic efficacy of percutaneous thermal ablation of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) and identify risk factors for local tumor progression (LTP). Materials and methods Retrospective review of an institutional tumor ablation registry demonstrated that 20 patients (9 males, 11 females; mean age 62.5 ± 15.8 years) with 50 ICCs (mean size 1.8 ± 1.3 cm) were treated with percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) or microwave ablation (MWA) between 2006 and 2015. Thirty-eight of the treated ICCs (76%) were metastases that developed after surgical resection of the primary tumor. Patient demographics, procedure technical parameters, and clinical outcomes were reviewed. A Cox proportional hazards model was used to examine the risk of LTP by ablation modality. Survival analyses were performed using the Kaplan–Meier method. Results Mean imaging follow-up time was 41.5 ± 42.7 months. Forty-four (88%) ICCs were treated with RFA, and 6 (12%) with MWA. Eleven (22%) cases of LTP developed in 5 (25%) patients. The median time to LTP among these 11 tumors was 7.1 months (range, 2.3–22.9 months). Risk of LTP was not significantly different for ICCs treated with MWA compared to RFA (HR 2.72; 95% CI 0.58–12.84; p = 03.21). Median disease-free survival was 8.2 months (1.1–70.4 months), and median overall survival was 23.6 months (7.4–122.5 months). No major complication occurred. Conclusions Percutaneous thermal ablation is a safe and effective treatment for patients with ICCs and may be particularly valuable in unresectable patients, or those who have already undergone hepatic surgery. Tumor size and ablation modality were not associated with LTP, whereas primary tumors and superficially located tumors were more likely to subsequently recur.

  • How to define pathologic pelvic floor descent in MR defecography during
    • Authors: Khoschy Schawkat; Henriette Heinrich; Helen L. Parker; Borna K. Barth; Rishi P. Mathew; Dominik Weishaupt; Mark Fox; Caecilia S. Reiner
      Abstract: Objectives To assess the extents of pelvic floor descent both during the maximal straining phase and the defecation phase in healthy volunteers and in patients with pelvic floor disorders, studied with MR defecography (MRD), and to define specific threshold values for pelvic floor descent during the defecation phase. Material and methods Twenty-two patients (mean age 51 ± 19.4) with obstructed defecation and 20 healthy volunteers (mean age 33.4 ± 11.5) underwent 3.0T MRD in supine position using midsagittal T2-weighted images. Two radiologists performed measurements in reference to PCL-lines in straining and during defecation. In order to identify cutoff values of pelvic floor measurements for diagnosis of pathologic pelvic floor descent [anterior, middle, and posterior compartments (AC, MC, PC)], receiver-operating characteristic (ROC) curves were plotted. Results Pelvic floor descent of all three compartments was significantly larger during defecation than at straining in patients and healthy volunteers (p < 0.002). When grading pelvic floor descent in the straining phase, only two healthy volunteers showed moderate PC descent (10%), which is considered pathologic. However, when applying the grading system during defecation, PC descent was overestimated with 50% of the healthy volunteers (10 of 20) showing moderate PC descent. The AUC for PC measurements during defecation was 0.77 (p = 0.003) and suggests a cutoff value of 45 mm below the PCL to identify patients with pathologic PC descent. With the adapted cutoff, only 15% of healthy volunteers show pathologic PC descent during defecation. Conclusion MRD measurements during straining and defecation can be used to differentiate patients with pelvic floor dysfunction from healthy volunteers. However, different cutoff values should be used during straining and during defecation to define normal or pathologic PC descent.
