  • Role of rapid kV-switching dual-energy CT in assessment of post-surgical
           local recurrence of pancreatic adenocarcinoma
    • Authors: Anushri Parakh; Manuel Patino; Daniela Muenzel; Avinash Kambadakone; Dushyant V. Sahani
      Abstract: Purpose The purpose of this study is to evaluate the performance of material-specific iodine (MS-I) images generated by rapid kV-switching single-source dual-energy computed tomography (rsDECT) for distinguishing post-operative changes from local tumor recurrence in patients on follow-up for pancreatic adenocarcinoma after surgical resection. Methods In this IRB-approved HIPPA-compliant study, retrospective review of 51 patients who underwent surgical resection of pancreatic adenocarcinoma was conducted and were followed up using contrast-enhanced rsDECT (Discovery CT 750HD, GE Healthcare, Milwaukee, WI). Independent qualitative assessment for presence of local tumor recurrence was performed by two radiologists who evaluated 65 keV (single-energy CT-equivalent interpretation) and 65 keV with MS-I (rsDECT interpretation) in separate sessions. Quantitative analysis of Hounsfield unit (HU, on 65 keV) and normalized iodine concentration (NIC on MS-I images; iodine concentration ratio in post-operative tissue to aorta) was measured. Follow-up imaging, temporal change of CEA and CA 19-9 or biopsy served as reference standard for presence and absence of local recurrence. Sensitivity and specificity of readers and quantitative parameters was calculated and receiver operating characteristic curves and Fisher’s exact test were generated. A p value < 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results A total of 51 patients (27 females, 24 males) with mean age of 64 years built the final cohort. Local recurrence was absent in 23 (Group A) and present in 28 (Group B) patients. The follow-up imaging was performed within 7 months of rsDECT. For both readers, the addition of MS-I increased the specificity for tissue characterization and improved reader confidence as compared to 65 keV (specificity: 80% and 56%, respectively) images alone. Quantitative analysis revealed a significantly lower NIC (0.28 vs. 0.35; p < 0.05) for non-recurrent tissue. However, HU was not significantly different for non-recurrent and recurrent tissue (0.63 vs. 0.70; p > 0.05). Conclusion In inherently complex cases of post-operative pancreatic adenocarcinoma, MS-I images from rsDECT can be a useful adjunct to conventional scans in characterizing loco-regional soft tissue.

           survey of the Society of Abdominal Radiology
    • Authors: Benjamin Spilseth; Daniel J. Margolis; Sangeet Ghai; Nayana U. Patel; Andrew B. Rosenkrantz
      Abstract: Purpose To evaluate radiologist preferences regarding specific content that warrants inclusion in prostate MRI reports. Methods Sixty-one members of the Society of Abdominal Radiology responded to a 74-item survey regarding specific content warranted in prostate MRI reports, conducted in August 2016. Results General items deemed essential report content by ≥ 50% of respondents were prostate volume (80%), extent of prostate hemorrhage (74%), TURP defects (69%), coil type (64%), BPH (61%), contrast dose (61%), contrast agent (59%), medications administered (59%), and magnet strength (54%). Details regarding lesion description deemed essential by ≥ 50% were overall PI-RADS category (88%), DCE (±) (82%), subjective degree of diffusion restriction (72%), T2WI intensity (72%), T2WI margins (65%), T2WI shape (52%), DWI 1-5 score (50%), and T2WI 1-5 score (50%). Details deemed essential to include in the report Impression by ≥ 50% of respondents were lymphadenopathy and metastases (100%), EPE (98%), SVI (98%), neurovascular bundle involvement (93%), index lesion location (93%), PI-RADS category of index lesion (82%), number of suspicious lesions (78%), significance of index lesion PI-RADS category (53%), and PI-RADS category of non-index lesions (52%). Preferred methods for lesion localization were slice/image number (68%), 3-part craniocaudal level (68%), zonal location (65%), anterior vs. posterior location (57%), and medial vs. lateral position (56%). Least preferred methods for localization were numeric sector from the PI-RADS sector map (8%), annotated screen capture (10%), and graphical schematic of PI-RADS sector map (11%). Conclusion Radiologists generally deemed a high level of detail warranted in prostate MRI reports. The PI-RADS v2 sector map was disliked for lesion localization.

    • Authors: Stacy D. O’Connor; Stuart G. Silverman; Laila R. Cochon; Ramin K. Khorasani
      Abstract: Purpose To describe and quantify the rate of detection of renal cancer on unenhanced CT. Methods This retrospective, HIPAA-compliant study was approved by the Institutional Review Board. Electronic health records for all patients who underwent unenhanced abdominal CT at our institution between 2000 and 2005 were reviewed to identify patients subsequently diagnosed with renal cancer during a follow-up period of up to 12 years. Images were reviewed to determine if the cancer was visible at index (first) unenhanced CT and their findings recorded. Original radiology reports were reviewed to determine whether the renal cancer was reported; Fisher’s Exact Test compared imaging features of detected and missed cancers. Clinical outcomes including time until diagnosis and stage at diagnosis were used to assess the potential impact of missed cancers. Results Of 15,695 patients, 82 (0.52%) were diagnosed with renal cancer. Of these, 43/82 (52%) cancers were retrospectively detectable on index unenhanced CT. Among retrospectively detectable cancers, 63% (27/43) were originally detected and reported on index CT and 37% (16/43) were missed. Size was the only feature associated with detection; 83% (20/24) of cancers > 3.0 cm were detected versus 37% (7/19) of cancers ≤ 3.0 cm (p = 0.0036). Although none of the 16 missed renal cancers developed metastases between index CT and time of diagnosis (median 33.5 months), 4 (25%) progressed in stage. Conclusions Renal cancer was rare in patients undergoing unenhanced abdominal CT. Over one-third of potentially detectable cancers were missed prospectively. However, missed cancers did not metastasize and infrequently progressed in stage before being diagnosed.

  • Pancreatic adenocarcinoma: cross-sectional imaging techniques
    • Authors: Naveen M. Kulkarni; David M. Hough; Parag P. Tolat; Erik V. Soloff; Avinash R. Kambadakone
      Abstract: Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is a common malignancy that has a poor prognosis. Imaging is vital in its detection, staging, and management. Although a variety of imaging techniques are available, MDCT is the preferred imaging modality for staging and assessing the resectability of pancreatic adenocarcinoma. MR also has an important adjunct role, and may be used in addition to CT or as a problem-solving tool. A dedicated pancreatic protocol should be acquired as a biphasic technique optimized for the detection of pancreatic adenocarcinoma and to allow accurate local and distant disease staging. Emerging techniques like dual-energy CT and texture analysis of CT and MR images have a great potential in improving lesion detection, characterization, and treatment monitoring.

  • Mapping of hepatic vasculature in potential living liver donors:
           comparison of gadoxetic acid-enhanced MR imaging using CAIPIRINHA
           technique with CT angiography
    • Authors: Kartik Jhaveri; Lijun Guo; Luís Guimarães; Ravi Menezes; Ian McGilvray; Mark Cattral; David Grant
      Abstract: Purpose To retrospectively evaluate gadoxetic acid-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) using controlled aliasing in parallel imaging results in higher acceleration (CAIPIRINHA) technique for mapping hepatic vascular anatomy in potential living liver donors, with CT angiography (CTA) as reference standard. Methods 82 potential living liver donors who underwent MRA and CTA were enrolled in this HIPAA-compliant IRB-approved study. MRA and CTA images were evaluated by two reviewers in consensus with respect to (1) image quality scores for depiction of the hepatic vessels and (2) accuracy of MRA for determining the hepatic vascular variants with CTA as reference standard. The image quality scores were compared using Fisher’s exact test between MRA and CTA. Results The accuracy for determining the hepatic arterial, portal, and hepatic venous variants and segment IV arterial origin was 73, 90, 79, and 55%, respectively, compared to CTA. However, subjective image quality for depiction of hepatic arteries in MRA was significantly lower than CTA (p < 0.001). The portal and hepatic venous image quality was almost equal in both modalities (p = 0.059) except left hepatic vein being depicted better on CT images (p = 0.023). Conclusion Gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRA using CAIPIRINHA technique is feasible for mapping hepatic vasculature in potential living liver donors, with moderate accuracy for arterial variants and good to excellent results for hepatic and portal vein variants, compared with CTA. However, the specific delineation of segment IV arterial origin was possible in just over half of the liver donors with MRA.

  • Shear wave liver elastography
    • Authors: Richard G. Barr
      Abstract: Chronic liver disease is a substantial world-wide problem. Its major consequence is increasing deposition of fibrous tissue within the liver leading to the development of cirrhosis with its consequences of portal hypertension, hepatic insufficiency, and hepatocellular carcinoma. The stage of liver fibrosis is important to determine prognosis, surveillance, prioritize for treatment, and potential for reversibility. The process of fibrosis is dynamic and regression of fibrosis is possible with treatment of the underlying conditions. Previously, the only method of staging the degree of fibrosis was liver biopsy. The recent development of ultrasound elastography techniques allows a non-invasive method of estimating the degree of liver fibrosis. Transient elastography (TE) is a non-imaging elastographic technique, while point shear wave (p-SWE) and 2D-SWE combine imaging with elastography. The evidence at this time suggests that p-SWE is as accurate as but more reliable than TE, while 2D-SWE is more accurate than TE. This review discusses the background of chronic liver disease, the types of ultrasound elastography, how to perform an examination, and how to interpret the results.

    • Authors: Francisco J. Maldonado; Shannon P. Sheedy; Veena R. Iyer; Stephanie L. Hansel; David H. Bruining; Cynthia H. McCollough; William S. Harmsen; John M. Barlow; Joel G. Fletcher
      Abstract: Purpose To identify reproducible CT imaging features of small bowel gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) that are associated with biologic aggressiveness. Methods Patients with histologically proven small bowel GISTs and CT enterography or abdominopelvic CT were included. Biologic aggressiveness was established based on initial histologic grading (very low risk to malignant), with “malignant” assigned if recurrence or metastases developed subsequently. CT exams were independently evaluated by three gastrointestinal radiologists for tumor size, growth pattern, enhancement, tumor borders, necrosis, calcification, ulceration, multiplicity, internal air or enteric contrast, nodal metastasis, liver metastasis, peritoneal metastasis, ascites, and draining vein size. Inter-observer variability and imaging features associated with high-grade and malignant small bowel GISTs were determined. Results Of 78 patients with small bowel GISTs, 10/78 (13%) were high grade and 18/78 (23%) were malignant. There was moderate to substantial inter-observer agreement (Kappa > 0.4) for all findings except tumor border, ulceration, and nodal metastases. Tumor size, irregular or invasive tumor border, necrosis, liver metastasis, ascites, and iso-enhancement were associated with high-grade/malignant small bowel GISTs (p < 0.04). Internal air or enteric contrast and peritoneal metastases additionally predicted malignant behavior (p < 0.03). When imaging features predicting malignant small bowel GISTs were absent and size was ≤ 3 cm, 0% (0/16), 5% (1/19), and 5% (1/17) of patients had high grade, and 0% (0/16, 0/19, and 0/17) had malignant tumors for the three readers, respectively. Conclusion Multiple, reproducibly identified, small bowel GIST imaging features suggest biologic aggressiveness. The absence of these imaging features may identify small tumors that can be followed in asymptomatic or high-risk patients.

  • Contrast-enhanced ultrasonography for assessment of tubular
           atrophy/interstitial fibrosis in immunoglobulin A nephropathy: a
           preliminary clinical study
    • Authors: Wenqi Yang; Shan Mou; Yao Xu; Jing Du; Li Xu; Fenghua Li; Hongli Li
      Abstract: Purpose To investigate the potential of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) for evaluating the severity of tubular atrophy/interstitial fibrosis (TA/IF) in immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN) patients. Materials and methods A total of 80 patients with IgAN and 33 healthy adults were investigated. Patients were divided into three groups according to the TA/IF (T) grade of the Oxford classification: T0 (n = 28), T1 (n = 35), and T2 (n = 17). Patients and control subjects underwent conventional ultrasound (US) and CEUS. Time-intensity curves of CEUS were drawn for regions of interest located in the renal cortex and medulla using QLab software. Conventional US and CEUS quantitative parameters were analyzed. One-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), binary logistic regression, and receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves were used. Results There were no significant differences in renal size, cortical thickness, and medullary perfusion parameters (P > 0.05), whereas the differences in peak intensity (PI), area under the time-intensity curve (AUC) and wash-in slope (WIS) of cortical perfusion parameters between the control subjects and patients were significant (P < 0.05). PI was significantly lower with the increasing degree of T (P < 0.05). PI was associated independently with the degree of T in IgAN patients (P < 0.05). ROC analysis revealed that using the optimal cutoff values of 15.38 dB for diagnosis of T0-T1 (sensitivity 83.30% and specificity 63.00%) and 14.69 dB for diagnosis of T2 (sensitivity 100.00% and specificity 66.70%), the corresponding areas under the ROC curve were found to be 0.782 and 0.952, respectively. Conclusions CEUS can potentially be used as a noninvasive imaging marker to evaluate the severity of TA/IF in IgAN patients.

    • Authors: Xueqin Xu; Suzanne L. Palmer; Xiaozhu Lin; Weixia Li; Kemin Chen; Fuhua Yan; Xiao Li
      Abstract: Purpose To investigate the value of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) for assessing histopathologic changes observed in chronic kidney disease (CKD). Methods Fifty-two patients with CKD underwent DWI before renal biopsy. The renal apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values and histopathologic changes were analyzed. The pathologic changes were scored using a semi-quantitative method (no lesion as 0, mild lesion as 1, moderate lesion as 2, and severe lesion as 3). The relationships between renal histopathologic scores, types, classification, and right renal ADCs were analyzed using ANOVA and Pearson’s or Spearman’s correlation tests. Results Negative correlations were found between the right renal ADCs and scores of tubulointerstitial lesions (r = − 0.354, P = 0.012), the severity of tubular atrophy (r = − 0.439, P = 0.002), and the severity of interstitial fibrosis (r = − 0.272, P = 0.049). There were no correlations between the ADCs and scores of glomeruli and peritubular vessel lesions (P > 0.05). There were significant differences among groups based on pathology types (P = 0.009). There was no significant relationship between renal ADCs and the pathologic classification (P > 0.05). Conclusions DWI may be helpful to detect tubulointerstitial injury, including tubular atrophy and interstitial fibrosis. DWI may have the potential to serve as an effective auxiliary method to help nephrologists to evaluate patients with CKD.

           initial experience
    • Authors: Xuefeng Luo; Huaiyuan Ma; Jiaze Yu; Ying Zhao; Xiaoze Wang; Li Yang
      Abstract: Purpose Balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration (BRTO) is a widely-accepted treatment for gastric varices (GVs). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of BRTO with lauromacrogol foam sclerotherapy. Materials and methods Between May 2014 and June 2015, 32 patients were treated with lauromacrogol foam. Lauromacrogol foam was made using a combination of agents, with a 2:1:1 ratio of room air: lauromacrogol: contrast media. Patients were followed up using contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) and endoscopy. Results Technical success was achieved in 31 of 32 patients (96.9%). Portal vein thrombosis occurred in two patients and resolved spontaneously. No other major complications were observed. The overall mean dose of lauromacrogol used was 12.4 mL (range, 8–20 mL). Complete obliteration of GVs was confirmed in all 31 patients (100%) on follow-up CT. Seven of the 31 patients (22.6%) experienced worsening of esophageal varices. Rupture of esophageal varices occurred in three patients and was treated successfully with band ligation. Five patients (16.1%) experienced worsening of ascites and responded well to diuretic therapy. Conclusion BRTO utilizing lauromacrogol foam appears to be a safe and useful treatment option in patients with GVs in the short term.

      Abstract: Purpose To assess the value of Hepatobiliary phase MRI (HPB-MRI) to differentiate FNH and HCA, and evaluate its impact on diagnostic accuracy, diagnostic confidence, inter-observer variability, and patient clinical management. Methods Forty-nine patients referred for Gd-BOPTA-enhanced MRI were retrospectively included in this IRB-approved study, with a total of 119 lesions—90 FNH and 29 HCA. Two observers separately assessed in 2 distinct randomized reading sessions the performance of MRI with (HBP-MRI) or without (conventional MRI) the use of HBP images. Each lesion was ranked with a 5-point scale (from 1 Typical FNH to 5 Certainly not a FNH). Sensitivity, specificity, overall accuracy, and inter-observer agreement for the differentiation of FNH from HCA were calculated and compared between conventional and HBP-MRI. Results Both sensitivity (respective values of 38.9% and 97.8%), overall accuracy (respective values of 53.8% and 98.3%), and inter-observer agreement (respective values of Kappa 0.56 and 0.88) were significantly higher using HBP-MRI than with conventional MRI, with unchanged specificity (100%). The sensitivity of conventional MRI for the diagnosis of FNH was significantly lower in lesions ≤ 3 cm (20% vs. 88%). Overall, HBP could have changed lesion management in 59/119 cases (49.5%), including 53 FNH and 6 HCA with no impact in 60/119 lesions (50.5%) including all 35 lesions classified as scores 1 and 2 for the diagnosis of FNH. Conclusions The clinical impact of HBP-MRI is mostly important for smaller than 3-cm FNH, and more limited in larger FNH lesions as well as for HCA diagnosis for which conventional MRI is already accurate. The use of extracellular contrast agents upfront could limit the required use of linear HBP contrast agents for benign hepatocellular lesion characterization. On HBP, all FNH appeared hypointense compared to adjacent liver while close to 97% of HCA appeared hypointense.

  • Diffusion-weighted imaging in hemorrhagic abdominal and pelvic lesions:
           restricted diffusion can mimic malignancy
    • Authors: Chandana Lall; Vlad Bura; Thomas K. Lee; Priya Bhosale; Silvana C. Faria; Joon-Il Choi; Zhen Jane Wang
      Abstract: Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) is an increasingly utilized sequence in the assessment of abdominal and pelvic lesions. Benign lesions containing hemorrhagic products, with conglomerates of tightly packed blood cells or fibers, can have restricted water diffusion on DWI and apparent diffusion coefficient maps. Such lesions can have restricted diffusion erroneously attributed to malignancy. This review illustrates benign hemorrhagic lesions displaying restricted diffusion, with histopathologic correlation in relevant cases.

      Abstract: Advances in technology have enabled the delivery of high doses of radiation therapy for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) with low rates of toxicity. Although the role of radiation for pancreatic cancer continues to evolve, encouraging results with newer techniques indicate that radiation may benefit selected patient populations. Imaging has been central to the modern successes of radiation therapy for PDAC. Here, we review the role of diagnostic imaging, imaging-based planning, and image guidance in radiation oncology practice for PDAC.
