Lower accuracies for MRI compared with MRE to diagnose multicentric (p = .01) and multifocal lesions (p = .004) were noted. The interobserver agreement for MRE was good for both multifocality (κ = 0.80) and multicentricity (κ = 0.61) AbstractText: Magnetic resonance enterography has better accuracy for diagnosing multifocal and multicentric bowel endometriosis than conventional MRI Keyword: Colorectal endometriosis. Keyword: Deep infiltrating endometriosis.

BACKGROUND: Small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) are the most common form of neoplasm in the small bowel. Radiological identification of primary tumors (PT), which may be multiple, is difficult, and therefore palpation of the entire small bowel is routinely performed during laparotomy. The aim was to determine detection rates of PT and peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) with (68)Ga-DOTATOC/TATE-PET/CT in comparison with i.v. contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CE-CT) and thus to clarify whether modern functional imaging can mitigate the need for palpation of bowel during surgery enabling oncologically adequate laparoscopic resection. METHODS: A total of 28 patients with SI-NET who preoperatively underwent both (68)Ga-DOTATOC/TATE-PET/CT and CE-CT were included. The detection rates of PT and PC for PET/CT and CE-CT were compared to the findings in the surgical and histopathological reports. Appropriate statistical tests were used, and significance was set to p < 0.05. RESULTS: Out of 82 PT, 43 PT were not detected by any imaging modality. More PT lesions were detected with PET/CT (n = 39 [47.5%]) than with CE-CT (n = 10 [12.2%], p < 0.001). Also, PET/CT identified significantly more PC lesions than CE-CT (78 and 38%, p = 0.004, respectively). CONCLUSION: PET/CT detected more PT and PC lesions than CE-CT. Some PTs and PC lesions were only detected by one of the modalities, and CT performed in conjunction with PET/CT should therefore be performed as a fully diagnostic CE-CT for optimal results. Palpation of the small bowel remains crucial during surgery in these patients because several PTs escaped detection by both PET/CT and CE-CT.

Volunteers with small abdominal girth showed clear images of cerebrospinal fluid in the nerve root cuff at the intervertebral foramen in the three-dimensional magnetic resonance imaging reconstruction of lumbosacral cerebrospinal fluid, while the images were vague in volunteers with large abdominal girth. Clearer images implied larger lumbosacral cerebrospinal fluid volume, while vaguer images, smaller lumbosacral cerebrospinal fluid volume.Multiple ...

Over the past few years, considerable progress has been made in imaging of the rectum. Specifically, new magnetic resonance techniques and capabilities provide impressive high-resolution assessment of the rectal wall and enable evaluation and characterization of the perirectal tissues.

The diagnosis of gallstone ileus relies on a radiological approach, and herein we discuss the benefits and drawbacks of the use of different modalities of radiological imaging: plain abdominal films, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound scanning. Based on our case experience and review of the literature, the authors conclude that although an effective first-line tool, plain abdominal ...

Fifteen observers (five interns and residents, five chest radiologists, and five abdominal radiologists) independently evaluated tomosynthesis images of 100 patients for the presence of pulmonary nodules in a blinded and randomized manner, first without CAD, then with the inclusion of CAD marks. Multidetector CT images served as the reference standard.

Two independent abdominal radiologists reviewed all scans; imaging features and a modified Hinchey classification were scored. Descriptive statistics compared the relationships between imaging findings, clinical parameters obtained from medical record review, and modified Hinchey classification with management outcomes.CT findings associated with surgical management include the presence of a pericolonic fluid collection (36.8% vs. 8.2%, P = 0.0001), colonic fistula (13.2 ...
