Familial pulmonary fibrosis is associated with loss-of-function mutations in telomerase reverse transcriptase ( TERT ) and short telomeres. Interstitial lung diseases have become the leading indication for lung transplantation in the USA, and recent data indicate that pathogenic mutations in telomerase may cause unfavourable outcomes following lung transplantation. Although a rare occurrence, solid organ transplant recipients who develop acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) have very poor surv...

Systemic diseases have many different presentations, including imaging findings in the bowel. Recognizing the imaging findings in these diseases is important in making the correct diagnosis. Although certain imaging features overlap, knowledge of specific findings along with the clinical presentation aid in narrowing the differential or in making an imaging diagnosis. The pictorial review will focus on the gastrointestinal manifestations of systemic diseases, including amyloidosis, angiotensin c...

Prompt diagnosis of aortoenteric fistulas is imperative for patient survival. The clinical signs of aortoenteric fistula include hematemesis, melena, sepsis, and abdominal pain, but the condition also may be clinically occult. Because clinical signs may not be present or may not be sufficiently specific, imaging is most often necessary to achieve an accurate diagnosis. Although no single imaging modality demonstrates the condition with sufficient sensitivity and specificity, computed tomography ...

Objectives The American College of Surgeons Oncology Group trial Z0060 is a prospective multi-institutional trial with a primary objective to evaluate whether positron emission tomography (PET) with F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) detects evidence of metastastic disease that precludes esophagectomy in patients with esophageal cancer who are surgical candidates after routine staging. Methods Patients with resectable, biopsy-proven carcinoma were enrolled after computed tomography of chest and abdom...
