Dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) is an imaging technique widely used in traumatic settings to diagnose bone marrow oedema (BME). This paper describes the role of DECT in diagnosing BME in non-traumatic settings by evaluating its reliability in analyzing some of the most common painful syndromes. In particular, with an illustrative approach, the paper describes the possible use of DECT for the evaluation of osteochondral lesions of the knee and of the ankle, avascular necrosis of the hip, n...

PURPOSE To evaluate the accuracy of computed tomography colonography (CTC) in differentiating chronic diverticular disease from colorectal cancer (CRC), using morphological and textural parameters. MATERIALS AND METHODS We included 95 consecutive patients with histologically proven chronic diverticular disease (n = 53) or CRC (n = 42) who underwent CTC. One radiologist, unaware of histological findings, evaluated CTC studies for the presence of potential discriminators including: maximum thickne...

Background Revisions of hip prostheses are increasing, and conventional radiography (CR) is a primary tool for managing -complications. However, dual-energy CT (DECT) with virtual monoenergetic imaging is capable of reducing periprosthetic metal artifacts compared with standard CT. Purpose To compare the diagnostic performance of DECT and CR in detecting hip prosthesis loosening, using surgery as a reference for diagnosis. Materials and Methods This retrospective single-center study conducted be...

To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of venous-phase dual-energy computed tomography (VP-DECT) in the identification of PE compared with standard CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA). This prospective IRB-approved study included 61 consecutive oncology patients (35 females, 26 males, mean age 66.91 years) examined by CTPA and VP-DECT. DECT data were post-processed on a SyngoVia workstation to obtain monoenergetic images (MEI+). The diagnosis of PE was based on the presence of any vascular perfusion de...

OBJECTIVES To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of DECT in the identification of BME of the ankle in non-traumatic patients. METHODS This prospective institutional review board approved study included 40 consecutive patients (21 males and 19 females, mean age 56.8 years, SD = 11.37) that were examined using DECT and MRI in the period between April 2019 and January 2020. Two radiologists (7 and 16 years of experience) evaluated the presence of BME on DECT mages. Diagnostic accuracy values for diag...

Abstract Schistosomiasis is a neglected disease caused by trematode worms, affecting multiple target organs (predominantly the liver and urinary system) and presenting in wide spectrum including both acute and chronic forms; potential risks include liver fibrosis, portal hypertension, urinary tract obstruction, hydronephrosis, bladder cancer and reproductive tract disease. Diagnosis is mainly based on the evidence of infestation by parasitological, serological and molecular methods in body fluid...

Abstract Objective To assess fractional anisotropy (FA) of sciatic nerve roots within the pelvis by using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) in patients suffering from sciatica with inconclusive lumbar MRI. Methods This IRB-approved prospective study included 32 consecutive subjects (11 males and 21 females; mean age 32.2 years) between September 2019 and February 2020. All patients underwent DTI (TR/TE 5800/97 ms; b = 1000; slice thickness 3,5 mm; directions = 20) on a 1.5 T scanner (Siemens Aera)....

To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) in identifying bone marrow edema (BME) around the hip joint in non-traumatic patients. This prospective IRB-approved study was conducted between January 2019 and October 2019 and included 59 consecutive patients (18 males, 41 females; mean age 61.5 years, range 32–82) who were assessed by DECT and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) within a 5-day period. Diagnostic accuracy values for diagnosing BME on a per-patient and ...

Background To evaluate the anatomic integrity of rotator cuff repair performed by medialized single row and augmented by a porcine dermal patch, in comparison with a nonaugmented group. Methods We conducted a single-center, prospective, double-blinded, randomized controlled trial. The sample size was predefined, and patients were divided into a study group and a control group, assessed preoperatively and at 1, 3, 6, 12, and 24 months. The EuroQol–visual analog scale; Constant-Murley questionnair...
