PURPOSE: To investigate the influence of microcystic, elongated and fragmented (MELF) pattern invasion on preoperative evaluation of lymph node (LN) metastasis and myometrial invasion in patients with low-grade endometrial carcinoma. METHODS: The study included 192 consecutive patients with low-grade endometrial carcinoma who underwent preoperative computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), followed by surgery. One hundred sixty one of 192 patients underwent LN dissection and...

AIM To elucidate correlation between signal intensity on diffusion-weighted images (SI-DWI) and clinical backgrounds for uterine adenomyosis and to compare SI-DWI of adenomyosis and malignant uterine tumors. METHODS This study examined 46 adenomyosis patients diagnosed using magnetic resonance imaging and 25 patients with surgically confirmed malignant uterine myometrial tumor. First, adenomyosis cases were classified visually into high-intensity and low-intensity groups based on the SI-DWI comp...

PURPOSE To evaluate the clinical feasibility of a newly developed mobile PET system with MR-compatibility (flexible PET; fxPET), compared with conventional PET (cPET)/CT for brain imaging. METHODS Twenty-one patients underwent cPET/CT with subsequent fxPET/MRI using 18F-FDG. As qualitative evaluation, we visually rated image quality of MR and PET images using a four-point scoring system. We evaluated overall image quality for MR, while we evaluated overall image quality, sharpness and lesion con...

OBJECTIVE Tumor-induced osteomalacia (TIO) is caused by typically small tumors that secrete fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23). As tumor resection is the only effective treatment for TIO, it is important to detect the culprit tumor. We aimed to assess the utility of 68Gallium-DOTA-D-Phe(1)-Tyr(3)-octreotide (68Ga-DOTATOC) PET/CT in TIO and the correlation between biochemical parameters and the PET/CT results. METHODS Thirty-five patients with clinically suspected TIO who had undergone 68Ga-DOTA...

OBJECTIVE. Flexible PET (fxPET) was designed to fit existing MRI systems. The newly modified nonlocal means (NLM) algorithm is combined with the 3D dynamic row-action maximum likelihood algorithm (DRAMA). We investigated qualitative and quantitative acceptability of fxPET images reconstructed by modified NLM compared with whole-body (WB) PET/CT images and conventional 3D DRAMA reconstruction alone. MATERIALS AND METHODS. Fifty-nine patients with known or suspected malignancies underwent WB PET/C...

PURPOSE We aimed to evaluate mid- to long-term results of endovascular treatment for portal vein thrombosis (PVT) after living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT). METHODS Thirty cases (14 males, 16 females; age range, 0.67-65 years) who underwent endovascular treatment including thrombolysis, angioplasty, stent placement, and/or collateral embolization for PVT after LDLT from 2001 to 2017 were retrospectively reviewed. Clinical and procedural data were collected and analyzed regarding the patenc...
