A combination of albumin-bilirubin (ALBI) grading and the Prognostic Nutritional Index (PNI) was identified recently as a highly predictive tool for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) undergoing tumor ablation. The present study evaluated this combination in patients undergoing transarterial chemoembolization (TACE). Between 2010 and 2020, 280 treatment-naive patients were retrospectively identified. The influence of ALBI grade, PNI and the novel ALBI-PNI on the median overall survival...

BACKGROUND There is strong evidence that portal vein tumor thrombosis (PVTT) is associated with poor survival in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, data regarding the clinical significance of hepatic vein tumor thrombosis (HVTT) is rare, particularly in Western patients. OBJECTIVE To determine the HVTT prevalence in a Western patient population and its impact on survival. METHODS We included 1310 patients with HCC treated in our tertiary referral center between January 2005 a...

OBJECTIVES: We investigated the attitudes of radiologists, information technology (IT) specialists, and industry representatives on artificial intelligence (AI) and its future impact on radiological work. MATERIALS AND METHODS: During a national meeting for AI, eHealth, and IT infrastructure in 2019, we conducted a survey to obtain participants' attitudes. A total of 123 participants completed 28 items exploring AI usage in medicine. The Kruskal-Wallis test was used to identify differences betwe...

Several scoring systems have been devised to objectively predict survival for patients with intrahepatic cholangiocellular carcinoma (ICC) and support treatment stratification, but they have failed external validation. The aim of the present study was to improve prognostication using an artificial intelligence-based approach. We retrospectively identified 417 patients with ICC who were referred to our tertiary care center between 1997 and 2018. Of these, 293 met the inclusion criteria. Establish...

Background Portal vein tumor thrombosis (PVTT) is a frequent complication of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), which leads to classification as advanced stage disease (regardless of the degree of PVTT) according to the Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer Classification. For such patients, systemic therapy is the standard of care. However, in clinical reality, many patients with PVTT undergo different treatments, such as resection, transarterial chemoembolization (TACE), selective internal radiation ther...

OBJECTIVE: During the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of patients presenting in hospitals because of emergency conditions decreased. Radiology is thus confronted with the effects of the pandemic. The aim of this study was to use natural language processing (NLP) to automatically analyze the number and distribution of fractures during the pandemic and in the 5 years before the pandemic. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We used a pre-trained commercially available NLP engine to automatically categorize 5397 r...

Abstract Background To assess the prognostic implications of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) in patients with clinical suspicion of myocardial infarction with non-obstructed coronary arteries (MINOCA). Methods A total of 145 patients (58 ± 15 years, 97 men) were retrospectively enrolled in this single-center, longitudinal observational study. All patients underwent CMR including cine, edema-sensitive, and late gadolinium enhancement acquisitions, within a median of 3 days after cardiac ...
