BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Intracerebral hemorrhage represents a potentially severe complication of revascularization of acute ischemic stroke. The aim of our study was to assess the capability of iodine extravasation quantification on dual-energy CT performed immediately after mechanical thrombectomy to predict hemorrhagic complications. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Because this was a retrospective study, the need for informed consent was waived. Eighty-five consecutive patients who underwent brain dual...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: In patients with hemorrhagic contusions, hematoma volumes are overestimated on follow-up standard 120-kV images obtained after contrast-enhanced whole-body CT. We aimed to retrospectively determine hemorrhagic progression of contusion rates on 120-kV and 190-keV images derived from dual-energy CT and the magnitude of hematoma volume overestimation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed admission and follow-up CT studies in 40 patients with hemorrhagic contusi...

Chronic suppurative otitis media, with or without cholesteatoma, may lead to erosion of the ossicles and discontinuity of the ossicular chain. In incomplete ossicular discontinuity (IOD), partial erosion of the ossicles occurs, but some sound transmission is noted throughout the ossicular chain. High-frequency conductive hearing loss (HfCHL) has been considered a hallmark of incomplete ossicular discontinuity. This study aims to evaluate the use of HfCHL as a preoperative predictor of IOD in pat...

: Cholesteatoma is a collection of keratinous debris and stratified squamous epithelium. It is trapped in the middle ear and can lead to bony erosion. The disease is treated surgically often followed by a second-look procedure to check for residual tissue or recurrence. Cholesteatoma has specific signal-intensity characteristics on magnetic resonance imaging with very high signal intensity on diffusion weighted imaging (DWI). Various DWI techniques exist: Echo-planar imaging (EPI)-based and non-...

Abstract The European Academy of Otology and Neurotology (EAONO) has previously published a consensus document on the definitions and classification of cholesteatoma. It was based on the Delphi consensus methodology involving the broad EAONO membership. At the same time, the Japanese Otological Society (JOS) had been working independently on the "Classification and Staging of Cholesteatoma." EAONO and JOS then decided to collaborate and produce a joint consensus document. The EAONO/JOS joint con...

Abstract Objective To evaluate the accuracy and sensitivity of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging with ADC value combined with MDCT in evaluating recurrent cholesteatoma. Patients Thirty patients (20 females and 10 males), their age ranged from 10 to 40years, had undergone a tympanomastoid surgery for a cholesteatoma of the middle ear underwent MDCT and MR DWI examination before second- or third-look surgery from May 2015 to October 2016. Results CT showed partial opacification of the...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The high diagnostic value of DWI for cholesteatoma diagnostics is undisputed. This study compares the diagnostic value of readout-segmented echo-planar DWI and single-shot TSE DWI for cholesteatoma diagnostics. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty patients with newly suspected cholesteatoma were examined with a dedicated protocol, including readout-segmented echo-planar DWI and single-shot TSE DWI at 1.5T. Acquisition parameters of both diffusion-weighted sequences were as follows...

Technological advancement in computed tomography (CT) and MRI has improved cholesteatoma detection rates considerably in the past decade. Accurately predicting disease location and extension is essential for staging, planning, and preoperative counseling, in particular in the newer approach of endoscopic ear surgery. Improved sensitivity and specificity of these radiological methods may allow the surgeon to confidently monitor patients, therefore avoiding unnecessary surgery. This article outlin...

OBJECTIVES We aimed to compare dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) virtual monochromatic imaging (VMI) and iodine density imaging (IDI) of oral cancers in terms of visual scoring and tumour volume estimation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Nine patients diagnosed with oral cancer who underwent DECT VMI and IDI were enrolled. One radiation oncologist, one head and neck surgeon and nine oral surgeons evaluated image clarity and quality in each patient in terms of metal artefacts due to dental prosthesis...

Dual energy CT (DECT)with image acquisition at two different photon X-ray levels allows the characterization of a specific tissue or material/elements, the extrapolation of virtual unenhanced and monoenergetic images, and the quantification of iodine uptake; such special capabilities make the DECT the perfect technique to support oncological imaging for tumor detection and characterization and treatment monitoring, while concurrently reducing the dose of radiation and iodine and improving the me...

Background and Aim: Atticoantral, alias unsafe type of CSOM affects the posterosuperior part of the middle ear cleft and is frequently coupled with complications and bony erosions. This study aimed to correlate the high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) temporal bone and intraoperative findings in the patients with the unsafe type of CSOM. Methods: This prospective study included 50 patients (28 males: 22 females; mean age 24 ± 14 years) who presented with clinically suspected unsafe CSOM. A...
