AIM: To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy achieved from a fat-water Dixon sequence alone compared to a combination of a silicone-specific magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequence and a water-specific MRI sequence in the assessment of breast implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this institutional review board (IRB)-approved study the integrity of breast implants was assessed retrospectively in 27 patients undergoing breast MRI at 3 T. A qualitative evaluation of (set 1) a silicon-selective water-saturated short tau inversion recovery (STIR) sequence in combination with a water-only Dixon dataset (total acquisition time 7 minutes 17 seconds), and of (set 2) fat-only and water-only Dixon datasets (4 minutes 8 seconds) was performed by two readers independently evaluating the following features: margin definition of the implant, water suppression homogeneity, image quality, presence of artefacts and their effects on the imaging interpretation, and diagnostic confidence...

Humoral primary immunodeficiency diseases (hPIDs) are a heterogeneous group of hereditary disorders resulting in abnormal susceptibility to infections of the sinopulmonary tract. Some of these conditions (e.g., common variable immunodeficiency disorders [CVID]) imply a number of non-infectious thoracic complications such as non-infectious airway disorders, diffuse lung parenchymal diseases, and neoplasms. Chest high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) is a key imaging tool to characterise and quantify the extent of underlying thoracic involvement, as well as to direct and monitor treatment...

AIMS: To assess the feasibility of undertaking microbubble-guided vacuum-assisted biopsy (VAB) of the sentinel lymph node (SLN) and determine its sensitivity in detecting metastases. Patient experience and the impact of VAB on subsequent axillary surgery were also evaluated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with a normal axillary ultrasound or benign core biopsy planned for surgical SLN biopsy were recruited. Part 1 of the study was used to establish the technique of ultrasound microbubble contrast to detect the SLN...

AIM: To evaluate the diagnostic performance of ultra-low-dose computed tomography (ULDCT) in comparison to standard coronary calcium score (CCS) acquisition for the evaluation of coronary artery calcification (CAC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Standard CCS acquisition and ULDCT were performed in patients referred for coronary CT angiography for the evaluation of coronary artery disease. CAC in ULDCT was graded subjectively using a four-point scale (from 0, no calcification, to 3, severe calcification) for the complete study and for each individual coronary segment...

AIM: To assess whether patellar and trochlea morphology and patellar alignment are associated with lateral patellar osteoarthrosis/chondrosis (OAC) in young adults. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images of 183 subjects (81 cases, 102 controls) aged 21-35 years of age were evaluated. Quantitative measurements of patella and trochlea morphology and patellar alignment were obtained. Axial and sagittal MRI images were reviewed to grade the severity of focal cartilage defects along the lateral facet of the patella...

AIM: To evaluate the correlation between the maximum standardised uptake value (SUVmax) from bone single-photon-emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) and other imaging parameters for medial compartment osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients (n=26; male:female=2:24; age, 55.3±5.8 years) underwent quantitative knee SPECT/CT using technetium-99m (Tc-99m) hydroxymethylene diphosphonate (HDP) before surgical operation for medial OA of the knee...

AIM: To define practical limitations of diagnostic image quality for recently introduced turbo high-pitch scan mode (THP) in third-generation dual-source computed tomography (CT). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two hundred and twenty-nine consecutive patients undergoing CT coronary angiography were included in this retrospective single-centre analysis. A contrast-enhanced volume dataset was acquired in THP. Image quality of coronary segments was classified as diagnostic or non-diagnostic by three blinded readers...

REVIEW
S E J Connor
There have been significant advances in the diversity and effectiveness of hearing technologies in recent years. Implanted auditory devices may be divided into those that stimulate the cochlear hair cells (bone conduction devices and middle ear implants), and those that stimulate the neural structures (cochlear implants and central auditory implants). Contemporary preoperative and postoperative imaging may be used to help individualise implant selection, optimise surgical technique and predict auditory outcome...

AIM: To assess the value of computed tomography (CT) in the diagnosis of symptomatic sacroiliac (SI) joint degeneration. MATERIALS AND METHODS: CT images from 123 patients with clinically diagnosed SI joint pain were compared to age- and gender-matched controls without chronic back pain or previous back surgery. Degeneration was graded assessing joint space narrowing, osteophytes, subchondral sclerosis, cysts, and vacuum phenomena. RESULTS: The mean total score for the patients was 9...

In 2016, it is estimated 180,890 men are newly diagnosed with prostate cancer and 3,306,760 men live with prostate cancer in the United States. The introduction of multiparametric (mp) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the prostate, standardised interpretation guidelines such as Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS version 2), and MRI-based targeted biopsy has improved detection of clinically significant prostate cancer. Accurate risk stratification (Gleason grade/score and tumour stage) using imaging and image-guided targeted biopsy has become critical for the management of patients with prostate cancer...

AIM: To evaluate interobserver variability in the assessment of Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) 3 mammographic lesions, and to determine if the initial evaluation of upgraded BI-RADS 3 lesions was appropriate. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective review of the mammography database (1/1/2004-12/31/2008) identified 1,188 screen-detected BI-RADS 3 lesions, 60 (5.1%) were upgraded to BI-RADS 4/5 during surveillance (cases). Cases were matched to 60 non-upgraded BI-RADS 3 lesions (controls) by lesion type, laterality, and year...

AIM: To evaluate the incidence of adverse events and associated factors after radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma within 30 days. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The early complications that occurred within 30 days after RFA at a single institution from January 2000 to July 2010 were reviewed in order to evaluate the morbidity, mortality, and risk factors associated with the complications. In total, 1,211 patients (845 men, 70.5%) with a mean age of 68 years (range, 27-88 years) underwent 1,843 RFA procedures...

REVIEW
A N Kurup, M R Callstrom
Interventional approaches to musculoskeletal tumours have significantly changed over the last several years, and new treatments continue to be developed. All ablative modalities are currently applied to the treatment of bone tumours, including radiofrequency, cryo-, microwave, and laser ablation devices. Indications for ablation of bone and soft-tissue tumours have expanded beyond palliation of painful bone metastases and eradication of osteoid osteomas to the local control of oligometastatic disease from a number of primary tumours and ablation of desmoid tumours...

AIM: To evaluate the accuracy of contemporary N-staging and provide radiological-pathological correlation in patients with lymph node metastases (LNMs) that were radiologically staged N0. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred and twelve patients were included who underwent surgery alone (n=41) or neoadjuvant therapy (n=71) between October 2010 and December 2015. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT), endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), and combined positron-emission tomography (PET) and CT N-stage were compared to pathological N-stage [node-negative (N0) versus node-positive (N+) groups]...
