OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to compare the albumin-bilirubin (ALBI) grade and model for end-stage liver disease (MELD) scores for predicting survival after transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) creation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective study of pre-procedure ALBI and MELD scores was performed in 197 patients who underwent TIPS from 2005 to 2012. There were 140 men and 57 women, with a mean age of 56±11 (SD) (range: 19-90years)...

PURPOSE: To determine the value of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) in discriminating between hepatic alveolar echinococcosis (AE) and hepatocellular carcinoma and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. METHODS: We included 49 patients (27 men, 22 women; mean age: 52.02±9.76 [SD] years; range: 25-72years) with 57 histopathologically confirmed hepatic AE lesions. Fifty patients (18 men, 32 women; mean age: 58.93±8.42 [SD] years; range: 42-71years) with 61 histopathologically confirmed hepatocellular carcinoma and 50 patients (24 men, 26 women; mean age: 50...

PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the assessability of the suprascapular nerve (SSN) by ultrasonography in cadavers and healthy volunteers. MATERIALS AND METHODS: With ultrasonography guidance, needles were placed at origin of the SSN of four cadavers and evaluated by dissection. Two blinded radiologists performed 60 ultrasonography scans in 30 healthy volunteers to study the entire SSN at five anatomical landmarks. RESULTS: Dissection revealed that the needles were correctly located at the nerve's origin...

PURPOSE: To compare diameters of in vivo microwave ablation (MWA) performed in swine kidneys with ex vivo diameters, and to correlate with ablation work (AW), a new metric reflecting total energy delivered. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Eighteen in vivo MWA were performed in 6 swine kidneys successively using one or two antennas (MicroThermX(®)). Ablation consisted in delivering power (45-120W) for 5-15minutes. Ex vivo diameters were provided by the vendors and obtained on bovine liver tissue...
