Cheng Zhong, Hai-Yang Xie, Lin Zhou, Xiao Xu, Shu-Sen Zheng
BACKGROUND: Because of an increasing discrepancy between the number of potential liver graft recipients and the number of organs available, scientists are trying to create artificial liver to mimic normal liver function and therefore, to support the patient's liver when in dysfunction. 3D printing technique meets this purpose. The present study was to test the feasibility of 3D hydrogel scaffolds for liver engineering. METHODS: We fabricated 3D hydrogel scaffolds with a bioprinter...

BACKGROUND: The use of gadolinium contrast agents in cardiovascular magnetic resonance is well-established and serves to improve both vascular imaging as well as enable late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) imaging for tissue characterization. Currently, gadofosveset trisodium, an intravascular contrast agent, combined with a three-dimensional inversion recovery balanced steady state free precession (3D IR bSSFP) sequence, is commonly used in pediatric cardiac imaging and yields excellent vascular imaging, but cannot be used for late gadolinium enhancement...

BACKGROUND: Due to the wide availability of genetically modified animals, mouse orthotopic liver transplantation is often preferred over rat liver transplantation. We present a simplified mouse liver transplantation technique, and compare transplantation outcomes with versus without hepatic artery anastomosis. METHODS: Instruments for liver implantation were designed and 3D-printed. The suprahepatic vena cava anastomosis was performed with 10-0 running suture. The vena porta and infrahepatic vena cava were joined on extraluminal cuffs, using the 3D-printed device for spatial alignment and stabilisation...

PURPOSE: To compare the length of the right hepatic duct (RHD) measured on rotatory coronal 2D MR cholangiography (MRC), rotatory axial 2D MRC, and reconstructed 3D MRC. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sixty-seven donors underwent coronal and axial 2D projection MRC and 3D MRC. RHD length was measured and categorized as ultrashort (≤1 mm), short (>1-14 mm), and long (>14 mm). The measured length, frequency of overestimation, and the degree of underestimation between two 2D MRC sets were compared to 3D MRC...

BACKGROUND: Hepatoblastoma (HB) is the most common malignant liver tumor in childhood. Complete HB surgical resection which is technically demanding is the cornerstone of effective therapy with a good prognosis. The aim of our study is to evaluate the usefulness of 3D simulation software in assisting hepatectomy in pediatric patients with HB. METHODS: 21 children with HB who underwent hepatectomy were enrolled in this study. All patients underwent computer tomography (CT) imaging preoperatively...

Human VLDLs assembled in the liver and secreted into the circulation supply energy to peripheral tissues. VLDL lipolysis yields atherogenic LDLs and VLDL remnants that strongly correlate with CVD. Although the composition of VLDL particles has been well-characterized, their 3D structure is elusive because of their variations in size, heterogeneity in composition, structural flexibility, and mobility in solution. Here, we employed cryo-electron microscopy and individual-particle electron tomography to study the 3D structure of individual VLDL particles (without averaging) at both below and above their lipid phase transition temperatures...

Paper gives a review of recent technical innovations in computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that could be applied in abdominal oncology. Perfusion and dualenergy CT gives new opportunities for tissue characterization. Interactive reconstruction algorythms decrease radiation exposure to patients. Abdominal MRI has some important advantages over CT in detection and staging of abdominal malignancies. Nowadays standard MR protocols include DWI and dynamic 3D sequences with extracellular or liver-specific contrast media...

OBJECTIVES: Evaluate the performance of Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction 3D (AIDR 3D) and compare with filtered-back projection (FBP) regarding radiation dosage and image quality for an 80-kVp abdominal CT. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An abdominal phantom underwent four CT acquisitions and reconstruction algorithms (FBP; AIDR 3D mild, standard and strong). Sixty-three patients underwent unenhanced liver CT with FBP and standard level AIDR 3D. Further post-acquisition reconstruction with strong level AIDR 3D was made...

Computer-assisted systems for planning and navigation of liver resection procedures rely on the use of patient-specific 3D geometric models obtained from computed tomography. In this work, we propose the application of Poisson surface reconstruction (PSR) to obtain 3D models of the liver surface with applications to planning and navigation of liver surgery. In order to apply PSR, the introduction of an efficient transformation of the segmentation data, based on computation of gradient fields, is proposed. One of the advantages of PSR is that it requires only one control parameter, allowing the process to be fully automatic once the optimal value is estimated...

BACKGROUND: An expert consensus meeting had defined the standard lymphadenectomy during pancreatoduodenectomy for an adenocarcinoma of the head of the pancreas. There is a controversy regarding the possibility to perform this optimal lymphadenectomy by minimally invasive approach. PATIENTS: The patient was a 68-year-old man with the diagnosis of an adenocarcinoma of the head of the pancreas. The 3D reconstructions evidenced the existence of a right hepatic artery...

In conventional 4D positron emission tomography (4D-PET), images from different frames are reconstructed individually and aligned by registration methods. Two issues that arise with this approach are as follows: (1) the reconstruction algorithms do not make full use of projection statistics; and (2) the registration between noisy images can result in poor alignment. In this study, we investigated the use of simultaneous motion estimation and image reconstruction (SMEIR) methods for motion estimation/correction in 4D-PET...

PURPOSE: A method is proposed to reconstruct a four-dimensional (4D) dose distribution using phase matching of measured cine images to precalculated images of electronic portal imaging device (EPID). METHODS: (1) A phantom, designed to simulate a tumor in lung (a polystyrene block with a 3 cm diameter embedded in cork), was placed on a sinusoidally moving platform with an amplitude of 1 cm and a period of 4 s. Ten-phase 4D computed tomography (CT) images of the phantom were acquired...

PURPOSE: Many centers aim to plan liver transarterial radioembolization (TARE) with dosimetry, even without CT-based attenuation correction (AC), or with unoptimized scatter correction (SC) methods. This work investigates the impact of presence vs absence of such corrections, and limited spatial resolution, on 3D dosimetry for TARE. METHODS: Three voxelized phantoms were derived from CT images of real patients with different body sizes. Simulations of (99m)Tc-SPECT projections were performed with the SIMIND code, assuming three activity distributions in the liver: uniform, inside a "liver's segment," or distributing multiple uptaking nodules ("nonuniform liver"), with a tumoral liver/healthy parenchyma ratio of 5:1...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate feasibility of a 3D-isotropic self-gated radial volumetric interpolated breath-hold examination (VIBE) for late-phase MRI of the liver. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 70 patients were included and underwent liver MRI at 1.5 T. Depending on the diagnosis, either Gd-EOB-DTPA (35 patients) or gadobutrol (35 patients) were administered. During late (gadobutrol) or hepatocyte-specific phase (Gd-EOB-DTPA), a radial prototype sequence was acquired and reconstructed using (1) self-gating with 40 % acceptance (rVIBE40); (2) with 100 % acceptance of the data (rVIBE100) and compared to Cartesian VIBE (cVIBE)...

PURPOSE: To investigate the feasibility of estimating the proton-density fat fraction (PDFF) using a 7.1T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system and to compare the accuracy of liver fat quantification using different fitting approaches. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fourteen leptin-deficient ob/ob mice and eight intact controls were examined in a 7.1T animal scanner using a 3D six-echo chemical shift-encoded pulse sequence. Confounder-corrected PDFF was calculated using magnitude (magnitude data alone) and combined fitting (complex and magnitude data)...
