Capability and Pitfalls of Hepatic Dynamic MRI Using Gd-EOB-DTPA in the Diagnosis of Hepatic SOLs
Yuko Nakamura et al

EXHIBIT HOURS: Sun. 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Mon. – Thurs. 7:00 AM – 10:00 PM
Fri. 7:00 AM – 12:45 PM
LOCATION: Lakeside Learning Center
●SUMMARY:
1. The sensitivity of EOB-MRI for hepatic tumors is higher than of other imaging modalities.
2. In patients with liver damage hepatic EOB uptake is lower and tumors can be obscured. Liver and spleen intensity must be compared to confirm hepatic enhancement.
3. In patients with portal tumor embolism or arterioportal shunt, tumor extension on hepatobiliary phase scans can be overestimated.
4. To differentiate hepatic hemangiomas from metastatic tumors is difficult on EOB-MRI. T2WI is better.

Imaging Hepatocellular Carcinoma after Locoregional Therapy: Impact of Hepatocyte-specific MR Contrast Agents
Daniel C. Bar et al

EXHIBIT HOURS: Sun. 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Mon. – Thurs. 7:00 AM – 10:00 PM
Fri. 7:00 AM – 12:45 PM
LOCATION: Lakeside Learning Center
●SUMMARY:
Newer hepatocyte-specific MR contrast agents may exhibit some variation from traditional extracellular agents in their dynamic enhancement profile as well as providing unique information about excretory capacity of tumors in the hepatobiliary phase. Typical enhancement patterns for HCC post therapy have not been firmly established for hepatocyte-specific agents, and this exhibit will illustrate the gamut of appearances for this important imaging indication.

What Is the Optimal Time to Assess the Therapeutic Response of Lung Cancer on FDG-PET Scans?
Daisuke Komoto et al

EXHIBIT HOURS: Sun. 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Mon. – Thurs. 7:00 AM – 10:00 PM
Fri. 7:00 AM – 12:45 PM
LOCATION: Lakeside Learning Center
●SUMMARY:
FDG-PET is highly useful for the assessment of therapeutic responses of lung cancer because it can identify decreases in tumor metabolism before shrinkage of the tumor size. While assessment of the response in the early phase of therapy is desirable, the optimal timing for post-treatment PET study remains to be determined. We discuss the optimal time for assessing the response of lung cancer to therapy.

LL-OBE2556
Clinical Role of Multidetector CT (MDCT) in the Prenatal Diagnosis of Skeletal Dysplasia
Chihiro Tani et al

EXHIBIT HOURS: Sun. 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Mon. – Thurs. 7:00 AM – 10:00 PM
Fri. 7:00 AM – 12:45 PM
LOCATION: Lakeside Learning Center
●SUMMARY:
Compared with US, MDCT yields an accurate prenatal diagnosis of skeletal dysplasia because it demonstrates the entire skeletal system, metaphyseal abnormalities, and decreased mineralization. MRI is inferior to CT because it cannot evaluate fetal bone mineralization. The radiation dose at fetal CT may be within an acceptable range from the standpoint of the genesis of malformation or cancer, however, a dose reduction is highly desirable from the standpoint of the ALARA principle.

Low Contrast and Low Radiation Dose Protocol for Hepatic Dynamic CT at 256-Row CT: Usefulness of Low Tube Voltage and iDose Reconstruction Algorithm
Takeshi Nakaura et al

DATE: Sunday, November 27 2011
TIME: 11:45 AM – 11:55 AM
LOCATION: E450B
●PURPOSE:
It has been suggested that low tube voltage scanning allows reducing the radiation- and contrast dose, and that the iterative reconstruction algorithm improves image quality at low tube voltage scanning. We evaluated the feasibility of a low contrast-, low radiation dose protocol at abdominal dynamic CT using 80 kVp and “hybrid iterative reconstruction algorithm (iDose)” at 256-row CT.

Fukushima Nuclear Accident: How Can Radiologists Mitigate the Publics’ Fear to Ionizing Radiation and Radioactive Materials?
Kazuko Ohno et al

EXHIBIT HOURS: Sun. 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Mon. – Thurs. 7:00 AM – 10:00 PM
Fri. 7:00 AM – 12:45 PM
LOCATION: Lakeside Learning Center
●SUMMARY:
We received various questions from general public to mitigate their worry about harmful effects of radiation exposure, especially to their children and fetuses. Information we provided might be not sufficient for solving their anxieties, and communication seemed to be more important. We also posted up Q&A corner on the website of the Japan Radiological Society and have updated according to the state of the accident and publics’ major concerns.

Is It Really ‘Dilated’? Analysis of the Diameter of the Main Pancreatic Duct in Health-check Population
Minobu Kamo et al

DATE: Tuesday, November 29 2011
TIME: 03:40 PM – 03:50 PM
LOCATION: E353C
●PURPOSE:
Dilatation of the main pancreatic duct (MPD) is one of the most important signs in detecting pancreatic cancer or cancer of the papilla in the earlier stage. It is also important in assessing intraductal lesions such as intraductal papillary neoplasms (IPMNs). To evaluate the clinical significance of MPD dilatation, we retrospectively reviewed subjects in which MPD dilatation was detected in our general health check program.

Transmural or Not? That Is the Question: Can We Answer It before the Intestine Is Examined by the Pathologist? Pictorial Review of Acute MESENTERIC ISCHEMIA with MDCT and Its Pathologic Correlation
Alejandro Marin et al

EXHIBIT HOURS: Sun. 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Mon. – Thurs. 7:00 AM – 10:00 PM
Fri. 7:00 AM – 12:45 PM
LOCATION: Lakeside Learning Center
●SUMMARY:
MDCT is an essential tool for the early diagnosis of acute mesenteric ischemia, and for detection of transmural necrosis. These points are very important because they may influence the treatment and prognosis. The knowledge of the physiopathology and correlation with pathology helps radiologists to accurately interpret the key features in the different types of AMI.
