Thermal Ablation versus stereotactic body radiation therapy following trans-arterial chemoembolization – A comparison of outcomes

Full article: https://www.ajronline.org/doi/10.2214/AJR.20.24117 Percutaneous interventions are the mainstay for patients with non-operative HCC. This podcast by Ben Kipper, MD examines a paper comparing outcomes between thermal ablation and stereotactic body radiation therapy following transarterial chemoembolization and how those outcomes might affect clinical treatment plans going forward.

Malignant Outcomes of Architectural Distortion

Full article: https://www.ajronline.org/doi/abs/10.2214/AJR.20.23935 Architectural distortion is a subtle but suspicious finding increasingly detected using digital breast tomosynthesis. Alicia Chen, MD discusses a timely meta-analysis by Dr. Choudhery and colleagues that found the pooled positive predictive value for AD without a known cause on DBT is 35%, the great majority of which represents invasive disease. This finding warrants tissue sampling.

Ultrasound guided percutaneous biopsy of small pleural lesions

Full article: https://www.ajronline.org/doi/10.2214/AJR.20.24120 In this episode, Yoon-Jin Kim, MD discusses a study evaluating the diagnostic yield of ultrasound guided percutaneous biopsy of small pleural lesions. Important findings include that the technique is safe and fairly high yield for lesions 20 mm or less and that features such as nodular.

Evaluating PI-RADS 3 atypical BPH nodules using v2.1.

Full article: https://www.ajronline.org/doi/abs/10.2214/AJR.20.24370 Emma Ferguson, MD discusses a new article comparing atypical BPH prostatic nodules in the problematic prostate transition zone to traditional PI-RADS 3 lesions using PI-RADS version 2.1. All nodules contain pathologic confirmation from biopsy.

Prediction of Stroke Recurrence: A Comparison of Transthoracic Echocardiography, Cardiac CTA, and Cardiac MRI in Patients with Suspected Cardioembolic Stroke

Full article: https://www.ajronline.org/doi/abs/10.2214/AJR.20.23903 Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is the standard of care in cardiac imaging for patients with suspected cardioembolic stroke. In this podcast, Amber Liles, MD discusses how cardiac MRI and cardiac CT angiography perform in comparison to TTE in terms of prediction of stroke recurrence.

Can an unconventional diffusion weighted technique aid in the MRI management of sacroiliitis?

Article: https://www.ajronline.org/doi/abs/10.2214/AJR.20.23953 Shrey Patel, MD discusses a new AJR article on whether using an unconventional DWI technique, readout-segmented echo-planar imaging, can improve image quality and differentiate disease activity in patients with axial spondyloarthritis.

CT and MR perform similarly using Bosniak v2019 for cystic renal masses

Article: https://www.ajronline.org/doi/abs/10.2214/AJR.20.23656 In this episode, David Ballard, MD summarizes Bosniak version 2019 (v2019) and Tse et al.’s imaging cohort with study radiologists applying Bosniak v2019.

Liver steatosis categorization on contrast-enhanced CT using a fully-automated deep learning volumetric segmentation tool: Evaluation in 1,204 healthy adults using unenhanced CT as the reference standard

Article: https://www.ajronline.org/doi/abs/10.2214/AJR.20.24415 Shrav Sridhar, MD discusses a retrospective study in which automated volumetric segmentation-assisted hepatic parenchymal attenuation measurement was performed on contrast-enhanced and unenhanced abdominal CT scans of a cohort of healthy adults to investigate the possibility of stratifying liver fat content on contrast-enhanced CT.

Increasing Specificity of Recommendations for Renal Incidentalomas

Incidentally detected renal masses are common, and can require follow-up. Recommendations from the 2017 ACR white paper on incidental renal masses suggests that small homogeneous masses measuring less than 20 Hounsfield units are probably benign, and do not require further characterization. However, new evidence from a multi-institutional study in AJR suggests that this cutoff should be raised to at least 30 Hounsfield units. In this episode, Matthew Petterson, MD discusses the new evidence.

Treating Sinistral Portal Hypertension: Stenting or Embolization? A first-of-its-kind study.

Frederic J. Bertino, MD reviews a new AJR study in which the authors attempt to compare the clinical efficacy and technical feasibility of Splenic vein stenting and splenic artery embolization (the current standard) for the treatment of SPH.
