Gastrointestinal diagnosis using non-white light imaging capsule endoscopy.

Nat Rev Gastroenterol Hepatol 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Endoscopy Unit, The Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK.

Capsule endoscopy (CE) has proved to be a powerful tool in the diagnosis and management of small bowel disorders since its introduction in 2001. However, white light imaging (WLI) is the principal technology used in clinical CE at present, and therefore, CE is limited to mucosal inspection, with diagnosis remaining reliant on visible manifestations of disease. The introduction of WLI CE has motivated a wide range of research to improve its diagnostic capabilities through integration with other sensing modalities. Read More

Radiomics and its advances in hepatocellular carcinoma.

Zhong Nan Da Xue Xue Bao Yi Xue Ban 2019 Mar;44(3):225-232

Department of Radiology, Muhimbili National Hospital, Dar es Salaam 65000, Tanzania.

Liver cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide, so early detection and prediction for response to treatment is of great benefit to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients. Currently, needle biopsy and conventional medical imaging play a significant and basic role in HCC patients' management, while those two approaches are limited in sample error and observer-dependence. Radiomics can make up for this deficiency because it is an emerging non-invasive technic that is capable of getting comprehensive information relevant to tumor situation across spatial-temporal limitation.

Barcelona Hepatic Hemodynamic Lab, Liver Unit, Hospital Clinic de Barcelona, University of Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain; CIBER Hepatic and Digestive Diseases, Instituto de Salud Carlos III, Madrid, Spain. Electronic address:

Portal hypertension in the absence of portal vein thrombosis and without cirrhosis, but with mild or moderate alterations of liver histology (eg, obliterative venopathy, nodular regenerative hyperplasia, or incomplete septal cirrhosis) is being increasingly recognised. Owing to the heterogeneity of causes and histological findings, a substantial number of terms have been used to describe such idiopathic non-cirrhotic portal hypertension. Patients with the same clinical and histological features exist, but without portal hypertension at the time of diagnosis. Read More
