Computed tomography colonography: Retrospective comparison of laxative plus barium tagging versus iodinated contrast only for bowel preparation and faecal tagging.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2019 Feb 20. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Department of Radiology, Auckland City Hospital, Auckland, New Zealand.

Introduction: There is no consensus as to the most optimal bowel preparation regime for Computed Tomographic Colonography (CTC). Concerns regarding laxative bowel preparation (LBP) include tolerability, adverse effects and complexity of regimen. Two hospitals in Auckland changed CTC bowel preparation from standard LBP to Gastrografin (GG) in 2015. Read More

Diagnostic reference levels for F-FDG whole body PET/CT procedures: Results from a survey of 12 centres in Australia and New Zealand.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Faculty of Health Sciences, Discipline of Medical Radiation Science, The University of Sydney, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Introduction: The aim of this work is to report diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) for hybrid positron emission tomography and x-ray computed tomography (PET/CT) exams in Australia (AU) for Queensland (QLD) and Western Australia (WA) (AU QLD/WA) and New Zealand (NZ).

Methods: Two-structured booklets were designed to collect dose information, patient demographics, equipment details and acquisition protocols for fluoride-18 fluorodeoxyglucose ( F-FDG) PET/CT procedures, and any additional diagnostic CT routinely performed as part of F-FDG whole-body examination. The DRL was reported based on the 75 percentile and achievable dose for F-FDG, CT dose index volume (CTDI ) and dose length product (DLP). Read More

Natural language processing to identify ureteric stones in radiology reports.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2019 Feb 5. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

The Canterbury Initiative, Canterbury District Health Board, Christchurch, New Zealand.

Introduction: Natural language processing (NLP) is an emerging tool which has the ability to automate data extraction from large volumes of unstructured text. One of the main described uses of NLP in radiology is cohort building for epidemiological studies. This study aims to assess the accuracy of NLP in identifying a group of patients positive for ureteric stones on Computed Tomography - Kidneys, Ureter, Bladder (CT KUB) reports. Read More

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Northern Sydney Cancer Centre, Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Introduction: Assess survival of patients with anaplastic glioma (AG) and the relationship to molecular subtype.

Methods: Patients with AG managed with IMRT between 2008 and 2014 were entered into a prospective database assessing relapse-free survival (RFS) and overall survival (OS). Isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) mutations were assessed prospectively from 2011, and subsequent testing of historical patients allowing categorisation under WHO 2016 classification as anaplastic astrocytoma IDH wild type (AAwt), anaplastic astrocytoma IDH mutated (AAmut), anaplastic oligodendroglioma (AOD) or other glial tumour (OTH).

Pictorial review of Morel-Lavallée lesions.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2019 Jan 16. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Women and Children Hospital Adelaide, Benson Radiology, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia.

A Morel-Lavallée lesion is a post-traumatic soft tissue degloving injury which presents as a haemolymphatic mass or collection. Morel-Lavallée lesions are the result of direct trauma or shearing forces abruptly separating skin and subcutaneous tissue from underlying fascia causing disruption of perforating vessels and nerves, creating a potential space that may fill with blood, lymph and debris forming a collection. Morel-Lavallée lesions usually occur adjacent to osseous protuberances, most commonly along the greater trochanter. Read More

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2019 Jan 10. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Emergency Department, Monash Medical Centre, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Authors:
Tony Chen Hao Xiao

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2018 Dec 24. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Department of Radiology, Western Health, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Introduction: The aim of this study is to compare the diagnostic sensitivity between dual-energy computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) studies and routine single-energy CTPA studies.

Methods: A total of 117 patients with clinically suspected pulmonary embolism were examined with dual-energy CTPA (DECT) and reformatted single-energy multidetector CTPA (MDCT) studies. Two independent radiologists assessed the image quality of the CTPAs with objective and subjective parameters, including by assigning an image quality score out of 10 for each study. Read More

Spontaneous middle lobe torsion in a patient with multicentric Castleman disease: A case report.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2018 Nov 23. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Department of Medical Imaging, The Townsville Hospital, Townsville, Queensland, Australia.

We describe a rare case of middle lobe lung torsion in a patient with a tension hydrothorax secondary to multicentric Castleman disease. The case demonstrates the difficulty of diagnosing torsion prospectively, and the possible sequelae of delayed detection. Although imaging features can be confusing, an awareness of this condition and careful image interpretation by radiologists could facilitate early recognition and management of a torted lobe.

Randomized double-blind trial of amifostine versus placebo for radiation-induced xerostomia in patients with head and neck cancer.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2019 Feb 21;63(1):142-150. Epub 2018 Nov 21.

School of Medicine, University of Adelaide, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia.

Introduction: The role of the radioprotector amifostine in ameliorating radiotherapy side effects in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is controversial. This trial aimed to determine whether pretreatment with amifostine reduced the incidence of Radiation Therapy Oncology Group grade ≥2 acute and late xerostomia in patients receiving definitive or adjuvant radiotherapy for HNSCC, without reducing tumour control or survival.

Methods: Between 14 September 2001 and 8 November 2004, 44 Royal Adelaide Hospital patients were randomized double-blind to receive amifostine (200 mg/m IV) or placebo (normal saline IV) 5 days/week, prior to standard radiotherapy (60-70 Gy), each having ≥75% of the parotids treated to ≥40 Gy.

Computer vs human: Deep learning versus perceptual training for the detection of neck of femur fractures.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2019 Feb 8;63(1):27-32. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

Radiology Department, Royal Melbourne Hospital, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Introduction: To evaluate the accuracy of deep convolutional neural networks (DCNNs) for detecting neck of femur (NoF) fractures on radiographs, in comparison with perceptual training in medically-naïve individuals.

Methods: This study extends a previous study that conducted perceptual training in medically-naïve individuals for the detection of NoF fractures on a variety of dataset sizes. The same anteroposterior hip radiograph dataset was used to train two DCNNs (AlexNet and GoogLeNet) to detect NoF fractures. Read More

Endovascular therapy in acute basilar artery occlusion: A retrospective single-centre Australian analysis.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2019 Feb 8;63(1):33-39. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

Department of Radiology, Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Introduction: Stroke caused by basilar artery occlusion (BAO) is a rare but potentially devastating neurological condition, with poor outcomes and high mortality rates, approaching 70-90%. Success of intravenous and intra-arterial thrombolysis in BAO is variable, leading to Endovascular Therapy (EVT) being utilized to a greater degree in this clinical setting. We investigate the use of EVT in BAO with regard to success of revascularization and patient mortality/outcome. Read More
