However, the safety of contrast media–enhanced CT in patients with advanced renal functional impairment, an established major risk factor for PC-AKI, is unknown. Materials and Methods This is a retrospective study using large data analysis of hospitalized patients at a single center. Adults... Investigative Radiology - Current Issue 10:34 A Solution for Homogeneous Liver Enhancement in Computed Tomography: Results From the COMpLEx Trial Objectives The aim of the study was to reach homogeneous enhancement of the liver, irrespective of total body weight (TBW) or tube voltage. An easy-to-use rule of thumb, the 10-to-10 rule, which pairs a 10 kV reduction in tube voltage with a 10% decrease in contrast media (CM) dose, was evaluated. Materials and Methods A total of 256 patients scheduled for an abdominal CT in portal venous phase were randomly allocated to 1 of 4 groups. In group 1 (n = 64), a tube voltage of 120 kV and a TBW-adapted... Investigative Radiology - Current Issue 10:34 Human Hair as a Possible Surrogate Marker of Retained Tissue Gadolinium: A Pilot Autopsy Study Correlating Gadolinium Concentrations in Hair With Brain and Other Tissues Among Decedents Who Received Gadolinium-Based Contrast Agents Objectives We used laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry to quantify gadolinium in hair samples from autopsy cases with gadolinium-based contrast agent (GBCA) exposure. Hair gadolinium data were correlated with gadolinium concentrations in brain, skin, and bone tissues from the same case to investigate a potential noninvasive method for gadolinium quantification and monitoring. Materials and Methods Medical records from autopsy cases at our institution were screened... Investigative Radiology - Current Issue 10:34 Gray Matter Nucleus Hyperintensity After Monthly Triple-Dose Gadopentetate Dimeglumine With Long-term Magnetic Resonance Imaging Objectives Gadolinium deposition is widely believed to occur, but questions regarding accumulation pattern and permanence remain. We conducted a retrospective study of intracranial signal changes on monthly triple-dose contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations from the previously published Betaseron vs. Copaxone in Multiple Sclerosis With Triple-Dose Gadolinium and 3-Tesla MRI Endpoints Trial (N = 67) to characterize the dynamics of gadolinium deposition in several deep brain... Investigative Radiology - Current Issue 10:34 Evaluation of the Reproducibility of Bolus Transit Quantification With Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound Across Multiple Scanners and Analysis Software Packages—A Quantitative Imaging Biomarker Alliance Study Objectives Contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) is now broadly used clinically for liver lesion detection and characterization. Obstacles to the efforts to quantify perfusion with CEUS have been the lack of a standardized approach and undocumented reproducibility. The use of multiple scanners and different analysis software packages compounds the degree of variability. Our objectives were to standardize a CEUS-based approach for quantification of perfusion-related parameters of liver lesions and... Investigative Radiology - Current Issue 10:34 Tailoring Contrast Media Protocols to Varying Tube Voltages in Vascular and Parenchymal CT Imaging: The 10-to-10 Rule The latest technical developments in CT have created the possibility for individualized scan protocols at variable kV settings. Lowering tube voltages closer to the K-edge of iodine increases attenuation. However, the latter is also influenced by patient characteristics such as total body weight. To maintain a robust contrast enhancement throughout the patient population in both vascular and parenchymal CT scans, one must adapt the contrast media administration protocols to both the selected kV setting... Investigative Radiology - Current Issue 10:34 Ultrasound Molecular Imaging With BR55, a Predictive Tool of Antiangiogenic Treatment Efficacy in a Chemo-Induced Mammary Tumor Model Objectives The aim of this study was to evaluate the added value of ultrasound molecular imaging of the vascular growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR2) expression, using the clinical grade contrast agent BR55, for the early evaluation of antiangiogenic treatment efficacy in a chemo-induced rat mammary tumor model.

We also posit that the shame associated with NSSI triggers repetitive negative thinking, in turn increasing insomnia.
