Abstract:

Background: Prostate cancer is the second most prevailing cancer among men worldwide. In the most cases, prostate cancer is slowly progressing, whereas, in some cases, it is a rapidly progressing disease leading to the significantly high mortality rate. Thus, there is still demand for prostate-specific imaging in order to provide image-guided early diagnosis and for the provision of patient-specific therapy.

Discussion: Besides discussing traditional diagnostic approaches, this review illustrates a perspective on prostate cancer imaging summarizing current imaging approaches with a special focus on Prostate Specific Membrane Antigen (PSMA), Bombesin (BN) and Androgen Receptor (AR) targeted imaging using Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Single Positron Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) based on 99mTc and other radiotracers. Here, the prostate biology is reconsidered for nuclear imaging as future modality for early, rapid and efficient diagnosis of prostate cancer.

Conclusion: Future direction in prostate cancer imaging involves the development of androgen receptor based imaging using nonsteroidal antiandrogen agent for early diagnosis of prostate cancer.

MOST ACCESSED ARTICLE – Diagnostic Imaging of Hepatocellular Carcinoma – Current Medical Imaging Reviews

Journal: Current Medical Imaging Reviews

Author(s): Tomasz K. Nowicki*, Karolina Markiet, Edyta Szurowska

Graphical Abstract:

 

Abstract:

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common primary liver cancer, which develops mostly in the setting of chronic liver disease. European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) and European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) prepared guidelines for screening, follow-up and diagnosis of HCC to facilitate decision making and optimize both diagnostic and therapeutic protocols.

 

The review briefly describes etiology, epidemiology and histopathology of HCC and presents EASL-EORTC guidelines for surveillance and diagnosis of HCC. Target population and screening algorithm is presented in the surveillance section. Ultrasound imaging of HCC and the role of contrast enhanced ultrasound are described as well as the value of laboratory tests in screening. Further, radiological features of HCC in multiphase CT and dynamic contrast enhanced MRI and diagnostic criteria are presented. Additionally, the advantages of advanced techniques in MRI such as diffusion weighed imaging and the use of hepatocyte-specific contrast agents are discussed.

Lastly, the EASL-EORTC guidelines are compared with the guidelines of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases and the Japan Society of Hepatology. Also LI-RADS and the Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer classification are mentioned.
In the near future, due to the ongoing advances in imaging a revision of the guidelines may be expected.
