Editor’s Choice – “Dual Energy Computed Tomography Angiography in the Peripheral Arterial Imaging: A Systematic Review of Image Quality, Radiation Dose and Diagnostic Value”

Journal: Current Medical Imaging Reviews

Author(s): Abdulrahman Almutairi and Zhonghua Sun



To perform a systematic review of the diagnostic value of dual energy computed tomography angiography (DECTA) in peripheral arterial disease (PAD). PubMed, ProQuest, Medline and ScienceDirect were searched for studies evaluating DECTA compared to conventional computed tomography angiography (CTA) and digital subtraction angiography (DSA) in patients with PAD. Diagnostic value, image quality and radiation dose were analysed and compared. Nine studies comprising a total of 286 patients were found to meet selection criteria where DECTA was used to evaluate lower extremities. The mean estimates of sensitivity and specificity of DECTA were 95.8% (95% CI: 84 to 97.2%) and 79.8% (95% CI: 78 to 97%). Reduction of the contrast medium volume up to 50% was found to achieve an adequate image quality at the optimal keV setting. The mean effective dose for DECTA was 9.51 mSv (95% CI: 7.56 to 11.18 mSv). DECTA is a non-invasive and an accurate diagnostic procedure in the diagnostic assessment of peripheral arterial disease with high diagnostic value.

Most Cited Articles – “MRI of Focal Liver Lesions”

Journal: Current Medical Imaging Reviews

Author(s): Nils Albiin

cmirAbstract: Magnetic resonance imaging, MRI has more advantages than ultrasound, computed tomography, CT, positron emission tomography, PET, or any other imaging modality in diagnosing focal hepatic masses. With a combination of basic T1 and T2 weighted sequences, diffusion weighted imaging, DWI, and hepatobiliary gadolinium contrast agents, that is gadobenate dimeglumine (Gd-BOPTA) and gadoxetic acid (Gd-EOB), most liver lesions can be adequately diagnosed. Benign lesions, as cyst, hemangioma, focal nodular hyperplasia, FNH or adenoma, can be distinguished from malignant lesions. In a non-cirrhotic liver, the most common malignant lesions are metastases which may be hypovascular or hypervascular. In the cirrhotic liver hepatocellular carcinoma, HCC, is of considerable importance. Besides, intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma and other less common malignancies has to be assessed. In this review, the techniques and typical MRI features are presented as well as the new algorithm issued by American Association for the Study of the Liver Diseases (AASLD).
