The “question-mark” MR anatomy of the cervico-thoracic ganglia complex: can it help to avoid mistaking it for a malignant lesion on 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET/MR?

location of the sympathetic cervico-thoracic ganglia (CTG) and their surroundings (A) and examples of elevated PSMA-ligand uptake, potentially suggesting malignancy in both CTG complexes (B) , in the left CTG (C) and in the right CTG (D) on fused PET/MR T2-weighted images presented with application of different colour maps. AOR = aortic arch; LCM = longus colli muscle; MCG = middle cervical sympathetic ganglion; SA = subclavian artery; SN = spinal nerve; T2-G = 2nd thoracic sympathetic ganglion; T3-G = 3rd thoracic sympathetic ganglion; VA = vertebral artery; VG

Prognostic role of diffusion weighted and dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI in loco-regionally advanced head and neck cancer treated with concomitant chemoradiotherapy

, Germany) with a neck array coil. The diagnostic imaging protocol included axial T2-weighted sequences with short tau inversion recovery (STIR) from the base of the scull to aortic arch (TR/TE 5010/71 ms, TI 170 ms, flip angle (FA) 70°, receiver bandwidth 287 Hz/pixel, matrix size 256 x 256, slice thickness 3 mm, gap 0.3 mm and field of view (FOV) 18 x 18 cm). Axial slices that covered the entire primary tumour were selected for DWI and DCE-MR imaging. DWI images were acquired in axial plane using pulsed spin-echo echo-planar image sequence (TR/TE 3600/86 ms, receiver

Endovascular treatment of unruptured aneurysms of cavernous and ophthalmic segment of internal carotid artery with flow diverter device Pipeline

institution we have a single-plain C-arm system Axiom Artis (Siemens, Germany). We use a classical approach using the Seldinger technique. After the puncture of the femoral artery we introduce the angiographic catheter fist into the femoral artery and then via the aorta and the aortic arch into the common carotid artery. A detailed angiographic processing of the aneurysms with preoperative angiography in typical projections, rotating three-dimensional subtraction angiography with computerized data processing, construction and reconstruction of an aneurysm in the head
