Abstract: Retrograde femoral implantation is considered the less invasive approach for TAVI, however TAVI patients are also often affected by severe iliac-femoral arteriopathy, rendering the trans-femoral approach either unemployable or are deemed to carry a high risk of vascular injury.

Int J Radiol Imaging†Technol Volume 3, Issue 2

Abstract: Castleman's Disease (CD) is a rare benign lymphoproliferative disorder of uncertain origin which most commonly involves the mediastinum but rarely affects the axilla. We report a case of voluminous axillary unicentral CD, detected due to palpation of a painless mass in the left axilla in a healthy 32-year-old woman.

Int J Radiol Imaging†Technol Volume 3, Issue 2

Abstract: Seeking out and identifying imaging biomarkers for early cancer diagnosis and the evaluation of patient response to therapy requires an improvement in the specificity of imaging techniques. This study explores in vivo neo-angiogenesis assessment using molecular mechanisms through target molecular Magnetic Resonance (MR) and Ultrasound (US).

Ultrasound Can Accurately Diagnose Fibroadenomas in Women Less Than 35 Years

Mustafa Khanbhai, Rita Borgen and Richard Dobrashian
Int J Radiol Imaging†Technol Volume 3, Issue 2

Abstract: Best practice guidelines suggest that patients < 25 years with ultrasound diagnosis of fibroadenoma, biopsy can be avoided if certain radiological criteria are satisfied. There is a cohort of patients < 35 years with ultrasound features suggestive of fibroadenoma who are being exposed to unnecessary biopsies.
