Impact of Fractionated Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy on Liver Function in Patients with Hepatitis B Virus–related Hepatocellular Carcinoma: Clinical and Dosimetric Analysis

Full Article

Hong Kong J Radiol 2013;16:94-9

DOI: 10.12809/hkjr1312147

Objective: To investigate the impact of fractionated stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) on liver function and identify any dosimetric parameters that may predict deterioration of liver function in patients with hepatitis B (HBV)–related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).

Regional Variation within the Cerebral Cortex Evaluated by Diffusion-weighted Imaging and Apparent Diffusion Coefficients on 1.5T and 3T Magnetic Resonance Images

Full Article

TW Yeung, HY Lau, YC Wong

Hong Kong J Radiol 2013;16:100-9

DOI: 10.12809/hkjr1313172

Objective: We aimed to determine whether cerebral cortices have regional variation on diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) and corresponding apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) maps. We also aimed to explore the effect of using 1.5T and 3T MRI with respect to such regional variation.

Cone-beam Computed Tomography of the Paranasal Sinuses: Comparison Study with Multidetector Computed Tomography

Full Article

PL Kei, JSP Tan, JL Leong, YM Kwok, WEH Lim, LL Chan

Hong Kong J Radiol 2013;16:110-6

DOI: 10.12809/hkjr1313167

Objectives: Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) in sinonasal imaging is fairly novel and remains limited to date. This study aimed to compare (1) the image quality of CBCT and multidetector computed tomography (MDCT), and (2) the eye lens dose for paranasal sinus imaging between these two modes of imaging.

Active Tuberculous Endobronchitis: Computed Tomography Findings and Implications

Full Article

THT Sung, JSF Shum, WH Kwan

Hong Kong J Radiol 2013;16:117-22

DOI: 10.12809/hkjr1312149

Objective: To describe the pattern of bronchostenosis revealed by computed tomography and virtual bronchoscopy in patients with active tuberculous endobronchitis and associated pulmonary manifestations.
