Spectral CT Imaging in the Differential Diagnosis of Small Bowel Adenocarcinoma From Primary Small Intestinal Lymphoma
Presenter: Dr. Vinayak Jayaram
Chairperson: Dr. Rajesh Helavar
MHRG conducted a Journal meeting on 15 TH March 2019 which was chaired by Dr. Rajesh Helavar and attended by the PGs, cross-section fellows, and consultants across Columbia Asia sites.
The session comprised a presentation by Dr. Vinayak Jayaram on “Spectral CT Imaging in the Differential Diagnosis of Small Bowel Adenocarcinoma From Primary Small Intestinal Lymphoma”
The aim of the journal was to investigate the value of dual-energy spectral computed tomography (CT) imaging in the differential diagnosis of small bowel adenocarcinoma (SBA) from primary small intestinal lymphoma (PSIL). SBA and PSIL are malignant tumors of the small intestine with quite different clinical treatments from each other. The quantitative parameters obtained in spectral CT, especially the iodine concentration in AP, provide high accuracy for differentiating SBA from primary small intestinal lymphoma
