Health Economic Evaluation of Primovist-enhanced Liver MRI

2014-08-27 03:27:16 | BioPortfolio


Patients with a history of colorectal cancer and known or suspected liver metastases who are scheduled for contrast-enhanced tomographic imaging will be included in this study. After randomization to either Primovist-enhanced MRI, extracellular contrast media (ECCM)-enhanced MRI or contrast-enhanced (CE)-CT outcomes and resource needs of the diagnostic work-up and treatment will be evaluated for each of the three imaging modalities. Main objectives of the study are to assess the proportion of patients for whom further imaging is required to come to a therapy decision and to evaluate the proportion of patients with intraoperatively modified surgical plans after Primovist-enhanced MRI as compared to ECCM-enhanced MRI and CE-CT.

Added Value of Contrast Medium in Whole-Body Hybrid PET/MRI: Comparison Between Contrast-Enhanced and Non-Contrast-Enhanced Protocols.

To compare the diagnostic ability and time efficiency of contrast-enhanced (CE) whole body FDG PET/MRI protocol and non-contrast-enhanced (NCE) protocol.

Texture features of colorectal liver metastases on pretreatment contrast-enhanced CT may predict response and prognosis in patients treated with bevacizumab-containing chemotherapy: a pilot study including comparison with standard chemotherapy.

Bevacizumab added to chemotherapy can improve survival in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer, but no predictive factors of efficacy are available in clinical practice. The aim of this study is...
