Radiologic management of haemoptysis: diagnostic and interventional bronchial arterial embolisation.
Hemoptyses are life threatening and require urgent diagnostic and therapy. Chest x-ray, bronchoscopy, and contrast-enhanced MSCT with CTA should be carried out before therapeutic bronchial artery embolization (BAE). BAE for the treatment of massive and recurrent hemoptysis is safe and effective. False embolization in spinal branches of BA are the m...
The indication for renal denervation should be assessed in an interdisciplinary fashion and according to current guidelines with a special focus on ruling out secondary causes for arterial hypertension. 5 - 10 % of patients with hypertension suffer from refractory hypertension, but only about 1 % of patients meet the criteria for a renal denervatio...

Imaging of hepatic arterial supply variants using CT-angiography. Distribution of variations of arterial liver supply in a general patient population. Expansion of Michels's classification to include new variations of the arterial liver supply.
The new DIN 6868 - 161 is not equivalent to the established IEC 61 223 - 3-5. Noise, uniformity, and contrast are well-suited to assess image artefacts. The implemented automated quality assurance program fits clinical routine.
Mobile image display systems complement stationary PACS and can be used to view images. The impacts of the new quality assurance guidelines (QS-RL) as well as the upcoming new standard DIN 6868 - 157 on the acceptance testing of mobile image display units for the purpose of image evaluation are discussed.
