Computed tomography of gastrointestinal leiomyosarcoma

Gastrointestinal Radiology
R A Clark, E S Alexander


Computed tomography (CT) was performed in 6 patients with gastrointestinal leiomyosarcoma. The characteristic CT findings were a large extraluminal mass, apparently mesenteric in location, with central areas of necrosis. These findings were present in 5 of the 6 patients. Enhancement of the rim of the tumor was seen in 2 of 3 patients who had scans before and after administration of intravenous contrast material. CT identified the site of origin of tumor in only 2 patients. The characteristic CT findings should suggest the diagnosis of gastrointestinal leiomyosarcoma.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.
