THIS MONTH’S HIGHLIGHT voices: CT technology as an accurate diagnostic tool for immune-related adverse events and for hepatocellular carcinoma

Dear readers,

The series of Professor Eisenblätter’s podcasts, dedicated to the fundamental role of CT imaging in the oncologic setting, progresses. Two new podcasts are now on air, related to the use of CT for identifying immune-related adverse events and for the proper staging of liver lesions, respectively.

Both topics are also described in the two selected papers, while the three cases from the archive linked below show the essential advantages of CT technology in the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma.

As usual, suggestions for topics to be covered in future issues of this newsletter are welcome:
please send us your proposals at
