Irradiation therapy (IRT) can be either separate from, or a part of, the overall treatment of head and neck malignancies aimed at prolonging a patient's life. Carotid artery (CA) stenoses are frequent consequences of IRT, which increase the risk of cerebrovascular incidents (CVI) and the resultant mortality [1,2]. Atherosclerotic disease further contributes to the progression of the post-irradiation stenoses (pIRs) of the CA, with CVI recorded even 20 years after IRT [3-5].

Biomed Imaging Interv J 2014; 10(1):e2

Cervical cancer is one of the most common malignancies in developing countries. It has long been the most common cancer in Thai women until after the year 2000, when it became the second most common to breast cancer [1,2]. Radiation therapy plays a major role in locally advanced cervical carcinoma. Concurrent chemoradiation demonstrated overall survival benefit in locally advanced cervical cancer comparing to radiation therapy alone [3].

A novel automatic method for extraction of glioma tumour, white matter and grey matter from brain magnetic resonance images

Resmi A, Thomas T, Thomas B
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2013; 9(2):e21

Gliomas are the most frequent primary brain tumours, and astrocytomasare the most common subtype. Astrocytoma grading is important for determining both prognosis and therapy. According to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) classification of brain tumours, gliomas are divided into low-grade (grades I and II) and high-grade (grades III and IV) tumours.

Dosimetric comparison between RapidArc® and conventional fixed-field intensity-modulated radiotherapy for prostate cancer

Lui OY, Li WK, Lock CKM, Chow CF, Lo HY, Lam YF, Law MYY
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2013; 9(3):e17

Prostate cancer is the third most common male cancer in Hong Kong. Radiotherapy plays an important role in treating early and medium stage prostate cancer. Sufficient radiation dose to the target tumour has often been limited by the associated toxicities due to the target proximity to normal structures such as rectum and bladder near the irradiated region

Iatrogenic carotid-jugular fistula while attempting superior vena cava stenting

Chandramohan A, Keshava SKN, Mammen T
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2013; 9(2):e11

Jugular venous access is an initial step for various interventional radiology procedures. Carotid artery puncture is the most common complication of jugular venous access [1]; however carotid-jugular fistula is uncommon. We report an iatrogenic carotid-jugular fistula which developed while attempting jugular venous access prior to superior vena cava (SVC) stenting in a patient with carcinoma lung and SVC syndrome.

Over the years I have been fascinated by the increasingly sophisticated role robots have been playing in surgery. I even championed the cause of the surgeons who have been struggling to get our hospital to purchase a surgical robotic system. We came very close to achieving our goal, but failed as the circumstances were not in our favour.

Now you see it, now you don’t! A case of delayed “cyclical” breast implant seroma

Ho ELM, Lim CL
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2013; 9(3):e16

A 39-year-old lady who had textured silicone breast implants 5 years ago presented with "on and off" enlargement of the left breast for 6 months. Mammograms and ultrasound of the breasts showed a seroma around her left breast implant only, which subsided in the repeat ultrasound after her menses ended. Delayed periprosthetic fluid collections or seromas have a reported incidence of only about 0.1%. To the authors’ knowledge, this patient may be the first report of a delayed breast implant seroma that was cyclical in nature.

Retrograde warm pyelo-perfusion for protection of the ureter during image-guided cryoablation of central renal cell carcinoma: a prospective evaluation

Wah TM, Chapman S, Cartledge J
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2013; 9(3):e13

Percutaneous cryoablation and radiofrequency ablation (RFA) have emerged as safe and effective treatments for small renal cell carcinoma (RCC) [1, 2]. The aim of these energy-based ablative procedures is to achieve complete and homogenous destruction of a pre-determined volume of tissue, which would otherwise be removed during a conventional partial nephrectomy [3]. This is performed by heating (RFA) or cooling (cryoablation) the target tissue sufficiently to cause tissue necrosis.

Medical image compression using visual quantisation and modified run length encoding

Cyriac M, Chellamuthu C
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2013; 9(2):e5

Recent advancements in the medical imaging modalities have increased the volume of data produced and stored in medical databases. The traditional lossless compression techniques fail to provide sufficient amount of compression for the large volume of data produced by the current 3-D modalities. Thus, there is a requirement to look into other alternatives for compressing medical images.

The comparison of high-risk clinical target volumes between computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging in cervical cancer

Tharavichitkul E, Samorn N, Wanwilairat S, Lookaew S, Nopnop W, Wannasri J, Chitapanarux I
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2013; 9(1):e4

Radiotherapy for carcinoma of the cervix, composed of external beam radiotherapy and brachytherapy, with a cumulative dose of 85–90 Gy, is required for treatment. For brachytherapy, film-based planning has been used for a long time with the prescription of point As and limitation points of the International Commissural of Radiological Units (ICRU) [1]. However, the film-based treatment planning still poses questions about the real geometry of the tumour and the real position of organs at risk (OARs; bladder, rectum).

Risk of medical imaging

Hendee W
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2013; 9(1):e3

Over the past few years papers have appeared in the scientific literature that predict thousands of cancers and cancer deaths each year in populations of patients receiving medical imaging procedures (primarily computed tomography) employing ionizing radiation. The predictions in these papers are computed by estimating very small and hypothetical risks at low radiation doses and multiplying these speculative estimates by large numbers of patients experiencing medical imaging.

Patient-specific quality assurance of RapidArc treatments: Portal prediction dosimetry compared with phantom studies

Krishna Murthy K
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(4):e28

Verification of RapidArc treatment delivery plays an essential role in clinical practice to assess the quality of radiotherapy given to patients. Implementation of a comprehensive quality assurance (QA) programme for patient treatment verification is an important aspect of radiotherapy. The objective of such a QA programme is to evaluate the accuracy in machine delivery as per tolerance limits so as to ensure that adequate level of quality treatment is delivered to patients.

Challenges in the delivery of radical radiotherapy for locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer

Tho LM, McJury M, Ho GF, Han S, Muirhead R
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(3):e20

Locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) encompasses a heterogeneous collection of tumour and nodal stages. Despite recent advances, the overall survival for this group remains poor. Radical radiotherapy remains the mainstay of treatment. The complexities involved in the delivery of radical radiotherapy to the lung pertain to tumour volume definition, intra- and inter-fraction motion (namely tumour motion caused by respiration and GTV migration during treatment) and the proximity of organs at risk to the high-dose region.

A rare primary malignant vaginal melanoma detected by 18 [F]-FDG PET/CT imaging

Fathinul Fikri AS, Masiyati J, Hemlata KG, Abdul Jalil N
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(4):e27

A malignant melanoma in the vagina is a rare entity, for which there is little evidence-based literature for guiding clinicians to understand the importance of disease staging via noninvasive imaging strategy. Conventional imaging techniques i.e. computed tomography (CT) may be suboptimal in evaluating a small volume tumour, which may lead to inaccurate staging of a loco-regional tumour.

Feasibility and optimal timing of T2-weighted imaging after the administration of gadolinium-ethoxybenzyl-diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid in hepatobiliary MRI

Nishikawa H, Shimohira M, Sakurai K, Nakagawa M, Ozawa Y, Shibamoto Y
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(4):e25

Gadolinium-ethoxybenzyl-diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA: EOB) is a new liver-specific magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent. A bolus injection of EOB enables tumour vascularity to be evaluated in a manner that is similar to evaluation using gadolinium-diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (Gd-DTPA) [1, 2]. Moreover, this contrast agent accumulates in normally functioning hepatocytes at delayed phase (hepatobiliary phase), which begins at 20 minutes and lasts until 40 minutes after administration [1–3].

Primary intracranial hemangiopericytoma with mesenteric and retroperitoneal spread

Yesilkaya Y, Akinci D, Topcuoglu M, Tanas O, Altundag K
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(4):e24

Hemangiopericytoma is an uncommon mesenchymal tumour that originates from Zimmermann’s pericytes. It accounts for about 0.4 % of all tumours that occur within the primary central nervous system (CNS). It is characterized clinically by its delayed local recurrence and extracranial metastases. To the best of our knowledge, mesenteric and retroperitoneal metastases from meningeal hemangiopericytomas have not been reported before. Herein we present the case of a 60-year-old man who exhibits mesenteric and retroperitoneal metastases from primary intracranial hemangiopericytoma after 11 years of follow up.

Primary breast lymphoma: clinical and imaging features

Muttarak M, Ngernbumrung W, Kongmebhol P
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(4):e23

Primary breast lymphoma (PBL) is rare; it accounts for less than one percent of all breast malignancies and approximately two percent of extranodal lymphomas [1–3]. The rarity of PBL may be related to the relatively small amount of lymphoid tissue that is present in the breast as compared to the gut or lung, in which the occurrence of primary lymphomas are much more frequent [4].

Chest wall seeding of nocardiosis as a complication of a percutaneous transthoracic needle biopsy

Low SF, Abu Bakar N, Ngiu CS
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(4):e22

This paper highlights an uncommon complication of a percutaneous transthoracic needle biopsy (PTNB). A patient with rheumatoid arthritis who was on immune suppressive drugs underwent a PTNB of a lung nodule. The histology showed “organizing usual interstitial pneumonia-like changes.” Unfortunately, one month after the PTNB, she developed a large deep-seated chest wall abscess at the biopsy needle tract and the previously seen lung nodule was larger. Nocardiosis sp. was isolated from the chest wall abscess. The lung and chest wall lesions were resolved with Bactrium and Fluconazole. The final diagnosis was pulmonary nocardiasis complicated by chest wall seeding following the PTNB procedure.

Traumatic retroclival epidural hematoma and unilateral occipital condylar fracture in an adult patient

Chu CY
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(3):e21

Retroclival epidural hematoma is rare, with fewer than 30 cases reported in the literature. Almost all of the previously reported cases occurred in children, with only a few cases affecting adults. Among these adult patients, only two suffered from the associated occipital condyle fracture (OCF), which is another rare injury. The patient involved in this study suffered from retroclival epidural hematoma and unilateral occipital condyle fracture, as demonstrated on both CT and MRI scans. The patient also suffered from an associated right brachial plexus injury without any other neurological deficits, a condition that has not previously been reported.

Healing of floating unapposed drug eluting stent struts: insights from 3D optical coherence tomography

Foin N, Viceconte N, Alegria E, Davies JE, Di Mario C
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(3):e16

Pathological evidence suggests that coverage of malapposed struts in Drug Eluting Stents is necessary to limit risks of late and very late stent thrombosis. In this case report, the coverage of the struts left unapposed in bifurcations using 3D Optical Coherence Tomography is illustrated. The follow-up with optical coherence tomography (OCT) suggests that struts which were left unapposed at the ostium become covered with a thick layer of tissue, which differs from the thin coverage found on well-apposed struts.

Dialysis catheter fibrin sheath stripping: a useful technique after failed catheter exchange

Mohamad Ali AF, Uhwut E, Liew SK
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(1):e8

Fibrin sheath formation around long-term haemodialysis catheter is a common cause of failed dialysis access. Treatment options include pharmacological and mechanical methods. This paper reports a case of failed dialysis access due to fibrin sheath encasement. Pharmacologic thrombolysis, mechanical disruption using guide wire and catheter exchange had failed to address the issue. Eventually, fibrin sheath stripping using the loop snare technique was able to successfully restore the catheter function.

Effective connectivity between superior temporal gyrus and Heschl’s gyrus during white noise listening: linear versus non-linear models

Hamid KA, Yusoff AN, Rahman MZA, Mohamad M, Hamid AIA
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(2):e13

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is one of the many modalities used in neuroscience studies to detect brain activation resulting from a performed task [1]. It basically measures the haemodynamic responses related to neuronal activity in human as well as animal brains. These responses are based on changes in blood flow, volume, and oxygenation and are commonly known as blood-oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) [1].

Quality assurance of TomoDirect treatment plans using I’mRT MatriXX

Kong CW, Yu SK, Cheung KY, Geng H, Ho YW, Lam WW, Wong WK
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(2):e14

TomoTherapy introduced its latest HD radiation therapy platform, which allows both TomoHelical delivery mode [1–5] and TomoDirect mode. TomoDirect is a non-rotational treatment option [6] in which the radiation dose can be delivered at different discrete gantry angles with continuous couch and multileaf collimator (MLC) movement. Due to the dynamic nature of TomoDirect treatment, it is very important for medical physicists to use the right tools to achieve quality assurance goals when employing this treatment technique.

Social radiology: Where to now?

Ho ELM
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(1):e9

Radiology is a relatively high-cost and high-maintenance aspect of medicine. Expertise is constantly required, from acquisition to its use and quality assurance programmes. However, it is an integral part of healthcare practice, from disease diagnosis, surveillance and prevention to treatment monitoring. It is alarming that two thirds of the world is deficient in or lacks even basic diagnostic imaging. Developing and underdeveloped countries need help in improving medical imaging. Help is coming from various organisations, which are extending hands-on teaching and imparting knowledge, as well as training trainers to increase the pool of skilled practitioners in the use of imaging equipment and other aspects of radiology services. The scene for social radiology is changing and set to positively impact the world in the (near) future.

Pelvic lipomatosis: US and CT diagnosis

Yesilkaya Y, Duymus M, Topcuoglu M
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(2):e12

Pelvic lipomatosis is an uncommon benign disease that causes different symptoms due to the compression of pelvic organs by an intrapelvic overgrowth of mature fatty tissue. Engels first described the condition in 1959 [1]. The aetiology of the disease has not been established. However, it has been speculated that the fat proliferation might be associated with chronic pelvic inflammation due to chronic urinary tract infection [2]. In adults, endocrine diseases such as Cushing’s syndrome, hypothyroidism, insulin-secreting tumours, and neoplastic disease involving the hypothalamus (mainly craniopharyngioma) may also be a factor in the acquired obesity [2, 3].

Congenital renal anomalies detected in adulthood

Muttarak M, Sriburi T
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(1):e7

Congenital abnormalities of the kidney and urinary tract occur in approximately 3.3–11.1% of the population and they account for about 50% of all congenital abnormalities [1]. Congenital abnormalities of the kidney are a leading cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in children and also cause subsequent renal problems in adulthood because many renal anomalies predispose the patient to obstruction, which leads to stone formation, infection, hypertension, and renal failure. Imaging plays an important role in early diagnosis and proper management.

The History of AOSR: Asian Oceanian Society of Radiology

Leong LY, Hare WSC, Thomson KR
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 7(4):e30

In the 1960s, there was a growing awareness of the need to develop closer ties between radiologists in the various nations of Asia and Oceania. Not only would this provide opportunities to learn from one another, but more importantly, it would contribute towards furthering harmonious regional and international relationships. To this end, in the northern hemisphere of this region consideration was given to forming a Far Eastern Society, whilst in the southern hemisphere of the region, national radiological societies in Australia, New Zealand and some South-East Asian countries had similar ideas.

Dosimetric evaluation of radiation dose rate effect in respiratory gated intensity modulated radiation therapy

Khamfongkhruea C, Tannanonta C, Thongsawad S
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(1):e5

Intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) utilises small beamlets of ionising radiation to provide a high radiation dose to a target while at the same time reducing the dose to normal organs [1]. However, dose uncertainties of IMRT technique occur when the treated target volume moves outside the beam aperture and the normal organ near the target can receive a high dose if it moves into the field [2].

Anatomical variations of pulmonary venous drainage in Thai people: multidetector CT study

Wannasopha Y, Oilmungmool N, Euathrongchit J
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(1):e4

Generally, the body’s vasculature shows a different pattern in each individual, called normal variation. Likewise, the pulmonary vein also shows variations. This vein is an important source of ectopic atrial electrical activity, frequently initiating paroxysms of atrial fibrillation [1, 2]. Increasingly, selective radiofrequency ablation of these arrhythmogenic foci is performed to treat patients with refractory atrial fibrillation. The effectiveness of this invasive procedure relies on precise mapping and complete disconnection of the electrical initiators from the atrial tissue.

Fine needle aspiration of lung lesion: Lateral and transpectoral approach

Smith K
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2012; 8(1):e2

A 69 year-old man presented with an incidental finding on radiograph of a lesion in the left upper lobe. CT indicated it was likely to be a neoplasm and CT-guided FNA was requested. The lesion was located medial to the scapula so a creative approach was utilised to gain access to the lesion. This study discusses the approach used and why it reduced patient risk compared to a more conventional procedure. The sample was positive for neoplasm and there were no complications arising from the procedure.

There are a variety of surgical approaches which can be used and radiology plays a crucial role in post operative follow up, particularly in the management of complications. Many general radiologists remain unfamiliar with both the normal and abnormal appearances after bariatric surgery and this pictorial review aims to bridge this gap.

Echocontrast cystosonography versus micturating cystourethrography in the detection of vesicoureteric reflux

Faizah MZ, Kanaheswari Y, Thambidorai CR, Zulfiqar MA
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2011; 7(1):e7

Vesicoureteric reflux (VUR) is defined as retrograde flow of urine from the bladder into the renal collecting system that provides a pathway for ascent of bacteria in the presence of urinary tract infection [1–3]. This will result in renal scarring and subsequent renal hypertension and even worse, renal failure [4].

Imaging overutilisation: Is enough being done globally?

Rehani B
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2011; 7(1):e6

The discovery of X rays by Roentgen in 1895 was one of the greatest discoveries with historical impact on on each and every one of us. The ability to view anatomy and infer function of inner organs and tissues of human body has provided immense potential that have led imaging to therapeutic arena through interventions and follow-up. How much imaging is appropriate is a legitimate question to ask.

Superselective embolisation for control of intractable epistaxis from maxillary artery injury

Singam P, Thanabalan J, Mohammed Z
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2011; 7(1):e3

Traumatic intractable epistaxis following fractures of the facial and base of skull rarely may be life-threatening. Common sites of injury are the internal carotid and maxillary artery. When conventional methods of arresting haemorrhage fail, the choices are then an open arterial ligation or superselective embolisation. This paper presents a patient with life-threatening epistaxis from a Le Fort type II fracture. Angiography revealed a maxillary artery injury in which superselective embolisation was performed and the haemorrhage was successfully arrested. A literature review of this technique is discussed, including its advantages and the relationship of the internal maxillary artery to facial fractures.

Development and use of iron oxide nanoparticles (Part 2): The application of iron oxide contrast agents in MRI

Mandarano G, Lodhia J, Eu P, Ferris NJ, Davidson R, Cowell SF
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2010; 6(2):e13

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging tool that can incorporate contrast agents to enhance its ability to identify and characterise pathologies. MRI contrast agents can be paramagnetic such as gadolinium, or superparamagnetic such as iron oxide. Significant concerns of Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) have arisen involving gadolinium-based contrast media. Recent research has focused on iron oxide nanoparticles because their sizes are more comparable to biological units. These can give MRI the potential to detect a broader range of pathology, while also track and observe biological processes.

State and future of interventional radiology in Malaysia

Abdullah BJJ
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2009; 5(4):e33

The fundamental principle of the Malaysian healthcare system is that accessibility to health care should not be related to one’s ability to pay, especially when involving sickness [1]. This is based on the Government’s recognition that health represents human capital, which forms the central thrust to sustainable economic growth and development of the country.

Superdominant right coronary artery with absent left circumflex artery

Majid Y, Warade M, Sinha J, Kalyanpur A, Gupta T
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2011; 7(1):e2

Noninvasive imaging of coronary artery disease is rapidly replacing angiography as the first line of investigation. Multislice CT is the non-invasive modality of choice for imaging coronary artery disease and provides high speed with good spatial resolution. CT coronary angiography in addition to detecting and characterising atherosclerotic coronary artery disease is also a good imaging tool for evaluating anomalies of coronary arteries.

Optimal slice thickness for cone-beam CT with on-board imager

Seet KYT, Barghi A, Yartsev S, Van Dyk J
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2010; 6(3):e31

Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) is carried out to improve treatment accuracy in patients. The Varian on-board imaging (OBI) system is an IGRT modality that permits kilovoltage cone-beam CT on the treatment machine. kVCBCT obtains 3D volumetric studies of patients in the treatment room immediately before radiation delivery. The main advantage of cone-beam CT is the minimisation of patient movement between imaging and treatment, such that dose gradients conform to planning target volumes.

Biomed Imaging Interv J 2010; 6(4):e35

This is a retrospective descriptive study of the chest imaging findings of 118 patients with confirmed A(H1N1) in a tertiary referral centre. About 42% of the patients had positive initial chest radiographic (CXR) findings. The common findings were bi-basal air-space opacities and perihilar reticular and alveolar infiltrates. In select cases, high-resolution computed tomography (CT) imaging showed ground-glass change with some widespread reticular changes and atelectasis.

An intense 18F-FDG pulmonary microfocus on PET without detectable abnormality on CT: A manifestation of an iatrogenic FDG pulmonary embolus

Fathinul Fikri AS, Lau WFE
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2010; 6(4):e37

An incidental finding of an intense focus of 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) pulmonary uptake on positron emission tomography (PET) without detectable lesions on computed tomography (CT) is highly suggestive of FDG microembolus. Its microscopic nature means it is undetectable on CT. It is an artefact attributable to 18F-FDG-tracer contamination at the injection site.

Significance of subcentimetre <sup>18</sup>F-FDG PET/CT pulmonary abnormality in patients with known extrapulmonary malignancy

Fathinul Fikri AS, Lau WFE
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2010; 6(4):e34

The significance of a subcentimetre 18F-FDG PET/CT pulmonary abnormality in a patient with known extrapulmonary primary malignancy can have a major impact on the clinical management of the patient. The clinician’s reliance on the semi-quantitative and qualitative PET/CT analysis of the abnormality has, at times, led to untoward diagnostic problems, given the limited spatial resolution of PET for a small volume lesion performed as part of the standard PET/CT study.

Ho ELM
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2010; 6(3):e8

When x-rays were first discovered, the harmful effects of radiation had to be manifest in the early users before they were known. Today, radiation protection and safety have been established and the effects of radiation, as well as its risks, are known. Even so, medical radiation, in particular the growth in the use of computed tomography (CT), has resulted in soaring radiation doses received by the population in general.

Aortic dissection: Identification of entry site with CT virtual intravascular endoscopy

Cao Y, Sun Z, Shang Y, Jiang B, Ma X
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2010; 6(3):e22

Aortic dissection is a common vascular disease which has high morbidity and mortality if it presents with acute onset. Early diagnosis, characterisation of the type of dissection and identification of intimal tear (entry site) is important for patient management. CT angiography, especially with widely-used multislice CT imaging technique, is the method of choice for diagnosis of aortic dissection.

Muttarak M, Sangchan S, Kongmebhol P, Sukhamwang N, Chaiwun B
Biomed Imaging Interv J 2010; 6(3):e21

Breast carcinoma is a histologically heterogeneous disease. Invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) is the second most common breast malignancy after invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC), accounting for 1% to 20% of all breast cancers [1]. This wide variation reflects different diagnostic criteria and the inclusion of variant forms of the cancer. However, most studies suggest that approximately 7-10% of all invasive breast cancers are ILC [2-4].
