Magnetic resonance and computed tomography in pediatric urology: an imaging overview for current and future daily practice.
The main imaging modality of the urinary tract in children is ultrasound. When further cross-sectional morphologic examination and/or functional evaluation is required, magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is the logical and optimal second step, particularly in pediatric patients. There are two main exce...
Magnetic resonance imaging of pediatric muscular disorders: recent advances and clinical applications.
This review describes various quantitative magnetic resonance imaging techniques that can be used to objectively analyze the composition (T2 relaxation time mapping, Dixon imaging, and diffusion-weighted imaging), architecture (diffusion tensor imaging), mechanical properties (magnetic resonance ela...
Magnetic resonance arthrography of the upper extremity.
Although magnetic resonance arthrography is not indicated for every clinical scenario, capsular distention can significantly improve visualization of intra-articular pathologic conditions. With attention to technique, intraarticular injection can be completed successfully with little patient discomf...
Imaging of dural arteriovenous fistula.
Spinal dural arterial venous fistulas (SDAVFs) are the most common vascular malformation of the spine. They typically present in elderly men with slowly progressive myelopathic symptoms. They often go undiagnosed because of the similar clinical presentation of more common entities in...
Imaging of acute pancreatitis: update of the revised Atlanta classification.
Acute pancreatitis is an acute inflammatory process of the pancreatic gland with increasing incidence worldwide. Usually the clinical presentation and course are mild, with an uneventful recovery. In 10% to 20% of patients, however, local and systemic complications develop, resulting...
Preoperative and postoperative MR evaluation of congenital heart disease in children.
Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) plays an important role in the preoperative and postoperative evaluation of congenital heart disease with newer techniques enabling faster and more comprehensive evaluation of the pediatric patient. This article reviews the clinical app...
Imaging modalities in pediatric oncology.
This article reviews the roles of specific imaging modalities in the diagnosis and management of noncentral nervous system childhood cancer. Imaging modalities to be discussed include conventional radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and nuclear medicine, includin...
Adrenal masses in children.
Adrenal tumors include those of neural and cortical origin. Although most neuroblastomas present as abdominal masses, pheochromocytomas and cortical tumors usually present with endocrine dysfunction. Although imaging may not be able to differentiate benign lesions from malignant tumors, or whether th...
Imaging surveillance of differentiated thyroid cancer.
Intensive imaging surveillance has resulted in the ability to detect small-volume, often clinically occult, residual or recurrent disease. For most patients with differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC), such findings are unlikely to have an impact on disease-specific survival but our abi...
Primary hyperparathyroidism is a common endocrine disorder caused by the overproduction of parathyroid hormone either by a single adenomatous gland or by multiple adenomatous or hyperplastic glands. Surgical resection of the abnormal parathyroid glands is the standard treatment, the...
