Craniosynostosis is the premature fusion of one or more cranial sutures, leading to deformed head shape, increased intracranial pressure and restricted brain growth. The most reliable diagnostic method to use is computed tomography (3D–CT). Aim of this study was to present the characteristics of children with craniosynostosis and to compare US findings with 3D–CT as “gold standard”. Read More

Computed Tomography (CT) is still recommended as the first-line imaging method for the evaluation of premature closure of cranial sutures.
The aims of this exhibit are:
1. To present the anatomy and physiology of cranial sutures;
2. To discuss technical aspects of CT imaging and structured report in craniosynostosis;
3. To present the main imaging findings of isolated and syndromic craniosynostosis.
Teaching cases from our institution will be employed to illustrate the following topics:
1. Cranial sutures: anatomy and time of closure;
2. Imaging evaluation of cranial sutures: sonography (US), radiograph (XR) and CT - technique and protocols;
3. Recognizing a patent suture and distinguishing a normally closed suture from synostosis;
4. Craniosynostosis: pathophysiology, clinical features and associated genetic conditions;
5. Multi-modality imaging appearance of:
- Dolichocephaly;
- Brachycephaly;
- Trigonocephaly;
- Posterior plagiocephaly.
6. The role of imaging in evaluating positional plagiocephaly
7. Syndromic craniosynostosis - main CT imaging features of:
- Crouzon syndrome
- Apert syndrome
- Pfeiffer syndrome
- Saethre-Chotzen Syndrome
8. What matters for surgery planning? Tips on how to organize your report.

To review the imaging appearance of the skull in hypophasphatasia (HPP). This pictorial review includes the serial imaging appearances, commencing from diagnosis, and throughout treatment with enzyme replacement therapy (ERT). The development of craniosynostosis is shown, as is the post surgical appearance following total cranial vault remodelling. Read More

Abnormal head shape is a common indication for imaging. While radiographs and ultrasound can play an important role, computed tomography is often the first imaging modality in the imaging work-up of abnormal head shape. It is important to understand the imaging appearance of normal sutures on each imaging modality and the normal progression of suture closure. The aim of this pictorial essay is to demonstrate the normal imaging appearance of the sutures on radiograph, ultrasound and computed tomography and to illustrate the features of the most common synostoses including single-suture craniosynostoses involving the metopic, sagittal and coronal sutures, and multi-suture craniosynostosis including Apert’s syndrome, Crouzon’s syndrome and Pfeiffer syndrome. In particular, we discuss the imaging work-up of multi-suture craniosynostosis including use of magnetic resonance imaging with an emphasis on pre- and post-operative imaging features and reporting tips.

The clinical implications of craniosynostoses reach far beyond their striking cosmetic deformities. If untreated, craniosynostoses can lead to increased intracranial pressure, restriction of brain growth, and developmental delay, making the recognition of the findings and appropriate diagnosis critical. This electronic poster will provide an overview of various craniosynostoses including trigonocephaly, scaphocephaly, plagiocephaly, brachycephaly, and the various combinations of abnormally fused sutures, with an emphasis on 3D reconstruction imaging. In addition, the expected timing of the fusion of sutures will be described, as well as potential pitfalls in the interpretation of craniosynostosis, including metopic ridge. A brief review of Crouzon, Pfeiffer, and Apert syndromes, those syndromes most commonly associated with craniosynostosis, will be provided. Read More
