Gadolinium based contrast agents have been used in pediatric neuroradiology for years and are thought to be safe when administered appropriately. However, it has been discovered that gadolinium used in routine clinical practice results in gadolinium deposition in the even in patients with normal renal function. No studies have addressed gadolinium deposition in the soft tissues of pediatric patients or its potential ill-effects. The potential for harm may exist. We reviewed our gadolinium use in the follow up of pediatric primary intracranial neoplasms. Read More

Significant progress in improving outcome for patients with oncohematological diseases are attributed to intensive chemotherapy, bone marrow transplantation, platelet transfusions, development of new imaging techniques, new antimicrobials and others. All these advances increase the survival of these patients which in turn increases the frequent of risk of infections that are substantial cause of morbidity and mortality in these patients.
The purpose of this exhibit is to show the spectrum of infections in these patients; describe the imaging finding according to the etiology and associated factors.

There are a number of factors that need to be considered in order to interpret abnormalities seen on radiology as the type of hematological disease, stage of the hematological disease, treatment phase, profile of immunodeficiency, treatment for infection received, patient history and clinical signs. For example, according to type of immunosuppression there are different spectrum of infections but leukemia affect all types of immunosuppression that include neutropenia, T cell defect and B cell defect.

Pediatric stomach tumors encompass a broad range of pathologies. These tumors are rare in the pediatric and adolescent population and can be easily misdiagnosed. In addition, approach to imaging diagnosis in this population may differ from adults. In this educational exhibit, we will focus on stomach tumors. This exhibit will provide viewers with:
1. A visual differential diagnosis of common and uncommon tumors in each section of the stomach with a focus on multi-modality imaging.

2. Review of common imaging findings for each tumor, highlighting high-yield characteristic findings of each.

3. Key findings and tips that can help the practicing radiologist differentiated between benign and malignant tumors.
