Whole-body magnetic resonance imaging (WB-MRI) is an increasingly important tool in pediatric oncology. Optimized WB-MRI protocols allow for abbreviated imaging of young patients with excellent tissue contrast/resolution and without ionizing radiation exposure. Recent data suggest a role for WB-MRI in pediatric cancer staging, cancer predisposition syndrome (CPS) surveillance and evaluation for chemotherapy-related osteonecrosis. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the performance of WB-MRI in these populations. Read More

Final Pr. ID: Poster #: SCI-037

SPICA MRI with gadolinium contrast administration is routinely performed after closed reduction for the treatment of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). Quantifying the degree of femoral head enhancement and abduction angles are routinely performed to identify and stratify those patients who may be at risk for epiphyseal osteonecrosis. The purpose of our study is to evaluate predictors for epiphyseal osteonecrosis based on percentage enhancement and abduction angles evaluated based on SPICA MRI. Read More
