Delayed phase imaging increases the sensitivity of detection of injuries to the urinary tract and also assists in characterizing solid visceral organ injuries at the expense of doubling the radiation dose to the patient. If institutions can lower the rate of these examinations, the cumulative radiation exposure reduction would be substantial. Here we evaluate the rate of delayed phase imaging in the pediatric trauma population at our Level I trauma center as well as the frequency with which these patients demonstrate an indication on portal venous imaging for delayed phase acquisition. Finally, there are minimal guidelines dictating the appropriateness of delayed imaging in pediatric trauma. We include a review of the literature in order to elucidate appropriate indications and help guide clinicians to make evidenced based decisions. Read More

The objective for a low dose imaging protocol was to eliminate patient risks and to reduce radiation doses. Tube placements are confirmed via imaging thereby avoiding utilization of malpositioned tubes. Reduced technical parameters lessen the absorbed skin dose. A limited field of view which includes distal espohagus and airway allows accurate assessment of feeding tube position. The new region of interest eliminates unnecessary exposure to hypersensitive organs including, thyroid and reproductive structures. This coned down view requires a lower image quality thereby allowing a lower dose approach. Read More

The purpose of this educational exhibit is to present a systematic 4-sequence hanging protocol and search pattern as an effective method to initially review a pediatric MR enterography (MRE) study prior to thorough interpretation. By analyzing frequently referenced sequences in MRE reports with positive inflammatory bowel disease findings, we identified novel 4-sequence hanging protocol: coronal T2-weighted HASTE (for anatomic orientation), axial fat-saturated fluid-sensitive sequence (for bowel wall thickening/edema), axial diffusion-weighted high b-value sequences (for bowel inflammation and complications), and coronal gradient-recall echo T1-weighted post-contrast (for enhancement). This structured 4-sequence hanging protocol highlights the most pertinent findings and allows for rapid first-pass evaluation to orient novice readers. The exhibit provides an efficient framework for radiology trainees to streamline review of pediatric MREs before proceeding to full detailed interpretation. Read More

Optimization of ultrasound (US) scanning planes for evaluation of different joint components of subjects with blood-induced arthropathy can decrease scanning time without compromising diagnostic information. The purpose of this study was to identify the most diagnostically informative set of US planes for assessment of arthropathy in growing joints of persons with hemophilia based on frequency of findings.

Bowel obstruction in the neonate is common. When neonatal intestinal obstruction is suspected, initial workup may include abdominal radiographs or ultrasound; however, in most busy pediatric radiology practices fluoroscopy is indicated to diagnose the cause, which helps the surgeon make management decisions. Accurate diagnosis is key to the successful management of these neonates. The fluoroscopist should be mindful of the methods and techniques which make evaluation of distal bowel obstruction straightforward and efficient. This exhibit will detail the rationale and protocol to perform the optimal contrast enema, which is essential to have a chance to reliably distinguish the several causes of distal bowel obstruction in neonates. Will include examples with imaging findings and differential diagnoses. Read More

The purpose of our presentation is to discuss the UGI protocols, tips and tricks, standardized reports we obtained by consensus of the 17 member, multi-institutional, multi-continenetal SPR fluoroscopy committee. We present our standarized UGI protocols along with acceptable variations in practice. We also present tips and tricks to tailor the study to specific indications. Discussion includes case examples of recommended protocols and special modifications based on specific clinical presentation. Read More
