The role of transarterial embolization has been well studied in adults but data is lacking in the pediatric population. As a newly designated level 1 trauma center we present our institutional experience of the efficacy and safety of transarterial embolization for pediatric abdominal and pelvic trauma as well as a review of the current literature. We discuss the multidisciplinary approach to management and the role of the interventionalist as a clinician. Read More

Learning Objective: This educational exhibit will review a variety of pediatric splenic lesions and their appearance on various specific multimodality imaging finding as seen on ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This exhibit will also review an algorithm to approaching non-cystic splenic lesions in pediatrics. Read More

Teaching Points
1. To review the normal imaging appearance of the spleen on ultrasound, CT and MRI.
2. Discuss the imaging characteristics of various pediatric splenic pathology.
3. Learn the epidemiology, appropriate imaging workup, and management of congenital pediatric splenic abnormalities.

The spleen can be involved in a wide range of pathologies, yet can be frequently overlooked on imaging. Splenic disorders can be seen in isolation or may be secondary to a systemic disease. Different imaging modalities can be utilized to evaluate the spleen and include ultrasound, CT, and MRI. We will perform a case-based review of the imaging characteristics of various types of pediatric splenic pathologies. After completing this educational exhibit, the reader will be able to recognize the various causes and imaging characteristics of pediatric splenic diseases. The following topics will be discussed:
Congenital splenic anomalies – asplenia, polysplenia, accessory spleen
Splenic cysts
Splenic metastasis

Ninety percent of biliary atresia cases occur with no associated anomalies. Ten percent of cases of biliary atresia are considered syndromic, occurring in association with a variety of congenital anomalies including heterotaxy, polysplenia, asplenia, congenital cardiac defects, intestinal malrotation, interrupted IVC, hepatic artery anomalies, and portal vein anomalies, including pre-duodenal portal vein. The incidence of hepatopulmonary syndrome is also increased in this group. Images from CT, MR, radiography, nuclear medicine, ultrasound and fluoroscopy will illustrate the variety of imaging appearances of the biliary atresia/splenic malformation syndrome. Read More
