Omental infarction and epiploic appendagitis are subtypes of a broader entity of abdominal fat necrosis known as intraperitoneal focal fat infarction (IFFI). IFFI is an uncommon cause of acute abdominal pain in children, and a known mimicker of acute appendicitis. The CT appearance of IFFI is well described, but the appearance is less familiar on MRI and is a potential imaging pitfall. Familiarity with the MRI appearance of IFFI is particularly timely, given the growing use of MRI in the evaluation of right lower quadrant pain in children. The purpose of this educational exhibit is to review the clinical history, pathologic appearance and treatment of IFFI, and describe MRI features that will allow the radiologist to make the correct diagnosis.

The exponential growth in medical imaging parallels today’s growth in consumer technology. At the forefront of this growth are 3D printing and augmented reality. Their uses in medicine today are in their infancy and radiologists play a key role in nurturing these technologies to ensure their meaningful use in medicine. In this educational exhibit, we showcase the use of 3D printing and augmented reality in helping a pediatric surgeon visualize a complex brachial plexus tumor in a 6-year-old boy prior to its resection. We will describe the process of developing the models, including our role as radiologists. Read More
