Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) is the most common musculoskeletal disorder in children. The temporomandibular joints (TMJs) are involved in majority of cases, and detection of early arthritic changes in these joints relies on contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). However, with the paucity of evidence and consensus on the normal and pathologic changes in this small but complex joint, interpretation of TMJ MRIs remains to be difficult. This exhibit presents the normal growth related and arthritis related variations in the disease progression in TMJ MRIs of JIA patients. Read More

Accurate and reproducible sacroiliac joint (SIJ) assessment on MRI in pediatric patients is challenging, often with high inter-observer variation. To facilitate consistent SIJ assessment, numerous scoring systems have been proposed. We sought to systematically review articles that evaluated diagnostic accuracy and reliability of existing MRI-based SIJ scoring systems for the evaluation of spondyloarthropathy in children and adults, and assess their applicability to pediatric patients.

Increased fracture risk is a complication that occurs in the context of primary bone diseases such as osteogenesis imperfecta (OI). Despite being considered as the reference-standard, the use of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) to evaluate fragility fractures in OI has not been validated by prior systemic review. Identifying patients at greatest risk for bone fragility fractures and determining skeletal health markers that can monitor bone mass concerning response to bone-active treatments are important issues for clinicians. In this systematic review we assessed the clinical utility of DXA for evaluating osteoporotic bone in OI pediatric patients according to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force guidelines. Read More

Scoliosis is a deformity of the spine that affects 2-3% of the population. Currently, the reference standard for assessing scoliosis is the manual assignment of Cobb angles at the site of the curvature center using X-ray images. This process is time consuming and unreliable as it is affected by inter- and intra-observer variability. To overcome these inaccuracies, machine learning (ML) methods can be used to automate the Cobb angle measurement process. Read More

Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technologies hold potential for extensive applications in entertainment and simulation of healthcare procedures. These technologies offer solutions to various healthcare challenges including treatment planning, pain management, and surgical simulations, leading to more efficient and cost-effective patient care. Ongoing advancements have made VR and AR more accessible, particularly in medical education, procedural planning, and therapeutic interventions. This scoping review aims to examine the current state of knowledge regarding applications of VR and AR as a clinical tool, interventional aid, or alternative management approach in radiology for pediatric and adult populations to guide further research, inform evidence-based guidelines, and identify gaps in existing literature. This review followed the PICO (Patient, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome) framework, Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA), and Standards for Reporting of Diagnostic Accuracy (STARD) to assess the reporting quality of referenced literature. The initial search was conducted in MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library, supplemented with manual screening of reference lists. The search terms were adapted for specific databases (MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane Library) and focused on the intersection of VR and AR with diagnostic imaging in pediatric and adult populations. Out of 1,120 references, 14 primary studies were included in this systematic review, encompassing a total of 478 patients. 6/14 (42.9%) focused on children only and 8/14 (57.1%) on children and adults. The studies featured prospective (N=12) and retrospective (N=2) research designs mainly exploring VR and AR applications in preoperative planning, surgical navigation, intraoperative support, pain management, and patient education. The use of VR and AR in radiology in the selected primary papers showed promising results in improving patient experiences and surgical outcomes and indicated potential benefits in terms of patient satisfaction, reduced pain and anxiety, and enhanced surgical precision. This scoping review highlights potential clinical applications of VR and AR in radiology in pediatric and adult populations. However, more rigorous research is needed to assess cost-effectiveness of these technologies. Standardized reporting guidelines like STARD should be more consistently followed in future studies to enhance research reporting quality. Read More

Acoustic radiation force imaging (ARFI) is a type of quantitative sonoelastography (SE) that has been used to determine tissue stiffness in many disorders including liver fibrosis, breast cancer, thyroid nodules and more recently, cutaneous scleroderma. However the use of this technology for the assessment of skin lesions in the paediatric population has not yet been investigated. The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility of using ARFI SE to quantify the stiffness of morphea or localized scleroderma (LS) and hypertrophic burn scars (HTS), two skin conditions in which there is excessive deposition of collagenous and non-collagenous extracellular matrix causing fibrosis.

Whole-body (WB) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in children is of special interest because it is radiation free and can be used to evaluate systemic conditions, exploiting the advantage of the superior soft-tissue contrast provided by MR imaging. An important clinical application of whole-body MR imaging in children is its use for screening of oncologic conditions, tumor characterization, and staging. However, the list of non-oncologic applications of WB MRI has recently expanded to include the evaluation of numerous multisystemic conditions. This is a pictorial review of different oncologic applications of WB MRI including cancer predisposition syndromes, solid neoplasias and lymphomas, as well as of non-oncologic applications of WB MRI including chronic recurrent osteomyelitis (CRMO), enthesitis related arthritis (ERA), vascular malformations and benign tumors. In this review we discuss the advantages and challenges of conventional and functional MRI sequences including the use of diffusion weighted imaging (DWI), color-encoded DWI enhanced with iron supplement Ferumoxytol as blood pool contrast agent, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of the recently introduced WB positron emission tomography (PET)/MRI.

Scoliosis is a complex spine deformity with direct functional and cosmetic impacts on the individual. The reference standard for assessing scoliosis severity is the Cobb angle which is measured on radiographs by human specialists, carrying interobserver variability and inaccuracy of measurements. These limitations may result in lack of timely referral for management at a time the scoliotic deformity progression can be saved from surgery. We aimed to create a machine learning (ML) model for automatic calculation of Cobb angles on 3-foot standing spine radiographs of children and adolescents with clinical suspicion of scoliosis (AIS) across two clinical scenarios (idiopathic, group 1 and congenital scoliosis, group 2).
