Scaphoid fractures are well-recognized in adults where delayed diagnosis and treatment of displaced or rotated fragments can produce avascular necrosis and long-term morbidity. In children, scaphoid fractures are uncommon, particularly in the skeletally immature, with an estimated incidence of 11 per 100,000, and there is a relative paucity of published literature on its imaging characteristics and clinical prognosis. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate imaging findings, fracture locations, and the clinical outcomes of scaphoid fractures in pre-teen children. Read More

Anatomic changes during bone growth and skeletal maturation are under-studied and incompletely understood, partially attributed to the sparing use of ionizing radiation in children. Recently, a clinically-feasible UTE (ultra-short echo time) MRI technique has emerged, enabling the direct visualization of bone. Although validated in adults, its spatial resolution and reproducibility have not been fully investigated in children. Therefore, the purpose of this study is 1) to determine the feasibility of UTE MRI to quantify changes in vertebral porosity and disc hydration along the thoracolumbar spine and 2) to investigate inter-rater reproducibility.
