This is a case report of a 15-year-old boy with chronic intermittent left shoulder pain due to an undiagnosed lesser tuberosity avulsion fracture, an associated biceps pulley injury and intra-articular dislocation of the long head of the biceps tendon. Also presented is a companion case of a 13-year-old boy with an acute lesser tuberosity avulsion with an intact biceps pulley. Avulsion fractures of the lesser tuberosity are rare injuries which can be difficult to diagnose clinically and on radiographs. Even more rare are reported cases of biceps pulley injuries in children and adolescents with lesser tuberosity avulsions. Utilizing the imaging from these two cases we review lesser tuberosity avulsions in children and also review the complex anatomy of the biceps pulley, which due to its close association with the lesser tuberosity, may be involved in these injuries. These cases emphasize the importance of MR in the diagnosis and treatment planning of lesser tuberosity avulsions. Read More

This education exhibit will provide a general review of radiographic techniques of the foot followed by a section identifying clinical and radiographic findings for specific foot deformities. Learning objectives for this exhibit include: (a) recognize the imaging needed for specific foot deformities, (b) measure critical angles from different radiographic views and interpret their meanings, (c) recognize radiographic identifying features for specific foot deformities, (d) identify what views are necessary when trying to differentiate between similar deformities, and (e) interpret post-operative/post-procedural imaging and recognize possible complications.

Whole body (WB) MRI is a valuable method for surveying the overall burden of systemic diseases such as juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), directing further diagnostic and treatment approaches. Consensus-driven development and validation of a standardized WB-MRI scoring system for JIA has important clinical utility in timely detection and monitoring of disease activity, and serves as an outcome measure in research. We describe our experience utilizing a formal consensus approach amongst imaging and/or clinical JIA experts towards developing a novel WB MRI scoring system to assess disease activity in JIA.

Clinical assessment of the Sacroiliac Joint (SIJ) is limited due to the location and anatomy of the joint.<b> </b>Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a sensitive, non- invasive tool in detecting early SIJ inflammatory changes and structural damage in Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). The quantification of interval change of pediatric SIJs using MRI based scoring methods will serve as an important objective outcome measure for the assessment of disease severity and treatment effectiveness in JIA.
