The objective of this exhibit is to illustrate common fetal central nervous system (CNS) abnormalities using high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging at 3.0 Tesla. Read More

The purpose of this exhibit is to demonstrate the characteristic sonographic appearance of benign masses in the pediatric population in order to address the wide variation in management of palpable, hypoechoic, circumscribed masses seen on ultrasound. Currently, management includes fine needle aspiration/core needle biopsy, excision, imaging follow-up, and reassurance. This exhibit proposes guidelines for management of palpable pediatric breast masses with ultrasound findings most suggestive of fibroadenomas. Read More

Kagami-Ogata syndrome (KOS) is a rare and potentially underdiagnosed imprinting disorder caused by paternal uniparental disomy for chromosome 14 or microdeletions and epimutations involving differentially methylated regions (DMRs) at 14q32.2. Depending on phenotypic expression, KOS may mimic trisomy 18 and asphyxiating thoracic dysplasia. Therefore, awareness is essential for prenatal diagnosis. Coat hanger ribs as seen by x-rays have been reported as s pathognomonic sign but have not been reported prenatally. Herein we present images of the coat hanger ribs as seen by low-dose computerized tomography (CT) as well as detailed imaging of the multiple phenotypic features by ultrasound and MRI of KOS in two cases seen prenatally. Case 1: G1P0 singleton pregnancy had fetal echocardiogram at 25 weeks due to concern for congenital heart disease, thickened nuchal fold and thickened skin of the thoracic wall. The exam showed left superior vena cava draining to coronary sinus, dilated right atrium and right ventricle, total anomalous pulmonary venous return, and hydrops. Skin edema was redemonstrated by follow up US at 29 weeks. Fetal MRI and follow-up US at 32 weeks showed polyhydramnios, diffuse skin edema, prominent cheeks and frontal bossing by 3D US, mild shortening of the ulna and right clubfoot, and a bell-shaped thorax by MRI. Chromosomal microarray was positive for terminal deletion of 14q32.2, consistent with KOS. Coat hanger ribs were present on postnatal x-rays. The patient is G-tube and tracheostomy tube dependent, has global developmental delay, neuromuscular scoliosis, left hip subluxation, wrist contractures and planovalgus feet at the age of 2 ½ years. Case 2: G3P1, singleton pregnancy with negative non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT). US performed at 29 weeks showed polyhydramnios, clenched hands, and bell-shaped small thorax. Multimodality fetal imagin (US, MRI and CT) at 32 weeks showed a narrowed elongated thorax by US and MRI but ribs were poorly visualized. Additional anomalies included polyhydramnios, rhizomelic bone shortening, clenched hands, and prominent cheeks by 3D US. Low-dose CT showed coat hanger ribs. Postnatal x-rays confirmed coat hanger ribs and other abnormalities. Postnatal genetic testing showed paternal uniparental disomy for chromosome 14, consistent with KOS. The patient has restrictive lung disease due to hypoplastic thoracic cage, hypotonia, scoliosis, developmental delay, and umbilical hernia at 13 months. Read More

Accurate tumor measurement is essential in initial assessment of solid tumors. Furthermore, it is vital when evaluating treatment response. Change in tumor size determines whether a treatment course is effective, if treatment should be prolonged, or whether a more aggressive treatment or chemotherapy drug should be administered. Currently endorsed and widely used guidelines for tumor volume measurement include response evaluation criteria in solid tumors (RECIST), a one dimensional measure (cm) of target lesions which is not routinely the longest axis; World Health Organization (WHO), a 2 dimensional measure of the long and one short tumor axis (cm2) but is not a measure of volume; and Childrens Oncology Group (COG), a 3 dimensional ‘volume’ (cm3) measurement but does not account for shape of the tumor. Pediatric oncology patients are almost exclusively cared for in major academic or community hospital settings where modern CT and MR scanners routinely produce direct or reconstructed multiplanar images. Therefore an evolution of tumor measurement, to determine tumor volume, must be forthcoming. Read More
