Compression syndrome is the entrapment of any vessel or luminal structure by another vessel. These are often due to an underlying anatomic anomaly or variant. Though seen in young and healthy individuals, compression syndromes may have severe clinical outcomes including arterial ischemia, embolism, early satiety, hypertension, weight loss, dyspnea, venous stasis and thrombosis. The purpose of this educational exhibit is to familiarize radiologists and clinicians alike with the clinical presentation, best diagnostic imaging modalities and characteristic imaging features for the diagnosis of compression syndromes in the pediatric population.

1) To understand penetrating injury in pediatric patients and how the child’s body habitus is more susceptible to multi organ injury than that of adult. 2) To explain the role of computed tomography (CT) in a pediatric penetrating trauma triage algorithm. 3) To discuss optimization of CT protocols in pediatric trauma patients based on the mechanism of injury with attention to radiation dose reduction. 4) To review the imaging findings in penetrating injuries to the chest, abdomen and pelvis.

There is increasing interest in the use of ultrasonography to characterize pediatric ocular abnormalities. Normal orbital anatomy and many abnormal conditions affecting the orbit are well seen with orbital ultrasonography. Some entities display distinct, characteristic ultrasonographic features which may serve to confirm the clinical diagnosis. This educational exhibit demonstrates the value of orbital ultrasonography in evaluating normal orbital anatomy and the various pathologic conditions that may affect the eye in children. Read More

Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) affects approximately 100,000 individuals in the US. Despite medical advances, morbidity is high and their lifespan remains shortened. Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is the only curative treatment to date and as outcomes improve its use has increased. Complications of HSCT are frequent and some literature suggests there is a higher incidence in the SCD population. In addition, preexisting vasculopathy in this population may contribute to an increased incidence of post-transplant CNS toxicity. We present the imaging findings of HCST complications in children with SCD. Read More

The purpose of this exhibit is to describe 3D ultrasonography (3DUS) of the head in neonates. Traditionally, 2D ultrasonography has been used for evaluation of the neonatal brain. 3DUS is a more recent advanced technique in which a volume of tissue is scanned in a single acquisition, and the 3D data set is subsequently manipulated using specialized software. This exhibit reviews current literature relating to 3DUS, demonstrates basic technical aspects of 3DUS, describes 3DUS of normal brain, and illustrates 3DUS features of acquired and congenital neonatal brain disorders.
