Introduction

.
Dr. Ventureyra obtained his medical degree from the University of La Plata, Argentina, in 1970 and then completed a residency program in Neurosurgery at the University of Ottawa. He was the program’s first graduate in 1976. He subsequently completed fellowships in paediatric neurosurgery both in Canada and the United States and has actively participated in the International Society of Paediatric Neurosurgery (ISPN) and was appointed to the Executive Board in 1996. He currently serves as past President of the ISPN and is former Canadian Editor of Child’s Nervous System, the official journal of the ISPN.
Dr. Ventureyra joined the Faculty of Medicine and was appointed to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario in 1977. He was the Chief of the Division of Paediatric Neurosurgery from 1986 to 2011 and was responsible for the clinical and academic programs of that institution. Dr. Ventureyra has a voluminous publication and presentation record in the field of paediatric neurosurgery, with a focus on epilepsy surgery, craniosynostosis, tethered cord, vascular malformations, brain tumours, syringomyelia, hydrocephalus, and neuroendoscopy.He was a member of the ISPN Education Committee and was actively involved in International Teaching activities.

Fast-brain MRI in children is quick, without sedation, and radiation-free, but beware of limitations.

J Clin Neurosci 2013 Mar 21;20(3):400-5. Epub 2012 Dec 21.

Department of Diagnostic Imaging, Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Ottawa, Canada.

Fast-brain MRI is a promising technique for young children who require anesthesia for conventional MRI; however, poor contrast resolution and the use of one type of pulse sequence only has limitations. We aimed to review and document pitfalls of fast-brain MRI in non-sedated children. Fifty fast-brain MRI studies (Fast Imaging Employing sTeady State Acquistion [FIESTA] protocol; 1.5-Tesla Signa Excite HD, GE HealthCare, Milwaukee, WI, USA) performed between January 2008 and August 2010 in 30 non-sedated patients aged 1 day to 5 years of age (mean: 18 months) were reviewed retrospectively and compared to the most recent MRI or CT scan. The indications were: ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt insertion or revision or follow-up (20/50, 40%), postoperative follow-up (9/50, 18%), macrocephaly, ventriculomegaly or congenital malformation (15/50, 30%), complications of prematurity (6/50, 12%). The VP shunt position and size of fluid-filled structures were satisfactorily assessed in all patients. Undetected findings in 7/50 studies (14%) were: venous sinus thrombosis (one patient), subdural hematoma (three), failure to differentiate blood products (two), and limited evaluation of extra-axial collections (one). FIESTA fast-brain MRI provides satisfactory assessment of shunt position and the size of fluid-filled structures, but radiologists should be aware of limitations for depiction of venous sinus thrombosis, and bleeding. Modification of fast-brain protocols appears to be indicated.
