Magnetic resonance imaging of fibropolycystic liver disease: the spectrum of ductal plate malformations.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2019 Mar 9. Epub 2019 Mar 9.

Radiology Unit, Department of Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services, IRCCS ISMETT (Mediterranean Institute for Transplantation and Advanced Specialized Therapies), Via Tricomi 5, 90127, Palermo, Italy.

Fibropolycystic liver diseases, also known as ductal plate malformations, are a group of associated congenital disorders resulting from abnormal development of the biliary ductal system. These disorders include congenital hepatic fibrosis, biliary hamartomas, polycystic liver disease, choledochal cysts and Caroli disease. Recently, it has been thought to include biliary atresia in this group of diseases, because ductal plate malformations could be implicated in the pathogenesis of this disease. Read More

Kidney cysts can manifest as focal disease (simple and complex kidney cysts), affect a whole kidney (eg, multicystic dysplastic kidney or cystic dysplasia), or manifest as bilateral cystic disease (eg, autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease [ARPKD] or autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease [ADPKD]). In children, as opposed to adults, a larger proportion of kidney cysts are due to genetic diseases (eg, HNF1B nephropathy, various ciliopathies, and tuberous sclerosis complex), and fewer patients have simple cysts or acquired cystic kidney disease. The purpose of this consensus statement is to provide clinical guidance on standardization of imaging tests to evaluate kidney cysts in children. Read More

Prenatal MR imaging features of Caroli syndrome in association with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease.

Radiol Case Rep 2019 Feb 26;14(2):265-268. Epub 2018 Nov 26.

Department of Radiology, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, 34th Street and Civic Center Boulevard, Philadelphia, PA 10104, USA.

Caroli syndrome, which is characterized by saccular and fusiform dilatation of the biliary ducts, is usually observed in association with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD). Although the diagnosis of ARPKD is generally easy to make in postnatal ultrasound, the diagnosis of Caroli syndrome may be challenging in prenatal ultrasound. Herein, we present a case of a 29-week fetus with ARPKD associated with Caroli syndrome in whom fetal magnetic resonance imaging was essential to identify the "central dot sign" within the dilated biliary ducts to confirm the prenatal diagnosis of Caroli syndrome and to increase our level of confidence in this diagnosis.

Magnetic resonance imaging biomarkers for chronic kidney disease: a position paper from the European Cooperation in Science and Technology Action PARENCHIMA.

Nephrol Dial Transplant 2018 Sep;33(suppl_2):ii4-ii14

Leeds Imaging Biomarkers Group, Department of Biomedical Imaging Sciences, University of Leeds, Leeds, UK.

Functional renal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has seen a number of recent advances, and techniques are now available that can generate quantitative imaging biomarkers with the potential to improve the management of kidney disease. Such biomarkers are sensitive to changes in renal blood flow, tissue perfusion, oxygenation and microstructure (including inflammation and fibrosis), processes that are important in a range of renal diseases including chronic kidney disease. However, several challenges remain to move these techniques towards clinical adoption, from technical validation through biological and clinical validation, to demonstration of cost-effectiveness and regulatory qualification.

Choledochal Malformations: Surgical Implications of Radiologic Findings.

AJR Am J Roentgenol 2018 Apr 15;210(4):748-760. Epub 2018 Feb 15.

1 Department of Radiology, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Jackson Memorial Hospital, 1611 NW 12th Ave, WW 279, Miami, FL 33136-1015.

Objective: The purpose of this article is to review the relevant pathophysiologic features, appearances, and surgical implications of choledochal malformations.

Conclusion: Choledochal malformations, colloquially called choledochal cysts, initially described in 1723, have been recategorized multiple times, the most widely accepted being the Todani classification based on morphologic features and location. Although readily applied to imaging findings, this classification system does not correlate well with clinical and surgical management. Read More

Automatic Segmentation of Kidneys using Deep Learning for Total Kidney Volume Quantification in Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease.

Sci Rep 2017 05 17;7(1):2049. Epub 2017 May 17.

Computer Aided Medical Procedures, Technische Universität München, Garching bei München, 85748, Germany.

Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is the most common inherited disorder of the kidneys. It is characterized by enlargement of the kidneys caused by progressive development of renal cysts, and thus assessment of total kidney volume (TKV) is crucial for studying disease progression in ADPKD. However, automatic segmentation of polycystic kidneys is a challenging task due to severe alteration in the morphology caused by non-uniform cyst formation and presence of adjacent liver cysts.

Pediatric choledochal cysts: diagnosis and current management.

Pediatr Surg Int 2017 Jun 31;33(6):637-650. Epub 2017 Mar 31.

The Urban Meyer III and Shelley Meyer Chair for Cancer Research, Department of Surgery, Wexner Medical Center, Ohio State University, 395 W. 12th Ave., Suite 670, Columbus, OH, USA.

Choledochal cysts are rare congenital disorders first described by Vater and Ezler in 1723. Their exact etiology remains incompletely understood; however, an anomalous pancreaticobiliary union (APBDU) and subsequent reflux of biliary contents into the biliary tree are thought to play a role. Accordingly, APBDU-associated choledochal cyst patients are significantly more likely to have evidence of hepatitis, cholangitis or pancreatitis and pathologically confirmed inflammation. Read More

Caroli's disease misdiagnosed as intraductal papillary neoplasm of the bile duct.

Clin Mol Hepatol 2015 Jun 26;21(2):175-9. Epub 2015 Jun 26.

Department of Internal Medicine, Korea University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Caroli's disease is a rare autosomal-recessive disorder caused by malformation of the ductal plate during embryonic development. Although it is present at birth, Caroli's disease is typically not diagnosed until between the second and fourth decades of life, as it was in the present patient. Here we report a rare case of Caroli's disease limited to one liver segment, which was initially misdiagnosed as an intraductal papillary neoplasm of the bile duct. Read More

Feasibility and utility of re-treatment with (177)Lu-DOTATATE in GEP-NENs relapsed after treatment with (90)Y-DOTATOC.

Eur J Nucl Med Mol Imaging 2015 Dec 26;42(13):1955-63. Epub 2015 Jun 26.

Nuclear Medicine Unit, Istituto Scientifico Romagnolo per lo Studio e la Cura dei Tumori (IRST) IRCCS, Via Maroncelli 40, 47014, Meldola, FC, Italy.

Purpose: Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) is a valid therapy for grade 1/2 gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs). Although a median progression-free survival (PFS) of more than 20 months is frequently observed, the majority of patients relapse after 2 - 3 years. In the present study, we investigated the use of low dosage re-treatment with (177)Lu-DOTATATE (Lu-PRRT) in patients with GEP-NENs who relapsed after treatment with (90)Y-DOTATOC (Y-PRRT). Read More

Laboratory of Epidemiology and Neuroimaging, IRCCS Centro San Giovanni di Dio Fatebenefratelli, Brescia, Italy; Departments of Internal Medicine and Psychiatry, University Hospitals and University of Geneva, Geneve, Switzerland. Electronic address:

Introduction: Proposed diagnostic criteria (international working group and National Institute on Aging and Alzheimer's Association) for Alzheimer's disease (AD) include markers of amyloidosis (abnormal cerebrospinal fluid [CSF] amyloid beta [Aβ]42) and neurodegeneration (hippocampal atrophy, temporo-parietal hypometabolism on [18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET), and abnormal CSF tau). We aim to compare the accuracy of these biomarkers, individually and in combination, in predicting AD among mild cognitive impairment (MCI) patients.

Methods: In 73 MCI patients, followed to ascertain AD progression, markers were measured. Read More

A standardized [18F]-FDG-PET template for spatial normalization in statistical parametric mapping of dementia.

Neuroinformatics 2014 Oct;12(4):575-93

Institute of Molecular Bioimaging and Physiology, National Research Council, Segrate, MI, Italy,

[18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a widely used diagnostic tool that can detect and quantify pathophysiology, as assessed through changes in cerebral glucose metabolism. [18F]-FDG PET scans can be analyzed using voxel-based statistical methods such as Statistical Parametric Mapping (SPM) that provide statistical maps of brain abnormalities in single patients. In order to perform SPM, a "spatial normalization" of an individual's PET scan is required to match a reference PET template. Read More
