Perinatal post mortem ultrasound (PMUS): a practical approach.

Insights Imaging 2019 Mar 18;10(1):35. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust, London, WC1N 3JH, UK.

Declining rates of consent for standard perinatal autopsy has led to a rise in interest for postmortem imaging as an alternative, non-invasive method for investigation of childhood and perinatal deaths. Whilst much interest has focussed on cross-sectional techniques such as postmortem CT (PMCT) or MRI (PMMR), other modalities including postmortem ultrasound (PMUS) have been shown to have reasonable diagnostic accuracy rates, with the added benefit of being more readily accessible and affordable. There is little published information or formal guidance available on preparation for postmortem perinatal ultrasound, views to be obtained and differentiating normal postmortem change from potential abnormalities.

Multimodality imaging of indolent B cell lymphoma from diagnosis to transformation: what every radiologist should know.

Insights Imaging 2019 Feb 22;10(1):25. Epub 2019 Feb 22.

Department of Imaging, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, 450 Brookline Avenue, Boston, MA, 02215, USA.

Indolent B cell lymphomas are a group of lymphoid malignancies characterized by their potential to undergo histologic transformation to aggressive lymphomas. While different subtypes of indolent B cell lymphomas demonstrate specific clinical and imaging features, histologic transformation can be suspected on cross-sectional imaging when disproportionate lymph node enlargement or new focal lesions in extranodal organs are seen. On PET/CT, transformed indolent lymphoma may show new or increased nodal FDG avidity or new FDG-avid lesions in different organs. Read More

Abdominal applications of ultrasound fusion imaging technique: liver, kidney, and pancreas.

Authors:

Insights Imaging 2019 Jan 28;10(1). Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Fusion imaging allows exploitation of the strengths of all imaging modalities simultaneously, eliminating or minimizing the weaknesses of every single modality. Ultrasound (US) fusion imaging provides benefits in real time from both the dynamic information and spatial resolution of the normal US and the high-contrast resolution and wider field of view of the other imaging methods. US fusion imaging can also be associated with the use of different ultrasound techniques such as color Doppler US, elastography, and contrast-enhanced US (CEUS), for better localization and characterization of lesions.

Ultra-high-resolution subtraction CT angiography in the follow-up of treated intracranial aneurysms.

Insights Imaging 2019 Jan 28;10(1). Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Department of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, Radboud University Medical Center, Geert Grooteplein 10, P/O Box 9101, 6500 HB, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

In subtraction CT angiography (CTA), a non-contrast CT acquisition is subtracted from a contrast-enhanced CTA acquisition. Subtraction CTA can be applied in the detection, classification, and follow-up of intracranial aneurysms and is advantageous over conventional angiography because of its non-invasive nature, shorter examination time, and lower costs. Recently, an ultra-high-resolution CT scanner has been introduced in clinical practice offering an in-plane spatial resolution of up to 0. Read More
