Gray-scale and color/power Doppler ultrasound (US) are the first-line imaging modalities to evaluate the spleen, gallbladder and pancreas in children. The increasing use of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) as a reliable and safe method to evaluate liver lesions in the pediatric population promises potential for imaging other internal organs. Although CEUS applications of the spleen, gallbladder and pancreas have been well described in adults, they have not been fully explored in children. In ...

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) has emerged as a valuable modality for bowel imaging in adults and children. CEUS enables visualization of the perfusion of the bowel wall and of the associated mesentery in healthy and disease states. In addition, CEUS images can be used to make quantitative measurements of contrast kinetics, allowing for objective assessment of bowel wall enhancement. Bowel CEUS is commonly applied to evaluate inflammatory bowel disease and to monitor treatment response. It ...

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) is increasingly being used in children. One of the most common referrals for CEUS performance is characterization of indeterminate focal liver lesions and follow-up of known liver lesions. In this setting, CEUS is performed with intravenous administration of ultrasound contrast agents (UCAs). When injected into a vein, UCA microbubbles remain confined within the vascular network until they dissipate. Therefore, visualization of UCA within the tissues and lesio...

Pancreatitis is as common in children as it is in adults, though causes and accepted imaging strategies differ in children. In this narrative review we discuss the epidemiology of childhood pancreatitis and key imaging features for pediatric acute, acute recurrent, and chronic pancreatitis. We rely heavily on our collective experience in discussing advantages and disadvantages of different imaging modalities; practical tips for optimization of ultrasound, CT, and MRI with MRCP in children; and i...

Increasing volume and complexity of cases in academic radiology and the drive toward pediatric sub-specialization have threatened knowledge assimilation for radiologists. There is a clear need for a system that retrieves vetted information from the excess available on the internet. Partnered with an interdisciplinary team from the Graduate School of Education, the authors created the first comprehensive learning management system (LMS) for radiology, implemented in the reading room to augment im...

ABSTRACT Magnetic resonance enterography (MRE) is a well-established imaging technique that is commonly used for evaluating a variety of bowel diseases, most commonly inflammatory bowel disease which is increasing in prevalence. Inflammatory bowel disease is composed of 2 related, but distinct disease entities: Crohn disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis. In ulcerative colitis, inflammation is generally limited to the mucosa and invariably involves the rectum, and often the more proximal colon. CD...

BACKGROUND Fever without a focus is defined as a temperature of 38° C or higher as the single presenting symptom. After extensive investigation, a large percentage (12-67%) of cases remain undiagnosed. OBJECTIVE To assess the diagnostic value of whole-body magnetic resonance imaging (WB-MRI) in children with fever without a focus. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective study was performed to identify children who underwent WB-MRI for fever without a focus. Ninety-two children, 50 boys, with a mea...

The reported incidence of pediatric pancreatitis is increasing. Noninvasive imaging, including ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), play important roles in the diagnosis, staging, follow-up, and management of pancreatitis in children. In this position paper, generated by members of the Pancreas Committee of the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN) and the Abdominal Imaging Committee of The Society for Pe...
