Nutrition is an important outcome predictor in oncology patients including treatment response, physical disability, quality of life, and overall survival. Sarcopenia (loss of skeletal muscle mass and function) is a demonstrated marker of nutritional status in adults, but data are more limited in children. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether total psoas muscle area (tPMA) measured at the time of cancer diagnosis predicts overall survival (OS), disease free survival (DFS), or number ...

INTRODUCTION Acoustic radiation force imaging (ARFI) is a recently developed form of ultrasound imaging that allows in-vivo measurement of tissue stiffness. This technology could be useful at predicting bladder compliance in children. We hypothesize that tissue stiffness, as measured by ARFI, correlates with abnormal bladder compliance and capacity in patients with bladder dysfunction. METHODS Patients who presented for cystometrography (CMG) underwent ARFI of the bladder wall. Nine bladder wall...

BACKGROUND Hepatoblastoma is the most common primary pediatric liver malignancy. Indocyanine green (ICG) has been described as an adjunct to resection in small series. Its utility remains undefined in larger cohorts. METHODS Records for 29 patients diagnosed with hepatoblastoma who received ICG prior to surgical resection from 2017 to 2020 at a single institution were retrospectively reviewed. The primary outcome was correlation between intraoperative ICG-avidity and histologic presence of hepat...

INTRODUCTION Diffuse liver lesions in an infant have a differential diagnosis including infantile hemangioma (IH), which is common in the first year of life, and neuroblastoma (NBL) which presents at a median age of 18 months. RESULTS We describe the case of a 4-month-old girl with a known superficial/deep IH who presented with new axillary nodules and hepatosplenomegaly, initially suspected to reflect IH but later determined to be widely metastatic NBL. CONCLUSION Hepatic IH and metastatic NBL ...

BACKGROUND Salter-Harris 2 fractures of the distal radius are common in pediatrics. Children with these fractures have a theoretical risk of developing a physeal bridge with subsequent growth disturbance. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical utility and economic impact of obtaining routine delayed radiographs in asymptomatic patients with uncomplicated Salter-Harris 2 fractures of the distal radius. MATERIALS AND METHODS Radiology records were searched retrospectiv...

Ineffective communication is commonly listed as a root cause of sentinel events and other adverse events in the health care setting. The psychological safety of all employees is considered to be a factor that promotes effective communication. Recently, leaders of a radiology department learned that many of the frontline staff did not feel they were being treated respectfully by radiologists during routine interactions. On a baseline survey, only 48% of technologists, reading room assistants, and...

Summary Background Outcomes for children and adults with advanced soft tissue sarcoma are poor with traditional therapy. We investigated whether the addition of pazopanib to preoperative chemoradiotherapy would improve pathological near complete response rate compared with chemoradiotherapy alone. Methods In this joint Children's Oncology Group and NRG Oncology multicentre, randomised, open-label, phase 2 trial, we enrolled eligible adults (aged ≥18 years) and children (aged between 2 and 16 yea...

PURPOSE The key landmark for tip position of a central venous catheter (CVC) is the SVC-RA junction. In adults, localization of the SVC-RA junction may be assessed as a function of vertebral body units (VBU) below the carina during CVC placement. We investigated the relationship between the SVC-RA junction and the carina in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS 584 CT scans of 0-18 years were analyzed. The carina was marked automatically by software while the SVC-RA junction and vertebrae were marked ...
