Background There is growing literature on the use of #pediatricultrasound (US) for evaluation of Crohn disease in adults, but few studies have been conducted on children. Several studies demonstrated high accuracy of US in the diagnosis of #Crohndisease. Using US as the primary screening imaging modality for Crohn disease can reduce health care costs, the […]
Background There is an increased risk associated with procedural sedation of infants younger than 6 months of age. The use of propofol for radiologic imaging of this age group is not well studied. Objective We hypothesize that adverse events are higher in the infant population receiving propofol for radiologic imaging. Materials and methods A retrospective chart […]
Defining the ultrasound longitudinal natural history of newly diagnosed pediatric small bowel Crohn disease
Background Little is known about changes in the #pediatricimaging appearances of the bowel and mesentery over time in either pediatric or adult patients with newly diagnosed small bowel Crohn disease treated with anti-tumor necrosis factor-alpha (anti-TNF-α) therapy. Objective To define how bowel ultrasound findings change over time and correlate with laboratory inflammatory markers in children […]
Purpose To determine diagnostic reference ranges on the basis of the size of a pediatric patient’s chest and to develop a method to estimate computed tomographic (CT) scanner–specific mean size-specific dose estimates SSDEs as a function of patient size and the radiation output of each CT scanner at a site. Materials and Methods The institutional […]
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the workhorse modality in pediatric neuroimaging because it provides excellent soft-tissue contrast without ionizing radiation.
CASE SUMMARY A 1-month-old female presented to our institution with a history of poor feeding, diarrhea, and a 2-lb weight loss. Upon evaluation, the patient was determined to have severe dehydration, acute renal failure, and metabolic acidosis. Cornelia De Lange syndrome was initially suspected by the geneticists due to dysmorphic facial features, including prominent eyebrows, […]
