OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the prognostic accuracy of a new MRI-based relative lung-to-head ratio in regard to neonatal survival and need for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in the care of fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) and to compare it with the previously described sonographic relative lung-to-head(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively assess the reliability of magnetic resonance (MR) image volume measurement in fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) and the reliability and validity of measurements in in vitro lung models. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was approved by the ethics committee, and informed consent was obtained. MR fetal lung volume(More)
PURPOSE To retrospectively evaluate the accuracy of the absolute fetal lung volume (FLV) measured at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and seven formulas for calculating relative FLV to predict neonatal survival and the need for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). MATERIALS AND METHODS This(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to use logistic regression analysis of prenatal MRI fetal lung volume measurements to calculate mortality and the need for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) therapy among fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). SUBJECTS AND METHODS The fetal lung volume measurements of 65 fetuses with CDH were(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively assess the results of logistic regression analysis that were based on magnetic resonance (MR) image fetal lung volume (FLV) measurements to predict survival and the corresponding need for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) therapy in fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) before and after 30 weeks gestation.

PURPOSE To assess whether chronic lung disease (CLD) in surviving infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is associated with lung hypoplasia on the basis of the results of antenatal observed-to-expected fetal lung volume (FLV) ratio measurement at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study received approval from the(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the ultrasound (US) based lung-to-head ratio (LHR) and first results of fetal lung volume (FLV) determination in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), there is no reliable prenatal parameter for the clinical course and outcome of fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), in particular for the need of extracorporeal membrane(More)
PURPOSE Correlation of duplex ultrasonographic grading of unilateral internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis and ICA blood volume flow (BVF) quantification. MATERIALS AND METHODS Using a 2D cine phase-contrast MR technique, 62 patients with unilateral ICA stenosis at the level of the bifurcation between 50 % and 98 % and 20 age-matched normal controls were(More)
Foreign body ingestion is a common pediatric emergency and if the foreign body cannot be detected radiologically or endoscopically further investigations are required. In this article the case of a radiolucent, ingested foreign body (mini-candleholder of a birthday cake) is presented. The foreign body could not initially be identified via X-ray and(More)
