Pulmonary interstitial glycogenosis (PIG) is a rare pediatric interstitial lung disease. We report a case of a term boy presenting with tachypnea at birth requiring supplemental oxygen. Chest radiographs followed by high-resolution CT (HRCT) demonstrated hyperinflation and diffuse interstitial markings interspersed with multiple cystic spaces. An open lung(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this prospective study was to determine the frequency of adverse events associated with supplemented and unsupplemented chloral hydrate sedation in a select group of children undergoing CT or MR imaging using the revised American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) monitoring and management guidelines for pediatric sedation. The AAP(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the role of sonography in the diagnosis and management of palpable solid breast masses in adolescents and to correlate the sonographic findings with the histopathologic findings and clinical outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective study was conducted with the breast sonograms of 20 adolescent girls(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether the size of palpable solid breast masses in adolescents at initial sonography and their growth at follow-up sonography could be used to decide between conservative management and tissue biopsy. METHODS This retrospective study included 37 adolescent female patients with 45 palpable benign-appearing solid breast masses on(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this series is to describe findings seen on abdominal sonography in neonates with erosion into the liver by umbilical vein catheters (UVCs). METHODS Four neonates with erosion of the UVC into hepatic parenchyma within a 2-year period were identified. A retrospective case analysis was performed to determine the symptoms and(More)
The puborectalis muscle sling was evaluated with MRI in 10 pediatric patients who had rectal pull-through surgery for anorectal anomalies. MRI (1.5T) demonstrated the puborectalis muscle equally or better than CT in 5 patients who had both CT and MRI. The amount of puborectalis muscle mass and the location of the pulled-through intestine in relation to the(More)
Peliosis hepatis is a rare entity that can affect children and cause fatal hepatic hemorrhage or hepatic failure. Radiographic findings are nonspecific and can resemble other hepatic pathologies such as cysts, abscesses, metastases, and hemangiomatosis. Peliosis hepatis can resolve spontaneously or by withdrawal of inciting medications. Certain cases may(More)
Diagnosing obstructive uropathy by renal resistive indices calculated from duplex Doppler sonographic waveforms has been supported as well as challenged in the radiology literature relating to adults. Despite reports of normally higher resistive indices in children as compared to adults, two studies have documented high sensitivity and specificity of renal(More)
