Congenital tumors form a unique group among pediatric neoplasms. They are different from other tumor groups in this population not only due to the onset time but also to their histopathology, anatomic location, biologic behavior and prognosis. The development of fetal MRI allowed early diagnosis of these tumors. Three fetuses with congenital central nervous(More)
BACKGROUND Since 2003, very few publications have described brain examinations using neonatal MR-compatible incubator (INC). The authors present their first experience in these examinations, not limited to brain scans, with the use of an incubator equipped not only with head coil, but also with a coil designed for examinations of the spinal canal and spinal(More)
Leukemia is the most frequent malignancy in children (30-40%); acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) accounts for 85% of cases of this leukemia. Apart from bone marrow infiltration, MR imaging reveals other lesions in the bones of these children, that may be a complication of the disease or of its therapy and do not require referral to the oncologist unless(More)
AIM To assess the utility of sonographic examination in estimation of the incidence and character of pathological changes in different parts of the intestine and other abdominal organs in children with cystic fibrosis (CF). MATERIAL AND METHOD The study group consisted of 182 children (94 girls, 88 boys), aged from 2 months up to 22 yrs, with diagnosed(More)
INTRODUCTION Cleft lip and/or palate is the most common congenital craniofacial anomaly. Ultrasonography plays a key role in the early diagnosis of this anomaly and is completed by MRI. The purpose of this paper is to present and summarize the experience in diagnosis of cleft lip/palate by means of MRI. MATERIAL AND METHODS The material consists of 62(More)
BACKGROUND In neonatal brains diffusion restriction, which is not limited to the region of insult, but is also found in distant locations from it seems to be a frequent finding, called pre-Wallerian degeneration. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to describe these findings and to estimate the frequency of their occurrence with an attempt to(More)
BACKGROUND Gynecological examination and transvaginal ultrasound are difficult or impossible in girls and young women who have not started their sexual life. CT is not a method of choice in this age group because of the ionizing radiation and iodine-containing contrast media. MRI is chosen then. MATERIAL/METHODS Pelvic MRI was performed in 15 patients(More)
BACKGROUND It has been shown that MRI offers the possibility of more detailed assessment of fetal pathology than sonography. It is used not only to diagnose but also to follow up some prenatal diseases. It is a basis of in utero treatment and the tool of monitoring its efficacy The purpose of the study was to present the authors' experience with prenatal(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The aim of the study was to assess anatomical variants and abnormalities in cerebral arteries on magnetic resonance angiography in 67 children with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 67 children aged 9 months to 18 years (mean 6.6 years). Control group comprised 90 children aged 2-18 years(More)
Miliary brain metastases are very rarely described in the literature but if they are, they are quite obvious on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and enhance after intravenous administration of the contrast medium. The authors presented a case of miliary metastatic spread to the brain which was invisible on computed tomography and hardly visible on MRI, i.e.(More)
