Background:Recent epidemiological results suggested an increase of cancer risk after receiving computed tomography (CT) scans in childhood or adolescence. Their interpretation is questioned due to the lack of information about the reasons for examination. Our objective was to estimate the cancer risk related to childhood CT scans, and examine how(More)
Although cholesteatoma was first described in 1683, its etiopathogeny remains unexplained. In children, there are two forms: acquired cholesteatoma, resembling the adult form, and congenital cholesteatoma. The acquired form has become less frequent in recent years, thanks to progress in the treatment of childhood otitic pathology. Diagnosis of congenital(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The availability of data relating to the biometry of the CC in children that are easy to use in daily practice is limited. We present a reference biometry of the CC in MR imaging in a large cohort of children. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cerebral MR imaging studies of children with normal examination findings were selected(More)
OBJECTIVE To define parameters that enable the objective diagnosis of anomalies of the position and/or size of the fetal mandible in utero. DESIGN Fetuses at 18-28 gestational weeks were examined by two- and three-dimensional ultrasound. The study included normal fetuses and fetuses with syndromes associated with known mandible pathology: Pierre Robin(More)
BACKGROUND Numerous complications have been described following cochlear implantation. Most of them are post-operative and benign, but some are intra-operative and can be more difficult to manage. METHODS Case report of a pediatric case of misplaced cochlear electrode in the carotid canal and literature review. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS Post-operative(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the accuracy of voiding urosonography (VUS) compared to X-ray voiding cystoureterography (VCUG) for the detection and grading of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) by standardised reading of digital clips obtained from VUS and digital images from VCUG. MATERIALS AND METHODS Approval by the ethics committee was obtained, and written, informed(More)
The three main categories of limb emergencies are trauma, infection and the painful hip. Conventional radiography is used as the initial screening imaging modality that can sometimes be complemented with sonography. Computed tomography and MRI are rarely needed. Familiarity with conditions specific to the pediatric population is essential to the diagnosis(More)
In this retrospective study twelve histologically confirmed cases of spinal chordoma have been reviewed. Plain radiographs were performed in all cases, and CT scans in 11 patients. Four patients had post-myelography CT. Five patients were explored by MRI, and two had a post-DOTA-gadolinium MR study. Ten patients underwent spinal arteriography. Cervical(More)
PURPOSE Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been successfully used in the determination of the adequacy of the surgical reduction of congenitally dislocated hips in children. We present the results of a prospective series of patients treated conservatively. MRI was performed in all hips after positioning was deemed adequate on radiographs after spica cast(More)
