PURPOSE To plot normal fetal lung volume (FLV) obtained with fast spin-echo magnetic resonance (MR) images against gestational age; to investigate the correlation between lung growth and fetal presentation, sex, and ultrasonographic (US) biometric measurements; and to investigate its potential application in fetuses with thoracoabdominal malformations.

PURPOSE To assess the efficacy of percutaneous embolization with an alcoholic solution of zein in the treatment of aneurysmal bone cysts. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighteen patients with aneurysmal bone cysts were treated percutaneously with alcoholic zein. The cysts were in the lower limb (n = 7), upper limb (n = 5), pelvis (n = 3), cervical spine (n = 2),(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the accuracy of magnetic resonance (MR) cholangiopancreatography in the diagnosis of bile duct obstruction. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred twenty-six patients with clinically suspected bile duct obstruction underwent MR cholangiopancreatography with heavily T2-weighted fast spin-echo sequences. Reviewers were blinded to clinical and(More)
PURPOSE To determine the usefulness of magnetic resonance (MR) cholangiopancreatography in the diagnosis of pancreas divisum. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 310 patients, MR imaging was performed with heavily T2-weighted, two-dimensional, fast-spin-echo sequences. A body coil was used for 139 patients, and a torso multicoil and high-resolution imaging(More)
OBJECTIVES To report the efficacy of propranolol as first-line treatment of head and neck hemangiomas in children and to present an optimized protocol for treating hemangiomas. DESIGN Multi-institutional retrospective study. SETTING Two tertiary care referral pediatric centers. PATIENTS Thirty-nine children with head and neck infantile hemangiomas(More)
We describe a 46-month-old child presenting with developmental delay, mild facial dysmorphism, micropenis, strabismus and striking multiple cysts of the corpus callosum who was found to have a de novo interstitial 3.1 Mb 15q24.1q24.2 microdeletion using a 244 K microarray-based comparative genomic hybridization (array-CGH). The cystic lesions were located(More)
PURPOSE To describe the diagnostic features, appearance, and vascularization pattern of venous malformations (VMs) at Doppler ultrasonography (US). MATERIALS AND METHODS Between February 1991 and May 1997, 51 soft-tissue VMs were studied with Doppler US in patients between 1 day and 21 years of age (mean age, 9 years). These VMs were located in the(More)
The purpose of our study was to perform a prospective comparative analysis of three-dimensional (3D) steady-state free precession (SSFP) and two-dimensional (2D) fast spin-echo (FSE) imaging in the evaluation of 26 patients with suspected bile duct obstruction. SSFP and highly T2-weighted FSE sequences were obtained for each patient in multiple planes. Both(More)
More than 20 years after its introduction, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is now considered a useful complementary tool in the imaging work-up of fetal brain structural anomalies, but its real contribution in neuro-fetal imaging is still controversial. Our purpose is to present an overview of the most valuable indications of fetal cerebral MRI in current(More)
