OBJECTIVE The object of this study was to evaluate the potential of amplitude-coded colour Doppler sonography (aCDS) in paediatric neurosonography from the aspects of clinical value and impact. PATIENTS AND METHODS Sixty neonates, infants, and children underwent 72 aCDS investigations after conventional ultrasound (US) studies including conventional(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to describe features of cystic periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) in a large consecutive cohort study including long-term neurodevelopmental follow-up. METHODS We performed a retrospective single-centre cohort study including all preterm infants ≤35 weeks of gestational age with PVL diagnosed by ultrasound scans (US)(More)
BACKGROUND Failure to thrive and hematochezia in children may be alarm signs warranting endoscopy. In contrast, vascular malformations of the small intestine are uncommon in this age group. We report on a female toddler in whom various imaging techniques revealed an unusually large segmental vascular malformation of the ileum as the cause of the child's(More)
Three-dimensional ultrasound is an established diagnostic imaging technique in many specialties. However, in neonates, infants and children three-dimensional ultrasound still is underutilized, partially due to time constraints for post-processing and restricted availability, of devices as well as dedicated pediatric transducers. Also reimbursement issues(More)
Dzieci stanowią bardzo specyficzną grupę pacjentów, szczególnie jeśli chodzi o wrażliwość na promieniowanie – dziesięciokrotnie wyższą niż u dorosłych; ponadto znacznie dłuższa jest szacowana długość życia, co zwiększa ryzyko wystąpienia zmian nowotworowych indukowanych pro-mieniowaniem (1–7). Dlatego ochrona przed promieniowa-niem jonizującym jest w tej(More)
Three new consensus-based recommendations of the European Society of Paediatric Radiology Uroradiology Taskforce and the European Society of Urogenital Radiology Paediatric Working Group on paediatric uroradiology are presented. One deals with indications and technique for retrograde urethrography, one with imaging in the work-up for disorders of sexual(More)
Today several modalities for imaging the spine, the spinal canal and the spinal cord are available. Since children represent one of the most vulnerable patient groups, care has to be taken and imaging assessment should start always with less invasive procedures. Thus, in neonates and infants ultrasound should be used as first line imaging procedure due to(More)
Paediatric and particularly neonatal neurosonography still remains a mainstay of imaging the neonatal brain. It can be performed at the bedside without any need for sedation or specific monitoring. There are a number of neurologic conditions that significantly influence morbidity and mortality in neonates and infants related to the brain and the spinal(More)
