Congenital vertical talus (CVT) is a rare foot deformity that is sometimes difficult to differentiate from oblique talus (OT) by physical examination and foot radiography. The purpose of this study was to summarize our experience with US in evaluation of CVT and OT deformities. We identified all children (2005–2011) younger than 6 months who underwent(More)
Chest radiograph is the primary imaging modality for evaluation of chest pathology and computed tomography scan is typically performed when there is a need for better characterization of the pathology or for surgical planning. Ultrasound (US) is mainly used for the evaluation of pleural effusion. However, US can be used in the evaluation of other(More)
OBJECTIVE. Distal humeral epiphyseal separation is rare and often misdiagnosed. The purpose of this study was to summarize an experience with radiography and ultrasound of distal humeral epiphyseal separation. MATERIALS AND METHODS. The records of all children younger than 36 months with the diagnosis of distal humeral epiphyseal separation from 2006 to(More)
Digital methods are used for scoliosis imaging. Separate images of the thoracic and lumbar/sacral spine are acquired. These are then stitched into a single image. This process has some potential disadvantages. To assess anatomical errors in digitally stitched scoliosis films. Eighty-six scoliosis studies were evaluated for stitching errors. The incidence of(More)
Ear abnormalities in oculo-auricular-vertebral spectrum commonly present with varying degrees of external and middle ear atresias, usually in the expected locations of the temporal bone and associated soft tissues, without ectopia of the external auditory canal. We present the unique imaging of a 4-year-old girl with right hemifacial microsomia and ectopic(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the use of sonography as the primary imaging modality for congenital hypothyroidism (CH). MATERIALS AND METHODS From our regional registry, we reviewed the cases of patients for whom either sonography or (99m)Tc-pertechnetate scanning was performed for CH between 2003 and 2010. Ultrasound(More)
Pulmonary venous malformation is extremely rare. We present imaging and clinical findings of a 17-year-old male with multifocal subcutaneous venous malformations and multiple cystic lesions in the liver and spleen, suggestive of slow flow vascular malformation. In the right lung, chest radiography followed by chest CT demonstrated large tortuous pulmonary(More)
PURPOSE We hypothesized that computed tomography (CT) combined with portable polysomnography (PSG) might better visualize anatomic data related to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The present study evaluated the CT findings during OSA and assessed their associations with the PSG data and patient characteristics. PATIENTS AND METHODS We designed a(More)
This retrospective study evaluated the safety and feasibility of a new arterial femoral access closure device in neurointerventional procedures. The study includes all consecutive adult patients who underwent femoral arteriotomy closure with the MynxGrip™ closure device after Neurointerventional procedures performed between June and December 2012. All(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this article is to summarize our experience with the use of ultrasound for evaluation of costochondral cartilage deformity in patients presenting with an anterior chest wall mass. MATERIALS AND METHODS From 2007 to 2012, we identified all patients at our tertiary care children's hospital younger than 18 years old who underwent(More)
