OBJECTIVE We compared barium studies of the small bowel with multidetector CT (MDCT) in the evaluation of the small bowel during the initial presentation of inflammatory bowel disease in a pediatric population. SUBJECTS AND METHODS This was a prospective study. Eighteen children undergoing workup for inflammatory bowel disease underwent MDCT, colonoscopy,(More)
UNLABELLED Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a predominantly adult-diagnosed disorder. Knowledge regarding the epidemiology, phenotype, and metabolic risk factors, during adolescence is limited. We sought to determine the prevalence, phenotype, and predictors of NAFLD in 1170 community-based adolescents in the Western Australian Pregnancy Cohort(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to establish the nature and stability of the strength-size relationship for the knee flexors and extensors across a 6-month period of childhood growth. METHODS Nineteen typically developing children aged 5-11 years underwent lower limb magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and dynamometry strength assessments on 2(More)
AIM To determine if a nasojejunal tube (NJT) is required for optimal examination of enteroclysis and if patients can be examined only in the supine position. METHODS Data were collected from all patients undergoing small bowel (SB) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination over a 32-mo period. Patients either underwent a magnetic resonance (MR)(More)
Copy Number Variations (CNVs) comprising the distal 1q region 1q43-q44 are associated with neurological impairments, structural brain disorder, and intellectual disability. Here, we report an extremely rare, de novo case of a 1q43-q44 deletion with an adjacent duplication, associated with severe seizures, microcephaly, agenesis of the corpus callosum, and(More)
AIM To determine whether magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be used to categorize small bowel Crohn's disease (SB CD) into groups that correlate with response to medical therapy and surgical pathology. METHODS Data was collected from all patients with MRI evidence of SB CD without significant colonic disease over a 32-mo period. Two radiologists,(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the muscle size-strength relationship of the knee flexors and extensors in children with spastic cerebral palsy (CP) in relation to typically developing children (TD). METHODS Eighteen children with spastic Diplegia, Gross Motor Function Classification System I-III (mean 7 y 5 mo SD 1 y 7 mo) and 19 TD children (mean 7 y 6 mo SD 1 y(More)
PURPOSE Investigate the combination effects of strength training and Botulinum Toxin Type-A (BoNT-A) on muscle strength and morphology in children with Cerebral Palsy (CP). METHODS Fifteen children receiving BoNT-A, classified as Spastic Diplegic CP, GMFCS I-II, and aged 5-12 years were recruited for this study. Randomly allocated to 10 weeks of strength(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has profoundly changed and improved the investigation of abdominal and pelvic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in pediatrics. Using an imaging modality without ionizing radiation is of particular advantage because the pediatric IBD population is young and often requires repeat evaluation. MRI of the pelvis has become the(More)
