BACKGROUND Increasing pediatric CT usage worldwide needs the optimization of CT protocol examination. Although there are previous published dose reference level (DRL) values, the local DRLs should be established to guide for clinical practice and monitor the CT radiation. PURPOSE To determine the multidetector CT (MDCT) radiation dose in children in three(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to determine the prevalence and anatomic distribution of pulmonary embolism (PE) in a group of consecutive pediatric patients with clinically suspected PE using MDCT pulmonary angiography (pulmonary CTA). MATERIALS AND METHODS We used our hospital information system to retrospectively identify all consecutive(More)
Kawasaki disease (KD), also known as acute febrile mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome, is self-limited vasculitis of an unknown etiology which typically affects smalland medium-sized arteries. Due to the non-specific symptoms and lacks of a specific laboratory test, the diagnosis is based on presence of fever at least 5 days concurrently with four of five(More)
An infected cephalhematoma is a rare condition in neonates. We report a case of an 18-day-old neonate who was diagnosed with an infected cephalhematoma caused by an extended spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli complicated with septicemia, meningitis, and skull osteomyelitis. He was successfully treated with meropenem and surgical(More)
Synovial sarcoma (SS) is the fourth most common type of soft tissue sarcoma, following malignant fibrous histiocytoma, liposarcoma, and rhabdomyosarcoma. It usually occurs in the extremities near the large joints of middle-aged patients. We describe a case of synovial sarcoma of the anterior abdominal wall (SSAW) in an adolescent girl and undertake a review(More)
OBJECTIVE Patterns of periosteal disruption are important factors in assessing the mechanism of injury of radiologically evident Salter-Harris (SH) fractures. The purpose of this study is to assess the frequency of posterior periosteal disruption on MRI in radiographically occult or subtle SH type II fractures of the distal femur and to evaluate associated(More)
BACKGROUND Carbapenem-resistant and susceptible Acinetobacter baumannii (CRAB and CSAB) have emerged as serious threats among critically ill neonates. We aimed to identify the risks and outcomes for CRAB and CSAB ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) compared with a control group. METHODS We performed a retrospective and case-case-control study in a(More)
The purpose of this article was to review the spectrum of common and rare malignant neoplasms arising in the epigastric region in children and to illustrate their characteristic computed tomography (CT) imaging features. Understanding the characteristic CT appearance of various malignant neoplasms, which can occur in the epigastric region in children, aids(More)
Background Cardiac and liver iron assessment using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is non-invasive and used as a preclinical "endpoint" in asymptomatic patients and for serial iron measurements in iron-overloaded patients. Purpose To compare iron measurements between hepatic and myocardial T2* and T2 at 1.5T and 3T MRI in normal and iron-overloaded(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare multidetector CT (MDCT) radiation doses between default settings and a revised dose reduction protocol and to determine whether the diagnostic confidence can be maintained with imaging quality made under the revised protocol in paediatric head, chest and abdominal CT studies. METHODS The study retrospectively reviewed head, chest,(More)
