The use of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is growing exponentially, in part because of the excellent anatomic and pathologic detail provided by the modality and because of recent technologic advances that have led to faster acquisition times. Radiology residents now are introduced in their 1st year of training to the MR pulse sequences routinely used in(More)
The use of the adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction (ASIR) algorithm has been shown to reduce radiation doses in adults undergoing abdominal CT studies while preserving image quality. To our knowledge, no studies have been done to validate the use of ASIR in children. To retrospectively evaluate differences in radiation dose and image quality in(More)
We report on a 22-year-old male carrying a presumptive clinical diagnosis of Dubowitz-like phenotype who has been followed-up by cardiology for bicuspid aortic valve with ascending aorta and aortic root dilatation. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) confirmed these findings, along with an incidental finding of left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC).(More)
BACKGROUND Stress hormones have been hypothesized to contribute to the social patterning of cardiovascular disease but evidence of differences in hormone levels across social groups is scant. PURPOSE To examine the associations of socioeconomic and psychosocial factors with urinary levels of cortisol and catecholamines and determine whether these(More)
Captopril was first administered to hypertensive patients 7 years ago. The relatively high dosage employed and the severity of diseases in the patient population initially led to a high frequency of side effects. Subsequently, an increase in the time intervals for dose titration and the earlier addition of a diuretic have made it possible to reduce the(More)
In experimental models of pancreatic growth and recovery, changes in pancreatic size are assessed by euthanizing a large cohort of animals at varying time points and measuring organ mass. However, to ascertain this information in clinical practice, patients with pancreatic disorders routinely undergo non-invasive cross-sectional imaging of the pancreas(More)
Isolated fibrous gastric antral band in a neonate causing partial gastric obstruction and mimicking prepyloric antral web is not reported in the English literature, and we would like to report the first case. A premature neonate with feeding difficulties and bilious aspirate underwent upper gastrointestinal contrast examination. The upper gastrointestinal(More)
BACKGROUND While neuroendocrine (carcinoid) tumors are increasingly recognized in the adult population, they are often not suspected in children. PROCEDURE Retrospective review of all well-differentiated neuroendocrine (carcinoid) tumors was performed based on pathology reports from a quaternary pediatric medical center between January 2003 and June 2016.(More)
One hundred patients participated in the studies of cutaneous candidiasis and steroid-responsive dermatoses. Seventy patients with the former diagnosis were treated with either halcinonide-neomycin-amphotericin or hydrocortisone-iodochlorhydroxyquin ointment combinations on a double-blind parallel comparison basis. Similar results were obtained after both(More)
