OBJECTIVES To investigate the contribution of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to the diagnosis of fetal cystic lung lesions found on routine prenatal ultrasound (US). STUDY DESIGN Experienced radiologists retrospectively reviewed 34 fetal MRI studies performed in 20 fetuses (from 20 to 35 gestational weeks; including 14 repeat studies 10 weeks after the(More)
A sireniform infant presented with an uncommon osseous fusion of the lower limbs characterised by a fused femur, a partially fused tibia and sympus dipus with rudimentary digits and metatarsals. Associated abnormalities included sacral agenesis, a deformed pelvis, anorectal atresia, renal agenesis, cystic renal dysplasia, agenesis of the uterus and urinary(More)
We describe a neonate with VACTERL association and right-sided congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). Such coexistence is rare. The lack of symptoms during the early neonatal period, the absence of bowel loops herniated into the right thoracic cavity, and an unfinished surgery led to clinical and radiological diagnostic difficulties. Respiratory distress(More)
We reviewed the unenhanced computer tomography (CT) scans of 53 patients with surgically proven acute cholecystitis, where 27 patients presented with hyperdense gallbladder wall. To our knowledge, this sign was never reported before. Because mucosa is highly sensitive to ischemia, early mucosal necrosis and hemorrhage may result in CT-detectable high(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the optimal timing of surgery for recurrent intussusception. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed medical records of patients aged from 0 to 18 years old with diagnosis of intussusception in the Pediatric Department at Mackay Memorial Hospital between January 1995 and May 2010. RESULTS During the study period, there were 686(More)
A morphology based imaging review is presented of the characteristic skeletal deformities associated with acardius anceps in three acardiac twins. These fetuses demonstrated poorly developed skulls, limb reduction defects, and phocomelia of the upper limbs, as well as narrow thoracic cages with or without the complete development of ribs, clavicles,(More)
BACKGROUND Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is an innovative and noninvasive technique for evaluating the biliary tree and pancreatic duct in children. The aim of this study was to assess the usefulness of MRCP as a noninvasive method to evaluate the biliary system in children. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the records of patients(More)
The length of the ossified part of the long bones of the upper (humerus) and lower limb (femur) as well as the axial length (that is, height) of the vertebral body of L1 were measured on a plain supine radiograph in 347 newborn babies (228 males, 119 females) with the gestational age (GA) from 26 to 41 weeks. All were admitted to the neonatal intensive care(More)
