Primary treatment of prostate cancer using 1.5  T MR-linear accelerator
CONCLUSIONS: MR-Linacs expand the spectrum of radiotherapeutic options for prostate cancer. Increased precision can be reached with daily MRI-based target volume definition and plan adaption. Clinical studies are necessary to identify patient groups who would benefit most from radiotherapy on a MR-Linac.PMID:34297139 | DOI:10.1007/s00117-021-00882-8 (Source: Der Radiologe)

Accidental and nonaccidental trauma are still the leading cause of childhood death worldwide. It is assumed that about 20% of TBI in children under 2 years of age are nonaccidentally caused. In all cases, nonaccidental TBI is caused by the violent impact on the brain and spinal cord by the massive shaking of the child held by the upper arms or body. This can lead to a rupture of blood vessels, especially bridge veins, as well as axonal shear injuries to the nerv...

Whiplash injury of the cervical spine
Radiologe. 2021 Jul 9. doi: 10.1007/s00117-021-00877-5. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTWhiplash injury is a common trauma of the cervical spine which usually occurs during motor vehicle accidents, especially involving rear-end collisions. The trauma typically results from a sudden biphasic movement of the head and cervical spine (reclination followed by inclination), which may cause an injury of bony, muscular and ligamentous elements. The most common symptoms of whiplash injury are pain, stiffness and tenderness of the neck, which occur with a latency of several hours and may become chronic in some patients. The imaging st...

Neurosurgical treatment of cervical spine injuries
CONCLUSION: Cervical spine injuries should be treated in a trauma centre with extensive expertise in spine surgery. The immobilisation and gentle transportation is important already at the scene of the accident. Nowadays, there are excellent surgical options and strategies available as well as excellent intensive care therapy. These possibilities lead to rapid and good stabilisation of cervical spine injuries and the posttraumatic morbidity and mortality can be reduced significantly especially in elderly patients.PMID:34244812 | DOI:10.1007/s00117-021-00881-9 (Source: Der Radiologe)

They make up about 20% of all skull fractures and are mainly caused by high-velocity blunt trauma and falls from high heights. Depending on their precise location, they can be divided into frontobasal, laterobasal and frontolateral fractures. Possible clinical signs are the presence of cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea or otorrhea, periorbital ecchymosis (raccoon eyes), retroauricular ecchymosis (battle sign) and cranial nerve injuries.

Financing perspectives for multiparametric magnetic resonance prostatography
CONCLUSIONS: Due to the nature of the system, the presented evidence and quality assurance, as well as the development of special contracts, have inevitably been transferred to radiology and the unified work of their associations. The imaging modality prostatography shows the advancement of radiological methods for dedicated multiparametric organ diagnostics.PMID:34213621 | DOI:10.1007/s00117-021-00867-7 (Source: Der Radiologe)

PI-RADS  2.1 and structured reporting of magnetic resonance imaging of the prostate
Radiologe. 2021 Jul 2. doi: 10.1007/s00117-021-00868-6. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTCLINICAL/METHODOLOGICAL ISSUE: The detection of clinically significant prostate cancers while simultaneously avoiding over-diagnosing tumors with low malignant potential is a challenge in clinical practice.STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS: Multiparametric prostate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in accordance with the Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS) guidelines is accepted as standard-of-care with both urologists and radiologists.METHODOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS: The PI-RADS guidelines have been updated to version 2.1, includi...

Clinical aspects in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer
CONCLUSIONS: Modern imaging, especially mpMRI and PSMA-PET/CT, has added substantial benefits in modern diagnosis and treatment of primary PCA. Moreover, multiparametric ultrasound is also a promising addition to the radiological armamentarium in the management of primary PCA.PMID:34213623 | DOI:10.1007/s00117-021-00869-5 (Source: Der Radiologe)

Guideline adherence and quality assurance in radiological diagnostics in cases of suspected child abuse in Germany
Radiologe. 2021 Jul 2. doi: 10.1007/s00117-021-00872-w. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Diagnostic imaging plays a key role in the evaluation of non-accidental consequences of injuries in childhood. Fractures are the second most common consequence of child abuse, after skin lesions such as abrasions or bleeding. With the evidence of radiological criteria, non-accidental fractures can be differentiated from accidental fractures. Special types of fractures such as the classic metaphyseal lesion can only be differentiated if the image quality is high.AIM: The goal of this prospective study was to assess adherence to...
