[Skull and cervical spine fractures].
CONCLUSIONS: The imaging modality of choice in the acute setting is computed tomography (CT). Skull fractures can be differentiated into open and closed craniocerebral traumas and accompanying intracranial trauma sequelae must be recognized. In the case of petrous bone fractures, attention must always be paid to the middle and inner ear structures. In cervical spine fractures, decisive is whether the fracture is stable or unstable and whether there has been an accompanying injury to the myelon.

[Fracture classification-part  1 : Modern low-dose radiation imaging in pediatric traumatology].
CONCLUSIONS: In addition to conventional x‑rays, fracture sonography is becoming increasingly important for the detection of fractures in children. In the upper extremity, a sensitivity of 96% and specificity of 97% can be achieved for some fracture entities, e.g., at the distal forearm. Computed tomography is used restrictively but plays an important role in a few special indications for polytraumatized children and preoperative assessment, e.g., in the case of transitional fractures.

Emerging methods in radiology.
Abstract Imaging modalities have developed rapidly in recent decades. In addition to improved resolution as well as whole-body and faster image acquisition, the possibilities of functional and molecular examination of tissue pathophysiology have had a decisive influence on imaging diagnostics and provided ground-breaking knowledge. Many promising approaches are currently being pursued to increase the application area of devices and contrast media and to improve their sensitivity and quantitative informative value. These are complemented by new methods of data processing, multiparametric data analysis, and int...

Hybrid imaging of the abdomen and pelvis.
no OA Abstract Accurate imaging is crucial for lesion detection in abdominal organs, for the noninvasive characterization of focal and diffuse abnormalities, and for surgical planning. To accomplish these tasks, several imaging modalities such as multidetector computer tomography (MDCT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) are used for abdominal imaging, providing important morphological, functional or metabolic information. More recently, PET/MRI has been gaining attention due to the possibility of combining high-resolution imaging with metabolic imaging....

[Radiologic diagnosis of pathologic fractures].

The most common causes of pathologic fractures are cystic bone lesions, plasmocytoma or multiple myeloma, and the development of osseous metastases, which is increasing due to an aging general population and advances in cancer treatment. The differentiation of pathologic fractures from stress fractures, especially osteoporotic insufficiency fractures is crucial for correct treatment planning. OBJECTIVES: This review intends to explain the imaging chara...

Abstract BACKGROUND: The shoulder girdle is a chain of bones and joints which connect the upper extremity to the axial skeleton. The shoulder as a biomechanical unit has a remarkable range of motion and is therefore frequently prone to injuries of the three major joints (sternoclavicular joint, acromioclavicular joint, glenohumeral joint) and the bony elements (clavicle, scapula, humerus). Projection radiography is still the first imaging modality for injuries of the shoulder and usually sufficient for initial diagnosis and injury classification.

Solitary enchondromas-diagnosis and surveillance : Danish guidelines.
Abstract Enchondromas (EC) are frequent incidental findings on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) performed for the diagnosis of joint pathology, especially observed on MRI examinations of the knee and shoulder. Enchondroma has potential for malignant transformation to chondrosarcoma (CS), and it may be difficult to distinguish EC from low-malignant CS on the basis of imaging or histopathology studies. Therefore, EC is mostly followed up to monitor any growth and/or changes indicating aggressive tumor.There is no consensual evidence on when and how to follow up patients with EC with regard to potential malignant tra...

Abstract The number of patients waiting for a new organ has continuously decreased in recent years. Brain death confirmation plays an important role in the clinical routine concerning a possible organ transplantation. In many countries a strictly defined protocol prescribes the required neurological examination and ancillary test criteria. Therefore, many years of experience and expertise is absolutely necessary for neurologists and neuroradiologists. Pitfalls can sometimes be very challenging for the treating physicians.

State-of-the-art imaging for diagnosis of metastatic bone disease.
Abstract Metastatic bone disease (MBD) is common-it is detected in up to 65-75% of patients with breast or prostate cancer, in over 35% of patients with lung cancer; and almost all patients with symptomatic multiple myeloma have focal lesions or a diffuse bone marrow infiltration. Metastatic bone disease can cause a variety of symptoms and is often associated with a poorer prognosis, with high social and health-care costs. Population-based cohort studies confirm significantly increased health-care utilization costs in patients presenting with cancer with MBD compared with those without MBD. The prol...

Abstract Ultrasonography is free of ionizing radiation but during the examination it is accompanied by energy deposition in the tissue. Therefore, users should be familiar with the mechanisms of action and possible risks. Thermal and non-thermal (e.g. cavitation) effects are related to the intensity and sound pressure of ultrasound waves and are therefore also dependent on the ultrasound modality used, e.g., B‑mode, color Doppler and/or pulsed wave (pw) Doppler. With B‑mode ultrasound no dangerous thermal effects are to be expected. In embryos and foetuses as well as febrile patients caution should be exercise...

[New approaches to embolization of aneurysms (liquid embolic agents)].
Abstract Various materials are currently available for the endovascular treatment of aneurysms. The choice of material depends on the location and configuration of the aneurysm. To ensure optimal aneurysm treatment, the filling material must incorporate the aneurysm and isolate it from the parent vessel by forming an endothelial layer and neointima proliferation along the aneurysm neck. As a result, the aneurysm can be permanently isolated from the blood flow and the weakened vessel wall can be stabilized in the long term in order to prevent subsequent rupture. Bare metal coils are currently most commonly use...
