[Trauma of the lumbar spine and the thoracolumbar junction].
Abstract CLINICAL/METHODICAL ISSUE: Patients who have experienced high energy trauma have a particularly high risk of suffering from fractures of the thoracic and lumbar spine. The detection of spinal injuries and the correct classification of fractures before surgery are not only absolute requirements for the implementation of appropriate surgical treatment but they are also decisive for the choice of surgical procedure. STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS: By the application of spiral computed tomography (CT) crucial additional information on the morphology of the fracture can be gained in order to estimate the f...

[Cervical spine trauma].
Abstract CLINICAL/METHODICAL ISSUE: In the emergency department 65 % of spinal injuries and 2-5 % of blunt force injuries involve the cervical spine. Of these injuries approximately 50 % involve C5 and/or C6 and 30 % involve C2. Older patients tend to have higher spinal injuries and younger patients tend to have lower injuries. The anatomical and development-related characteristics of the pediatric spine as well as degenerative and comorbid pathological changes of the spine in the elderly can make the radiological evaluation of spinal injuries difficult with respect to possible trauma s...

Abstract CLINICAL/METHODICAL ISSUE: Attempts at the early detection of lung cancer using imaging methods began as far back as the 1950s. STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS: Several studies attempted to demonstrate a reduction of lung cancer mortality by chest radiography screening but all were unsuccessful. METHODICAL INNOVATIONS: Even the first small screening studies using computed tomography (CT) could not demonstrate a reduction in lung cancer-specific mortality until in 2011 the results of the largest randomized controlled low-dose CT screening study in the USA (NLST) were published. The NLST results cou...

[Imaging signs in chest diagnostics].
Abstract Signs in chest imaging are defined as typical findings which can be easily recognized on x‑ray photographs or computed tomography (CT) scans of the chest. They are caused by different typical pathophysiological processes. Due to the association of a certain pathophysiological cause with a given sign, knowledge and use of these signs can allow the possible differential diagnoses to be narrowed down. If other imaging findings and clinical data are additionally taken into account, the diagnosis can be made with a high degree of confidence in many cases.

Reith W Abstract STANDARD PROCEDURE: As a rule, postoperative imaging is carried out after spinal interventions to document the exact position of the implant material. INFORMATION: Imaging is absolutely necessary when new clinical symptoms occur postoperatively. In this case a rebleeding or an incorrect implant position abutting a root or the spinal cord must be proven. In addition to these immediately occurring postoperative clinical symptoms, there are a number of complications that can occur several days, weeks or even months later. These include the failed back surgery syndrome, implant loosening or break...

CONCLUSIONS: The diagnostic CT service was basically rendered as relatively inexpensive. In addition to a better financial result, changing the current ICA to DRG shares might also mean a chance for real revenues. However, the attractiveness considerably depends on how the DRG shares are distributed to the different radiation disciplines of one institution.

[Stress fractures].
Abstract Bone stress injuries are due to repetitive mechanical overuse of the skeleton and occur as a result of microscopic lesions sustained when bone is subjected to repeated submaximal stress. Over time accumulation of such injuries can lead to bone failure and fractures. Stress-related bone injuries are relatively common among otherwise healthy persons who have recently started new or intensified forms of physical training activities. Stress injuries lead to typical findings on radiography, bone scintigraphy, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and need to be discriminated from other ...

[Diagnostics of acute pulmonary embolism : An update].
Abstract Pulmonary embolism is an acute and potentially life-threatening condition requiring a differentiated diagnostic algorithm. Assessment of the risk and clinical probability are of utmost importance in order to initiate early treatment or to reliably exclude a pulmonary embolism. Computed tomography of the pulmonary arteries (CTPA) has become the non-invasive gold standard for the diagnostic approach. Alternatively, scintigraphy can also be used. A negative CTPA excludes a pulmonary embolism with a high degree of probability. Furthermore, CTPA can supply additional information, such as estimation of the righ...

[Avoiding pitfalls in the diagnostics of bone neoplasms from pathologists point of view : Importance of reference pathology].
Abstract Bone tumors account for only approximately 1 % of the total number of malignant tumors in humans so that they are only rarely diagnosed and appropriate experience is difficult to acquire. Although the number of entities is limited there exist very different clinical and radiological images depending on the manifestation in the different regions of the skeleton. Bone tumors are also histologically structured very differently even within a particular entity. Prior to the histopathological diagnosis the location of the lesion within the entire skeleton and in relation to the tumor-bearing bone must be...

Abstract Historically, tumor-like lesions of bone were defined as non-neoplastic bone lesions. Today, however, some of them are considered real neoplasms. They are among the most frequent bone lesions. They usually grow slowly, but occasionally they grow rapidly. Many of them can be diagnosed by plain films alone; in others, CT and MRI yield additional features for a correct diagnosis. Some lesions do not need treatment; others should be resected, and some may even recur. Non-ossifying fibroma, juvenile and aneurysmal bone cysts, fibrous and osteofibrous dysplasia and eosinophilic granuloma are presented...

Abstract The shaken baby syndrome (SBS) or shaking trauma describes the occurrence of subdural hematoma, retinal hemorrhage and diffuse injury to the brain by vigorous shaking of an infant that has a poor prognosis. Rapid cranial acceleration and deceleration leads to tearing of bridging veins, retinal hemorrhages and diffuse brain injuries. In addition to clinical symptoms, such as irritability, feeding difficulties, somnolence, apathy, seizures, apnea and temperature regulation disorders, vomiting also occurs due to increased intracranial pressure. Milder forms of SBS often go undiagnosed and the number of unrep...

Abstract The focus of this review article is on child abuse and the radiographic pattern of X‑ray findings. The radiologist should be able to recognize typical injuries resulting from child abuse. In some cases the findings are highly specific for abuse and these include metaphyseal corner fractures of the long bones in children aged up to 24 months. In other cases the fractures are not specific but highly indicative of child abuse: rib fractures, for example can be associated with child abuse in more than 50 % of the cases; however, maltreatment is difficult to diagnose without taking the entire pattern ...
