Diffusion weighted imaging in differentiating malignant and benign neuroblastic tumors
Conclusion Our study stands out as the most comprehensive study with larger sample size on this topic. Moreover, we are able to suggest a cut-off value which can discriminate neuroblastoma from ganglioneuroblastoma and ganglioneuroma. We believe that ADC will evolve to an objective, quantitative measurement in discrimination among malignant and benign neuroblastic tumors. (Source: Japanese Journal of Radiology)

Persistent truncus arteriosus on dual source CT
Abstract Persistent truncus arteriosus is a rare congenital cardiac disease with variable presentation. The exact preoperative diagnosis and delineation of anatomy are very important because the optimal timing and procedure for truncus arteriosus repair are decided on the basis of the morphological characteristics. Moreover, the presence of associated anomalies influences the surgical outcome and mortality in these patients. Dual-source computed tomographic evaluation with three-dimensional post-processing is highly valuable for delineating its precise morphology and to identify and characterize the associated ano...

Update on advances in molecular PET in urological oncology
Abstract Integrated positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) with 2-[18F]fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose (18F-FDG) has emerged as a powerful tool for the combined metabolic and anatomic evaluation of many cancers. In urological oncology, however, the use of 18F-FDG has been limited by a generally low tumor uptake, and physiological excretion of FDG through the urinary system. 18F-FDG PET/CT is useful when applied to specific indications in selected patients with urological malignancy. New radiotracers and positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MRI) are expected to further improve th...

Variants of meningiomas: a review of imaging findings and clinical features
Abstract Meningiomas are common neoplasms that frequently occur in the brain and spine. Among the 15 histological subtypes of meningiomas in the WHO classification, the incidence of meningothelial meningiomas is the highest, followed by fibrous and transitional meningiomas. These three subtypes account for approximately 80 % of all meningiomas, and thus could be regarded as typical meningiomas. For this reason, other uncommon histological subtypes may be considered as imaging variants, and diagnosis is often challenging for radiologists solely based on imaging features of typical meningiomas. In addition to t...

Reverse U-shaped horseshoe kidney accompanied by gibbus deformity and spina bifida
Abstract Horseshoe kidney (HSK) is the most common fusion anomaly of kidneys. Diagnosis of horseshoe kidneys is made by the demonstration of an isthmus or band of renal tissue between the lower poles of the kidneys. Connection between the upper poles of the kidneys is extremely rare. Several types of skeletal anomalies can be seen concomitantly with HSK. In our present case, where the patient was a 3-year-old male, the connection of renal tissue was located between the upper poles of the kidneys. Furthermore, there was an accompanying spina bifida and Gibbus deformity secondary to anterior hypoplasia of the T10 ve...

Contribution of metals to brain MR signal intensity: review articles
Abstract Various metals are essential nutrients in humans, and metal shortages lead to a variety of deficiency diseases. Metal concentration abnormalities may cause metal deposition in the brain, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most potent and sensitive technique now available for detecting metal deposition given the difficulties associated with performing brain tissue biopsy. However, the brain contains many kinds of metals that affect the signal intensity of MRI, which has led to numerous misunderstandings in the history of metal analysis. We reviewed the history of brain metal analysis with histolog...

Many faces of Meckel’s diverticulum and its complications
Abstract Meckel’s diverticulum is the most common congenital abnormality of the gastrointestinal tract. It is a true diverticulum containing all layers of the intestinal wall and identified as a saccular, blind-ending structure located on the antimesenteric border of the distal ileum. Most patients remain asymptomatic during their lifetime. Symptomatic cases are nonspecific and can present as small-bowel obstruction, diverticulitis, perforation, gastrointestinal bleeding, and rarely, a neoplasm. Therefore, the radiological diagnosis is of paramount important for proper patient management. (Source: Japanese Journal of Radiology)

A comprehensive review of imaging findings in human cysticercosis
Abstract Cysticercosis is a zoonotic disease most commonly affecting brain, eye and muscles, causing significant morbidity. Transmitted by faeco-oral route, this disease was endemic in many developing countries; it is now seen worldwide due to globalisation. Manifestations are produced by the mass effect of the parasite and by the immune response mounted by the host on the parasite. There are myriad clinical features and imaging findings. Radiological features depend on the number, stage and location of the parasite and associated complications. Knowledge of radiological findings is necessary to make an accurate d...
