Density map estimation with convolutional neural networks to count radiopaque markers on colonic transit studies
ConclusionThe proposed CNN generated promising results in counting the number of radiopaque markers on abdominal radiographs and offers the potential of automating the interpretation of colonic transit studies. (Source: Pediatric Radiology)

Childhood interstitial lung disease more prevalent in infancy: a practical review
AbstractChildhood interstitial lung disease (chILD) is a heterogeneous group of uncommon, mostly chronic pediatric pulmonary disorders characterized by impaired gas exchange and diffuse abnormalities on imaging. A subset of these diseases occurs more frequently in infants and young children than in older children and teenagers. Some of these disorders occur in certain clinical scenarios and/or have typical imaging features that can help the radiologist recognize when to suggest a possible diagnosis and potentially spare a child a lung biopsy. We review the clinical, histopathological and computed tomography features of chI...

Zika virus congenital microcephaly severity classification and the association of severity with neuropsychomotor development
ConclusionThese severity classification methods can be used to evaluate severity of microcephaly and possible association with developmental consequences. The semi-automated methods thus provide an alternative for predicting severity of microcephaly based on only one MRI sequence. (Source: Pediatric Radiology)

Hepatic manifestations of systemic disease: an imaging-based review
AbstractThe liver is responsible for many processes that maintain human metabolic homeostasis and can be affected by several pediatric systemic diseases. In this manuscript, we explore key pathological findings and imaging features across multiple modalities of a spectrum of congenital, metabolic and autoimmune disorders. Strengthening the radiologists ’ knowledge regarding potential hepatic manifestations of these systemic diseases will ultimately lead to improved care for pediatric patients.

Preliminary experience with black bone magnetic resonance imaging for morphometry of the mandible and visualisation of the facial skeleton
ConclusionMorphometric measurements of the mandible can be obtained from black bone MRI with comparable inter-rater agreement to that reported for cone beam computed tomography (CT). With improvements of 3-D rendering techniques and software, black bone MRI may become a radiation-free alternative to CT in children with facial deformities. (Source: Pediatric Radiology)

Magnetic resonance urography of congenital abnormalities — what the radiologist needs to know
We describe the embryology and pathophysiology of congenital abnormalities of the kidney and urinary tract as well as MR urography technique and findings. Congenital abnormalities of the kidney and urinary tract are classified into four groups: (1) obstruction (proximal, middle and distal), (2) budding with respect to the Wolffian duct (site and number of ureter), (3) ascent and rotation (ectopia, malrotation and fusion of kidney) and (4) anomaly of metanephric differentiation (dysplasia, megapolicalycosis).
