The undulating line sign and other more common pediatric central catheter malpositions
AbstractCentral venous and arterial catheters are among the most commonly assessed support devices by radiologists. The position of these catheters must be carefully assessed to ensure proper placement, as malpositioning may lead to life-threatening consequences. Therefore, it is important for radiologists to understand the anatomy of the central vessels and the expected location of catheters. While this can be difficult in small children and especially in neonates, knowledge of the expected course and ideal termination of catheters allows for recognition of a malpositioned line, which may be unsuspected clinically. The pu...

A practical guide to optimize arterial spin labeling in neonates at 1.5  Tesla: what the radiologist needs to know
AbstractArterial spin labeling magnetic resonance imaging is highly suited to the exploration of brain perfusion in neonates and has the potential to provide relevant complementary information to neuroimaging studies, with insights into neurodevelopmental outcomes. Applying this technique within the first days of life is challenging and requires specific technical adaptations. The literature on this topic is scarce and heterogeneous, especially on 1.5-T scanners, limiting widespread clinical adoption. This paper aims to describe a simple approach for arterial spin labeling in neonates, with key considerations for radiologi...

Microaggressions in our daily workplace encounters: a barrier to achieving diversity and inclusion
AbstractOriginally coined in 1970 by Dr. Chester Pierce, the term “microaggression” encompasses any subtle insult or informal degradation of a member of any socially marginalized group. While incidents of blatant racism and sexism might be deterred by zero-tolerance policies in the workforce, microaggressions still plague our daily interactions with colleagues and patients alike. In this paper we define and categorize microaggressions using real-world examples, describe their repercussions and provide ways to appropriately respond to microaggressions on a personal and institutional level.

Contribution of fetal magnetic resonance imaging in fetuses with congenital heart disease
ConclusionFetal MRI performed in a population of fetuses with CHD provided additional information that altered prognosis, counseling or management in approximately one-third of the fetuses, mainly by identifying previously unknown anomalies in other organs and systems. (Source: Pediatric Radiology)
