State of the Art: MR Imaging after Knee Cartilage Repair Surgery

Cartilage injuries are common, especially in athletes. Because these injuries frequently affect young patients, and they have the potential to progress to osteoarthritis, treatment to alleviate symptoms and delay joint degeneration is warranted. A number of surgical techniques are available to treat focal chondral defects, including marrow stimulat ...

(90)Y Radioembolization: Multimodality Imaging Pattern Approach with Angiographic Correlation for Optimized Target Therapy Delivery

Primary and metastatic liver cancers are responsible for considerable morbidity and mortality, and many patients are not curable at presentation. Therefore, new therapies such as radioembolization with yttrium 90 ((90)Y)-labeled microspheres are an alternative method to treat patients with unresectable primary or secondary liver tumors. Patient sel ...

Angiographic Evaluation and Management of Nonvariceal Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage

The purpose of this article is to review the roles of angiography, embolization, and various ancillary techniques in evaluating and managing gastrointestinal hemorrhage. Nonvariceal gastrointestinal hemorrhage typically resolves spontaneously or responds to medical or endoscopic management. Refractory hemorrhage may require angiography and transcat ...

Endometrial Ablation: Normal Imaging Appearance and Delayed Complications

Nonresectoscopic endometrial ablation techniques are being used as an alternative first-line management for menorrhagia. With these techniques, patients are at risk of developing delayed complications including painful obstructed menses, such as central hematometra and cornual hematometra, and postablation tubal sterilization syndrome. Pregnancy an ...

MRI of Labral and Chondral Lesions of the Hip

Unenhanced MRI, indirect MR arthrography, and direct MR arthrography have been used in the radiologic evaluation of patients with suspected labral tears and chondral lesions of the hip. The purpose of this article is to examine the existing evidence for the use of these techniques in patients with hip pain and suspected labral or chondral abnormali ...

Scapular Fractures: What Radiologists Need to Know

The purpose of this article are to review scapular anatomy and function, describe imaging features of traumatic scapular injury, and discuss the role of diagnostic imaging in clinical decision making after shoulder trauma. Knowledge of scapular anatomy, function, injury patterns, imaging appearance, and clinical management is important for the r ...

An Overview of Splenic Embolization

The purpose of this article is to define the role of splenic embolization in trauma patients and in patients presenting for treatment of thrombocytopenia and portal hypertension. This article reviews the indications, technical considerations, outcomes, and complications of splenic artery embolization. Transcatheter splenic artery embolization has a ...

CT-Definable Subtypes of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: A Statement of the Fleischner Society

The purpose of this statement is to describe and define the phenotypic abnormalities that can be identified on visual and quantitative evaluation of computed tomographic (CT) images in subjects with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), with the goal of contributing to a personalized approach to the treatment of patients with COPD. Quantita ...

ACR Manual on Contrast Media

This manual was developed by the ACR Committee on Drugs and Contrast Media of the ACR Commission on Quality and Safety as a guide for radiologists to enhance the safe and effective use of contrast media. The Committee offers this document to practicing radiologists as a consensus of scientific evidence and clinical experience concerning the use ...

Normal values for cardiovascular magnetic resonance in adults and children Nadine Kawel-Boehm1 , Alicia Maceira2 , Emanuela R Valsangiacomo-Buechel3

Morphological and functional parameters such as chamber size and function, aortic diameters and distensibility, flow and T1 and T2* relaxation time can be assessed and quantified by cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR). Knowledge of normal values for quantitative CMR is crucial to interpretation of results and to distinguish normal from disea ...
