OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the association between low back pain and bone marrow edema in lumbosacral transitional vertebra (LSTV) transverse processes, and to assess the prevalence of LSTV in a physically active population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Individuals with LSTV on coronal MRI studies were identified in a retrospective review by keyword search from PACS. In total, 140 cases were reviewed by two fellowship-trained musculoskeletal radiologists. Data on associated low back pain were collected from patient records at the time of the imaging...

Osteoblastomatosis (OBLT), also referred to as multifocal osteoblastoma (OB), is an unusual and recently described entity consisting of multifocal tumors histologically consistent with osteoblastoma and osteoid osteoma (OO) but radiologically mimicking a vascular bone lesion. OBLT treatment is based on aggressive procedures, such as amputation, en bloc resection, and chemotherapy. Only one previously reported case was successfully treated following a multimodal approach consisting of curettage, cryotherapy, intravenous bisphosphonates, and radiofrequency ablation...

Subacromial impingement syndrome results from irritation of the tendons of the rotator cuff muscles in the subacromial space and may manifest as a range of pathologies. However, subacromial impingement is a dynamic condition for which imaging reveals predisposing factors but no pathognomonic indicators. Also, the usual imaging features of subacromial impingement may be seen in symptomatic and asymptomatic patients. Therefore, imaging is able to detect tears and describe the risk factors of impingement but cannot confirm subacromial impingement...

OBJECTIVE: Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva is a rare genetic disorder characterized by congenital skeletal deformities and soft tissue masses that progress to heterotopic ossification. Deformities of the great toes are distinctive, and heterotopic ossification in the soft tissues follows an expected anatomic and temporal pattern. In addition to heterotopic ossification, osteochondromata, middle ear ossification, demyelination, lymphedema, and venous thrombosis are characteristic...

Iliac bone malformations are rare and result from early disturbance of the genetic and epigenetic processes that come together to form the pelvic girdle. We report the case of a 5-month-old boy found to have a duplication of the ilium and describe the likely causes of this very rare malformation.

Although spontaneous regression of herniated disk material has been reported in the lumbar and cervical spine, reports of complete spontaneous regression of calcified thoracic disk herniations are exceedingly rare. In symptomatic patients, surgery is typically the treatment of choice; however, conservative therapy with surveillance may allow time for spontaneous resolution and potentially avoid high-risk surgery. We report a 40-year-old woman with complete spontaneous resolution of a large calcified thoracic disk extrusion with conservative management over an 8-month period...

Herein, we report the case of a 4-year-old boy, who presented with a cortical lytic lesion of his distal tibia. It was located eccentrically, measured 2 cm in its craniocaudal diameter, and was associated with a lamella-like soft-tissue mineralization that resembled a periosteal reaction. Thus, the lesion's radiographic features were initially suggestive of an aggressive disease. However, further imaging revealed the lesion to be of cartilaginous origin and to extend into the metaphysis, thus creating the aspect of hyperplastic epiphyseal cartilage...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the significance of biceps tendon (BT) displacement and peri-bicipital hematoma on MRI in subjects with pectoralis major (PM) tears. We hypothesized that these features might be associated with tear severity at surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively identified MRI cases with PM injury and reviewed clinical, imaging, and surgical records. MR images were reviewed independently by two musculoskeletal radiologists to determine anterior displacement of BT (BT-disp, in mm) and the presence of triangular-shaped peri-bicipital hematoma...

Shirly Lee, Michael Austin Ross Reid
Superficial acral fibromyxoma is a benign, slow-growing soft-tissue neoplasm that has a predilection for the peripheries. Although considered benign, its risk of recurrence warrants consideration in the radiological differential diagnoses of acral tumors. To our knowledge, there has been minimal literature studying the radiological features of this entity. We present a case report with a discussion focusing on its clinical and radiological findings.

Sciatica is a highly prevalent cause of morbidity, commonly resulting from intra-spinal pathological processes. Many cases can have extra-spinal etiologies and can be clinically challenging. Certain scenarios should suggest an extra-spinal etiology, particularly total and revision hip arthroplasty, surgical hip dislocation, hip arthroscopy, and surgery in the lithotomy position. We review the post-operative clinical scenarios where sciatic neuropathy may occur, along with the pertinent imaging findings.

OBJECTIVE: This study evaluated the correlation between central and peripheral bone mineral density (BMD) of the ankle joint, using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). We also investigated whether peripheral ankle BMD could be used to identify individuals who were diagnosed with osteoporosis, using central DXA. METHODS: We recruited 134 volunteers aged 20-90 years who agreed to participate in this study. Central BMD of the lumbar spine and left femur, and peripheral BMD of the medial malleolus, distal tibia, lateral malleolus, and talus were measured with DXA...

Multicentric carpotarsal osteolysis (MCTO) is a rare skeletal disorder characterized by progressive carpal and tarsal destruction. The upper and lower limbs may be involved, leading to deformities and joint limitation. These anatomic features may be associated with progressive renal failure. The radiographs obtained during childhood showed a carpal and tarsal osteolysis and an asymmetrical involvement. Here, we report on the long-term clinical and radiological findings of three patients with skeletal manifestations of MCTO...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency between radiologists and a control group of non-radiologists. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This prospective cross-sectional study was conducted at the Swiss Congress of Radiology in May of 2016. Attendees (radiologists and non-radiologists) were asked to give a venous blood sample to measure vitamin D (25-hydroxyvitamin D) blood serum level. Vitamin D insufficiency was defined as < 50 nmol/l (30 ng/ml)...

OBJECTIVE: To utilize the 3D inversion recovery prepared ultrashort echo time with cones readout (IR-UTE-Cones) MRI technique for direct imaging of lamellar bone with comparison to the gold standard of computed tomography (CT). MATERIALS AND METHODS: CT and MRI was performed on 11 shoulder specimens and three patients. Five specimens had imaging performed before and after glenoid fracture (osteotomy). 2D and 3D volume-rendered CT images were reconstructed and conventional T1-weighted and 3D IR-UTE-Cones MRI techniques were performed...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy of fluoroscopy-guided facet joint injection for symptomatic spondylolysis and to analyze the outcome predictors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study included 108 patients who underwent fluoroscopy-guided facet joint steroid injection for symptomatic spondylolysis with follow-up medical records from January 2013 to December 2016. Among them, 47 patients underwent concomitant epidural steroid injection. Response to injection was assessed at the initial follow-up...

Interposition of the transverse ligament of the knee between fragments of an intercondylar eminence fracture was diagnosed using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a 11-year-old boy after a sports injury. The interposition was confirmed and corrected during arthroscopy. We report what we believe to be the first published case of isolated interposition of the transverse ligament in a minimally displaced fracture of the tibial eminence.
